Products & Services
With your looks and our video...
A short video on a new product or service can help your sales and marketing efforts, plus valuable time for both you and your customers.

Each video can be customized with interviews, animation, graphics, archival video footage, original music, still images and more. 

Don’t sweat it. The video will look good, it’ll get to the point and get the conversations going.
Event Promo/Recap
Capture the moment
Want to create some buzz for your event? Want to creatively use content from an event for your website?

JLP gets you and your viewers past those 90 minute panels with innovative video that can be used before or after an event. And people will actually watch and find it useful.

Here is a sample: 
Corporate event/roadshow 
Live performance 
Personal and Company Profiles
Let the world see the real you.
Sometimes to sell your service or product, you need to tell your story in your own words rather than in a brochure. Profile videos do that, and no, you don’t need to be a pro on camera. 

JLP works directly with your firm throughout the process, from scripting and interview preparation to editing and post-production. 

Past and current projects: 
Management/Employee Profiles 
CTA/Manager Profiles (NFA Compliant) 
Company Overviews
Animation and Graphics
Hey, that looks cool, because it is.
No, we’re not Pixar or Dreamworks, but we don’t charge what they do either.

Cool graphics and helpful animations help make a video move along, help people understand what you’re trying to say and, let’s face it, make your firm look like you really did hire Hollywood to do your video.
Company Bumpers
Bumper = Branding, and you are always branding
Your firm works hard at marketing its logo and image. Bumpers take that up to another level.  

So what’s a bumper? Take a look at these and you’ll get it, not to mention some ideas for your very own bumper.
We love history and stories worth telling.
Some things are worth celebrating, commemorating and documenting. 

For companies celebrating a milestone, or that have a story worth sharing, a longer documentary can be powerful. Take a look at John Lothian Productions’ full-length feature celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). Another is in the works for RJ O’Brien & Company’s 100th anniversary.
You are moments away from having the perfect video or website to match your company goals.
