“We have a rapport and a friendship with her,” says Method Productions’ Luis Rodriguez. “It just made sense to do it together.”
Method Productions is a 2-year-old full-service video production company that Gabe Juhnke and Rik Dubiel started from their homes.
They now share space with Burly Studios on Commerce Street.
“We were collaborating with (Burly) on some bigger projects,” Rodriguez says. “We co-located because it made sense.”
As Method Productions needed studio space, though, it started using Waite’s studio next to Caffe Moderne. When she learned her lease would not be renewed so the Morris, Laing, Evans, Brock & Kennedy, Chartered law firm could expand there, Waite and Method Productions began talking.
“We’ve got a whole collection of clients who need and want this,” Rodriguez says of having an on-site studio.
“It’s just part of our growth and our success.”
Method Productions does a range of video production.
“If you want a professionally produced video that’s short and sweet, we do that,” Rodriguez says. “If you want something elaborate, we do that, too.”
He says the company wants “to be Target for video production,” meaning he says it offers quality work at affordable prices.
“We are looking to kind of make the video production process custom to the customer.”
Rodriguez says a studio and office in the same space will help with that.
“We’re excited to do it. It’s a big jump for us, and we think it’ll just take us to the next level.”
