DMK Productions has deep roots in the creative arts arena. Our principal started out in the music, recording and live production industries and then transitioned into advertising, marketing and sales, while still keeping his hand in the production pie.
Along the way – video, photography and copywriting were brought into the fold and creating content became our specialty.
Today at DMK Productions it’s all about storytelling for businesses and ministries. Telling the story that captures the viewer, reader or listener’s attention, and keeps his or her attention. Today, it’s all about capturing and creating content that gets to the heart of your subject and the heart of your viewer, listener or reader. Today, it’s about helping our clients and ministries to elevate the message – whether it be on the web, via broadcast channels or some form of digital communication.
