Making Kernels Pop!

When agencies and marketers need creative videos to tell stories in a fun way, they turn to us.

People come to us with a kernel of a concept or full script but need a creative partner to produce it into a compelling video that people want to watch. 

Imagine if you didn't have to come up with all of the ideas.
Or have all of the answers. 

People rely on us again and again, to deliver expertly produced, directed, and edited video projects. Turn-Key. Sometimes for broadcast, sometimes for TikTok. Frequently for both.  

Send us an email no matter where you are in the development process. Let's make stuff.

Origin Story

We started by booking film+video jobs on Craigslist in 2008. We shot for anyone who would hire us. Our first break came when the W Hotel needed a marketing video for two of its hotels. We put everything we had into it. The client loved it. 

Our next break came when we shot a series of brand films for a digital agency. They loved it. It won awards. People wanted to know who made it. Then they hired us. 

In 2014 we became CounterTake. We got a bank account. And Insurance. 

We grew. The cameras grew. Grip trucks replaced pickup trucks. Story took priority.  A producer joined the team. VFX and Color became our specialty. This led to more work.

Today we continue to take risks and push boundaries for our clients.

In December of 2021, we bought a building and are developing it into a boujee commercial production studio with a full post-production space. Steps from the French Quarter in New Orleans. A place where you'll like bringing your clients.
