THE VISION

We’re integrated, developed, efficient—and we show results.

I formed Cimaglia Productions in 2002, right after graduating from college. When I looked around at the video and marketing industry, I saw how technology was opening up the field in an unprecedented way. I knew I didn’t want to work for anyone else—I didn’t want to get stuck in a stale position at a legacy agency. I wanted to help lead the industry’s future.

My early clients agreed with me, seeing the potential in digital campaigns led by innovation. That attitude has sustained us to this day. Other agencies adopt a business model I always found bloated and unnecessary, where bureaucracy overwhelms creativity and fresh ideas get shut down for the sake of meeting quotas. That’s not us. As Cimaglia Productions grew, I was conscious not to dig our roots so deep that we would lose our company’s agility—the thing that had gotten us to where we were.

Over the years, that original philosophy transformed into our core business model. While we’ve expanded our offices from Chicago into New York and Los Angeles, we’ve kept our team efficient, tailoring our talent and services to suit our clients’ needs exactly. No extra overhead, no inflated costs. With leading industry experts on hand, we guarantee the best results in video production, social-media exposure, creative strategy and market research for clients and budgets of any size, hiring only the people we need to get the job done. We’re integrated, developed, efficient—and we show results.
