Services include creative, production, post-production, in-house studio and a mobile production truck division. We specialize in all digital media with a focus on commercial broadcast advertising. In addition to commercial film and video, our body of work also includes training videos, corporate promotional, sales & marketing videos and live event/concert production.
Filmmakers, television productions, musicians who come to Dakar Studio to use the soundstage and recording facilities, will need support that they won’t be able to bring with them. They will get the support, talent and crew from surrounding communities. Building a soundstage in Ohio would “create jobs and make ancillary services stronger.
