I LOVE Video Production!!

I have been involved in Television Production since January of 1973, when I started my career at KOSA-TV in Odessa, Texas.
When I began, videotape was still in the dinosaur age - hulking huge reel-to-reel machines that ran 2-inch wide tape. Commercials with products were done LIVE in our studios during newscasts! Weather graphics were created with plastic letters on a grooved menu board!
How incredible the changes in technology have been!

In 1983, after a short time working for production houses in the DFW and Austin areas, I settled in Austin and worked for Time Warner Cable - first as Production Manager, then as the Senior Producer-Director (my preferred role). After more than two decades there, I opened my own post-production and music studio, CrewsCreative, in 2007. This gives me the opportunity to work with my clients in a professional, but comfortable environment that promotes creativity. Plus, I have the freedom to work on projects I find challenging and rewarding for myself and my clients.

I have deep experience with the creative 30 second television commercial spot and I've always enjoyed how one must write, edit, and design for that short window. The ":30" is a sort of video haiku poem that requires true art to do well, especially on a limited budget.

Whether you need a broadcast commercial, a corporate or web video, or animation elements or logos – I have the experience to give you the finished product you have imagined and more. I'd love to work with you!

Some other things about Who I Am:

I've been honored to win several international awards for my long-form music compositions/performances (see my music page for details and samples).
As a recording artist, I've released two albums: "Cave of the Jaguar" and "Songs of Day, Songs of Night". My CD's and songs are available directly from CDBaby.com and worldwide on iTunes and other digital download sites. Learn more at my dedicated music-specific site, JaguarFeather.com. Hear my music directly on SoundCloud.

Also, as an author and filmmaker, I have an abiding interest in the human history of religion and spirituality. In recent years, I've studied and worked with modern and native shamanism. I've twice travelled to the Peruvian Amazon to work with indigenous tribal shamans and experience their powerful plant medicines and ceremonies. This has been a life-changing experience, leading to the creation of my studio, CrewsCreative.
 I also wrote an influential book on the New Testament and authored various websites on religion, shamanism, travel, and philosophy.
You can learn more about my adventures in the Amazon at my blog, "
