Video Age Productions, Inc., was founded in 1984. Our original primary mission was to produce educational materials for the Leadership Institute at Ripon College. Since then we've expanded our educational programs and we also serve commercial and industrial clients nationwide by creating effective marketing, training, and promotional programs, on DVDs and related web formats.
Video Age professionals are, above all else, communicators. We understand the power of electronic technology, but we also recognize that ideas should never be subordinated to technological gimmickry. We know how to express ideas effectively in language, imagery, and nuance. We continue to stress education, training, marketing, and promotion as our major areas of expertise, and we remain devoted to the highest standards of excellence, economy, and customer service. We work hard to make our clients look good, and we usually make the process enjoyable for everyone involved.
