At County Fair, we know there are different ways to approach a project. Our approach centers around the idea of simply doing it right. This philosophy encompasses everything we do, from the way we listen to our clients' needs, to the way we schedule and budget, to the way we consult and communicate with everyone involved in a project, and the way we leverage our network of contacts around the world. It includes the way we manage our sets, from locations and transportation, to insurance, permits, and crew safety. And it includes our commitment to environmental responsibility, which we hope to share with our clients.
When we produce a project, we represent our clients, and we understand the importance of that privilege. When a client creates their best work, it reflects well on us; we understand the importance of that too. Each project gets our full attention, from start to finish, regardless of size or scope. Doing it right does not mean overspending- we understand the constraints of the modern day project budget. That's why we keep our rates competitive, and provide transparent estimating and billing on every job.
After 6 excellent years producing with Shake Productions, Stephen Michael Price launched County Fair Productions in late 2012. After years of sharing clients' and crews' concerns about waste, and environmental responsibility on set, our production team developed a systematic approach to resolving those concerns, and started a company committed to producing projects in an environmentally responsible way.
To date, County Fair Productions has not only produced a slew of successful still photography, video, and events- we have also offset over 200 Metric Tons of C02, recycled over 1000 pounds of paper, plastic, and aluminum, and have composted over 500 pounds of food waste into local soil along the way. And we are just getting started. With offices on both coasts, and a wide network of resources across continents and disciplines, we're positioned to help our clients create the best work they can.
We offer a full range of production services to streamline or complement any project.
