EXCELLENCE. REDEFINED.

Our Mission

We conceive and create killer content at every stage of the game and use integrated marketing strategies to super charge YOU and YOUR brand or product. Maximum wattage is only a phone call away. Are you ready to feel the wrath of 1.21 jiggawatts? 

Our Values

We believe working hard and smart go hand in hand and we never settle on the first idea that hits the page. When you choose to work with us, you get a full service team that’s as equally invested in your brand/product as you – because our name is tied to it forever from that point forward and that means something very important to us.

Marketing

From concept creation through to production execution, we’ll develop and showcase a fresh take on what makes you great at the things you do. Commercials, print, web and social media are all familiar spaces that we can leverage to make your company, service, brand, or product stronger, buzz worthy and the heart of watercolor chats.

Short Form

We specialize in short-form content like commercials, movie or game trailers, and corporate video. We know how to get the most across in the shortest amount of time leaving your audience begging to see more, calling you immediately and sharing your content with all their close friends and colleagues.

Long Form

Long form content is more than video with a double digit run time; it’s specialized storytelling. With films and series on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon and sold across the world, we can come in at any state of development, production or post production to assist or lead the charge with your documentary, narrative film, or live event.

Crowdfunding Campaigns

With our years of experience, insight and on-going familiarity with the ever-changing crowdfunding space, we can make sure your campaign stands out, becomes memorable and establishes you and your project as a longterm brand.

Our Team

Our man with the plan, Justin is the go-to guy for broadcasters and commercial clients alike. He's earned his 6 Emmy's and 16 Promax statues (as he likes to CONSTANTLY remind us) by helping others take their visions and make the impossible possible. Basically, your executive producer and creative director rolled into one. We could go on and on listing all the incredible brands Justin has created high-impact content for, like NBCSports, Cointreau, Hennessy and even The Philippine Tourism Department, but that wouldn't begin to prove how cool, calm and confident this guy is. Broadcasters like MTV Networks in the USA, FuelTV in Australia and Mexico's Televisa turn to Justin's work for the same reason you'll discover, too: this guy knows what he's doing.
Somewhere beyond the fifth dimension and just before lunch time, you can find Rob McCallum building elaborate story-driven worlds, playing with action figures or air drumming to some favorite tunes. This Emmy-nominated and award-winning filmmaker has some solid high-fives from NBC, CBS, CBC Radio•One, WIRE, /Film and Destructoid throughout his playtime aka his career. He’s conjured over $350K via crowdfunding, is a mainstay on the film festival scene and usually says, “yes” except when saying, “no.” He’s obsessed with all things Jim Henson, has a deep love of Masters of the Universe and one day wants to visit Duckburg.
Jay’s been around the block a few too many times and has picked up 26 local and national awards including 10 Emmy’s along the way. (No, he didn’t just find them…) His travels have taken him down writing, producing, editing, and directing roads, and finally brought him home to the world of brand marketing where he now lives comfortably. He’s rebranded ESPN Classic, NBC Chicago, and notably, CSN to CSN Chicago to NBC Sports Chicago with award-winning creative and marketing strategies under his guidance. If you have a brand that needs love, Jay is all hugs and will take yours to the next level. He HATES when people say they “think outside the box”. UGH. There shouldn’t be one in the first place.
As one of the original team members of Creative Dynamic, James has been an integral part of our companies continued growth and success. He knows how powerful the right song, the right score, the right composition can make a simple project soar. Through all the craziness at MTV, Junx Recordings and Essential Beats Chicago, James brings over 18 years of trusted experience to the team like few can. Just join him for a scotch in the engineering studio and ask him all about the Global Top 10 tracks he did. You’re sure to see why he’s a valued part of our team.
We would ride through Mordor and back with Heather leading the team. She is our clutch many-handed dynamo: writing, directing, editing and producing (and she makes it look easy!). Corporate video or indie feature film, Heather brings quick, professional and invaluable intelligence to simple and complex projects alike. Her wide range of abilities has been snatched up by major brands like Amazon, Special K, Nationwide and more, and her love for this business is contagious.
Sean is our man on the camera. Whether on set or on location, he's done it all, and he always comes through with a smile and a great shot. For the last 15 years, Sean has traveled the world, shooting incredible people and places and winning awards along the way. His eye has helped National Geographic, HBO, CNN and a dozen other broadcasters create eye-grabbing content. Toss him a Rubik's Cube between takes and step back slowly . . .
When looking for the best, accept no substitutes. That is why Kevin stands alone in a crowded field of wannabes. Kevin’s real estate prowess has made him one of the most sought-after video artists around and gives him an incredible eye for detail. Regardless of whether he’s manning a hoverboard or obsessing over getting the perfect shot, this veteran knows how to get the job done.
Dan is not an enigma. Nor is he wrapped in mystery and trapped in a puzzle, or however the old chestnut goes. Dan, however, does the magical wizardry in and out of the studio that constantly stuns and amazes our teams. Something he helps us understand better every day is how each project has its own feel, its own sound, and how important it is to get it right. If he's working with a rock band, he dials in that speaker sound that shakes our hips. If sports are the order of the day, he makes you feel every crunch at the goal line, every gasp of the crowd, every sneaker squeak on the hardwood floor. Dan is not an enigma, but how he does what he does sure can be.

Handling our social media firestorm across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, Sara is our keen conduit to the world. A voracious appetite of everything online from commerce to entertainment, her rare and unique prowess for spotting trending topics in advance, coupled with her attention to detail keeps her at the digital forefront of everything important. Moreover, Sara’s fascination with true crime documentaries, love of Mexican food and dry sense of humor makes her an excellent accomplice and criminal partner at Creative Dynamic.
Gabby was most likely voted “The Czarwena of Awesome” in high school, and we’re glad she’s on our team! She’s the one who makes the impossible possible, all the while making it look easy. She’s as comfortable leading the charge whether it’s running a sales team or labor force as she is playing a key team-player role, since project management comes naturally to her. That’s why she has her hands in just about everything going on at Creative Dynamic. It’s what she does.

Company History

2016

  • NBC Sports Chicago

    After spending several years with NBC Sports Chicago, turning their on-air/digital brand into something magical and different. But, like all good things, there comes a time when you need to move on and that is just what he did. Justin decided to take his ball and head to another playground and launched Creative Dynamic.

  • The vision is simple

    The vision is simple: create a boutique company that believes its clients are actual people and to ALWAYS answer the phone! He opened the doors with the power and resources of a major production studio, with ALL the bells and whistles, so CD could consistently raise the bar and create the best possible solutions for each client...no matter what. On time. Every time.

2015

  • Creative Dynamic

    In 2018, CD began taking steps to expand its growing roster of creatives spanning the country and internationally, giving CD the ability to take on a wide variety of projects from coast to coast and beyond. Hungry yet humble, Creative Dynamic is the perfect blend to meet all the production, marketing, and unique creative needs of any client. Period.
