Where we are,
and where we are going.

Creative Dynamic is an EMMY Award winning media firm and production company. We specialize in Original Series, Documentaries, & Commercial Advertisements.

We thread emotional storytelling throughout each piece of content that we
develop. By focusing on the human element – the people at the centre of all CD
projects – we’re able to create honest, impactful stories that not only entertain,
but move audiences.

We have productions underway in Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami and Los
Angeles; and there are many more in development and pre-production that we
are excited to make a reality in the next 6-12 months.

Justin Schoenrock

Founder & CEO

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.

With years of experience in the financial sector, Carlos has rightly earned his nickname “The Money-Master”. Serving as the in-house Line Producer, Carlos ensures budgets are as streamlined and optimal as can be. In addition to overseeing the numbers game, Carlos tends to the overall business needs of the company and its creative team. Carlos is also a Tequila connoisseur with a highly sophisticated palate; stop by our office for a meeting and he will likely treat you to a personalized tasting from our top shelf bar.

Nicole McClain

Dir. Post-Production

Nicole’s a gifted storyteller who’s been crafting tales since she was a child which became the ultimate Christmas gift for her relatives. Though she focuses on telling stories with pictures through editing, her resume reads as a well-rounded producer capable of creating anything and everything. Though most passionate about TV drama, she’s an 80s child who loves to mosh to 90s grunge, run and read and has set her sites on a future full of even more varied experiences than her past credits.
