About Our Company 

figMedia Inc is an Illinois Corporation, founded in 1993, incorporated in 2003. We began as an event services company and have expanded client services to include the talents of our long time crew members and to fulfill the demands of our clients for more relational media for their products and services. We find our passion in rising to the challenges of our diverse and socially minded clientele. Our social media deliverables, we call them our pantry of digital snacks, evolved from both client dialogues and our own marketing experience. Our filmmakers and producers all study the science of social and emotional intelligence and we continue to hone our skills in this arena.  It is our ability to interact and evolve our relationships that is important to our mass appeal. Our expanded ability to relate to one another and use digital imagery as a medium is the key to crossing what used to be cultural and diversity divides. While current and up to date technology is important, it is not just the slick video production that brings us current. Opportunities to learn more about the bigger world and represent cultures using our media as medium are tantamount to the success of the imagery.

CANARYVILLE TO BONNEVILLE

PROJECT

Canaryville to Bonneville is currently in production. While we are still filming this project, we think it is relevant to share our experience creating a 30 page script for a short feature film in collaboration with Brackenbox, a family owned business on the South Side of Chicago, that chronicles the history of the family and the business they built with their love for racing. Above you will find our teaser of one of the shoots and some behind the scenes photos from our recent filming in the Salt Flats of Utah.

PENINSULA CHICAGO 

PROJECT 

This scripted production is one of our favorites to produce as attention to detail is paramount. We spent the day breaking down the shots from the script to make sure that they clearly illustrate what to do in an emergency. In our previous film, we shut down a hallway in the hotel to create "smoke," with a fog machine. This meant alerting all guests that we were filming and that the smoke wasn't real. This year we decided to tackle the "smoke," digitally. This saved the hotel valuable time and staff and sped up our production.
