A Message From Fred Paddock
I learned film production—the creative aspects and the business disciplines—at my father’s feet. When I was young, I had no idea who Robert Altman was, but I was proud to discover my father Charles Paddock shot some of the legendary director’s early films.
Since my father started our company over 60 years ago, we have enjoyed steady growth in every venue of the production business: national/local television commercials, feature films, documentaries, corporate pieces and music videos, and from its earliest stages—a pioneer in Direct Response Television.
And over those years, we’ve adapted with every revolution in technology: film, video, non-linear editing, multiple digital formats, and of course the web all changed the way media is created and delivered. And as a full service film and video production company, we can provide anything you need, in or out of Kansas City. While technology continues to evolve, so has our “family.” We are proud to bring on our fourth generation of Paddocks as well as some the industry’s leading strategic, creative and production staff to support our growing business.
Of course, one of the most rewarding parts of our business has been the success we’ve created for our all of our clients. Last year we produced three of the most successful DRTV campaigns and are on track to produce over 50 new spots this year. We have consistently produced winners in every category we play in and appreciate the long history with our clients.
Because we have experience in all areas of creative development and production and have proven we can guide a campaign from a basic idea to success, we welcome the chance to meet and explore how we might be able to help with any product or project you have.
