Arnold Martinez
I’m a 30 year old graphic designer and filmmaker living in Chicago. I have been designing and making films for about 17 years - winning awards and prizes for my work. I pride myself on my eagerness and ability to learn. I am fascinated by the endless ways in which we as artists have control of the narrative. Due to my attention to detail, I am constantly absorbing ideas from my everyday life. I am very passionate about my work and driven to satisfy my clients.

Luis Cardenas
HELLO! My name is Luis. I am a filmmaker, graphic designer, and an illustrator. My background is in print design but I have expanded my horizons into film. I am a former member of the production team behind Chicago Underground Comedy operating out of the Beat Kitchen and I'm currently the director of photography and editor for BSP Films. My most interesting work stems from helping other people shine. There are many talented folk out there and I strive to capture them at their best. I love learning about the process behind many other creative endeavors, not just my own.

Logan Bowes

I'm a graduate of The Harold Ramis Film School at The Second City in Chicago. I have a strong video/film background and have been working on productions in the South Gulf coast region and here in Chicago for the last 8 years. I moved to Chicago because A) I've always wanted to and B) to attend the film school which has been the best decision I've ever made. Since I've been in this school I've directed one documentary about Chicagoland video arcades, and two comedy sketches. I'm still in post-production on my final thesis short film, titled "The Leviathan", about an arcade owner and his lackeys trying to handle an abrasive customer while attempting to get people into their struggling arcade by promoting the mythological game, Polybius. In 2018 I've worked extensively as a freelancer on various shoots around town ranging from corporate/conference videos to short films to documentaries. I've done a little bit of everything ranging from camera operating, steadicam, DP, sound mixing, video editing, color correction, and more. I'm currently seeking full-time employment at a production house or, if possible, just start getting enough freelance work that I can work for myself.
