“Punch Drunk is one of the most creative, driven and hardworking companies we have ever had the privilege of working with…we cannot wait to team with them again!”

Andy Gurjian and Brandon Carr

Rainier Beer / Pabst Brewing Company

We do live commercial + music + event + concert video and branding.

We’re well-versed across the spectrum of design and media, but our focus is produced and live video: concerts, commercials, galas, and all the live camera work and video elements that come together to make them shine.

Video Specialities, Skills, and Services include:

DIT & Acquisition

Multiple redundant capture and storage systems with full backup, RAID, and data verification.

Cinematography

From world-class directors of photography to the toughest guerilla shooters out there.

Post-Production

We’ve been cutting post since it was done tape to tape! We’ve picked up a few more tricks along the way and offer remote on-location editing.

4k & UltraHD

With great resolution comes great responsibility… Pioneers in bringing ultraHD and 4k to life with hybrid HD/ultraHD/4k.

Multicam

Experts in live switching, hybrid setups, and calling the show. Why use one camera when you can shoot on six?

Streaming & Remote Broadcasting

Increase your audience dramatically by streaming your event online. Host on our servers, charge for your event, and more.

Commercial & Film

We offer concept-to-delivery production of commercial and film projects, as well as video and creative support for other agencies.

Events, Auctions, Galas

Our event services include branded motion graphic design, presentation design, bidder recognition, and show-running.

Concerts & Music Festivals

We scale from a basic iMag to full-blown event solutions: promotional pre/post videos, social media integration, you name it.

System Design

Ground-up video system design for any event or complex application. Integrating projection, acquisition, streaming, iMag, etc.

VJ Mixing

Punch Drunk was built on VJ-mixing in the late nineties, and we’re still going strong. We work with EDM events or artists directly.

Motion Graphics & Animation

Animated logos and graphic elements add production value without blowing up the budget; we also create full-length animated spots.

Video Engineering

Got a complicated video project or event? Punch Drunk will come on board to design and engineer the entire system.

Projection & LED Walls

Live event video isn’t complete without a killer display system. Projection-mapped surfaces, LED walls, or just straight projection.

Wireless HD

Often used on-camera for commercial shoots, we take it a step further and let our shooters off the leash at concerts and events.

Specialty Video

Design and build of projects like a 5-foot inflatable HD wireless ball camera, MIDI-controlled video switcher, and more.

“Punch Drunk is amazing. In 20 years of KMFDM and 30 years as a concert-goer, I’ve not seen a more mind-blowing projection show.”

  • If you want the job done creatively and on time, call Punch Drunk! The first time I hired [founder and managing director] Jacob, I gave him short notice and a tight budget, he gave me maximum results, delivered on time. I have plans to use Punch Drunk Productions on more extensive projects this year and in the future. Did I mention, he’s also just a great person to work with?

    James “Shoes” WalkerMusician

  • Punch Drunk doesn’t disappear after a project is completed: they’ve been great about following up with us, even months after the job is done. During the design process, I often received email after hours, which shows their dedication to satisfying their clients and staying on top of deadlines. They worked hard on getting our new brand image perfect for us, and I cannot name the number of people who have made positive comments about the designs when we launched!

    Mark MeadowcroftPresident, Meadow Mortgage
  • We’ve worked with Punch Drunk Productions on several high-visibility, high-priority design projects. We’re impressed by their ability to fold all our ideas and desires into a cohesive package that effectively delivers our brand message.

It’s easy to recommend them to anyone looking for results!

    Christine LestiOwner & CFO, Windermere Napa Valley Properties

    Robin DunkleOwner, Our Big Idea

    Callie SherrardEvents Manager, UC4 Software
  • We love working with Punch Drunk. They have a wide range of skills so can handle most any type of job we throw their way. They’ve worked through the night and on weekends to meet tight deadlines. They’re responsive, dependable, accommodating and always pleasant to work with. And to top it all off, their rates are very reasonable.

    Robyn HallonquistDirector of Marketing Operations, Windermere Services Company
  • Punch Drunk! I am so happy with all the great work you did for my Company! The Design Work is amazing. I received my business cards this past weekend and I am completely in love with them. Thank you so much! I will be referring PD again and again!

    Robyn WoodmanBroker & Owner, The Woodman Group
  • Do you know how rare, and how un-stressing, it is to work with a company that really goes the distance? I bet you don’t. In this world of quick fixes, and people who talk to you while looking over your shoulder, or who see you only as a cash-cow, it comes as a major “breather” to know that someone cares about what you are doing, and thinks ahead for you. It is inspiring to have great technical and marketing advice, hard work, and total yet low-maintenance professionalism, and all for a workable rate. It’s about creativity with Punch Drunk – that is their bottom line. It was a great day for me when their talents and experience were recommended.

About

Originally started as a live visuals & projection company, Punch Drunk’s scope quickly expanded.

By 2005 our projects ran the gamut from building dynamic database-driven websites to producing live VJ-mixed video projection shows, from designing entire campaigns to putting our clients in the cloud.

In 2011 we began slowly shifting gears back to our original passion: video production and live events.

Who You Are

We work with a huge variety of businesses, brands, organizations, and artists. You might want to get Punch Drunk if you’re in the following categories:

  • Creative Agencies & Production Companies – we often partner with other agencies and white label our products as needed to get the job done.
  • Bands, DJs, Musical Artists – get us on board to design a touring video package or stage video like you’ve never seen before.
  • Commercial & Business – from soup to nuts we produce content: webcasts, spots, interstitials, sizzle reels – you name it.
  • Event Producers & Organizers – make your event shine with live video: projection, iMag, streaming, interviews, and audience interaction.

Who We Are

Over the years, Punch Drunk has formed countless small teams to tackle the various projects that come along: from a few people on a web design and development project to a dozen people running video at a music festival. Our philosophy is based on bringing together the right people at the right time for the job, instead of maintaining a large staff and large overhead. We call the folks that comprise our teams “core contributors.” Some of our talented freelance producers, designers, shooters, and artists are:

Jacob Stone

Founder & Managing Director

Punch Drunk was founded by Jacob Stone in 1998, then in his teens. Originally envisioned as a motion picture production company, Punch Drunk has grown wildly over the years. Toward the end of college, Jacob was offered jobs with two different bands – Queensryche and KMFDM – to provide live touring video. He toured with both bands from 2003 until 2009, simultaneously expanding Punch Drunk from a live video company into a full-fledged creative agency. The Seattle PI profiled Jacob in 2003.

In 2005, Punch Drunk created Opticlash: The VJ Battle in Seattle. The event was both well-received and well-sponsored. In 2007, Opticlash 2 reprised the first concept, this time as a featured event with the Seattle International Film Festival. In the years following Opticlash, Punch Drunk became immersed in brand strategy and graphic/web design, working with a host of international clients and non-profit organizations.

Today, Punch Drunk builds compelling videos and directs successful shoots and events based on our core contributors’ decades of combined experience, together with the bang-for-the-buck infrastructure and efficiency offered by cloud-based systems and tools.
