We’re on a mission to thrill and engage audiences through live video.

Punch Drunk was founded in 1998 by Jacob Stone: VJ mixing at underground dance parties and shooting video. We took a detour to learn brand design and web development and did some rock tours along the way.

Now we sit at the intersection of live video, content creation, broadcast production, directorial and creative.


We believe in bringing together the right people at the right time for the job, instead of maintaining a large staff and large overhead. We work in “tiger teams” of employees and contractors together to get a lot done in a short amount of time. Check out some of our talented producers, directors, designers, shooters, and artists below.

                                        • Punch Drunk is one of the most creative, driven and hardworking companies we have ever had the privilege of working with. Not only did they take our vision and turn it into reality, they brought their own thoughts, ideas, and creative elements to the table, pushing the envelope and taking our event to the next level...we cannot wait to team with them again!

                                        • Punch Drunk Productions helped us turn our vision into a reality. They made the process easy, exciting, and affordable on a non-profit budget. The final product was beyond our expectations and celebrated by PATH staff, board members, and supporters from around the world!

                                        • Political communications is the ultimate test for a production team. With shortened timelines, a complex message, and a shoestring budget, Punch Drunk Productions brought our mission to life and put our issue on the ballot!

                                        • 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!

                                        • 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.

                                        • After a frustrating experience with another web designer, we found Punch Drunk Productions. They immediately understood the direction and goals we wanted our site to encompass. Their input and knowledge was professional and cutting edge. Their quick and accurate turn around time was exactly what we needed and feel very confident in long term service with them.

                                        • 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.

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?
