Our story begins many years ago, really. Dan, the founder of Ludeman Productions, was born with a drive to create. From a young age his parents encouraged his love of art, music, and film. His first guitar was a gift from his father and the rest was history. He had a successful career in the music industry for over a decade before discovering a love for creating moving art.
On an average day in the late winter of 2013, Dan picked up his wife’s DSLR camera and spent the day taking photos. He pushed the camera to its limits, always shooting in manual to truly curate his images the way he envisioned them. It wasn’t long before he started dabbling with the video settings as well. On May 17, 2013 he filmed his first wedding.
That first year with the camera was life-changing. He founded Ludeman Productions and started filming more weddings, concerts, music videos, and even some commercial work. In 2014 he landed a full-time position with a regional production company as a video producer. While there, Dan and the production team created work for local and regional businesses, going on to win 13 Telly awards and eight Addy awards, including Best of Show. But as requests for Dan’s own work grew, he made the difficult decision to leave the production company and dedicate all of his time and energy to his own company.
In order to address the growing demand for outstanding video production, Dan has begun bringing on a team of equally talented producers, videographers, photographers, and writers. Jessica, Dan’s wife and a creative in her own right, has now began working full-time for Ludeman Productions as well.
Ludeman Productions has a ton of amazing projects in the works that we can’t wait to show the rest of the world. We have taken on national clients, captured over 80 weddings, worked on short films and documentaries, created dozens of long-form videos for our commercial clients, animated logo designs, filmed love stories, reviewed the latest production gear, shot aerial videography and so much more. We can’t wait to see what the future holds! We hope you’ll join us!
