WHAT 20 WEST MEDIA DOES
20 West Media produces all types and genres of video and film, from corporate video to documentaries to wedding cinematography and live event coverage.
“We capture moments. We capture stories. We capture life.”
Our company is known for catering our visual projects to the specific needs of our clients in a creative and cost-effective manner.
HOW 20 WEST MEDIA GOT STARTED
Tony Jean was working in the news business with companies such as CNN, ABC, ESPN & News 12 Long Island for several years. Fresh out of college, Jean Impert started composing music for sound libraries in NYC and his work was featured on television shows on most of the major TV networks from ABC, NBC, BET, TruTV and CBS. As long-time friends, they decided to put their creative energies together to form a visual media production company.
20 West Media explains: “Jesus is by far the greatest influence in our lives. Our relationship with Him determines our work ethic, the way we interact with our clients, the business principles we operate by and the reason we do what we do in the first place. We understand that this company is merely another avenue of worship. God has given us the creative gifts we have and we respond in thankfulness by using those gifts to the best of our ability.”
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not marble. – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Watching movies. Big surprise, huh? LOL!
IF THEIR LIFE WERE A MOVIE
20 West Media explains: "It would be the story of Jesus working in us to, first, change us and, change the world around us through the power of His grace. We’re all unfinished pieces on this side of eternity."
ADVICE TO YOUNGER SELF
The advice we would give our younger selves would be to be more disciplined and serious about creativity and productivity. Create, create, create! We would urge our younger selves to work on our selective crafts so much that it would more quickly become a part of us, and this way we would develop our own creative voices earlier on.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN FUTURE
20 West Media says: “Aside from the wedding cinematography, which is really picking up, we have a couple of docu-style series’ in development. Stay tuned!”
