An Introduction

SurtzMedia, LLC is a creative production firm founded by Christian J. Surtz that works with small to mid-size brands & nonprofits committed to doing good in the world. We’re not about manufacturing a message - we want to illuminate what’s already so remarkable about the people and organizations we work with.

Currently with two full-time staff and a trusted network of freelancers, our studio is located in Batavia, IL. In three years we’ve completed projects for over 50 clients everywhere from Albuquerque to Boston, with a majority in the greater Chicago area.

As we prepare for a full rebrand/relaunch in 2021, we’re actively seeking to establish meaningful, intentional partnerships with organizations that want to tell stories that matter. We seek to be trailblazers in combining a journalistic and cinematic approach, pairing top-quality production and RED cameras with a care that recognizes the dignity of every individual & their story.
