Our History

 
 

In 1979, the company was founded as Talentape, inc. by Northwestern University graduates, Joyce Stern Greenberg and her son, Earle Greenberg. This dynamic duo's talent agency pioneered the use of 'videotaped auditions for orchestras and variety acts throughout the midwest.

In 1980, armed with his degree in Tv/Film Production, Earle expanded the business with VideOccasions - offering video production services to the hundreds of clients booking entertainment for weddings and other events.

In 1983, Talentape was sold and Earle completed his MBA from the University of Illinois while simultaneously teaching Advanced Tv Production on campus. In an effort to combine his experience in creative video production and his education in strategic marketing, he expanded the video production staff and started a corporate video production division called Pro Motion Teleproductions.. Since then, Earle has produced and directed promotional and training videos for hundreds of corporations and associations. A sample client list and a variety of demos are viewable on the web site.

On January 1, 2004, in honor of their 25th year in business, the Greenberg's creative market segmented companies, VideOccasions, Pro Motion Teleproductions and LifeStorease were combined into one brand, Chicago Videoworks, Inc.

In February 2008, Chicago Videoworks was featured in Crain's Chicago Business in an article on personal corporate video biographies.

In the summer of 2008, testing began with live multi-camera webcasting. In September, the service was made available to our corporate clients through www.webcastermaster.com and in 2009 was made available for weddings through www.weddingdaywebcast.com.

November 2013 brought with it new challenges and opportunities as we opened an office in the Phoenix, Arizona area in order to better serve our existing medical clients in the region.

These are just some of the highlights of our 37+ years in a business which is continually evolving and expanding and where we have strived to be first in creativity and innovation, in order to better serve our clients and to keep us really interested and excited about what we do.
