We are the owners of a Multimedia Production Company based out of Salt Lake City, Utah known as Steed Productions. Currently our company consists of a husband and wife team of James Louis Steed and Molly Rose Steed. This site is where we post much of our personal content as well as many of the tools we use to create it.
We are both graduates from different film schools:
- Molly received her BA in from Washington University in Saint Louis, MO where she double-majored in both Film Studies and Literary Classics. She went on to receive a Masters in Film Archiving from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England.
- James received his BA from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT in Film and Media Arts.
Our mutual love for film and music brought us together and now we are working to create a sustainable company, Steed Productions, which will allow us to develop our own media projects represented by a variety of forms. To begin with, it is our intention to focus on several of the main elements of film production so that we may, one day, combine those elements into more elaborate pieces. We plan to accomplish this by systematically developing our technique and processes in:
- Musicianship and Scoring
- Soundscape Development
- Digital Asset Management
- Project Management
- Time and Resource Management
- Project Funding
- Content Distribution
- Content Promotion
- Existing Content Critique and Analysis
- Web Development
Over the past several years, James has worked toward developing an underlying process and plan that is designed to enhance the above-mentioned techniques through programmatic content development and distribution. Meanwhile, Molly worked her way up to becoming Head of (the) Moving Image and Sound Archive at the University of Utah .
The challenges of undertaking a venture such as this has provided us with an on-going story to tell. If you are interested, you take a look Behind the Scenes at our progress and to follow our story as we work to develop quality, relevant content on an extremely limited budget of both time and money. Molly Rose Steed has been working toward developing some interesting and helpful essays analyzing existing content that is currently directly related to our Night of the Snow Monster project which is scheduled for principle photography in the winter of 2018/2019. In addition to these elements of our site, feel free to check out our Resources that we are developing in order to help ourselves and other generate content. Also, we have a separate blog dedicated completely to running and sustaining a home business called Sustainable Home Business to aid people who want to gain more control of their health and eating habits while saving time and money in order to create and grow a home business on a limited budget.
It is our hope that, by sharing our story and providing helpful advice and media to others hoping to generate, manage and distribute their own content, we can help people to achieve their own goals while achieving our own.
