We could give you the typical post house sales pitch
about how our editors are so on top of their editorial games
they can’t be seen by the naked eye.
Or how our software and equipment is so new and shiny
it doesn’t exist on the normal time-space continuum.
Or how our producers can bend time, space and budgets to their will.
Instead, let’s talk about our love of storytelling.
Our respect for Christopher Nolan movies, 80’s New Wave and video games that require no more than two buttons.
How music defines the most important moments of our lives. How experiences win over “stuff.”
Let’s talk about why we should all take road trips with our families.
Where to find the best margarita and Sunday brunch.
How winning a poker hand is more fulfilling than any perfect grade we scored in school.
Because, ultimately, what makes a post house great isn’t what they can do or even what they’ve done.
It’s who they are.
Side Chops is a creative collective of talented people who cherish the experiences of life
and strive to communicate those experiences through the work we create.
We bring that same interest, excitement and care to your story.
And that’s a lot more important than the typical post house sales pitch.
Shelby spent his early years wrangling clowns
and shepherding wigs across Dallas.
He has since curated art shows, befriended
Grammy winning Aussies and designed
award-winning artwork for a Texas winery.
And worked on an immeasurable amount of motion advertising. He’ll apply all his knowledge and expertise to any project you bring him.
Joe narrowly avoided a life of excess and hedonism. He toured nationally in a punk band
in which he played bass and sang, couch surfing while looking for someone to give him a back tattoo of Bjork and Thom York as Mary and Jesus.
Now he’s a dad. It’s practically the same life.
He gets great performances from newbies and old pros alike. And he can tear a phone book in half.
See if you can spot Marcie in the Matt Dillon movie Liar’s Moon. They shared popcorn. Or you may
have run across her at numerous new wave concerts back in the 80’s. She could be in your travel photos because she’s been all over. You’ve most likely heard her on radio or tv. She’s an industry vet who knows exactly where her son and husband are at all times.
That’s good producing.
