the start & future
Nicholas and Jonathan met at a job, which they did not love to say the least, which is not an atypical experience. However as the saying goes, everything happens for a reason and this story isn’t any different. Through this job both men discovered they share a mutual interest in film, promotional video and starting a business that can execute all these and more. But every journey has its steps.
This mutual interest began as casual conversation and nothing more. They only spoke at work and when they clocked out, so did their communication. Then one day, during one of these casual conversations Nicholas mentioned to Jonathan that he had a few un-produced scripts he had written. Jonathan asked to read one of them. The script was sent and the rest is (going to be) history. After reading it, Jonathan brought up the idea of producing it. In order to do this, communication outside of work needed to clock back in. And it did.
With some help from family, friends and an awesome crew and cast Nicholas and Jonathan produced their first short film. And sure, there hiccups along the way, but Nicholas and Jonathan proved they had the ability to work through these together as a team.
After producing the short the film (you can find a teaser on our portfolio) both men realized they worked together pretty well. They also realized they enjoyed working together. And given that both enjoyed the process of creating and working together, they knew they could do so much more. And they came to this conclusion via a casual conversation at work. The communication clocked-in outside of their day-to-day job. And on a near daily basis, Nicholas and Jonathan discuss how they want to ensure Coley & Hochman achieves its goals.
Nicholas and Jonathan are business partners, but most importantly they’re friends who enjoy working together and share similar long term goals. When you choose Coley & Hochman Productions you’re choosing a duo who is putting your vision first. You are choosing a duo who is constantly and consistently communicating about how to achieve their goals and about how to help the client to achieve theirs.
So understand, while Coley & Hochman Productions is a business, we are also two people who are passionate about creating video. We are passionate about helping the client. Just like Nicholas and Jonathan enjoy working together, you will enjoy working with Coley & Hochman Productions.
