Explore Media Opens Chicago Commercial Production Office

Explore Media, a full-service commercial and digital production house, announced they are opening a commercial production office in Chicago. The award-winning company is expanding to meet a growing demand for content for the Chicago advertising community. Located at 320 N. Damen Ave., in the heart of the Industrial Corridor near the West Loop, the new space will feature full-service pre-production and production in addition to their 4K editing, animation, motion graphic and finishing post-production capabilities.   


Started in 2003 to produce commercials and digital content for agencies and brands, Explore Media has grown to add over 50 industry awards to their credit, including Emmy nominations, ADDY, Telly, and Communicator awards. As their clientele expands, the need for a physical location to better serve the Chicago advertising market has become a priority. The announcement comes one year after Business Development Manager Sarah Gitersonke joined the team, helping to bring on new agency clients, including: O'Keefe Reinhard & Paul, Plan B, Third Street and Olson Engage; to produce work for brands like Groupon, Keystone Light, Go RVing, Home Chef and more.

The past year has been one of growth for our company, particularly in the national commercial productions we’ve produced for the Chicago advertising market. With so many of our clients, production partners, crew, and team members already located in the area, it only makes sense that our team expand here in Chicago. We’re excited to join this exciting market with so many talented creatives, firmly operating under the idea that a rising tide lifts all boats.
— Jeremy Pinckert, principal at Explore Media
