Karl Productions ... 

We’re a different kind of video production company. We’re small and focused. Talented and trustworthy. We strive to make the creation of a video a pleasure and NOT a "production."

We value the compelling story.  And our collaborative associations. Here's our latest -- a :30-second TV Spot for the Illinois Secretary of State's Organ Donor Program.  

This spot, featuring the stories of three recipients, asks the question, "What If?" -- and shows in poignant ways how life's best moments are made possible by organ and tissue donations.  This PSA will receive significant play in movie theaters, and on radio, and TV stations across Illinois during April of 2017, National Donate Life Month.


For more than 24 years, Karl Productions has worked to create videos that grow businesses, large and small

We create deeply personal videos that extol the great works of grassroots organizations, non-profits and governmental agencies.

We produce stimulating television episodes that illustrate the importance of programs and initiatives that benefit every Chicagoan on a daily basis.

We specialize in Web Videos, Documentaries, Training Videos, and Public Service Announcements.   We encourage you to “kick the tires” here and review a wide variety of work samples.

Karl Productions is a family operation.  Founded by legendary investigative reporter Peter Karl, award-winning producer David Beedy, and his tech-extraordinaire brother, Jamie Beedy.

Today, with Peter now retired, Producer/Project Manager David possesses the right brain.  Editor/Tech Manager Jamie, the left.  And you get the benefit of both, along with our hand-picked team of Chicago’s top video production talent. 

That’s our story.  What’s yours?  We’ll help you figure that out, too.

Karl Productions has been the best investment we have made in a long time.
— Stacey Coleman, Executive Director, National Canine Research Council


Thinking of using video as a tool to train, educate, motivate and/or inform?  We'd welcome the opportunity to explore your story.  Call me directly to start the conversation.  

I look forward to providing you insights and strategies, and a transparent budget that will result in an effective video that produces results.
