Welcome to Production Distillery.
Hi, my name is Bret Farmer. I am Founder and Chief Distilling Officer (CDO) of this collaborative organization that is built on the premise that networking and cooperation make solutions and productions the best they can be.
BEHIND SCENES: I’ve been in the production industry for nearly 20 years and have not only collected frequent flyer miles, but also years worth of experience in multiple areas of expertise–audio, video, lighting, podcasting, etc.–just to name a few. I’ve also collected business connections and relationships that I have built up over the years into an elaborate, interconnecting network. With this network I am able to research equipment and services, investigate solutions, and connect the right people to the right job or service with just a phone call or two. I’ve probably enjoyed this part of my work the most as it is fulfilling to connect people and solve problems.
My background is in video and audio engineering. For many years my focus has been audio for live productions. In the last few years I have gotten back into video and I have also had the opportunity to do audio post production for various companies who are featured via links on this site.
I want this site to be a resource for you as well. I will be posting tutorial videos, offering ideas in which you will be able to comment on, sharing reviews of equipment and retailers/wholesalers, and making connections for those who are seeking industry services. A few of these elements are still under construction, but check back often and you’ll see more and more available for your production needs.
Another aspect of this endeavor is to inspire my kids in their own creativity. They have shown interest and talent in the production industry (chips off the old block), beginning with their own elaborate stop-motion videos using their hard earned Lego collection.
