We are storytellers creating video content to a diverse client base. Servicing both businesses and individuals we produce video for the web, for events, create video tributes and biography pieces as well as offer post production services for television and documentaries. We believe very strongly that every business and individual whether known to the public or just their own family offers a distinct gift to the world. Our work is built on capturing what sets you apart to imbue the production with a style that reflects your unique message rather than adhering to a generic one size fits all feel. We bring your vision from your mind's eye to the eyes of the world.
From web advertising, film festival, business or product promotions to sizzle reels or razzle dazzle video packages, we help you get your message out there.
Video is often part and parcel of an event evening. We have assembled video packages for events of all sizes. From cutting the red carpet to introducing a featured speaker or helping inspire attendees to contribute to a cause, the added dynamic to an evening's program is upped a notch when short stories are told on large screens.
Whether it's paying tribute to a business leader, charitable donor, celebrating a life milestone or quietly remembering a life well lived, we tell your story uniquely in a way which rises to the occasion.
For about a decade Slicing Light Productions has been creating the nomination packages for the Environmental Media Awards. Specific scenes are cut down from minutes to seconds without sacrificing their flow or integrity and assembled together into the nominee introductions we've come to expect at award shows. In this case the adage that "the best edits are the ones you don't see" rings especially true.
From back story video packages at Dr. Phil to shows like The Dog Whisperer, HowStuffWorks and the E! True Hollywood Story we have a decade and a half experience in post production edit bays working in tight turn around environments distilling excess footage into broadcast material.
Specializing in short format storytelling Making Of's give the viewer an opportunity to enjoy a bit more of the movie after the movie is over.
More often than not the story a documentary filmmaker has set out to capture has evolved into something completely unexpected when cameras finish shooting. It is in documentary post production editing where a lion's share of the story's shape takes place. Slicing Light productions is proud to have helped these fine filmmakers take their projects over the finish line to screen in festivals and win awards.
Steve Guttenberg, Zoe Deschanel, Morena Baccarin, Julian Sands, Rebecca Pidgeon, Bernard Hill, John Noble, Kate Flannery, and others have come to us along the way in their careers to help them represent their work.
Drawing from a rich background in the creative arts before the year 2000, Jonathan Brock proceeded down a 10 year path editing IMAX trailers and DVD bonus features subsequently landing in post production edit bays for the Discovery and Travel Channels, National Geographic, E!, CBS Productions, Brave New Films among others.
By 2010 his credit list also included award winning documentaries, producing video packages for award shows, large event tributes for non-profits as well as for promotional and website lifestyle platforms.
Through the many years, countless projects and wide spectrum of stylistic demands, Jonathan has developed a deep sense how to take any message and custom tailor it to the client and their target audience. From non-profits, social media or business messaging to productions for more personal storytelling he is proud to have founded a company who has a track record of delivering industry standard professionalism with narratives as unique as the individual or business being presented.
Amid the dramatically changing landscape of media distribution Slicing Light Productions continues exploring new territory to broaden the application of visual storytelling. Passion for aesthetic and narrative development remains vibrant and like most good stories is fueled by a fiery curiosity about what's going happen next.

"Jonathan is an extremely talented and creative editor. He is very resourceful who understands the importance of good structure; tension building and character development while at the same time not deserting the individual qualities of the particular film. I would recommend him for any documentary director seeking to find the story within their material. The film he edited proceeded to win several awards and he is the reason for it. He is professional, great to collaborate with and very trustworthy. I would definitely hire him again, and he is a pleasure to work with.”
Gabriela Bohm - Documentary Filmmaker - The Longing, Raquel- a marked woman
"Jon is a consummate professional: hard-working, dedicated, and detail oriented. He excels in new and creative ways to tell a story and express visual ideas. Under a very tight deadline, Jon created a PSA for me that had to be ready for a showing at the U.N. Jon worked for days, practically non-stop, finishing the project at 5 in the morning and meeting me at the airport in time for my flight to NY. Throughout this high-pressure ordeal, Jon not only kept his cool but continually came up with interesting and creative ideas. No matter how tired he was, the work came first. The PSA was so well received that four years later, it’s still being shown throughout the world. In fact, it was shown on every American Airlines flight for a period of months! I’ve had equally positive experiences with Jon on various TV shows and commercials. Jon is an all around solid team member for any production.”
