It’s a bit like herding cats while someone sets your hair on fire.

Never fear, because help is only a phone call away.


"Claudio is a filmmaker disguised as a producer."

A little bit about who Claudio Kuhn is and what he brings to the table.

A film producer is never asked to accomplish the impossible because nothing is impossible to a good producer, it’s just a question of how much time and money you’re willing to spend to achieve your vision. With the right resources, you can fly to the moon, drive around in a go-cart, and hit golf balls.


At its most basic level, producing is managing a complex process of moving parts, making sure everyone is doing their jobs efficiently and effectively, and remaining calm. It’s a bit like herding cats with a wet noodle, while someone sets your hair on fire and yells at you to focus.


But occasionally, when performed with passion, precision, and a little flair, producing rises to the level of high art. Claudio Kuhn was forged in the mold of old-school producers for whom the word impossible is not an obstacle, but a call to arms. He is part problem solver, part psychotherapist, with a twinkle in his eye and a spring in his step.


There are highly-accomplished producers who endeavor to get through the day without getting bogged down in endless distraction, avoiding pitfalls, sidestepping landmines, navigating personalities, and keeping everyone motivated. That is an accomplishment in and of itself, but it is mere management, not creative filmmaking.


Claudio is a filmmaker disguised as a producer. He isn’t going to write it, cast it, direct it or shoot it, but what he is going to do is help you make sure every aspect of production serves the film. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a commercial, a television series, or a feature film, his goals are the same. Make it better than it began.


It’s a testament to his skill and experience, that clients as demanding as the NFL, NASCAR, Campbell’s, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson and the Washington Post seek him out to ensure the success of their projects, and that agencies like Grey, McCann, TBWA, BBDO, and Ogilvy turn to him to help them realize their unique visions. There are plenty of experienced producers who know how to bring a project in on time and on budget, but really only a handful that strive to do so while elevating the production to achieve that extra bit of magic. Because it’s that extra bit you will always remember. Without a little magic, filmmaking is nothing more than widget production.
