Welcome to tabletop productions aka KrauseVideo, a digital production and imaging studio run by Jim Krause. The pandemic has thrown us all into new territory, but we’re still taking pictures and producing videos, in as safe a manner as possible.

We’re currently working on an hour-long documentary on the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theatre (aka the Indiana Theatre) for our local PBS affiliate, WTIU. The show will premiere in November 2022.

Over the summer we produced a live multi-camera concert for Carrie Newcomer shot on location at Airtime Studios. Here’s My Dog, a song clip from the concert.

Last December we produced a short promo for The Stone Age Institute.

In summer 2021, we helped Monika Herzig capture a live performance recorded at Airtime Studios. The live session was sent to fans in Germany, in lieu of a postponed concert.

We also provided sculptor, Dale Enochs with a one-shot artist talk about his new, larger than life piece called, Stride. It was installed at the Northwest YMCA in Bloomington, Indiana.

The Art of Water

I do volunteer work for Friends of Lake Monroe. They are a local not-for-profit group working to keep Lake Monroe fishable, swimmable and drinkable for years to come. Here’s a poster I created for their November exhibit, the Art of Water.
