Welcome to tabletop 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 producing videos, in as safe a manner as possible.

Over the summer 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.



Tabletop Productions is run by Jim Krause, who has been creating innovative video projects for more than 30 years. In addition to producing videos and photography, Jim Krause has been teaching at Indiana University since 1999, now a member of the Media School. He is a composer, musician, sailor, and outdoorsman. He has led seminars and workshops, and teaches advanced production classes including TV Studio Production, Digital Video Cinematography, Program Graphics and Animation, and Video Field and Post-Production. Jim holds degrees in Telecommunications, Audio Technology and Education/Instructional Systems Technology.






This is not a blog

Do not expect anything

I’m building this site out of WordPress. It’s a work in progress and a bit of an experiment, but I’m looking forward to using it to share ideas, information, and imagery.  I wear different hats: teacher, photographer, composer, videographer, sailor… My hope is to merge them here with informative, artful, and useful content.


Interested or have a question? Drop me a line or send me an email.
