You taste pennies- blood? As your vision goes blurry, the last thing you remember is her smiling down at you. Pointing at her belt.
Brian Mejia- Head Sound Designer - Artex Productions - Best Video Production Company in Miami, FL

Brian Mejia

Head Sound Designer

Brian Mejia is a being of pure sound that we at Artex Productions accidentally created in top-secret science experiment gone horribly wrong. Rather than unleash him on the world, we have harnessed his powers via a high-tech containment unit so that all he does is create impact-laden sound design that gives our clients' videos the cinematic OOMPH they need to land at maximum impact. The being known as Brian has lent his ear to countless advertising pieces, narrative film work, and art projects, but unfortunately, you can't meet with him face-to-face as his mere presence will cause you to go mad.

We have been very impressed with the creativity and polish of the work Artex has produced for us. Regardless of the type of project or timeline, they always find a way to deliver on what we need. We value their talent, flexibility, and enthusiasm to collaborate with us. The Artex team has taken time to fully understand our business and our brand, and as a result, create impactful and compelling videos that help us effectively communicate our brand message. Our partnership with Artex has been a great asset to our marketing team.

The Artex guys are hands down the most impressive production company I’ve had the pleasure of working with. With a tight turnaround in production and post, they didn’t miss a beat. The process was flawless and the product was exceptional. I cant stress how great the Artex team is!

Jeanine FasanoAccount Director

We’ve recently worked with Artex Productions as our Miami production support for Coca-Cola Mix’on. Although the very short notice and complexity of the shoot, they worked very quickly and professionally. The production went very smoothly and these guys were a pleasure to work with!

I was so impressed with the work, energy, staff and professionalism of Artex Productions for the video project we worked on. Once the shoot was wrapped, I arranged a call with our main agency to have them set up as a permanent vendor. Highly recommend The team at Artex for any production scale.
