CREATION of JOSUBU PRODUCTIONS
After twenty years of Editing, Motion Graphic Design, Producing, and Directing in New York City, Jonathan Budine took his “side” business full-time. JOSUBU Productions officially opened for business as a full-service creative production company in 2011.
Naming it JOSUBU PRODUCTIONS, (JOSUBU [joe-soo-boo] Productions (a combination of Jonathan and his wife, Susie’s name)). Because of the speed and capacity of email in the beginning, Jon originally created the name for a website to show his family their firstborn. He did not foresee that 12 years later it would become the name of his production company.
Creative Director Jonathan and JOSUBU Productions have brought their full-service expert artistry to broadcast commercials, promotional design, high-end presentations, music video, multi-camera productions, and many other creative projects for broadcast, cable, and the internet as well as national sales meetings and marketing for multiple corporate and pharmaceutical companies or agencies.
