ill titleSimple Beginnings

Major Progress Studios was founded in 2008. Its main focus then was headshots. After two years of exclusively focusing on providing actors with great headshots, the company branched out into new mediums. First film & video media production.

With the introduction of DSLR's having the capability to capturing high quality HD video, this opened a new door for MP Studios. A new direction and many new promising oppertunities. Later a music division was introduced to the MP Studios family as a way to fascilite a love of an art form our founder has always had a passion for.

ill titleOur Mission

Major Progress Studios has a simple mission to: Make Progress Happen. It's a simple idea and this idea is what has lead us to so much success. The oppertunities afforded to content creatures is at an amazing place. With the lowered cost of photography/film/music tools, software, hardware and educational material.

The landscape has drastically changed. The ability to birth, produce, release and market an artistic idea is right at many indie artists fingertips. MP Studios is commited to providing, not only, quality work but also educating and innovating industry standards and then next generation of artists and creators. The possibilities are only as narrow as your imagination and we pride ourselves on being creative catalysts. We don't wait for progress to happen, we make progress happen.
