WECOME TO AUGUSTENBORG PRODUCTIONS

Augustenborg Productions is the somewhat obvious, yet unique, business moniker representing a modern approach to television production and filmmaking.

No matter the medium or genre, my first concern is to tell a straightforward message which adheres to the fundamental basics of story telling … yes, a Beginning, Middle and End. Whether it’s a movie trailer, documentary, news story, station promo, commercial or live multi-camera event coverage… there’s an inspirational and compelling story waiting to emerge and be realized - and that’s where I come in.

The challenge of seamlessly fusing sights, sounds and motion is something I’ve always had a deep passion for. And the ability to synthesize unique and imaginative elements into a clean, simple message is not a common talent - so, if you're searching for the right complement of preproduction, production and post production skills to successfully embrace your intended market, or inspire your chosen audience …. I am your answer.

“The Ballad of Don Lewis” is an independently produced documentary about a pioneering multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and electronic engineer who utilized his genius to design and create sounds that have shaped the world’s musical landscape.

In the 1970’s and 1980’s, Don Lewis gained iconic status throughout the San Francisco live music scene while performing with a revolutionary instrument of his own design – LEO (Live Electronic Orchestra)… an innovative cohesion of synthesizers and sound modules which proved to be a decade ahead of its time.
