You may not know their name, but you’ve most likely seen their work. Ahptic Productions, located in Lansing’s 1st ward, is a full service production and post production company specializing in film and video. Since 1998, co-founders Matt Martyn, Dominic Cochran, and Jon Berlinski have been servicing the Lansing Area through their work with local businesses and advertising agencies.
While the majority of their work is based in Lansing, the production company has brought in business from cities across the country including Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Milwaukee. Some of their most notable projects include music videos for Miley Cyrus, Nelly Furtado and promotional videos for Pure Michigan and the Capital City Film Festival.
They created the business to pursue their passion for filmmaking and to fulfill the need they saw for production in Lansing. “No one else in Lansing was utilizing film to the degree we planned to,” said co-founder Matt Martyn. Martyn noted that the business has been growing by leaps and bounds, especially in the past five years. Ahptic currently employs five full time employees alongside the three founders.
When speaking about the work they do locally, Martyn said, “Local agencies come to us with a concept and we execute it visually. Our goal is to foster the artistic community of Lansing and continue to develop the industry both in Lansing and state wide.”
