Check Out Ed “Radio” H for 821 Palm Studio’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ed “Radio” H.

821 Palm Studio was founded this past August 2020, By Ed “Radio” H, Lonnie Payne, and Shawn Powers. The three Founders have been Producing content together for over five years, however there is more than 20 years of production experience between the three of them. Most of these years were spent shooting Hip-Hop and K-Pop music videos, reality tv shows, and independent Films. The Founders found themselves out of work during the Covid-19 crisis and noticed a city full of entrepreneurs looking to Advertise their businesses and prosper. They believe with their production background, they can make prosperity a reality for business owners, wherever they may live.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There are always ups and downs working in the entertainment sector, but the most pressing challenge has been Covid-19.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
821 Palm Studio specializes in producing Commercials, Music videos, Campaigns, and films. Some of the accomplishments between us are working as a visual effects artist on a Katy Perry video, Touring with the K-pop group BTS as a camera operator, and traveling to different cities and states filming content. What sets us apart from other production company’s in town is our attention to production planning (storyboarding and scriptwriting) and professionalism (showing up on time and being prepared when things go wrong). We’re a covid compliant crew, we are tested frequently. Also, most of our filming takes place outdoors or is limited to a crew size of less than ten people total (only on camera talent is ever without a mask). We also use really good cameras (we film in 6k) for a 4k viewing standard.

How do you define success?
Success for us is producing a commercial for the Super Bowl, winning a VMA and and Emmy.
