We Are Legend Productions

We are an event and video production company based in New York, while serving the globe. We pride ourselves on delivering big agency results with personalized service, visionary creative, and flawless execution.

Legend Productions is uniquely positioned to bring together the key disciplines for your next project- content development, design and production, and event staging & management.

For 28 years, our credo has been "when it comes to event production you’ve got one shot to get it right, there are no second chances.”

Content Development

No matter what type of event you are putting on or video you are planning to present – there is a message. We will help you craft that message and bring that content to life.

Design & Production

Once the message is clear, we’ll work with you on the design and production elements to help deliver it.  Whether it’s a digital presentation, decor, a performance, or an activation we’ll tailor our recommendations to your audience and budget.

Event Management & Staging

When its time to take the show on the road, you’ll have the most experienced event team in the business right there by your side.  From our event management to our stage management, from our techs to our coordinators, ‘flawless and friendly’ is our team mantra.

Our Services

It takes a wide range of skills and talents to pull off a corporate event that not only goes smoothly, but also leaves a lasting impact on your audience. For 28 years, Legend Productions has delivered memorable experiences in the form of flawlessly executed corporate events and videos. We seek ways to engage audiences, exceed their expectations, and have a transformational effect on them.

Concept & Theme Development

Whether a multi city customer conference or a one-off video to promote your new services, your project deserves the proper start point – a strong concept supported by a good strategy.

Production & Event Design

How does your event look, sound and feel to your audience? Is it engaging? Does it start a conversation?  Our team is comprised of seasoned professionals, mixed in with new perspectives from our youthful staff and freelancers.

Producer & Project Management

The project moves forward through the efforts of every member of our production team. The Producer serves to ensure the vision is realized, and the team is working harmoniously, on schedule, on budget, and with guidance.

Scripting

For narrations. For keynote remarks. For the Master of Ceremonies. Every word counts. Our writers and producers have worked collaboratively for years on technical works, inspirational remarks, and marketing copy for hundreds of projects.

Video Production, Post & Digital Effects

On Location. Studio. 4K or HD. Post Production and Audio Sweetening. Visual Effects. Single camera or multi-camera. Handheld or cranes. Our strength is in our versatility and experience, constantly incorporating the newest tools into our workflow.

Entertainment

If you are thinking about a headline musical act for your trade conference, a cirque style entertainment for your employee meeting, or a marquee comedian for an awards gala, we have worked with some of the best and brightest.

Stage Management

It would be an understatement to say our stage managers are excellent. They are simply the best in the business. When our show callers are not calling one of our programs you will find them calling the Tonys, the Kennedy Center Honors or any number of events around the globe.

Scenic Design

Scenic design is one of those elements that speaks immediately to your audience. Even before the first cue hits the screen, your audience has walked in, and what they see has likely made an impression. We are here to ensure that it is a good one.

Activations

If you are hosting an event we will work with sponsors and partners on thematic continuity, scheduling, logistics and deployment. If you are a sponsor activating at an event we will design an engagement and interface with the hosts to ensure your engagement is effective.

It all started for me in studio 8H at 30 Rock. It was the second ever episode at SNL and I was in the audience, watching live television unfold. The pace, energy and vibe in the studio on that October night in 1975 has stuck with me since. In 1976 during an internship I witnessed the same thing week after week. During my 4 years at the Newhouse School at Syracuse I worked summers at various NYC production houses. When I graduated, a Producer was kind enough to refer me to an opening at Gannett, where my life as a Corporate Producer had begun. Within a year I was a passenger on the corporate jet taking USA Today on a roadshow to launch it to the ad community. During my 7 years there, I had staged and produced content for virtually every division of this media giant. Wanting to diverge from ad sales content at the time, I left and started Legend Productions. To this day, USA Today remains a client. I love running Legend Productions because virtually every project presents the same challenges and adventures I was part of at SNL. When I’m not trekking the globe for our clients, I like to spend time with my wife and three sons. For me, down time is best served up on or near a body of water. I love boating and I’m a sushi enthusiast. That enthusiasm has rubbed off on the team and we make it a point to find quality sushi in every market we work in. Favorite TV series: SNL, of course. Favorite film: Life is Beautiful. Favorite play: Book of Mormon.

Despite wanting to be an architect, as a freshman in college I decided to follow my heart and moved into media studies instead. That eventually led to a master’s in film production… which led to me joining Legend Productions. I’ve been a part of the Legend team for over a decade.

Starting out as a production assistant and video editor, I moved into event production but never left video behind. As it turned out, event production managed to scratch that old architecture itch. There’s a tremendous satisfaction in building a show. One has to account for every detail and element and put it all together into a seamless, working whole.

It’s great to be a part of this team. On that note, sushi is fine (we all need to eat), but when work stops, I’d rather be at a beer bar than a sushi bar. At Legend, we work as a team, but we also bring our own unique sensibilities to whatever we do and we’re stronger for it.

Project Manager

My “production life” started for me in High School, in a small studio in White Plains. As the intern, I was moving ‘old school’ video monitors and studio lights in heels. Although the subject matter was a little dry (continuing education credits for accounting), I knew that I had found my passion. The internship turned into a job, which turned into a freelance career running prompter, gripping, and creating graphics. Aside from corporate gigs I worked on independent films. It was during an indie screening where I realized how gratifying it is to have people applaud and react to projects I worked on. What I love about event and video production today is the pace, the one-on-one client partnerships, the travel, the variety of content, and an audience reacting to our work. But this ‘event life’ has some other perks – traveling to new cities, great food, and like so many on our team, new sushi finds around the globe. Favorite location: New Orleans – Love the music. Favorite sushi place: Zenbu in La Jolla. Lesson Learned (while on a Legend gig) in Taipei: After airline lost my luggage I learned the bare essentials for survival…toothpaste, deodorant, wallet, one change of clothes, phone and charger.

Production Coordinator

A Penn State grad and Pittsburgh transplant, I joined the Legend team in the Fall of 2014. My love of production and planning was truly sparked in college as the President and Tour Manager of my show choir when I was tasked with planning the annual 10 day tour. After graduating from Penn State, I worked in Pittsburgh staffing events and concerts until I took the leap of faith to move to New York and join Legend Productions. I couldn’t be happier that I did. Every day presents new challenges and experiences that I know I couldn’t get anywhere else. I can’t wait to see where Legend takes me next!
Fun Facts about me:
I love broadway and my favorite musical is Newsies.
I danced for 46 straight hours to raise money for pediatric cancer.
I’m often mistaken for the actress Jennifer Carpenter on the subway.
I’ve been a Pittsburgh Penguins fan since birth (see picture above).

testimonials
  • Your video elicited a heartfelt response from a person from whom I’ve never before seen emotion exhibited, telling a group that viewing it gave him goose bumps and a “full heart.” You captured the essence of the Edison Awards—how amazing it is to be a part of the human species with its self-generated inventive possibilities.

    Edison Awards
  • I have worked with Jeff and his team for over ten years and have always been given great creative, professional, reasonably priced service. They have a great understanding of the video production business but also provided hands-on management of the live events where we used the presentations. They are reliable, trustworthy, easy to work with and we continue to use their expert services.

    USA Today
  • Many compliments were thrown my way and I threw them right back indicating that if it were not for the team… I certainly would not be receiving those comments. Great job!

    MasterCard
  • Your ability to manage so many segments of our program allows us to focus on the other details, and essentially helps to create a streamlined and successful program.

    International Insurance Society
  • What a meeting! Every element was in place, including an AV production the likes of which we have never seen before. You and your team were extraordinary and added tremendously to our event at The Wigwam.
