What we do & Who we are

The subtle complexities of a creative image-driven project - be it still or motion, a campaign or an event - require experience, nuance, strong contacts, great energy, diplomacy, flexibility and humor. Ellen Herbert and her company NEAT Production offer a full suite of art production services and tools.

With an extensive background in art-production; photographic production; myriad aspects of the stock photography industry; working with clients across disciplines from ad agencies, corporate and editorial; Ellen is ready to create, manage and support your project.

Services include:

All aspects of Production management, scheduling
Crew. From top to bottom, full crew, negotiations and payment
Billing. Post-production, wrap
Research, clearance and acquisition of photography, motion etc.

Ellen is equally adept at 3:00AM call times; beach sunset wrap parties; sourcing exotic animals and talent; remote locations; and serving up exquisite catering for the most discerning of clients and crews; and all delivered on schedule and in budget.

Above all, the work reflects her deep sense of commitment to the process: watching the sunrise in Palm Springs; hiking Sandstone Peak; creating a picnic in the vineyards of Tuscany; capturing time-lapse of the light moving across San Marco Square, Venice.

NEAT works with top image-makers, and collaborates with like-minded professionals, all of these aspects focused on one goal: to make the perfect picture.

Los Angeles based, NEAT is also positioned to work internationally. We love what we do and hope to be able to join your next project.
