Sound and Vision Media was started by Howard Cook back in 1972 focusing on Boston video services. It was also a music production recording studio. The Boston video and audio studios were known for producing some Boston video and audio recordings of some of best known bands such as Pastiche, O-Positive, The Classic Ruins, Rick Russel, and hundreds of other local talents. Sound and Vision Media of Boston was also instrumental in getting record contracts for bands including Tracy Chapman and Phish. Phish’s Junta album, recorded in their Boston recording studios, were released by Electra Records and went platinum. David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix masters were also categorized and mixed at our studios for record companies like Rykodisc.
After the MIDI revolution, the studio started concentrating on affordable corporate video production and music video production. Howard’s background as a medical photographer and videographer and his association with Harvard Medical School helped get the initial work, and studio manager Mark Helms starting building the sales end of the company. Mark Helms soon became a full partner and the name of the business was shortened to ESS Productions to better fit the new corporate image.
In 2005, the company purchased a new building in Revere and built a suite of spacious studios. They re-branded the company as Sound & Vision Media to more appropriately represent the company’s current scope of work which currently consists of audio and video production, web design, and web marketing services. Sound & Vision Media also produces original television programming through its sister company New Video Images.
