SPECIALTY: Commercial Tabletop Production

MK Films is a world-class tabletop commercial production house providing clients with endless opportunities to translate their visions into reality. Since 2004, directors Darren Weninger and Mark Klein have produced distinctive work by approaching every storyboard with creative innovation and artful cinematography. The skilled directors and supporting production team seamlessly deliver results for agencies and brands across broadcast and digital platforms.

The MK Films studios are housed within a 50,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility located on Chicago’s west side. The building contains two complete production stages, industrial kitchens, client areas, workshop, extensive prop room and open flex space for set buildings on larger scales. All of this to achieve one goal: providing clients with exceptional results.

When not making magic happen for their clients, you may find them brewing beer, duking it out at the MK ping pong table or droning on and on about their drones.
