how we excel
With our unique, cost-effective workflow, John Marshall Media can
turn on a dime. We tailor solutions for specific projects, devising new
software and processes in-house to maintain the highest quality while
keeping budgets down.
We work on a streamlined “movie-style” scheduling system, maximizing the time that actors spend in studio.
Throughout any given project, we stick to extensive internal
quality-assurance procedures, giving every project a second set of fresh
ears before delivery. Clients repeatedly say that our work is the
cleanest they’ve ever received.
Competitive pricing is another John Marshall Media hallmark. Our
staff expertise and relentless quality-assurance procedures ensure that
projects come in on budget.
New clients are sometimes surprised by the reasonable cost. In our case, the workflow efficiency
that comes with expertise also keeps final rates down. As one of our
loyal customers put it, “they use Broadway actors and beat my Midwest
studios on price.”
We’re the best in the business for data redundancy; every project
gets museum-quality archiving. Within twenty-four hours after a given
session, the data exists on seven different drives and in two physical
locations. Even if a server goes down or a blackout hits in the middle
of the night, you won’t lose a second of your session.
We have a dozen full-time employees, plus a roster of regular hired
guns, making us the industry’s largest independent audio post-production
house. Our level of expertise, along with our size, makes us unique in
the business. With years of training and a deep institutional memory,
our staff produces flawless work quickly and on budget.
Our ears stay open beyond the recording studio. We listen carefully
to our clients but also to the concerns and ideas of other education
professionals. Our entire staff is plugged into a digital “listening
post” for social media, following conversations on ESL, FLT, talking
eBooks and more. This gives us an unparalleled understanding of the
