Who We Are

Charlie Chiara - Producer/Cinematographer/Editor

Charlie in India 2012

With over 26 years in the entertainment business, Charlie has produced programming in almost every media format. Charlie was at the forefront of the video explosion of the 1980s when he was a Partner at Selluloid Video, the Culver City based production company where he developed and line-produced a number of award-winning shows. After a run with Clio Award winning visual-effects boutique Image G (Star Trek - The Next Generation), Charlie joined his friend Morris Eisenman to form Dinamo Entertainment, where they produced 3 feature films in 4 years. But the shrinking market for feature films created new opportunities, and Charlie recognized the fantastic potential for video/film distribution and marketing on the web. Over our first 6 years Charlie has developed in a wide range of clients for Clear Stream Media Group.

And our sound tracks are really clear and clean, thanks to Ciaran. When the budget allows for original music Ciaran also creates magical and powerful scores for CSGM.

John Beaty - Technology/Hardward/Software

Like the lawyer you never knew you needed, we have gained so much from having John here at CSMG and we have grown our technology trmendously thanks to him. Before, we had dozons of hard drives all over the place with all our projects scattered about. And we could not share media. Now, all our work stations are all connected to a central server where all our media resides.  We cal all can access any shot from the last 6 years though the server, and edit directy from the server. That also means all the new work is instantly saved on the server, which backs itself up every night. Thanks for this amazing upgrade. Okay, we paid for it but you did it. Our clients are the better for it.

Steve Taylor - Computer Graphics Designer/Cinematographer

As the owner of Digital Spatula, Steve Taylor caught our eye when we needed affordable graphics for our films. As our sophistcation grew, so did our desire to add After Effects graphics to our films and media clips. But we has just become proficient at Motion and really did not have the time or energy to learn a complicated graphics software. Along came Steve to save the day. Not only are his graphics nice and clean, but they are just has an intutive sense of what the project needs. Then it turns out he is a really good cinematographer. Now he is our go-to person for graphics and one of our trusted filming partners.
