COMPANY HISTORY

In 2000, Edit House Productions, LLC began as the first media production facility in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Starting as a home-based business, the name was partly a play on words after Owner Ed Smith, “Ed at House,” and partly based on industry lingo for a post-production facility known as an editing house. Before long, more equipment, more people, and more space where needed.

As one of the prominent video production companies in New Mexico, we’ve been among the top video production and film companies in the Albuquerque region since 2003. Owners Ed and Kim Smith soon expanded Edit House Productions into a full-service advertising agency, eventually branching off the advertising agency into its division called Ad House Advertising.

Ad House Advertising was the first New Mexico company to reach the status of a Google Partner, Google’s recognition of digital agencies that meet their performance and educational standards.

Edit House is always working to stay ahead of the curve of industry standards. In 2007, we set the HD standard in New Mexico, as the state’s first video production company to produce high-definition video. We worked with local television stations to develop the compression standards still in use today.

Today, Edit House Productions produces web videos for online marketing and websites, television and radio commercials, and long-format videos and documentaries. Throughout the years, Edit House Productions has produced dozens of award-winning videos, documentaries, and television commercials.

At Edit House Productions, LLC, we work to be a solution for clients’ video production. From large, six-figure production budgets to those in the $1,000 range, we believe in crafting results-focused productions for each client. We work to make the process fun, easy, and uncomplicated—and to complete it on time and on budget. Our team has over 100 years of combined experience in local, regional, national, and international level productions.

We bring depth in advertising and marketing experience, not just the technical camerawork and editing skills. That gives us the perspective to ask questions that may save you some money or give you a deeper perspective about your production need. We believe in high-quality cameras and currently, shoot on 4K cameras with extraordinary depth of field for beautiful footage!

We have dozens of creative awards under our belts for post-production, art direction, cinematography, writing, directing, and producing. Ed Smith, the president, has been collecting them since 1985. Matt Smith, videographer/editor, won his first national awards in 2012 for editing and now is up to 11 statues. Among the larger, national and international awards are Addys, Tellys, and Aurora Awards. The statues and plaques are nice, but we love our clients’ results!

Edit House Productions and our full-service advertising agency, Ad House Advertising, the first New Mexico company to reach the status of a Google Partner, produce integrated campaigns for dozens of local and regional companies. Call us for information about videos for online marketing and websites, television and radio commercials, and long-format videos and documentaries.
