  • About Us

    HD Video Production, Custom Animation & Professional Voice Over Services - Clients Worldwide

    About Sync Productions

    Sync Productions produces custom 2D and 3D animations, high-definition video and professional voice projects for clients worldwide. Sync was founded by partners, Scott Lissard (Director of Photography, Editor and Animator), and Crystal Place (Director, Producer and Professional Voice Artist). After realizing their strengths and backgrounds complimented each other so wonderfully, the two decided to combine their powers for good and form a company. Since then, they and their growing team have worked with clients all over the world, and can honestly say getting up to go to work is something they look forward to every day. And if you end up speaking with their artists or crew, you will find this mentality trickles all the way down. People are happy at Sync Productions. And do great work too.

    Whether you’re looking to produce a commercial that cleverly engages current and potential customers, a scientific animation that has a level of accuracy and perfectionism required for your field, a video that strengthens your most important business relationships, an E-learning project that makes a splash with beautiful and effective results, a trade show video that has the artistry and quality to share it around the globe, or a documentary piece that speaks with the world in a meaningful and visually compelling way – you’re in the right place. We are passport ready, perfectionists at heart and thoroughly, (some might say to the extreme), organized. We also believe in the power of visual storytelling and education to literally – change the world. We take our part in that process seriously, and are passionate and empowered when we have the opportunity to lend our skills to such projects.

    We also believe Sync’s job is to do excellent work that our clients are thrilled to share, but Sync’s mission is to thoroughly delight our clients, and to make their lives easier in the process too. (You even get chocolate when the job is complete. Where else does that happen?) Give us a call to get started on your project!

     

    Scott Lissard – Partner

    Director of Photography | Editor | Animator

    Scott Lissard, DP, Animator, Editor

    Before Sync, Scott shot and created imagery for national commercials and feature films, as well as corporate and technical videos. He has directed live multi-camera events, and produced and directed his own television show. He has two decades of experience in almost every aspect of audio and video production, and has also enjoyed the experience of working as an animator and compositor on well-known major motion pictures, such as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” (Parts 1 & 2), “Men in Black 3,” “Beautiful Creatures,” “Gangster Squad,” “The Chronicles of Narnia” and others (IMDB link here), as well as several features for the SyFy Channel. He has also had thoroughly memorable experiences shooting video projects with musical artists, such as Quincy Jones, Joe Walsh, Herby Hancock and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    When he isn’t out shooting or indoors creating something spectacular, Scott likes to spend time with his son Gordon, to play and write music, and to head out exploring in the VW camper bus he’s recently restored. Though Scott is often seen as a Jack-of-all-Trades, whatever he’s working on has a level of creativity that will knock your socks off. His output is always clever and filled with imagination and originality. Share your concept with him and he’ll be thrilled to make it come alive.

     

    Crystal Place – Partner

    Executive Producer | Director | Professional Voice Artist

    Crystal A. Place, Executive Producer

    Before Sync, Crystal worked in the Boston advertising world with ad giants Arnold Worldwide and Digitas, making TV and radio spots and On-Demand Videos for their larger national accounts, including Pergo and General Motors. She enjoyed her years on the “agency side” but knew the “production-side” was calling her name. She then accepted a position as Producer/Director for a boutique production company in between New York City and Boston, and worked on everything from commercials and documentaries to corporate video and non-profit capital campaigns. Following her years there, she dove into the full-time freelance world, where she’s worked on nearly every other type of project, from short films and feature films to television shows and international travel shows. Some of her most interesting clients have included BBC Worldwide, The SyFy Channel, The Canadian Food Network, BNN (out of Holland), The Learning Channel and the History Channel. She was a freelancing machine solo, but all agreed her powers were best used (and most efficacious) as part of a great team. That’s when we snatched her up!

    When she isn’t on-set or running around the studio shoeless, you might find her directing her own documentaries, traveling abroad, cooking a new tofu-chocolate dessert, rock-climbing or swing-dancing (lindy-hoppin’ to be precise). Though Crystal is a seasoned production professional, she is also a lover of life and play, and brings that delightful attitude with her to work everyday (making everything just a little more fun). That’s why we love her, and we think you will too. Give her a call to discuss your upcoming project. She’ll be just delighted to make it happen for you.

     

    Artists & Production Crew

    Digital Artists | Production Crew | Art Directors | Copywriters | Voice Talent | Music Composers

    Sync CrewSync Productions is proud to work with some of the best talent in the industry. Some of us came from advertising backgrounds, some from film, television, documentary and still other genres of visual storytelling. We like to hire people who are perfectionists at heart AND love what they do, because that’s how we roll too.

    Besides fabulously talented, we also look for interesting people, people who are smart, funny, interested in the world and even a bit adventurous. We believe cultivating healthy levels of curiosity, play and autonomy, in our daily work-lives, simply makes for stronger creative, happier teams and more powerful work. We love to spark the kind of imagination, learning and discovery that only a little magic can do.

    Here at Sync, our teams work together to tell stories, educate, motivate and inspire. Using the power of the visual image, our work brings organizations… communities… ideas… and people – together. We love this.

    Engaging Customers and Fostering Long-Term Relationships

    We’re here to help you and your clients, not just to communicate to your customers, but to meaningfully engage with them to foster long-term relationships, to grow your business and to keep it flourishing. We understand that in the 21st century, communicating effectively, with those that keep your business growing and prosperous, is one of the most important endeavors in which you can invest your energy. And communication is key. Video has become the delivery method of choice for so many companies, because of its ability to share a complete vision, tell a complete story and engage in all the ways you hope to with your customers – online, on television, in-store and through social networking channels across the web. We understand it’s no longer about that one-way message. It’s about creating a lively dialogue between you and your customers – and keeping that dialogue going.

    Business-to-Workforce Creating a Workforce Whose Sum is Greater Than Its Parts

    We’re here to help you to effectively inform and engage your workforce, while cultivating greater innovation, teamwork, deeper wells of creativity and healthy productivity that’s sustainable. We understand that as you invest in your workforce, its growth and success rises respectively (and so does your business). Sometimes communicating with employees to inform, train, grow and inspire them in meaningful ways takes more than a few well-worded PDFs. Combining just the right visuals and pertinent information – in a way that’s informative, entertaining and motivating – is quite often just the right tool for the task. And like anything else – communication is key. Their safety, your investment, their growth and your business depends on it. Video has become the delivery method of choice for so many companies, because of its ability to train while using visual materials to support that training, to inform in a way that will stay with your employees as they continue their employment with you, and to engage them in ways that inspire their autonomy, diligence, success and innovation.

  • Sync Your Vision

    Seasoned Storytelling

    We all have a story to tell…

    We’re here to help you, not just to tell your story, but to help you find your most compelling voice to share it with the world – and to tell it in a way that makes a meaningful mark wherever it aims. We understand that some stories are just too good, or too important, not to be told. Visual storytelling is an art, and our team’s combined seasoned experience and passion for the process is literally at your beck and call. The art of storytelling in the 21st century depends on compelling visuals, as much as the letter-writer depends on language. We know this fact well, and it’s why we love what we do. Sometimes to tell a story in the most compelling way requires in-the-moment intimate storytelling. Sometimes it’s high-quality visual effects, true-to-life or magically creative animation or original music composition that fills the piece with the meaning and depth it deserves. And sometimes it’s a sweet combination of all of the above. We’ve got all the tools in our toolbox ready to break out as needed, and we look forward to the opportunity to share them with you and your team.

    But at Sync, we don’t stop there. Sometimes your message can be made more effective with scriptwriting assistance, professional voice services and a strong creative partnership – all to bring your project to that next level. If you have a funded documentary project and need a dependable partner for animation, video or to be there with you at every turn, please think of us like your own personal storytelling Swiss Army Knife. We’ll be at your side assisting wherever you need us most, and cheering you on, on the sidelines too.

    Let us help you create everything you were hoping for when your project grew and flourished in your imagination. Drop us a line to schedule a meeting and discuss how we may help to fulfill your needs. We’d be delighted to be your partner.
