We're Passionate About One Thing...Your Success!

 Our Mission is to produce national-quality advertising productions for local and regional advertisers at a price they can afford.

Our Story

In the 70's we would sing the community bank name in a song (a jingle) for them to use in their ads on the local radio station.

In 1980, we began producing complete branding campaigns. Having relocated to LA to record in the top studios using world class musicians and singers, we also had access to national quality announcers, voice actors and the sound effects we needed to produce amazing radio spots. To complete the packages we added corresponding newspaper ads using the scripts as copy, as well as collateral materials. (direct mail, billboards, point of sale counter, desk displays, etc.)

When our clients began moving their budgets to social media, and away from advertising locally, we moved into video production. Where previously producing video was cost prohibitive, we discovered that our jingles, video production, and signature music resulted in an affordable high-quality production. Now we have a small production crew for local shoots.

MTI is unique. Usually an advertising company will start working on a local level and then, as they grow and expand, they will aspire to do higher quality work. Eventually they may even work with Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola, Burger King, Miller-Beer, etc... Our founder, Gary Michaels, had the idea to take the same level of writers, musicians, singers and bring Madison Avenue quality to the local community banks, credit unions and rural hospitals. We provide that level of excellence to local businesses at a price they can afford. Our licensing fees are normally lower than local agencies but we use the same singers, musicians, and video digital editors who work with the National Advertisers.
