We are Chris & Jackie. That's a picture of us on our honeymoon. There's a really great story about how we met and how we fell in love and how we work together 24/7 without hating each other by the end of the day. But you would need to work with us and get to know us before we tell you about it.
Plus, a bit of mystery in every relationship keeps things exciting, don'cha think?
From the famous 516 exchange of Long Island, Jackie attended SUNY Oneonta in upstate New York and graduated with a BA in Theatre.
Immediately upon graduating, she worked as Production Stage Manager for dozens of regional productions including the National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof.
It was during an 8-year stint as a Production Stage Manager at a dinner theatre that she met her husband who soon became the Artistic Director. While trying to find ways to set their theatre apart from the rest, she thought it would be unique to create an online video presence for the theatre as a means of expanding the content of a customer's experience beyond what saw on stage. Together they began shooting and editing small video productions.
Soon they were getting requests to edit for other production companies and their production base has continued to grow.
Her love of photography has led to her love of videography and has thus become a master of the product shot.
Chris grew up in a show business family. His father was Al Alberts, lead singer of The Four Aces who had 5 Gold Records in the mid-1950s. Al went on to create Al Alberts Showcase, a show which celebrated and "showcased" local talent from the tri-state area. The show, produced by his mom, went on to be one of the longest running local TV shows in history spanning 32 years in Philadelphia.
Though he grew up in the TV studio, Chris found his passion in live theatre. With a BA in Theatre with Emphasis on Design from West Chester University, Chris has been actively working professionally in theatre as a lighting designer, scenic designer and director for over 35 years and over 700 productions, concerts and events.
In 1987, he opened The Sound Spa Recording Studios, a state-of-the-art recording facility that was a home to many top Philly producers and hosted acts such as Boyz-II-Men, Vanessa Williams, Grover Washington, Jr., Pieces of a Dream, Tisha Campbell and more.
During his time at Sound Spa he moved into video production where he honed his craft at directing, editing and scoring dozens of corporate videos. He soon created Standing Room, Inc which developed into a full-service media production company that he runs with his wife, Jackie.
