FLETCHER CREATES is a full service production company with offices in Los Angeles and Chicago.
Estimating & Wrap || Thanks to our experience creating estimates on both the agency and production sides, we will ensure your project isn’t a budget-buster. You can rest assured, too, knowing that the production invoice will be meticulously in order and crew will be paid in a timely manner.
Crew || Photographers. Wardrobe Stylist. Prop Stylist. Food Stylist. Hair/Makeup Stylist. Gnat Stylist. Digital Techs. Set Builders. Animal Trainers, Kid Keepers. Client Wranglers. We know where they all live. We can find them.
Scheduling || Call us your timekeeper. Whether your project is a 50-page catalog, an editorial piece, e-commerce or a single shot for an ad, we keep it on task, on time and on budget – managing it every step of the way until your creative vision is realized.
Casting & Usage || Need a blue-collar male over 50 with a goatee? A pigtailed toddler? A tap-dancing drama queen? A trained chimp? We can cast anything you can dream up and negotiate the best rates.
Location Scouting & Permits || We found the needle in the haystack. And we can find the perfect location, large or small for your project. You want it shot on PCH? Perfect! Shutting Down Streets is our middle name.
Equipment & Studio Rental || From photo studios to sound stages – or even the occasional airplane hanger, we can find the right rental for your project. If it’s camera equipment, lighting and grip equipment or whatever else your project calls for, we’ll get it.
Catering || We only eat hot tamales on Tuesday. So we get it – all those dietary needs. Need a vegan steak? No problem. A no-cal edamame sandwich? Done. We can make sure the troops are fed.
Travel Coordination || We know quantum physics, we broke the time-space continuum in preschool. So booking travel arrangements –nationally, internationally, intergalactically – is a cinch.
FLETCHER CREATES was started by Sandi Allison.
Sandi grew up with a creative director as her father and a photo stylist as her mother, so she comes by production honestly. During her 15+ years as a producer she has had the opportunity to work for some of the best clients and agencies around. She is easy to work with, has a great sense of humor, and is known for her resourcefulness and ability to solve problems. She'd like to say she does yoga to manage the stress, but that would just be wrong. The truth is, she has a very healthy addiction to chocolate, and always comes armed with it, so you won’t see her sweat it...ever! She's a bit crazy when it comes to dogs – she's been known to stop traffic on a freeway to rescue one from being hit and in fact Fletcher Creates itself is named after her first dog, Fletcher. She also has a mild (major) obsession with office supplies – but no worries, she won’t be needing yours, she has her own stockpile. She is happiest near the beach and wears flip-flops on a regular basis, but like everyone in advertising, she'll do whatever it takes for the project – even if that means wearing close-toed shoes….

The son of puppeteer and theater professors, his childhood in California's central coast was shaped by the visual and performing arts.
He earned his B.F.A. (Summa Cum Laude) in visual arts with an emphasis on sculpture and videography from UC San Diego. After graduating the directing program at the American Film Institute, his short film Dust successful made the rounds on the festival circuit and - among many honors - won a Student Emmy Award as well as best dramatic short at the New York Independent Film, Festival. Since then, he has completed just shy of twenty screenplays, and has been fortunate enough to collaborate with extraordinary directors, producers, actors and artists of all types.
He has also been a freelance advertising producer for sixteen years, and has managed commercial shoots large and small, all over this country and in nine others as well. He has written and produced three documentaries: two about the art of puppetry, and the other about underground comics. He is a professor of creative writing at US Riverside and a happy family man adjusting to suburban life in the San Fernando Valley. He's a traveller and an avid adventurer, a curious and appreciative eater, and a lover and supporter of the arts.
