The Focal Range

The Focal Range The official page of The Focal Range. Here you can find info on our company and updates on what's happening with new and old projects.

The Focal Range traces its routes back to our nations capital, Washington, D.C., where its founding members met while attending college at American University. While studying for a semester at The Film and Television School in Prague, CZ, Jonathan Gaynes, Eli Susser, and Ari Jacobson formed Tram 17 Productions. The trio began creating live music videos for a variety of well know musicians and DJs, but soon moved onto professional music videos and bigger projects. Soon after graduating from American University, Felix Penzarella and Habib Awan formed Burning Glass Media. They spent two years working as filmmakers in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area honing their craft and perfecting their art. The two companies found themselves working on many projects together and soon became good friends. Realizing the potential they had not just as individuals, but as a team with a diverse skill set and experiences, they all decided to join forces. Adding Joseph Yoo to the team to handle business development and finance was the final ingredient needed to create The Focal Range. The guys then made the decision to establish TFR headquarters in Brooklyn, NY, where today they thrive amongst the top filmmakers in New York City.

Mission: We offer high quality film and media production services in a variety of areas. Our creativity, expertise, and skill is captured in the beautiful, thoughtful, creative and original content that we produce. We maintain focus and drive when seeing a product through to its final completion, taking pride in everything that we create whether it be a narrative film or a music video. As a tight-knit group, we work efficiently while still creating the best product possible. We live, eat and breathe media production out of our Brooklyn offices where the six of us live and work together day in and day out. We are truly dedicated to what we do because we love what we do. It's this passion, combined with our talents and ambition, that makes us the perfect production company to take on any project.
