Southern Love Productions Chicago post production

Southern Love Productions features a Chicago-based AVID video editor and field sound engineer, Travis Marriott. He has produced his own independent documentary productions and works as an editor-for-hire.

Having an English accent and David Attenborough as his hero didn't make the five-year-old Travis too popular on the playground in Texas. Regardless, he has maintained his love for documentaries for over thirty years.

Travis' experience ranges from professional to guerrilla documentary, short and feature productions across Texas, New Mexico, Utah, The Blue Ridge Mountains, Oklahoma, Finland, Sweden, Wales, Northern Mexico and most recently Angola. Awards and recognition include:

  • 2009 Hermes Award and three Telly Awards.
  • 2008 two Telly Awards and two Aurora Awards.
  • 2001 Austin Film Society's Texas Filmmaker Production Fund for 'Crime Pays'.
  • 2000 Plano, Texas airs on Dallas/Ft. Worth PBS.

Travis has a BS in Radio-Television-Film production and a BA in History from the University of Texas at Austin, and recently completed his MA in International Journalism at Cardiff University in the UK.
