From Concept to Final Cut.

Ardent Studios’ Film Department is directed by Jonathan Pekar, graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. After leaving Memphis in the mid 80’s, Pekar found success in Los Angeles as an actor, stand-up comedian, producer, and singer/songwriter. His resume as a producer includes work on the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, When Predators Attack, and I Was Bitten. Pekar has also worked on a host of music videos, documentaries, and commercials.

With his return to Memphis, Pekar gave new life to Ardent’s Film Department. Within his first year back, he won AFD a Midsouth Emmy for Best Commercial Spot for an animated commercial for the Memphis Music Foundation. From concept to final cut, Pekar utilizes every aspect of Ardent’s world-class recording facilities and his own talent behind the camera to create first-class videography for nearly any type of project.

From music videos to commercials to documentaries, television series to feature-length films, Pekar and his creative team at Ardent Studios’ Film Department are ready to bring your idea to vivid life for both the eyes and ears.
