Our History

Before Launch Media became a full-service video production company in Downtown Baton Rouge, we were GreenScreenTV.

In 2005, John Jackson and Michael Trufant founded GreenScreenTV through volunteer partnerships with over 50 Baton Rouge area nonprofits.  They focused on relationship building and offered a quick-turnaround, “retail” style video product.

However, John quickly realized that to survive the emerging technologies that enabled mass production of the current product GSTV offered, he needed to refocus the business model to marketing and documentary style productions.  

In 2009, GSTV became Launch Media, marking the rebrand with a move into the Celtic Media Center.

In October 2014, we moved into our new space in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge, the Creative Bloc. This co-working campus, the brainchild of John Jackson, caters to creative industry professionals.  We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to work in an environment of creative peers in graphic design, photography, web development, event production, brand consulting, and even other video production companies.  

We also operate a 2500 sq. ft. studio space, fully equipped for video production needs of any type.

Over the past 10 years, Launch Media evolved into a full-service, solutions-based multimedia production company that specializes in creating visual communication solutions. 

We are an award-winning team of creative problem solvers.

We approach each project as a unique opportunity to transcend communication barriers.  Our goal is always to create an effective visual solution that not only addresses the immediate needs of our clients, but also provides a lasting impact. 

At Launch Media, we value philanthropic culture because it’s part of our foundation story. (And, because it’s the right thing to do.)  Through our relationships with local nonprofits, we cultivate a sense of corporate responsibility within our company culture. 

We believe in nurturing the community we work in, even though our clients are everywhere. And, we are proud of our diverse portfolio from local businesses to Fortune 500 companies to international organizations. We know that it is the result of a team who always develops meaningful relationships.

We don’t like to pat ourselves on the back, but…

We’ve received numerous accolades for video production excellence in the form of Telly Awards and American Advertising Awards (AAA).

In 2013, the company received the AAA “Best in Show Overall” award; the highest creative honor possible in local advertising.

In 2014, the local chapter of the Advertising American Federation with the “Company Service Award” honored us for our dedication to the advertising community during the past year.

Also, in 2013 and 2014, Launch Media received “LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Business” awards.  And the next year, Launch Media’s Founder and CEO, John Jackson, was honored as Baton Rouge Business Report’s 2015 “Young Business Leader of the Year.” 

We specialize our team to meet your needs.

In addition to these accomplishments, Launch Media is highly regarded for its work within the Corporate and Industrial industries working with such prestigious clients as McDermott International, Turner Industries, Shell Oil, GE and Albemarle Corporation.

Launch Media offers both top down & peer-to-peer management communication platforms; which deliver consistent messaging for their clientele’s audience. Additionally, Launch team members are familiar with the hazards of filming in unusual environments; therefore we maintain a crew with top of mind awareness who are all certified with various safety and security credentials.
