Our company started in the mid 1970s as a multi-track recording studio, producing film scores, albums for musical artists of all styles, and radio commercials.

SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS had several name changes to reflect the times, but has always been owned and operated by Gary Scovil.

SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS added video production in the early 1980s and in 1984 changed our name to SPOTLIGHT VIDEO, servicing the burgeoning consumer video market.

By the early 1990s, SPOTLIGHT VIDEO had out-grown its original mandate and changed our name to VISION MEDIA, moving into the production of corporate training and promotional videos, cable television shows and television commercials.

Over the years, VISION MEDIA become one of the country's most respected companies for state-of-the-art video and audio production. In 2009, Gary Scovil decided, after the expansion to Fairhope Alabama, there is nothing better for name recognition than one's own name and decided to go back to SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS.

In the early 1990s, Gary Scovil saw that the future of video production would be in computer technology. SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS made the switch to the latest in cutting edge technology computer equipment, while other "Old School" companies were left in the dust. SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS' clients come to rely on the creativity and uncompromising technical support they receive with every project.

SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS now primarily focuses on film production, having produced several documentaries in recent years, but SCOVIL PRODUCTIONS will always be available for studio and on-location video/audio services to clients. Our clients include Fortune 500 corporations, broadcasters, independent producers, and many more.

  • I would not recommend this business

In 1975 Charles Scovil, the head of Stamford Observatory, had an old dome on the grounds of the observatory. The dome was defective and could never work but no one had the money to remove it from the property. So Mr. Scovil tricked a group of high school students from Armonk, NY into removing the dome from his property by offering to "donate" the defective dome to them for an observatory they were building. Of course, Mr. Scovil knew that the dome would not work but he lied to the students, telling them it was a perfectly good dome.

The students put in a great amount of effort, work and money to remove the dome from the Stamford Observatory grounds but once they got the dome to Armonk they found out the dome was useless. This shows that Mr. Scovil is a liar and a man who is so devious and unethical that he would trick a group of kids into doing something that would be disastrous to them. He is immoral to the very core. There are few people on this earth who are as unethical, devious and loathsome as Charles Scovil.

Jim Wainwright

Jim Wainwright's "Ballad of the Bounty" tells the story of the ill-fated tall rigged ship "Bounty" as she fought to survive the howling winds and high seas of Hurricane Sandy moving along the East Coast of the United States in October 2012. Jim says, "As a songwriter, I felt the story needed to be told in the framework of an old sea ballad to honor those brave souls who lived and sailed on the Bounty over the years." http://www.jimwainwrightmusic.com
