I’m Joseph W. Bourke, Owner and Creative Director of Bourke Media. My over thirty years experience in advertising and television production as an Art Director, Motion Graphics Artist, Writer, and Television Producer gives you an advantage: you’re dealing with a seasoned professional who knows every aspect of the media creation and production process. If you’re just considering electronic media production, or are at the Request for Proposal stage, I invite you to get in touch. Because I work outside of the Boston metro area, I can bring projects in for a fraction of metro pricing, but with the same, or higher, level of production quality.
My clients are local and regional businesses and non-profits, large regional businesses, and high-tech businesses who sell their products all over the world. They all have one thing in common: they have a story which needs to be told. Their story may be meant to sell more products, help a new owner of that product make it work, or tell a compelling story. I also do contract work for a number of advertising agencies and media production houses who don’t have an animator/motion-graphics artist on staff.Read more
We create interactive DVDs which can include video productions, slide shows, data files (pdfs work especially well), and other rich media, putting your entire library on one DVD. This can then be distributed to clients, sales staff, potential customers, you name it!
Flash has become an integral part of getting your message across, and through interactive elements on both Websites and DVDs, carefully planned so as to lead the viewer through a complex process, or to the digital point of sale, you can make the process easy on the user. It takes some up front time planning the flow of information, and it’s never a good idea just to throw eye candy on the page to attract the viewer. My experience in presenting complex processes in a clear and understandable way will make the process of creating interactive media which works, easier on you.Read more
I produce all of my video projects in HD, which means that your production is “future-proofed”. The master copy will be ready for any delivery system, now, or in the future. I am currently producing for television, web delivery, and a variety of hand held smart devices, from Blackberrys to iPads, from Androids to PDAs.
As a Writer/Producer/Motion Graphics Artist/Editor I can take your entire project from the planning stage right through final delivery, and you only need deal with one source. From a continuity standpoint, this means that I will supervise your image through the whole process, which will ensure that your message is right on the mark!Read more
A large part of any video project, aside from the footage, is the graphics that support that footage. Some of the productions I create are entirely without footage, relying on Motion Graphics and Software Screen Capture to tell my clients’ stories. I enjoy brainstorming with my clients – no one works well in a vacuum – and I love to work on projects which are a bit outside of my realm of experience. By working closely with a client as a content expert, I can bring my creativity to the project, while making sure that the final outcome is what my client envisioned. Some of my Motion Graphics capabilities are listed below – it is by no means a complete list…Read more
Your recent article appeared in one of our most popular editions ever – as evidenced by the fact that we have almost NONE left in our inventory. We thank you so much for your participation in the Creative COW Magazine, your great story, and just for being a member of the herd.Nora Williams, Assistant to Timothy Wilson, CreativeCOW.net
JUST GOT IT AND IT’S BEAUUUUUUTIFUL!!! Really, the whole team is delighted. Your result is definitely worth your hard work!
We had indeed an excellent collaboration. The work was exhausting but the quality of the final product is great. Now it’s just about a couple of final edits, the first VIP screening on May 16 with the President and four of his ministers, and on May 23 I’ll be in Vermont with a couple of DVD copies and send you one. I’ll keep you informed on the development of the film.Sébastien Pennes, Chief of Party (Central African Republic) at Tetra Tech ARD

Joe was always on time with his elements for any project. He understood the vision and accomplished the work that was needed to get any job done. His sense of visual textures added depth to any project we worked on.Bret Upham, Instructor at the New England Institute of Art
