Cap Gun Collective was originally founded in Chicago in 2009 by Executive Producer Matt Abramson, director Alex Fendrich, and Producer Kaitlyn Parks. In 2011, the company opened an office in London with Executive Producer Oliver Allgrove. Cap Gun Collective is part of the successful grouping of Whitehouse Post “One Roof” partner companies that includes Gentleman Scholar and Carbon VFX.
Since its 2009 inception Cap Gun Collective has developed and produced a number of original content properties, including The Venue, which won the Comedy Central Pilot Competition in 2012. Cap Gun also produced the web series Teachers with director Matt Miller and improv comedy troupe The Katydids. The series is showcased on The Onion website and is also being developed into a longer format series.
Cap Gun will continue their successful foray into original content with Cap Gun TV (CGTV). The innovative model will develop content for broadcast, film, digital, and video on demand, incubating micro-content into larger, fully realized properties and finding new ways of funding and distribution within the landscapes of traditional and new media.
