who we are

Sperra Studios was born out of the desire and need for a production hub in central Kansas. 

We began as a small commercial production company, and have been happily producing content for over 10 years for local as well as national clients. Along the way we have realized that our larger contribution could be to provide services within the production pipeline such as studio rental, location sound and audio postproduction, motion graphics and design, equipment rental and crew brokering to other production companies as well as producing our own work.

In a 1963 speech, John F. Kennedy said that ”…a rising tide lifts all boats.” We believe that by making our skills, space and equipment available to the production community at large, we enable the possibility of doing higher quality work across the city and thus are better able to serve our clients more effectively.

what people are saying

  • Neil and the Sperra crew breathe energy and life into every project they do! Neil’s abundant creativity is matched with his professionalism and expertise. He has a tremendous eye behind the camera and a tremendous mind for the vision of a project. Neil is a delight to work with and will take any project you have and produce something even greater than what you first imagined!

    Courtney Doctor

    Communicator, Saint Louis, MO
  • “Neil and his crew were top-notch talent technically, paying attention to the finest details, but what made the experience special is how they consistently asked the right questions. Instead of the equipment and technology taking the focus, Neil really lets the story of the project take the lead.”

    “There’s an art to working your butt off and still having fun. That’s the art of Neil and the Sperra crew. Shooting can be stressful, but his crew allowed us to keep it light and fun, even when deadlines weren’t on our side.”

    Trent Wagler

    The Steel Wheels, Harrisonburg, VA
  • Neil has a very unique ability to make art functional. Whether conceptualizing the color scheme for the interior or exterior of a home or planning the art direction of a film or transforming a stage for any range of productions, he creates with the user in mind. And by ‘user’ I don’t just mean the consumer or audience. He keeps crew and team members in mind as he builds his designs. That’s why I choose to work with him.

    Krysta Masciale

    Principle, Big Deal Branding, Los Angles, CA

  • I have enjoyed working with Neil over the years because of his unique ability to make the scene a calm and peaceful place to be while shooting. I appreciate his rare talents in creating the content and directing, producing, and editing the finished product.

    Reg Boothe

    Developer, Reflection Ridge, Wichita, KS
  • “I have had the privilege of working with Neil and the Sperra team on several of our church projects including a capital campaign which generated 3.5 million dollars! An integral part of that campaign was a video produced by NBFV. Not only was the final product excellent but Neil’s creative insight was essential in the design phase as well.”

    Chris Walsh

    Executive Pastor, First Mennonite Brethren Church, Wichita, KS
  • Neil just really has an eye for capturing the essence and heart of the project. It doesn’t hurt that he’s just a great guy to work with either.

    Matt Hampton

    Executive Director, Lose the Training Wheels, Wichita, KS
  • It has been my pleasure to collaborate with Neil Bontrager on a number of challenging client projects. Neil is a creative and a great communicator who is also blessed with strong strategic thinking and finishing skills. He has the ability to see the big idea behind a project and build just the right team to pull all the details together. Most importantly, though, Neil is a good man. He’s humble, honest, kind and operates with the highest standard of integrity. Working with Neil has elevated our brand.

    Jeffrey Carney

    Partner, The Strategy Group LLC
  • With Neil you get much more than a seasoned producer with a creative eye towards production; you get a trustworthy individual who collaborates, adapts to change, engages client input and always goes the extra mile. You can’t go wrong with Neil and the Sperra crew.
