Aunt Max Motion Pictures provides the physical basis for works in the realms of the performing arts, new media art, film, television, and video.
Aunt Max Entertainment, a full-service film and television production company based in St. Louis, Mo., displays the hospitality of the heartland while delivering state-of-the-art creative projects on par with the best and brightest in the industry.
Leading the creative team for Aunt Max Entertainment is senior producer Andy W. Meyer. As top producer, Meyer draws upon creative vision culled from years of film, television and varied entertainment experience. In the ‘90s, he wowed visitors at the Anheuser-Busch-owned Grant’s Farm in St. Louis as the bird and elephant show host. (Oh, the behind-the-scenes tales of working with those intelligent creatures! On days closed to the public, Meyer wandered the acreage on elephant back.) From St. Louis, he went on to promote the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales at SeaWorld in San Diego. Studying acting in Hollywood under esteemed director Carey Scott, Meyer forged professional connections particularly helpful now in his production work. Scott, for instance, teams up regularly with Aunt Max on a number of projects.
Past engagements included work with ESPN and the Golf Channel during the PGA Tour. Meyer acted as associate producer on an independent film, “My Dad,” shot in St. Louis during summer 2008. The T.V. pilot “Tracking Andy” held his attention after that and then a documentary film, “Casting Shadows” about world-renowned sculptor Michael Dunbar.
Working with senior producers Jay Blakesburg and Hank Neuberger, Meyer produced the iClips Network’s summer “Couch Tour,” broadcasting music shows for greats like Willie Nelson, Incubus, Bob Weir and Ratdog, Adrian Grenier (from Entourage), Primus, Les Claypool, Los Lobos, The Black Crowes, Method Man, Redman and others. He also produced a live show from ComicCon for iClips, entailing interaction with Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hunk), Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious, LOST, Avatar), Cameron Bright (The Twilight Saga, X-men 3), Alex Meraz (The Twilight Saga), Jerome Blake (Star Wars), Todd Bridges (Diff’rent Strokes), Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years, The Spirit), Ray Park (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Mennace, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, X-Men), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Carribean), to name a few.
Meyer deals closely with the Missouri Film Commission in promoting T.V. and film production in the Midwest.
