Video Entertainment Marketing

Call-Back Theater Video Series

Call-Back is a local cable access and internet reality video series, blog and podcast that I designed as a marketing tool to raise awareness and interest in local theatre productions throughout Northeast Ohio.  I host, shoot and edit these episodes to use as tools to attract not only audiences, but also corporate sponsors to create new revenue streams for performing arts groups.

The Call-Back Blog

STAGES: Stories from the BW Music Theater Program

Based on his work on the Call-Back video documentaries, Geoff was commissioned to produce a new series for the Baldwin-Wallace College music theater program in 2009.  This documentary series called “STAGES: Stories from the BW Music Theater Program” follows the stories of the students and teachers of the acclaimed Baldwin-Wallace College Music Theatre Program led by Victoria Bussert. Produced by theater artist and documentarian Geoffrey Short, STAGES gives viewers unprecedented access to this exclusive program that draws the very best talent from around the country to this small private college in Berea, Ohio (just southwest of Cleveland). Graduates of this program often go on to careers on Broadway.

Multi-Media Samples

A few samples of video & other multi-media projects Geoff has produced for theater productions and other marketing & advertising projects.



My personal website.  This is the home of video documentaries I have produced, audio and photo samples from theater productions and various music projects and more!


This is the home page of the website I designed for the musical "Oklahoma!" which I'm currently directing.

Based the design on a more historically accurate gritty and sepia-toned nature of the Old West along with incorporation of Native American Themes appropos of the "Indian Territory" Oklahoma once was.


This is the home page of the website I designed for the musical "City of Angels" which I directed in Winter '09.

I based the design on some of the film noir styles of the show.


This is the home page of the website I designed for the musical "Assassins" which I directed in Fall '08.

I wanted the site to be dark and ominous while still reflecting some of the red, white and blue themes.
