a Morales Production got it's start on the campus of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
As a student, Jason Morales spent his summers and "extra" time as a student worker creating videos, running sound, and helping with the technical aspects of new student orientation and freshman "Connections". Jason was a broadcast journalism and film student who spent his free time building a recording studio in his college dorm, therefore he was the perfect candidate for this job.
Jason's senior year, he began touring with the Contemporary Christian band, Casting Crowns. While on the tour, he served as an audio technician. Back in Birmingham, graduation awaited him.
Upon graduation, Jason continued to work for Samford each summer as they put together new student orientation and Connections. When a couple of friends asked Jason if he could film and edit a wedding video for them, Jason stumbled into the wedding videography business.
Jason has always had the desire to be a part of Christian music. About a year after he graduated from college, he began to seek after a role on another tour. Jason was connected with Todd Agnew, a Christian artist out of Nashville, Tennessee. Jason joined Todd Agnew's team on The Promise Remains Tour in 2009. He took on the role of Merchandise Manager, and began to develop business skills and sales experience.
When Jason returned to Birmingham after the his second tour, he began working for Apple as a retail Specialist. While working at Apple, Jason further developed his business skills and sales experience. As a specialist, he has taught workshops for customers, conducted technical support, and joined Apple's business team. After about three years, Jason was promoted to the position that he currently holds, Business Specialist. This position allows him to provide Apple solutions, technology, and services to business customers while also building relationships and connecting with businesses in the Birmingham community and surrounding areas.
While working at Apple, Jason has simultaneously kept working in all things production. He continues to work as the technical director for Samford's orientations and Connections events. He has continued to shoot wedding videos, build a videography business clientele, volunteer with the technical team at church, and he's even managed to fit in another tour with Casting Crowns.
In 2011, Jason joined Casting Crowns on their Come to the Well Tour, which covered the entire United States over about a six month period. Jason worked as the merchandise sales associate on this 90 city tour. While on tour, he was able to produce video elements for the concourse, while also capturing video footage of each artist with the best seat in the house.
Recently, Jason has added a new element to the a Morales Production business; his wife Jessica. Jason married fellow Samford alumnae, Jessica Sansom in September of 2012. Jessica was also a journalism and communications student at Samford, but her specialty is focused more in design, writing, public relations, and advertising.
The Morales' truly are a package deal when it comes to production. He is the technical guy who can figure out logistics, capture video footage, edit, and make it look and sound fantastic. She drives the business side with a creative flair and always has a plan of action. She's also not bad with a camera and enjoys shooting still photos and accompanying Jason as a second videographer for weddings. With Jason and Jessica together, a Morales Production has become a full-service production company offering anything from a basic wedding video to photography, design, sound engineering, and event planning.
