How it all started
Our founder Jeremy Duckworth loved being in front of the camera as an actor. But after relocating to Northwest Arkansas in 2011 to marry his beautiful wife Susanne, Jeremy saw a need for video and cinema production in the area.
He drew on years of being on set with some of the best directors in full-scale productions back in Wilmington, North Carolina, along with his passion for learning about new equipment, techniques, and distribution channels, to start a production company. Bod High Productions was named after his and Susanne’s newborn son, Bodhi. Although it is pronounced 'Bo dee', Bod High soon became his nickname.
After starting Bod High, Jeremy was hired to direct and produce the local television show Cooking Today for two seasons on KNWA. This is where he met Miguel.
In 2016, his wife Susanne decided to join forces full time, bringing years of experience doing graphic design and marketing. Together, they partnered with Chef Brooks to create a new farm-to-table show, Cook with Brooks, that ran statewide on AETN/PBS for Season 1. Although that show ended, they have moved on to other shows here in NWA.
In 2017, Miguel Palacios joined the team. Miguel and Jeremy had worked together on Cooking Today and quickly realized their shared passion for videography. After several years of calling on each other for help with various projects, they realized they could achieve more as one team. With the addition of Miguel, Bod High is taking on more and more short content and focusing on video marketing as a whole.
Now, together with a talented team of freelancers, Bod High is able to excel at any production request that comes our way. Of course we can do a television show, but we also love live event captures, commercials, testimonials, web series, on line content and much more.
A former race-car driver and fabricator, Jeremy worked on a couple of NASCAR teams before realizing his heart was in film and TV. Check out all he has done as an actor, working for the CW, HBO, and Universal Studios.
Now, Jeremy brings years of experience in front of the camera to his production work. He has learned every aspect of production in order to maintain a lean operation while shooting and editing 320 television episodes, feature films, corporate videos, and many other projects. He has built a company and reputation on hard work and word-of-mouth referrals.
