Robert Berning III (Trey), decided to keep Robert Berning Productions in operation, honoring both his father’s name and legacy. Additionally, Trey realized the growing importance of digital media and founded Velocity Agency, a full-service advertising and digital marketing firm.
Sadly in 2011, Robert Berning Jr. passed away, leaving a tremendous hole in the hearts of people throughout the community.
Following Hurricane Katrina, Berning Productions rapidly expanded into a full-service traditional advertising agency, offering media buying, account management, copywriting and more.
Berning Productions expanded its services to include graphic design, original music scores, motion graphics and animation.
Robert Berning continued to grow the company, and eventually became the premier commercial production studio in New Orleans and throughout the southeast region.
The company relocated to 710 Papworth Ave at the beginning of the 80’s and shared the space with a film production equipment company. Two years later, Berning purchased all of 710 Papworth to become the sole tenant.
In 1975, Robert Berning, Jr. founded Robert Berning Productions, Inc. and operated out of a 200-year-old New Orleans French Quarter walk up.
