HiLo Media was formed as a collaboration between Charles Heilig (Hi) and Joseph Nilo (Lo). They met while working at a video production house in Asheville, NC. Together as a side project, they co-hosted one of the first video podcasts, the Mac Pro Podcast, a weekly show about macs and media. Video proof here.
After going freelance, the collaboration continued on projects for dlo and Philips. The idea arose to pursue the growing need for affordable web-delivered product videos, screencasts, tutorials, training and marketing materials.
A few years later and many projects under their belts, Nilo and Heilig continue to create exciting content for clients, now with the support of trusted additional video editors, videographers, and on-camera talent.
Charles Heilig | Production Director
Chuck Heilig hails from North Carolina and has been emersed in film and video his whole life. His pop owned the local camera shop growing up, which gave him the chance to shoot film and video at a very early age. Chuck is a graduate of NC State University.
In addition to Hilo Media, Chuck is an active HD videographer and travels all over the US to shoot. He has captured footage in three different countries. Chuck spent the past four years in Charleston, SC, where he earned a local client base and worked as director of photography on two documentaries. He also worked on sound crew for a TV show and feature film.
Chuck has a unique and broad production base. He has done everything from cutting film on a flatbed editor to offline nonlinear editing. He continues to evolve with technology and enjoys all aspects of production.
Chuck lives with his (lovely) wife in San Francisco, CA.
Joseph Nilo | Post-Production Director
In addition to HiLo Media, Joseph Nilo is a television producer and post production specialist working professionally as an editor and colorist on content ranging from national broadcast HD to internet viral delivery.
He directed, wrote, produced, and online-edited season one of “Harvest Eating” which premiers nationally in the USA in 2010.
Joseph has had many years’ experience wearing many creative hats: editor, colorist, producer, director, writer, voiceover artist, composer. He gained online notoriety as a pioneer in the podcasting community by producing and hosting the Mac Pro Podcast and Mac Mediacast, video podcasts covering Apple-related news and tech, along with various other audio programs.
Joseph lives with his family in (beautiful) Asheville, NC.
