Backseat Conceptions is closed effective 12-31-2017

For over 15 years Backseat Conceptions has proudly produced & partnered on hundreds of projects spanning the media landscape around the world. We would like to thank all those who worked with us and of course the clients who supported our madness and ambitions! No list of projects can sum up the amount of talent and positive energy that has passed through the company from our employees & volunteers to our clients & fans.

However, It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the closing of Backseat Conceptions. With the partners all in different cities and working on distinctly different projects, it became apparent that a change was needed.

Thanks for being our friends and joining us on this crazy adventure. We will see you in the future!

Although Backseat may have come to an end, we all continue to work in our own new endeavors. You can contact us individually for your production needs:
