The two of us have been working with video since 1998 and we are based out of Tiffin, Ohio.

What started out as a general interest in movies, quickly turned into a desire to create our own independent films. Our father, Dan Doepker, is a well-regarded videographer in the area with over 25 years of experience. What began as a summer (and winter, and spring, and fall) job helping him out with various weddings and other live events, quickly turned into a passion to do the same ourselves. We have since taken up the mantle and have done work for:

National Machinery

St. Francis Senior Ministries

The Tiffin Music and Art Festival

Dance Unlimited

Best Break

Calvert Catholic Schools

Firelands Symphony Orchestra

Get In The Ark (music group)

Ohio Hydroponics

Watching For Foxes (music group)

St. Francis Earth Literacy Center

Field of Dreams Drive-In Theater

Ever Burning Bright (music group)

The Tiffin Charitable Foundation

The Castros (music group)

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz

Carmie's Grill & Bar

Old Fort Banking Company

Re/Max Unlimited Results Realty

We, along with several long-time friends and collaborators, continue to make our own original productions, some of which can be viewed on the Short Films page, as well as projects for individual consumers. Check out our YouTube Channel HERE or our Vimeo Page HERE to see more of our work.

The name Dead Shark Productions not only reflects our love of film, but serves as a reminder to constantly keep “moving” forward, continue learning new skills, and not let our quality of work plateau, or motivations wane. We do not settle for “good enough” and are always trying to improve upon ourselves, lest we become dead in the water.
