Before founding Most Visual, Chuck Przybyl spent more than a decade as a photographer, director of photography, and editor on projects for major brands and artists, working with a wide range of commercial, documentary, and corporate production companies and clients.
A graduate of Columbia College of Chicago, Chuck brings a contemporary sensibility to everyday scenes and settings, portraying an attention to texture, framing, and detail that results in truly influential videos for clients and viewers. That sensibility is owed to his background as a photographer and visual artist.
Chuck grew up on the south side of Chicago in Calumet City and later moved to Hammond, Indiana, a gritty, industrial region just 20 minutes from downtown.
“They called Calumet City Sin City, because it had more bars per capita than any place in the country,” he says. “Hammond was industrial, and when I got into photography, I would shoot a lot of the industry and also street portraits. I was drawn to the gritty, crumbling factories and especially their details. The scarred walls, abandoned spaces, and surreal details became my visual style. It’s something I incorporate into video my video work tool.”
He approaches his work as a “purely visual sensation,” honing in on the essence of subjects to say more about the larger context of a scene.
Chuck’s unique style can be found in projects produced for: Princeton University, Marriott, Chicago Architecture Foundation, Chicago History Museum, The MacArthur Foundation, Gatorade, EA Sports, Bleacher Report, T-Mobile, and Mozilla.
In addition to his commercial work, Chuck has shown his narrative and documentary work at film festivals worldwide. He works out of a Pilsen studio with a team of artists and technicians.
