Powderhouse Productions is a creative media company that provides entertainment content for television and the Web. The company was founded in 1994 by Joel Olicker and Tug Yourgrau, who named the company after the Revolutionary War gunpowder storehouse located in Somerville less than a mile from their offices. Their team includes producers, actors, editors, animators and writers whose work has appeared on Discovery Channel, History Channel, Animal Planet and The Learning Channel. They have also worked with national brands such as FedEx and Goodyear to help them make commercials that complement a channel's content.
The company accepts casting calls from local actors, who need to send in a three-minute DVD of themselves showing off their skills in order to apply. The entire Powderhouse team is represented by Creative Artists Agency and their website boasts job listings for anyone interested in entertainment and storytelling.
