what we do

Stop/Go Media draws on the combined talents of industry experts Ila Couch & Jake Slaney. Together they bring more than thirty years experience in broadcast television, film, commercials, and digital media.  Here's how they can help you: 

  • Work with you to develop a creative concept and create a budget
  • Access their creative network to staff up your project
  • Produce, shoot, edit and deliver 

Who We are

Ila Couch was born in New Zealand which makes her a Kiwi, so called for the nation's flightless bird (not the fruit). She got her start in production creating a music television news show before heading to London, and then on to the US where she's been working in Broadcast Television for the past 15 years. Ila is often hired as a one-woman-band to produce & shoot content for networks like ABC, A&E, Discovery, and TLC.  She has an acute instinct for story and is very good at making people feel at ease in front of the camera. 

Jake Slaney was born in New York and moved to Birmingham, Alabama too late in his childhood to develop a southern accent. His obsession with sound began at the age of six when he started making field recordings; dismantling cassettes so he could make his edits.  Jake studied Recording Engineering in Nashville Tennessee as well as the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) in Byron Bay, Australia. As a mixer he has worked in feature film, commercials, and broadcast television and has a long list of credits. On a recent project he mixed sound for the second season of Brockmire, a Hank Azaria comedy series for IFC.  An avid rock-climber in his youth, Jake has climbed El Capitan - twice, which translates surprisingly well to production.
