The people at Network Entertainment Studios spend a lot of time at musical performances, dance recitals, and sporting events. It's not that they're just extraordinarily popular or have huge extended families—they're there making sure that the people who are having their big day can remember it in clear audio and video for decades to come. The company started with one camera, one actor, and one director, and at first the founders came together with the goal of creating web series, and to create an online presence for artists and businesses. They still find time for their own creative work, but they've expanded to serve local businesses with animated promos, musicians with music videos, animated promos, explainer videos, and artists' live performances. From storyboarding to sound effects, the staff provide in-depth guidance at every step of the way to a work of moving art.

Chicago Limo Net ushers its office-, nightlife-, and airport-bound clientele about the Chicago area in a fleet of luxurious, custom buses and limousines. Twenty-four-passenger party buses bedecked in low-level lighting, leather couches, dancing poles, and mirror-laden roofs bestow a nightclub-like feel minus the acute stares of gargantuan doormen. Smaller 6- and 10-passenger limousines present many of the same creature comforts in a more aerodynamic package for airport or around-town trips. Each party conveyance is piloted by a professional chauffeur with extensive knowledge of downtown Chicago, who will gladly take the fastest or most scenic route and can offer unique insights into the city, such as how to differentiate between the Willis Tower and the pier's ferris wheel.
