What’s the biggest challenge facing your type of business, and how are you approaching it? Adapting to current technologies and utilizing the best tools for a specific job is always on our mind. Choosing the flavor of the week isn’t necessarily the best answer, especially since our goal is to utilize technology in pursuit of telling our clients’ stories and communicating their messages.
What’s the biggest change would you like to see in the business climate in this area? Today’s economic landscape is difficult, and companies sometimes forget that communication to clients and customers is often more important than ever in this economy. Video production, webcasting and “video on demand” products are surprisingly affordable when you consider the wide audience you can reach and the consistency of message that you achieve.
What else should the readers know about your business? We strive to adopt a fair and logical approach to each project we undertake. This includes taking the time to understand the needs of our clients, understanding their message, and applying technology and resources to each project as necessary.
