Our first year as a company is coming to a close, and we have a lot to be thankful for. Some amazing things happened that we never could have imagined twelve months ago, and they sure have us excited about where we go from here.
This past January, I made a quiet vow to myself – to create more than I consume. To work on so many things that it’s impossible to watch more films/shows/etc than I’m actually making. Well, I can safely say “mission accomplished” on this front.
We have been fortunate to have been a part of so many vastly different projects with some immensely talented people… it’s honestly been quite humbling. Lots of highly creative people we’d never worked with before trusted us with their precious projects. These new relationships have shown us just how diverse creativity really is, and how flexible we need to be in order to meet the needs of these different projects.
To meet these great demands, our team grew considerably this year!! In fact, in January 2016 there was no team at all – just me, sitting on a laptop trying to make clients happy. But there are significant limits to what can be done as a team of one.
Now, we have three mixers and five sound editors to take on the needs of any project that comes our way. This team has met every challenge, pushed every boundary and done it all on some crazy deadlines… all for one team on a singular mission. Richard, Kevin, Mitch, Alex, Felix, Katie and Jayvon – I’d be nothing without all of your endless creative energy. If you haven’t had a chance to meet or work with these fine people yet, we’ll try to introduce you to them on this blog soon. Mitch already blogged for us a couple months back, and you can also read about a few of us on our About Us page.
Lastly, we were so honored to have been recognized for some amazing accolades this year. Two MPSE Golden Reel Award nominations, a Charity Film award nomination, a Clio Art Award and two projects that got into the Sundance Film Festival?? Seriously?!?
This is just year one. We are very excited as we look forward. The future is bright.
Happy Holidays and see you in 2017!
