They are the missing piece to this local initiative of bringing media projects to the area. We can’t wait to capture all the excitement, passion, ideas and drama that will be part of this event. The amount of interesting storylines will lead to many threads (meaning products) for our multi-purposing models.”

Our services’ provide the solution that was needed to bring this project to the event this weekend. We expect to be involved in many more projects with them.”
