Tell us a little bit about your company and your role there.
I work as the General Manager of Jumpstart Video Productions, a company that creates custom video content for TV advertising, websites, and social media. We also specialize in Live Corporate Webcasts, Aerial Drone footage, and Corporate Event Videography. I have worked at Jumpstart Video since 2009 and I wear many hats, including production coordinator, shooter, editor, scriptwriter, and director. My responsibilities include covering the Cleveland, Akron, and Pittsburgh markets. My counterpart at Jumpstart Video of Columbus manages that studio plus Cincinnati. I do voice work and have acted in several of our commercials. I have created more affordable cable TV spots than Martin Scorsese, ha! My clients tell me I always keep the shoots relaxed and stress-free. It’s always a fun time when you are doing work you enjoy. I live with my dog Scizzers and I am a volleyball maven.
What is your company most excited about in terms of marketing/video production/communications/advertising in 2017?
One of the things we are excited about here at Jumpstart Video is the grown of our team and capabilities. We currently have studio facilities in Akron, Pittsburgh, and Columbus and have recently leased an expanded studio space just minutes outside of Cleveland. We hope to be up and running there within the next few months.
Video is a great way to show off Cleveland. What are some of the most exciting projects you’ve been working on or just wrapped up?
We are currently working on set with Spectrum Reach and Magnet Media (NY based video production company) on 2 short films for Spectrum Reach 365. There have been long shoot days, but it has been very excited to be part of this project. Shooting will wrap Saturday, August 12th. In June we worked with a local Independence company to shoot video and provide staging for a 3 day conference. There were keynote speakers, demonstrations, and vendors from all over the US. Many of our TV production clients take risks with fun or off the wall ideas. One of our clients like to have fun with there TV commercials and developed a character named Shooter Paul – Charles Auto Family.
What has been the most valuable takeaway of your AAF Corporate Membership?
