I'd like to give a plug for Athens Creative Theatre. They always put on good, unique shows, in addition to the popular favorites such as Annie. Last night we filmed "Haunted Honeymoon" which is both a play and a radio drama. WUGA recorded the show as well for radio rebroadcast, so you'll also be able to hear it there.
A portion of the video can be seen here.
We've just plunked down some more money for another 50 CD set of Royalty free music. This collection will be added to our already huge catalog of stock music that we use in our video productions. We offer this music as part of our editing services. Our current collection now includes over 140 CDs of music and sound effects, which ranges from techno, country, classical, and just about everything you can imagine for any mood.
Currently finishing up a photo montage for an upcoming wedding. Traditionally, the bride and groom will get a photo montage that will be shown during the Rehearsal Dinner. It's a good opportunity for the families of both sides to get to know each and break the ice. Take a look at our packages and presentation options if you also need a way to show your montage to a large crowd.
This is a very busy week for us with filming and editing. One event we will be filming that I'd like to mention is a book signing party with Grady Thrasher for his upcoming book "Tim and Sally's Year in Poems". You can visit his website and read about his children's book series with Tim and Sally by visiting http://www.timandsally.com. There will be a special poetry reading of many selections from the book by some notable local artists and authors. The event will be held at Ashford Manor this Sunday. Look for webclips of the event and the readings on the Tim and Sally website soon.

In this digital age, everyone is converting their old analog sources to digital, which we strongly recommend. Not only VHS tapes, but also audio cassettes. A good client of ours recently brought in a cassette tape of a memorial service that he needed converted to CD. This is a very simple and affordable service we offer. We can also create mp3's and other audio formats as well. In the process, we can clean up the audio and make it louder, filter it, or whatever is needed to make it clearer. Please look at our Audio Services page for more information.
Yesterday I received bad news from a past client - his home had burned down and he was calling to see if we had a copy of his personal project we did in 2008 (it was his wedding). Because it is our policy to archive every job we do (except for media transfers unless requested) I was able to retrieve the master disc and make copies for him. This is a free service we offer our clients. We have master SVHS tapes that go back to 1983 even. It is a good feeling to be able to help a client out in a situation where most of the personal items lost can never be replaced.
One of the nest features of our new website is the ability to create unique client pages that are password protected. In the past, we've provided clients with video previews online by sending a link to a video for them to download. There are many problems with this workflow, but most of those problems are addressed now with this new system. If you are a client, you will be excited about this new feature.
