As we move into the new year I have taken the time to reflect on 2011 and all the growth we have seen at Crumlic Media. Not every company can claim their best years in recent times as the economy seems to be draining the life out of the efforts of many small businesses. I count myself as fortunate to be offering services at rates that welcome new clients as well as bring existing clients back for new and ongoing projects.
This year we accepted orders for new projects with many of out clients who joined us in 2010 such as New York Enterprise Report, Agora Gallery, Verdi Square Festival of the Arts and GT Development. The Historic Hotel Bethlehem, a client since 2009 ordered a complete re-shoot and assembly of their video that welcomes guests to the hotel and tells them of the attractions and amenities at the historic hotel. We redesigned the video into a modular format that would allow them to use certain segments on specific web pages as well as the complete (longer) video on their in house TV channel as well as in the courtesy van while transporting guests from the airport to the hotel.
In 2011 we also welcomed numerous new clients such as HASTED KREAUTLER Gallery, Jack Russells New York. UGI, The Yale Russian Chorus Alumni Association and several individual artists. We also worked with our friends at the Allentown Fire Department in Pennsylvania to provide materials for thier fire prevention outreach programs. We continued working in television news with our TV family at WFMZ TV in Allentown, Pennsylvania - providing services in Allentown and in New York City.
Hunter college joined the Crumlic Media family as we started providing our "On Stage" products to the Center for Creative Writing for their various lecture series.
2012 already looks strong with continued growth, especially in the artist and art gallery video arena of which we are the leading provider and and innovator in New York City. January is historically a slow period for video production but we have already booked a record number of January projects with more inquiries coming in. Additionally, Keith Butler who has provided part-time help to Crumlic Media working in graphic design, photography, book keeping sales and second camera operations will join the team full-time in February. This will add abilities to the Crumlic Media catalog allowing us to grow into new areas while also expanding flexibility in our core focus areas.
For any artist or business wishing to make use of video, photography or graphic design in their promotion, sales, training or for any purpose, Crumlic Media is ready to provide outstanding service at a reasonable rate. We will work hard to help you develop a high quality video program that serves your needs and increases your sales. Please contact Bill Crumlic at 646-596-6652 to discusss your project needs.
