Goodwill of San Antonio
As the 2010 holiday season fast approaches, it’s the time of year when we’re starting to not only schedule projects for 2011 but also invest some energy in reviewing the year gone by. It’s sort of annual tradition around here as it gives us a chance to celebrate what’s working and see if we can identify new strategies to help Geomedia continue to grow as a full service San Antonio production company.
While going through this process, one of the bright spots of 2010 that really stood out for us occurred back in February during the American Advertising Federation San Antonio Addy Awards. Geomedia has been a participant at these awards for many years (not sure we’ll ever live down our custom built Devo hats ) and it’s always a thrill when we can help one of our advertising agency clients earn some recognition from their peers in the industry for a project we know firsthand how hard they worked on. Some of those winners this year included Creative Civilization, The Atkins Group, Texas Creative and Synthetic Pictures.
Perhaps the highlight of the night for us though was the 2 Gold and 1 Silver Addy Awards the campaign for Goodwill of San Antonio earned. Not only because the organization is filled with wonderful people concentrated on helping others (and San Antonio Corporate Strategy & Advertising firm Bradford Lawton was great to work with), but these awards marked the first time Geomedia was recognized for our Cinematography.
These kudos felt especially warm and fuzzy in that they’re in large part the result of a multi-year concerted effort to build out our Geomedia live action production department. Some key milestones on this journey included Zach Nasits joining the Geomedia team as our DP in 2007, our acquisition of a Red One Digital Cinema Camera in 2008 and putting our Geomedia grip truck on the road in 2009.
Being able to integrate all these resources into our workflow has been key, and now seeing the culmination of those efforts start to bear fruit and hearing how happy our clients are to be able to get high quality 3D Animation, Visual Effects and now Live Action all under one roof in San Antonio is what Creative Atmosphere is all about.
