DISCRETION: A CONSCIOUS CHOICE TO EARN CONFIDENCE

There is an old saying that goes; “ A good friend is the person you can call to bail you out of jail, a great friend is the person you call to help you bury the body.” While it may be an extreme version of the example, this is the type of discretion I feel we and those like us […]

SMALL BUSINESS OUTREACH. A NEW APPROACH.

One of the questions I am most often asked is how we can make commercial spot production so affordable to small business? I say it is simple. “We take a no Frills approach to it”. Now I know there are some currently scratching their heads wondering what that means and asking themselves if that means we skimp on quality or […]

IN PERSON vs. VOICE OVER TALENT EXPENSES: WHICH IS REALLY BETTER?

Many don’t realize that you don’t always need a famous face to make a significant impact on your target market or existing customer base. “Sometimes, a familiar voice can have the same or even greater impact”. O.K. yes, I’ll admit that having Morgan Freeman or James Earl Jones read that and offer it as an audible would have better made […]

Can my Business really afford a commercial?

I really wish I had a dollar for each time I have had this question posed to me. Many don’t understand the impact such a device can have in modern society. We have never been a more visually oriented society than we are at this moment in time. Today’s consumer is more informed than ever before and they want it […]

A COMMITMENT TO MORE TIMELY UPDATING

As 2016 kicks off it has come to my attention that we need to be more timely in our updating of the materials and such that we use to connect with both clients and potential clients alike. While there’s no real excuse that covers it completely, I want to qualify it by admitting that I tend to get caught up […]

S.C.U.B.A. training on us? OK!

One question we are often asked is “?”  In the past the answer has always been “Not up front, but we will give you additional paid work for obtaining it.” Now, that will no longer be the case. Beginning November 1, 2014 MMP Studios will offer payment for  Basic Open Water SCUBA certification  to all On-Camera Talent who do not […]

Retaining focus…

Recently, I was asked where I saw this company in ten years. I realize that many people ask questions like this a lot and you are supposed to be able to give some dynamic answer that reflects a combination of both your personal goals  and those of your business but to be honest, I didn’t know. It took me a […]

The holidays are here!

  Yes, the holiday season is upon us and for this company that means I and the rest of the MVD want to thank one and all for making this a great year. We have had some serious challenges throughout the past 11 months but it has all proven to be worth it. We have seen some steady advances in […]

Make it count.

Make it count.

Many of the smaller businesses we work with  want us to “make it count” as we begin to discuss working together . They are of course (in most cases anyway ) referring to the commercial spot advertisement we are producing for them. The goal being maximum impact with minimal cost. Gone are the days when big airtime schedules were needed to provide this.  […]

Are we limiting our scope?

Are we limiting our scope?

For a few months now, the focus has been looking inward to local businesses for commercial spot production. We began this after being asked by some friends and colleagues why “They see our work all over the bigger areas but never saw any of our stuff here in the local area?” because this is, after all where we live. So […]
