This weekend is the biggest weekend ever with 57 recitals being shot and 39 on Sunday alone. Good luck to all the crews. This will be a record year between the dance competitions and dance recitals. All May shows have been edited and delivered. That in itself is a major feat. Great crew and great management. Thanks Guys.
It’s been an unbelievable season. Regina Harrigan has managed all 4 competition crews without a hiccup. She’s the best woman I’ve ever worked with!! Now onto recitals. Believe it or not over 11 dance studios ALL have their shows on June 8th. Holly Cow! But we’ve filled them all. This will be another record year with currently 103 dance studios from Florida to Vermont. Thank you staff. On the film front I’m putting the finishing touches on a few short films that will also be tied together. I think it’s a pretty good approach. Can’t say more until it’s copyrighted lol.
Things are running smoothly here. Performa 13 went fantastic and the holiday shows are in post. A few commercial spots lined up (mucho cash lol) Also setting up to shoot a few shorts. Recently purchases include NJ LIFE (in beach chairs) we now own the rights and equipment from that company. New direction? we’ll see. Keeping busy for sure. Enjoy the holidays and have a very happy New Year from us at Sharpshooter Productions.
We’ll we’ve been quite busy here. Wrapping a record setting competition and recital season both in sales and units delivered. Our “Vidmail” was a huge success with over 300 videos directly emailed to customers. In October we wrapped on a music video for Billy J. Brown. A remake of white rabbit originally by Jefferson Starship. The video has received a lot of good press. If that’s not enough… For the month of November we’re one of a few companies selected to shoot “Performa 13” This is a month long arts festival happening all over Manhattan. We’re also involved with NJ LIFE (in beach chairs) an internet talk show with our president Joe Fortunato as host. Interviewing interesting and fascinating people in and around New Jersey. So yep, we’ve been really really busy. V.P. Regina Harrington has decided to forgo her return to her native Ireland and stay on with SVP. We couldn’t be happier. Now with a full staff we look forward to an even better 2014. But 2013 still has a few months to go and things keep growing…
Right now we have 4 different crews servicing 4 different dance competitions for 2013. If you’re looking here to order DVD’s just send us an email. We don’t accept credit cards you have to mail in your payment with your order.
