PLUS: “Pure Imagination” to show at Prometheus Film Festival
Media Boomtown is proud to announce that it has partnered with Clear Channel Communications to provide video support to their new “Loft” performance space as well as other video efforts.
The ongoing relationship was established in May 2010, when Media Boomtown began streaming and recording several live performances for stations across the Harrisburg Clear Channel family. Performances have included: Lifehouse (WRVV/WHKF), Boys Like Girls (WHKF), Gloriana (Bob 94.9), blues guitarist Chris Thomas King (WRVV) and local favorite Shea Quinn (WRVV).
Glenn Hamilton, Music Director for the River 97.3 said, “We are really excited about our new performance studio, The Loft and our partnership with Media Boomtown. They are taking the video and audio of our unique performances to a truly professional level. Stay tuned!”
Ed Fox, Co-Owner/Producer at Media Boomtown, echoed this enthusiasm. “We really have a DIY attitude, so it’s wonderful to help build up this space in a real grass roots way. We’re excited to be providing a level of polish to make the Loft appearances worthy of Clear Channel Communications: the largest radio group in the country.”
The Loft, which is the first performance studio of it’s kind in Central PA, will host its next event on August 13th, as Harrisburg’s own Greatest Funeral Ever takes the stage around Noon. This, along with past performances, can be seen on the River’s website.
Media Boomtown is also proud to announce that the company’s debut documentary “Pure Imagination: The Secret of Comics Creation” will be a part of the first annual Prometheus Film Festival to be held in York, PA during the annual York Arts Fest, August 27th & 28th.
“Pure Imagination” has been well received by folks in and around the comics community, including Garfield Creator Jim Davis.
Davis said that, “Creating a comic strip requires perseverance, determination, and imagination. It would have been nice to have seen a video like Pure Imagination, The Secrets of Comics Creation when I was young. Hopefully this video will inspire others to explore and develop an interest in comics and graphic novels.”
“This film was designed to help kids reach their potential creatively,” says Dan Almoney, Co-Owner/Producer for Media Boomtown, “but there are lessons that are universal and it’s great that there’s an outlet locally where more people will be exposed to our film.”
Additionally, after handling several projects for Capital Blue Cross, Corporate Communications Director Joe Butera offered high praise for the staff at Media Boomtown:
“The creativity and quality produced by this company is exemplary. To top it off, (they) provide top-notch customer service. They are attentive to customer needs, flexible with their work and quick to finish a product. If you have a video project, no matter how large or small, your first call should be to Media Boomtown.”
Media Boomtown, LLC is a Harrisburg-based video production company. Their mission is to offer great video at an affordable price.
“Pure Imagination: The Secrets of Comics Creation” is currently available for purchase on Amazon and through the Media Boomtown website.
