We hire our first two employees.

We produce our first TV commercials for Broome County Board of Elections, Traditions at the Glen, W&W Nursery, and Oakdale Mall.

Maines Commercial

We are hired to produce a commercial in honor of the renaming of the Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena. This is one of our biggest productions, to date. The commercial is a huge success and we are honored by the American Advertising Federation.
