Welcome To The New Accent Media Blog!!

As we close the month of August, Accent Media puts 2 major milestones behind us. First we have now officially celebrated our 4th anniversary of doing business, and second, we have moved into our new location in Downtown Youngstown.

Charles, "Chip," Atkins, never realized that four years ago in August of 2003, that his decision to go out and create his own company to shoot and edit video in the Mahoning Valley, would become the business it has today. After operating alone for almost the first two years, the company enters it's fifth year of doing business with 7 employee's and we will be hiring 2 Interns in the next month, and hopefully 2 more employee's by years end.

On August 16th, Accent Media held an Open House to tour our brand new facilities in Youngstown. Over 180 people came and were quite impressed with the new office space, the new shooting and sound rooms, and the 2,000 additional square footage available for the company to continue to grow. Complimentary refreshments were provided by area restaurants and food establishments including; Super Suppers, B&O Railroad Banquet Hall, The Mocha House, Edible Arrangements, Pascarella's Italian Restaurant and GFS Marketplace in Boardman. The Coca Cola Company of Youngstown provided the complimentary soda's and bottled water. Beautiful floral arrangements were provided by Edwards Florist of Youngstown. Visitors each got their own goodie bag full of area businesses flyers and promotional items. Over a dozen door prizes were handed out, including prizes from; Casals De Spa and Salon, Komara's Jewelers, Mary Jo Maluso and Rick Blackson, Mary Kay Cosmetics, The Steelhounds, The Scrappers, Tickets for the Chevrolet Centre, Doc's Deer Scents, Cafe Cimmento, Buffalo Wild Wings, TGI Fridays, The Youngstown Sports Grille, The Olive Garden, Smokey Bones Restaurant, The Agent Insurers, GFS Marketplace and more. Anyone requesting a tour of the new facility can contact Sales and Marketing Director, Scott Fullerton, at 330-744-2268.

For the first time, Accent Media has it's own shooting space that includes a huge green screen and psych-wall, a travelling green screen wall, a portable product size pysch wall, and rooms that will accomodate focus groups, web and podcasting of meetings, full studio productions, and much more. Along with our professional multi-camera systems that are "Hi-Definition" capable, we have consistently bought new and improved equipment so we can offer Dolly and Track Shooting, Jib Shooting up to 12 feet, and many other innovations.

The Accent Media website is still going thru renovations, but is almost complete, and you can go there to review some of our demo disks, and information about what we do, and how we do it, along with contact information for the entire team. We really enjoy interacting with the community, and are looking forward to meeting and working with our neighbors here in Downtown Youngstown, and throughout the Mahoning Valley and beyond. This new blogsite will be updated often, and please contact us with any questions or comments you have about our company. Most questions should be directed to Scott Fullerton, Director of Sales and Marketing, and you will recieve a response within 1-3 business days. Thanx for helping Accent Media celebrate our 4th Anniversary, and new location, we look forward to serving you.
