KEC MediaWorks Intro: Make Your Message Sizzle!

Well, here at Stuart Jones Media, we've been busy!  So busy, in fact, that I haven't been able to update the project blog with the plethora of new projects that have been consuming all of my time!  It's a good problem, but a problem nonetheless.  So...my goal for this week is to catch up!  I am going to publish one new blog post every day this week, each one featuring some of my work over the past couple months.  

So to get us started, check out this new video I just produced for the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center's Mediaworks Demo Day--it's sure to get you pumped for a week full of blogging!

(Special thanks to Nick Hollensbe for adding the incredible 3D Motion Graphics and Compositing to this video.)

I was fortunate enough this summer to be invited to attend Knoxville Tennessee's first digital media start-up incubator program, called MediaWorks.  MediaWorks is a 3 month intensive at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center (KEC) where entrepreneurs with start-up ideas--specifically in the field of digital media--receive training from seasoned professionals, mentorship from industry leaders, and exposure potential investors.  It was an incredible opportunity.

The grand finale of this 3 month sprint is called "Demo Day."  It's the evening where all the entrepreneurs present their ideas, on-stage, to a room full of investors and other super savvy entrepreneurial-minded individuals from all over East Tennessee.  Yep, no pressure.  

Preparing to present that night was intense enough, but to make things even more exciting, I was commissioned to produce this video to kick the night off with a bang.  Ultimately, the goal was two-fold:  to powerfully show off some facts and figures related to Knoxville's little-known worldwide digital media presence, and to get everybody in the room completely pumped up for the night.  If you were there that night, you know--it accomplished both!  

Take a look at the video and see for yourself--this is how you make your message sizzle!
