Greetings Tall Taurusites,
Since opening our doors and all these years of providing multimedia, this is our first newletter. Thanks to all who show interest in Tall Taurus Media and subscribed to the letter.
Some of you have been with me since the beginning, but for those who have just climbed aboard, a little history.
Ever since I was a little tike, I had always wanted to do something artistic or perform. At 10 years old I wrote strories in a notepad and read SC-FI novels. Through the years of growing up and trying to find my calling, I collected comic books and was a die-hard fan of movies. In high school I was attracted to illustrating and cartooning which I did for the first three years. In my senior year I took commercial art and photography. I was still not quite satisfied with what I wanted to do with my life artistically but I always felt it was my destiny. Graduating in ’87, I was still quite lost in what I wanted to do.
One night I was watching HBO and was exposed to a film by David Lynch. Blue Velvet, a crazy, sublime rollercoaster of a film. I had never seen a film like it before and as the rolling credits scrolled upward, something clicked. I thought to myself, “I love film…. I’m a stroyteller… this is what I want to do!”
Fast forwarding to now I had gone to film school to learn production management and get hands on training with equipment.
In 1997, after graduating from the University of Washington Film Extension Program, I wrote, produced and directed my first feature called the Temporaries. In the year 1999 I made another film called Missing Chelsea. In 2000 I opened my company which was called Studio H Filmworks. Studio H’s first gig was doing a family’s memorial video for a husband and wife who died of old age together. A little depressing, but a great experience. Following, were jobs for the American Diabetes Association and several weddings.
Years went by and built a healthy portfolio through word of mouth. In 2005, I finished my third feature called Customer 152 which became official selection in the New york International Indepepndent Film Festival and won Best Feature in 2006 at the Northwest Projections Film Festival.
In late 2006, I decided to change the company name to a name more memorable and personal. I’m 6″7″ and I was born in the month of April. Hmmmmmmmmm…. Tall Taurus Media.
It is now 2008 and a lot is under the company’s belt. I now say “we” instead of “me” due to growth and anticipate a couple more “we’s” to join the club in the middle of the year. We are jumping toward new horizons with mutlimedia by providing digital signage, content delivery and ad sales.
It’s just the beginning…..
