announcements for june


If you read that in a movie narrator-type voice, I applaud your dedication. As May draws to a close, I would like to reflect on what we've accomplished so far and also announce some of the great plans I have for the summer.

May was a stellar month of growth for Vid Monster. Not only did successful rebranding occur, new logos were also implemented, my social media has all been integrated, and I finally have a cost sheet available for clients. I was, at first, a bit afraid of implementing those changes so rapidly. In retrospect, they were a great success. I experienced a quick growth in interaction with potential clients and have many exciting plans for the summer that I doubt I would have had previously. Additionally, in the middle of that transition into the new Vid Monster outfit, I published a new demo reel with updated work. It can be seen below. I'm really proud of the synthesis of my work.

Now, this rebranding and new activism in finding work has been fueled partly by connections I have with Southbound 65. Through their manager's helpful promotion, I have been speaking with other up and coming artists about managing their media. I'm really excited to get to work with Braden Baugh, a talented singer-songwriter out of the Nashville area. And, as before, I'm beyond thrilled to work with Southbound 65 this summer as their media manager on tour! Additionally, I've made contact with the director of the World's Fastest Drummer competition and will begin doing promotional work with them and covering their event in July. But wait, there's more! If you took a look at my last short film with Cameron Carpenter called "A Stroll," I will be doing more work with the lead male actor Terrance. He is looking to produce a music video in July and I will part of coordinating, producing, and filming it. Summer is now looking better than ever.

So, thank you for reading this and keeping up to date with us. I'm really excited about all the work I get to do this summer; it's all thanks to the support I've been shown over the years. And now, here we are together.. on the cusp of taking Vid Monster to a place I never thought it would be. Thank you all. -SK

summer 2015

This summer is looking to be a super exciting one. I am proud to announce we will be touring with Southbound 65 this summer managing graphics, photo, and video production through their social media pages. We will also be handling the upcoming release of their EP, "K.E.R.D." available in the next couple weeks.  Follow us both on Facebook and on our respective websites for further details. An EP promotional video will be released soon. We also look forward to working with Michael Nachtigal, of September Productions, SB65's consultant. He has an incredible track record with artists such as Lionel Richie, Deep Purple, and the Who. What a great opportunity to combine my passion for music with my production abilities. 

Additionally, the Travel Journal series will be wrapped up shortly. As previously announced on the Facebook page, the final two editions of the series are: "Britannia," a wrap up of the last places I visited in the U.K, and "EspaƱa," coverage of my six days in Spain. At the end, all of the videos will be compiled into one compilation available on the Vid Monster YouTube channel. Traveling abroad was an amazing experience that opened my eyes to a lot of new ideas. Hopefully, these ideas will translate themselves into some cool new video concepts and short films in the future. 

I'm really excited to see new opportunities on the horizon. I plan on adding a new "Design" tab that will feature a lot of the graphic design and social media management work I have been spending my time creating. Also, I hope you all enjoy our new, more professional layout and logos. Thanks to all of you for the support you've constantly showed me throughout the years, even when I was just a dumb middle-schooler with a crappy camera who wanted to tell stories. Now I have the utility to continue telling stories and to help many other people share their own. Thank you. -SK
