Also from MPT: Steven J. Schupak, executive vice president and station manager, accepted the prestigious Mendez Award from the Maryland International Film Festival-Hagerstown. “The Mendez Award is awarded to someone who has succeeded and made a positive impact in the television and film industry, or has supported film and television and has given back to the community,” explained Film Festival Board of Directors President Nicole Houser.

Storyfarm recently wrapped a video project for Aims Community College in Greeley, Colorado. “Whenever a client hires us, we deliver WAY more than just one or two videos,” explains Storyfarm Partner Dan Gerlach. “With drum-tight planning, a single production effort can yield a ton of footage. Leaving very little of it on the cutting room floor, we can deliver additional cuts and versions of the main video (i.e., the thing we were initially contacted to make) that can be shared across more channels and platforms.

“Does it cost more than producing a one-off video? Yeah, but nowhere near what it’d be if we came out each time to make each deliverable,” Gerlach says.

Warschawski has promoted Carson Denbow to senior director. In her new role, Denbow will lead client relations and oversee the team in creating strategic integrated marketing campaigns that include PR, social media, email, advertising and digital marketing for the agency’s clients. Denbow also oversees the agency’s corporate communications and Assistant Associate Program (Warschawski’s internship program).
