20 years! Foley Video Productions, Inc. has been in business twenty years!
Amazing. Twenty years is a long time for ANY business to be around these days – especially a video company. In the past two decades I’ve seen dozens and dozens of production outfits in this area come and go. So many I have honestly lost count. Why am I still surviving and thriving? Who can tell. Dumb luck, maybe. Or maybe I’m doing something right. I’d like to think it’s that – but lots of people do things right and still don’t make it. I guess I just rolled the dice and won.
Whatever the reason, I’m glad I’m still here. It has certainly been a long (and often strange) trip. When Foley Video opened in 1995, the production world – and world in general- was quite a different place. In those days the equipment needed to do this job was large, heavy, and very expensive. Analog tape was still king – digital tools were only in their infancy. There was no video on the web. Indeed – there was barely even an internet at that point.
Flash forward to 2015 – so many changes – too many to list. Somehow we at Foley Video have managed to keep up with the flood of new technology – even if we don’t always totally understand it.
Where will we be in another 20 years? Hopefully right here – creating content in new ways for new applications. Stick around, won’t you? This will be fun!
