Our Story, Circa. 1994
VIDEO CENTER Media opened its door for business in1994 one year after owner Andy Small graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in video production. The business grew steadily and with a baby on the way we soon found ourselves looking to expand, with the goal of relocating closer to the downtown district of Iowa City.
Fortunately an old farm house with an unfinished barn came up for sale, just one block from downtown and we jumped at the opportunity! The remodel of the barn into a video studio took just over a year and in the summer of 1995, we hung the lucky horse shoe over the door, and we were officially open for business.
Early on most of our projects were "live" events such as weddings, performances, presenters, meetings, recitals, etc. We also provided a variety video transfer services including, home movies to DVD, photos, slides, VHS duplication and soon video to DVD. In just few short years we were creating original content for corporate, industrial, government, educational and commercial applications.
We are excited at the prospect of bringing our clients' ideas to life and the opportunity to use the latest techniques and tools to tell their stories in results-oriented ways. Since1994 we have filmed and edited hundreds of videos for businesses and organizations, filmed well over a thousand live events and have successfully archived the family media for over ten thousand individuals.
We would not be in business today if it were not for the support of the corridor business community and all individuals who have used our services and have recommended us over the years, THANK YOU!
