Hello everyone and welcome to the latest installment of the McCartney Multimedia, Inc. newsletter!

This time around we'll be showcasing a whole new slew of products and services that we've been busy developing for our clients. We've also included some of our show highlights and featured client web sites.

Let's get started.


Video Production Services
A picture is worth a thousand words...
A video is worth a million… (Martin Nethercutt)

Video is important today and not just because of the sheer numbers of them, they allow brands to speak for themselves. Video elements create a cohesive brand message with voice over, music, brand images, animation and get a multimedia message across to the consumer in a very compact space and timeframe.

So, how many videos are there on YouTube? Google says they are over 120 billion now. Moreover 200,000 videos are uploaded daily by 300,000 users.

How to stand out from the crowd?

At McCartney Multimedia, we've been busy devising ways for our clients to effectively communicate with their current and potential customers. From the early days of Powerpoint presentations, (because the internet wasn’t prepared for video or streaming content,) we've watched this evolution take place. Today, we offer a wide variety of video messaging solutions for web sites, commercial TV, streaming or simple presentation use.

On The Road Again!


Liverpool Legends with special guests Angie and Ruth McCartney performing at the Arcada Theatre, St. Charles, IL 04-28-2017

Just 40 minutes west of Chicago is the beautiful little town of St. Charles where the Liverpool Legends were playing a show with special guests Ruth and Angie McCartney at the historic Arcada Theatre.
The venue was established in the 1920's and has all the charms of the Gatsby era gone by. Refurbished by Ron Onesti, the Arcada is a true gem in the world of performance halls and theatres.
The show itself was a "must see" for all serious Beatles fans, for not only was the audience taken back to the Beatle days with music and multimedia video by the Liverpool Legends, but also enjoyed the precious stories behind the songs from the personal memories of Angie and Ruth McCartney.

From "Yesterday", "Blackbird", "Hey Jude" and "Golden Slumbers", to the break up of the Beatles in 1969, the ladies held nothing back and shared their insights and stories with an appreciative audience. Meanwhile, upstairs in the newly launched speakeasy, replete with flapper girls and a private collection of crystal, antiques, Victrolas, shoe-shine stand and furniture worthy of a museum, the dinner and cocktail crowd enjoyed a jazz show from our uber-talented friend Antonia Bennett and her band.
Thank you Ron Onesti (the PT Barnum of the 21st Century), and your fabulous crew, we will be back for more for sure! Click the images for more info.

Introducing: South Bay Helicopter
 

South Bay Helicopter - Committed to Excellence

From their web site:
South Bay Helicopter Service, Inc. was established in April 1997, to service corporate transportation needs. Since then, South Bay has evolved into a full service charter company. With the purchase of the AS-350B Astar helicopter the company began expanding into aerial filming activities to include major motion pictures, television commercials, music and corporate videos, and still photography.

With the addition of an Agusta 109C, South Bay began it's helicopter IFR (instrument flight rules) program. South Bay is the only local charter company that is certified by the FAA to fly in low weather conditions as the airlines do. In November 2004, South Bay purchased a new Agusta A109E Power. This gave South Bay an increase in capabilities with increased performance.
In June 2008, we added our current Agusta A109S Grand, this further increased our capabilities, and added extra passenger comfort. South Bay is a premier provider for helicopter services and has an excellent record and reputation.
