So it’s been a while since the last blog. I promised myself I wouldn’t let this lag so much, but it’s so much easier to update folks on Facebook and Twitter. Does anyone even read these blogs?
Oh well. Anyways a lot has happened since the last blog. If you’re a fan of our Facebook page and you follow us there then you probably know that we now have office space! We signed a 1-year lease on a 1200 sq. ft. complex at 69 St. Michael St. in Downtown Mobile. It wasn’t where we wanted to be exactly, as we rather would’ve preferred being on Dauphin St. or just off Dauphin St. at a high traffic location, but the reality is we don’t really need foot traffic for our business. The other locations we were scouting didn’t pan out quite as we hoped, and we settled for the spot that is way off the beaten path… but we kind of like it that way now.
You see the big reason we wanted Dauphin St. space was because of the popular Artwalks. Being right there and participating would bring a lot of potential clients through our doors, and that would’ve been clutch. Unfortunately we couldn’t get that space so we settled on the St. Michael spot. Well, I shouldn’t say we “settled” for it… we are actually in love with the spot. The reason is because it’s literally around the corner form the Kangal Gallery, just off Royal Street, which is just a couple blocks away from The Host Gallery. Both of these locations are relatively new, which means more galleries are moving further towards our neck of the woods, so we decided this location would actually be very beneficial since we would sort of be moving in on the ground floor.
We’re going to do our damndest to promote this area of downtown for the Artwalks. We already have several ideas of what we can do ourselves to entice people to hoof it down to Royal Street, but alas we can’t do these yet. Why? Being open. We don’t have anything in there yet. Hell we don’t even have power yet, but the fact that we’re not open is primarily the reason…. yeah, that seems accurate.
We have however settled on a design theme of the office, but you’ll just have to come by and sneak a peek when we get it all finished to find out what it is. Will it be modern? Will it be geeky? Will it be like your Grandmother’s kitchen? You’ll never know….. well that’s not true, you will know eventually.
I’m gonna stop talking about that now! Moving on!
We attended the South Alabama football game a couple weeks ago on Halloween weekend. We had a blast! We took a lot of photos and video and plan to make a compilation video of the tailgating experience. We figured there was a enough action footage, but not enough fan footage. The South Alabama tailgating experience is pretty big, and a whole lot of fun. We had press passes waiting for us so we also got some really cool shots during the game and in the tunnels by the player locker rooms and all that. Overall it was a really fun experience.
We’ve obviously got a whole lot on our plates right now so it’s really exciting. We’ve got several websites lined up and even a couple of film projects on the horizon. Also, if you see us out and about be sure ot ask us for our business card! That’s right, we finally got some, haha.
Anyways, that’s all for now. This is probably one of the most poorly written blogs ever, and I apologize for that! Kind of in a rush, hope the update was sufficient! Thanks kiddos!
