Prodigi Arts is looking for a creative director who can lead teams and astonish audiences. As a production house that seeks to become a leader in the visual arts community, we are looking for a talented individual who can bring their extensive knowledge and expertise in the areas of animation, design and motion graphics to our doors.
This week the GMC decided to look back to that feature and offer an update to its readers on these companies and where they are in the new year. While we have expanded in size and scope of work, we have also had the rare opportunity to work with three of the companies that made appearances on that list in various capacities ranging from educational career initiatives to a stunning gala that took an audience inside the most important messages of a transformational brand.
Leadership comes in many shapes, sizes and age groups. At least that's what we learned through our most recent project with the community development superstars over at Leadership Memphis.
A couple weeks ago the Greater Memphis Chamber published a press release that forecasted ten companies to watch for in 2014, based on those who made great strides this past year and show great promise in the next. When we heard the news we were, well, a little excited. As a boutique creative studio taking up residence in downtown Memphis, we feel flattered to be nominated alongside organizations like International Paper and the Regional Medical Center, which both have the kind of reputation and accomplishments that we would like to have someday.
Change doesn’t come overnight, or even a few nights. But it does come; and organizations like the Memphis Urban League of Young Professionals and Leadership Memphis are making it happen. Over the past year we have had the fine opportunity to support a couple of Memphis’ most ambitious and hard-working organizations that are working to change their communities and transform the city in relevant and lasting ways. Their legacies and work in this city have woven a unique story; and boy do we love telling a good story.
Memphis Urban League of Young Professionals
A couple months ago we had the chance to film the MULYP’s 2013 Empowerment Conference with guest speaker Aaron Arnold, CEO of Music is My Business. This all day conference centered around educating and empowering young professionals through seminars and insights offered by seasoned professionals in their various fields, who attested to what it takes to find success in today’s world. Prodigi Principal Chris O’ Conner even spoke on one of these panels alongside Aaron as a matter of fact, and gave some insight into the marketing and branding knowledge he’s gleaned from his own journey leading Prodigi Arts. You can read the Tri-State Defender’s recap of the event here
Feel compelled to join? We hoped that would happen.
Every year professional and community development organization Leadership Memphis brings together some of the city’s most influential leaders to view Memphis through a different lens, and expose them to all the incredible work that goes on everyday. The 2013-2014 Executive Class kicked off with a three day tour and orientation, where we captured class members in action as they climbed rock walls, built Kinect sets from memory, and took a tour of the world-class Orpheum Theater.
Below are some stills from our shoot. Check back later to see it come to life. or better yet, enroll today!
This past weekend one of our fine animators was featured in the Horn Island 29 Reception at the Memphis College of Art, in debut of his collection entitled "Our Robot Shells."
In celebration of our recent re branding as a creative production agency, we are opening our doors for this one night to introduce our new vision and direction as a company, along with a commemorative ribbon cutting by the Greater Memphis Chamber.
Over the past year, we've had some wonderful publicity in the city of Memphis and beyond, as our projects have increasingly become more elaborate and diverse. As a growing studio, we truly appreciate the exposure that we've been given by these media outlets, and hope to continue to offer both great visual and textual contributions whenever it's needed.
As you might guess from the new logo and website, we have begun the intensive and integrated process of re branding Prodigi Arts. After many, many months of industry research and analysis of the mid-south region we are changing our language and messaging to better align with the direction we are headed as a company.
These past couple of months we have been joined by Martin Englert from the Memphis College of Art, and SCAD senior Amber Huang. Both have been studying the fine art of computer animation, and have lent their skills and talents to some of Prodigi's productions.
