Personal Work News
For those who don’t know, I work for/with my dad at Moore Multimedia, Inc. in Liverpool, NY. We provide audio/video support for live events of all sizes, produce promotional and capital campaign videos for a number of not-for-profit and religious organizations, design websites, offer training, and provide many other services to help our clients communicate their message more effectively.
Back in March, my dad and I sat down to have a heart-to-heart about the future of the company. It’s a very expensive business to be in to keep up with the ever-changing needs of clients and latest technologies. With the exception of some event work here and there when we brought in my brother – who used to work with us full-time – it’s been mainly a two-man show for the past few years.
In the end, we came to the decision that we would shut down as of the end of August.
My dad is going to continue pursuing his professional writing career and self-produce audiobooks and short stories, maybe do some screenwriting. My brother is buying off a chunk of the sound equipment to start his own live sound services company, “The SoundWorx.”
As for me, I am currently searching for the right fit! This is the first time since college that I’ve had to look for a job and I haven’t really been through the traditional application/interview process before. So it’s all a bit unnerving for me. Also, since graduating, Kim is looking for open art teacher positions right now. It’s freeing and exciting to know that we can really go anywhere (hopefully staying at least in the Northeast, if not in NY) but it’s stressful trying to figure out what’s next on both fronts at the same time.
As you may recall, I began setting up my online portfolio back in March and April and now have my updated resume there as well. I really couldn’t say anything about it then because we were waiting until we fulfilled some of our outstanding agreements before going public. But now that our conference season is over we’re working on transitioning our web hosing clients to a new provider, my brother’s new company is in talks to take over some of our live sound work, and word is being spread about our closure.
If any of you know of any positions or have any ideas that may help point me in a direction I may not have considered, please let me know either through the comments or email.
