Featured Business of the Month
Dave Figenshu Digital Media
I got my first movie camera when I was 10 years old... 50 feet of 8mm film recorded about 3.5 minutes of footage. I would film family, school projects and fun with friends. The process took time. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1978 from Temple University. Now, it was time to get a job!
During my first 20 years, I was involved in every kind of ‘live’ television event. I was traveling the country as well as providing support to some of the biggest productions for regional, national, and world wide audiences. I had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in show business, the sports world, entertainment and music.
In 1982, I bought my first home video camera. I began to create my own style of ‘special event’ videos. In addition to my broadcast work, I would record wedding videos on weekends. . . the ultimate ‘live’ event.
Technology continued to evolved so quickly; cameras, editing and delivery systems were becoming more advanced and affordable. Social media access gave me a place to display my work, but, I still needed to pay the bills.
Becoming a ‘Director of Photography' gave me a lot of exposure, access to traditional broadcast, satellite and cable, but it added increased responsibility. When my wife and I relocated to Carbon County from the Philly suburbs, I immediately sought out businesses that could utilize my services.
I connected with the Carbon Chamber as an outlet for work and additional opportunity. Working closer to home with local and regional businesses, while still retaining my national broadcast exposure, was a big benefit.
Currently I provide Director of Photography services for two regional and nationally syndicated cooking shows through Philly agency, Hype 413inc. I support the Chamber and Jack Frost / Big Boulder ski areas with regular programming for websites, display, staff training and commercial usage. And it’s still fun!
