Girls Night In

An online platform supporting women whose businesses shuttered due to the pandemic such as chefs, fitness instructors, makeup artists, mixologists, artists etc., launched this week. Girls Nite In Online (GNI) connects women virtually by hosting 30-minute online workout classes and workshops led by different women everyday. Classes will be donation-based through each presenter’s Venmo “Virtual Tip Jar.” GNI guarantees a stipend for all scheduled presenters. 100% of the donations are made directly to the workshop leader – GNI takes no fees from these donations.

“Our team is facilitating this experience as a free service with the sole intention of connecting women and supporting displaced female workers,” says Shelly Fisher, founder of GNI. “Since we can’t connect physically, it is important that we create new opportunities to connect virtually, support others, clear our minds, and learn something new.”

  • VIDEO PRODUCTION IN NEW YORKVIDEO PRODUCTION IN NEW YORK

    In recent years, there has been a large shift away from clients working with ad agencies and instead going directly to the production company. Why? Because it cuts out the middle man. This way the client can work directly with the business that provides the professional media videography needed to make successful marketing videos. Remember the “fee” the ad agencies tack on top of the work done. In some cases this can be a very large sum of money when its typically a percentage of the total spend. We aren’t talking thousands of dollars but hundreds of thousands to create truly great videos and media. Its not unheard of to have 6 figure budgets for these productions. As a client, going directly to the media production company allows that budget to go much further or to reach different market segments with media buys. SA STUDIOS and New York Video Production, has found some really good success with offering corporate marketing groups professional video capabilities the internal marketing business isn’t focused on or capable to pull off. Below is some of the latest video advertisements we have created.
