Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
Craig Caryl, President of The Film and Music Company (FMC), announced this morning the unanimous decision to officially launch the company's website, http://www.thefmco.com , on Sunday - November 11, 2007 (11/11/07) at 11:07 a.m. PST. "We are thrilled to finally go live and be able to invite the world to share in this fascinating journey," says Mr. Caryl. "We at The Film and Music Company look forward to serving our clients in the film, television and advertising business sectors, worldwide, and we are off to a great start," he adds.
FMC, which officially opens for business concurrent with the launch of their website, has successfully secured pre-launch client projects including providing the custom score for the Paradigm Pictures film release, Bad Guys, as well as the original score for the theatrical trailer of the Lionsgate DVD release, Confessions of a Pit Fighter. FMC was also hired by Elder Health Resources of America to film and co-produce a documentary on raising awareness about aging and elder care issues in America which hit the road on September 24, 2007 as Dr. Marion boarded her converted 1966 Greyhound bus in New York City for her second national tour. In the news, national attention was awarded to FMC earlier last month for YouTube's HEINZ TOP THIS TV CHALLENGE for which FMC key staff member, Michael Thelin, entered the contest with his independent submission, HEINZ Always Sunnyside Up, a stop-motion animated commercial spot. HEINZ Always Sunnyside Up was chosen as one of four runners-up and the commercial spot was aired nationally on NBC's The Today Show.
