Since so many of you are trapped at home... Genesis Studios has a financial offer for anyone who is interested and willing to read 2 paragraphs.

As you all know, we’re in a tricky, challenging time. Advertising is often the first thing that businesses cut to save money. However, companies that continue to promote themselves during a recession actually GAIN market share. BUT we also understand that money is a precious commodity at the moment, and we want to be helpful and respectful of businesses’ need to push forward cautiously.

So.... If you PERSONALLY know anyone who has a small business (or even not-so-small) anywhere in SC, and you would be willing to make a referral, we’ve got a special offer for them and will pay YOU a $250 commission for any project that moves forward (even AFTER the crisis settles). That’s all you have to do! BEFORE you reach out to anyone, please Messenger us so I can give you the details. I will give you a video link that you can send to your contact(s) that will explain everything. This won’t be a “hard sell” type of effort. It is really intended to have friends help Genesis Studios network through this crisis and be mutually beneficial for everyone involved.

Please message us and I’ll give you the very simple details.

Mungo Homes "Heart"

They say "home is where the heart is", but it's not always the "perfect" moments we cherish. Life is beautifully imperfect, and it's those moments we sought to capture in our latest spot for Mungo Homes. We are proud to still be working wtih this great organziation after 16 years of success together!

We're shooting a short film and need a motel location for an exterior shot and a room interior. Half day at the most. We're having trouble finding a location. If anybody has any thoughts or connections, please DM. Thanks!

Check out the page and the video, and book your haunted experience now! This is going to be unlike ANYTHING you've ever experienced!!!

The Trunk | Episode 3 | "Two Seconds"

Here it is! Finally! The latest episode of The Trunk--Genesis' own Twilight Zone-ish series. We also have our YouTube Channel set up for it so you can watch all three episodes.

The latest is 42 minutes long (so watch it on your lunch break or stream it at home now that your regular TV shows have ended for the season).

We were very fortunate to get Bill Oberst, Jr. as one of our two great actors. Bill has won an Emmy and appeared on Criminal Minds and about 200 other films/TV shows. Rob Sprankle and Bill go toe-to-toe in this psychological thriller that takes place in the middle of the deep woods with no one else around.

Please share the link if you enjoy it (or if you just like us!) and please subscribe to our channel.

Gambling. Embezzlement. Fraud. A string of bad decisions have brought Bill to the breaking point--standing alone deep within a remote forest, ready to end it...

Mungo Homes of Columbia acquired by Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary from Tennessee

When Genesis first began working with Mungo Homes in 2004, Mungo had never had a longstanding relationship with a creative agency for more than a few years at a time. Fourteen years later, we are proud to still call them a valued customer (and friends) and congratulate them on being acquired by Clayton Homes--a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffet's company!). The future is bright for Mungo Homes and we look forward to 14 more years contributing to Mungo's success!

Longtime Columbia homebuilder Mungo Homes of Columbia has been acquired by Clayton Properties of Tennessee. Mungo Homes, founded in 1954 by the late Michael Mungo, has developed numerous subdivisions in the Midlands.

AUGUST 28, 2008 - 10 Years Ago Today
This year is a milestone year for Genesis Studios on multiple levels. July was the 25th anniversary of our founding, and ten years ago this day, we opened the doors to the studio we occupy today--South Carolina’s largest private studio and creative facility.

The three days leading up to our official grand opening were interesting as well. We hosted South Carolina’s own The Firm exercise series as they inaugurated our studio for their Wave edition DVDs. There were 40 or so people (crew and talent), four cameras, about 50 lights on our grid, and a set that stretched from the bay door to our equipment room. It was quite a way to begin our journey in the new digs.

To make matters more interesting, those three days with The Firm were also the three hottest days on record that year. Back-to-back-to-back days of 103 degrees on the thermometer--and that doesn’t include the heat index. Our new air conditioners were no match for that much heat plus that many people exercising plus that many hot lights shining on them. We had to bring in a portable generator and a 15 ton portable AC unit to pump air into the studio in between takes. But we all survived.

But we almost didn’t survive the studio construction. Many of you know--but many of you don’t know--that the construction process nearly put us out of business. We hired an architect who recommended a contractor friend of his (who we hired), and they did a tag team ripoff job that turned a 6-month construction schedule into a 3-year nightmare--bled us of every spare dime we had. The contractor regularly went a week or two weeks without stepping foot on the job site, including one stretch where no work was done for an entire month. That month of no work still cost me over $5000 in interest to the bank. That’s kind of thing will make you want to pull your hair out. All I wanted was for them to do the work they were paid to do. I learned a great many things about the difference between good contractors and bad contractors during that time.

My team and I busted our tails to not let those crooks win. We would show up for work, take care of our clients, then change our clothes and paint or patch drywall or sand sheetrock or whatever it took to keep things moving forward. BTW--THAT’S the kind of team you have working for you if you hire Genesis for your marketing/media needs. Through hard work and most assuredly the grace of God, we survived the nightmare and the economic recession that began within days of our grand opening (sheesh!).

Today, we are proud to occupy a creative space unlike any other in South Carolina. We get to create, play, have fun, and help our clients be successful by doing what we love to do anyway. So, cheers to ten years here and hoping for many more--including the chance to work with YOU!

Why Genesis

25 YEARS! CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW, PLEASE!

Twenty five years ago this month, Genesis Studios was founded. At the time, the name was CQTV–founded by the late Ray Christy and a snot-nosed kid just out of college named Cliff Springs (Genesis CEO). After Ray’s passing, Cliff Springs changed the name to Genesis in 2003. If there’s one constant (other than Cliff) in the constantly changing life of Genesis, it’s creative growth. Our clients learned that they could depend on us, and that trust led them to involve us in an expanding array of services all nestled under one giant studio roof today.

While the personnel at Genesis has changed from time to time, the core sensibilities of our hardworking, creative goofballs never do. We enjoy what we do and insist that everyone who works with us has fun as well.

The two most common things we hear at Genesis are: “Wow, I didn’t know we had a place like this in S.C.” (when someone tours the studio for the first time) and “You are the most fun, efficient crew I’ve ever worked with!” When you hear those same comments over and over, it means we do our job well AND it means we may have been too humble over the years when it comes to tooting our own horns. Well, we’re tooting now!

We believe the best is yet to come. Some big projects are on the horizon that we are excited to share with you at the appropriate time.

In the meantime, give us a call. We’d love to work with you, and we KNOW you’ll love working with us!

The Midlands #1 workday BYOM smorgasbord extravaganza is in the books. Meatfest 2018 was cooking perfection--no meat spilled from the grill and nothing charred to a crisp. A beautiful day to be outside, a football, and lots of meat made the day another one to remember. It was so pretty outside, we held brainstorming sessions for two projects outdoors prior to the festivities. But we've decided MeatFest is too special to keep to ourselves any longer. Next year: clients are invited!
