WELL, they say there are two golden rules in Media --and we Broke BOTH!
1) Whatever you say about me spell my name correctly!
2) Make sure the Link works—and leads to the correct URL!
And as the lovely Miss Crabtree said to Alfalfa, "You have to fix your mistakes!" (of course in his case that led to a series of funny misadventures!)
It's SCHULZE (no 't')
Our apologies to Mark Schulze who along with his partner, Patty Mooney has built San Diego's Crystal Pyramid Productions into a regional powerhouse. They do it all—award winning creative and top quality production services for every genre from documentaries to corporate and beyond. They cover all of Southern California from Palm Springs to LA to the Mexican Boarder with the best equipment and crews who know how to use it!
We not only misspelled Mark's NAME but we linked to some bogus pretenders with a similar name but lesser credentials. A double Mea Culpa! For the record, here is the Mark Schulze and Crystal Pyramid we know and love and who has been a major part of MCAI in San Diego for decades and now part of the San Diego Media Pros: Crystal Pyramid Productions
Mark Schulze, DP
UPDATE from St. Louis
Kitty Lasinski wrote to say that while she's not involved with the leadership of the local STL chapter, now calling themselves just MCA but they are still meeting regularly. she suggests we check on the MCA St. Louis Facebook page YAY! Maybe our next eNEWS newsletter will have som feedback from the former NE Ohio Chapter and the Ohio Valley Chapter! Stay Tuned!
We got some sad news from Karen Walker Rogers who was one of the founders of the Maryland ITVA Chapter many years ago. She is now a retired video professional and former President of ITVA (active in the international organization from the 1980’s until 2000) and currently known as Karen Walker Lowman,
Karen writes: "I wanted to inform you of the death of Tim Donovan, an ITVA member from Wisconsin who went on to become President of ITVA (the international organization) in 1987-1988. He was well known and well-liked. There is a wonderful tribute to him, written by his brother, on the Caring Bridge website."
Our condolences to Tim's Family. We're sure that all those who knew Tim will remember him fondly! He was just shy of his 66th birthday when he passed away on January 19, 2017. May he Rest in Peace.
ITVA and the MCAI were around for close to 50 years, thanks in large part to people like Tim and Karen. We are all grateful to those who take the reins of leadership and guide our organizations for the benefit of all. They are special and generous people!
