For those who have not had the opportunity to read our special page, here it is:
This year marks our 15th anniversary and we are proud to share it with everyone who made J-NIC Video Productions possible...it was a long road, beginning a video production business, which started with our Creative Consultant, Scott Gould, who suggested the idea. In January 1995, we began doing research and hit upon the idea of purchasing a franchise in International Video Yearbooks, based in Nashville TN...
After two seminars, we began the company; our first client was Carman-Ainsworth Jr. High School, first project was an orientation video for the incoming seventh graders. That fall, we signed three more: Flint Central H.S., Flint Northern H.S. and Flint Northwestern H.S. The most exciting part was signing the Flint Generals, who captured two Colonial Cups, in 1996 and 2000. After a long season and moving on from producing school videos, we decided to keep the company going, signing more clients.
There are so many folks we wish to thank, many to mention, so we'll condense it down. First and foremost, those from the INVY staff--Jim and Sandra McCarthy, Jim Bonds, Don Covington, and Charles Trent... The Flint Generals staff and team; Swartz Creek High School athletic department; Mott Community College athletic department; Michigan Admirals staff and team... Wedded couples including: Heather and Loren Austin, Marcy and Vance Palmer, Renee and Rick White, Lyn and Kevin Gannon, Kathy and Ricky McQuary, Deanna and Kurt Schwarz, Zoe and Paul Harris... The staff and students of the University of Michigan Flint... The students and instructors of the Flint School of Performing Arts and Dolores School of Dance...
Our past and present staff members deserve special thanks:
Nicole Young (my sister), Grady Purches, James Fritzler, Jane Schneider, Sue Skinner, Robbie Nichols, Joe Lussier, Kirk Tomlinson, Bryan Berkey, Megan Henry, my right hand man Dave Hanson and most of all, Scott Gould, without whose inspiration and dedication, J-NIC Video Productions would not have been possible. All have been instrumental in the creative process, whether it be filming, editing, directing, post-production, and keeping the business going...I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.
After 15 years, we've grown and matured...learned new techniques, signed many clients and customers, upgraded and re-tooled our studio...which will see more changes in years to come, stayed on the leading edge of new video production technology, and worked hard to stay in business. Thanks to everyone involved for 15 wonderful years and many more to come. Stay tuned...

Executive Producer, J-NIC Video Productions
