Greetings from the Ridge

Greetings from the Peeps at Pecan Ridge!

Posted on May 26, 2013 at 1:32 AM
Hello, everyone!
 
Here is the first post in our brand-new blog for our brand-new website for our business, Pecan Ridge Productions.  And here's part of the spot that earned the company its name. Our house sits on that ridge, in an old pecan orchard that was once part of what was my grandfather's, and then my daddy's farm here in eastern Butler County, Ala., some 12 miles from Greenville.
 
The location of Pecan Ridge Productions a video production company in eastern Butler County, Ala.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Pecan Ridge Productions isn't  quite brand-new--we've actually been producing videos for several months now.
 
You may have even seen us out and about with our video cameras, tripods and other paraphernalia at events such as the Butler County Relay For Life Beauty Pageant, The Greenville Area Arts Council's 2013 fundraiser, Putting on the Ritz, Miss Susan's School of Dance's Spring Recital or any of several graduation-related events at Fort Dale Academy.

PRP is actually a partnership between my husband, Benny Long, and Harry Manning, both of whom work at a Greenville area care dealership. Harry's been shooting videos for--well, decades, with hundreds, perhaps thousands of hours of footage of sporting events involving children and grandchildren. He's a very familiar face to the Fort Dale family.
 
Benny is a natural "techie" and has enjoyed videography as a hobby for several years. An earlier opening video he created for the GAAC fundraiser drew the attention of a Montgomery newspaper reporter and earned him an feature article in their paper. He's also produced television commercials for his dealership and shot and edited videos for class reunions, birthdays and holiday celebrations.

As for me, I serve as still photographer/videographer/fledgling editor and do PR, copy editing, typesetting and other tasks. I've been a photography enthusiastic since my teens and have a decade of photography and writing experience under my belt from my years as a print journalist. My background in art ed also helps me offer an "artistic eye."  Put us all together and I think we make a pretty talented team! :D
 
Modern technology is a wonderful thing and it allows us to snap photos with our phone and send to someone on the other side of the world in a drop of a hat. Now, as to whether the quality of said image is a "Keeper" is another thing entirely. And trying to shoot little Suzie's performance with your iPad or smartphone can just be downright awkward.
 
Our goal is take away the need for you, our client, to fumble with a viewfinder or looking at an LED screen, scrambling for buttons while the event you really just want to sit back and savor passes you by.  Let us do the work; you should be enjoying the moment! :D

We shoot with multiple cameras, offering a variety of views and angles; we give you professional editing services and offer little bonuses on our DVDs that make them extra special. We take pride in our work and love knowing we are helping capture special moments in our community.
 
As we like to say, "We make your memories last."
 
Please take the time to look around our web site. Yes, it's still a work in progress, but we appreciate you stopping in from time to time and leaving comments.
 
And if you've purchased DVDs from us in the past and were happy with our work, we'd really love it if you left us a little testimonial. Word of mouth really means a lot, you know.
 
Thanks! Until we meet again, y'all!

I have seen some of their work! They are fabulous! I just wish they were closer to Virginia. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a professional way to keep those moments you want to share. You get to enjoy the moment while it's happening and someone else gets to struggle with cameras, angles, and poses! Call them, you won't be disappointed.

Well worth all the effort you've put in--wish you all the best of luck (though I doubt you will need it, since your fans already know how amazing and talented you are!) Great website!

Dear Angie, all the best and good luck for your new adventure. Although it probably will not turn out to be a real adventure as your new business seems to be so well prepared and competently conducted.

It's a shame about the spinach, but better to stay away from it if it doesn't look right. Old spinach does NOT taste good. I'm looking forward to seeing your photo!
