We know that Oregon’s film and video industry has grown over the past few years by leaps and bounds and the news today from the Portland Busniess Journal adds more proof to this fact. Next week PBJ is hosting a reception to honor their fastest growing companies in the region and Oregon City based production company Funnelbox is on the list. This is no great surprise as television commercial production accounted for over $20million of the reported $130million in spending in 2011. The number is most likely much higher than $20million but that’s the data we catch from the Greenlight Rebate program. If you haven’t been on the Funnelbox website and blog recently, be sure to check it out. They’re doing great work and the proof is in their reel!
Another company on the list worth noting is Elemental Technologies. Elemental receive last years Innovation in Media award at our annual meeting. While Elemental is deeply rooted in technology, they are quickly becoming the international leader in mobile video streaming solutions which will greatly impact the future film and video industry.
I’m sure there are even more film and video companies out there who should be on this list, but I’m guessing they’re a little shy. If you are a production company expanding and doing great work, don’t be afraid to let us know! And if you’re looking for work, be sure to keep an eye on those companies that are growing!
