Digital Media Firm Expands in Metro Atlanta

Biscardi Creative to open new 6,000 sq-ft office in Gwinnett
Gwinnett County, Metro Atlanta, Georgia (July 1, 2010) – In partnership with Gwinnett Chamber economic development, Biscardi Creative Media (BCM) recently announced it will break ground on its new state-of-the-art-media-ready facility. After almost 20 years in the business, the company is expanding to a brand new 6,000 square foot facility in Buford.

Located in Buford, Georgia, this new building will feature eight edit suites, color enhancement suite, 5.1 surround mix suite, client theater, game room, kitchen, conference room, a 1,400 square foot multi-use room and over an acre of open wooded area for employees and their pets to roam.

“Our new facility will provide more convenience and the space needed as our business continues to grow,” said Walter Biscardi, Jr. Creative Genius of Biscardi Creative Media. “The property is in an ideal location, providing our team with access to a great quality of life environment near big-city amenities. Not to mention a relaxing alternative for our clients just a short drive north. You usually don’t find a facility situated on nearly 2 acres backing up to nature. We think we’ve found the perfect creative location and we’re thrilled to be staying in Buford and Gwinnett County.”

Recognized as a top professional in the world of media creation, Walter Biscardi, Jr., leads Biscardi Creative to not only meet, but exceed consumer expectations. Emmy-award winning programming, episodic television, commercials, feature films and corporate presentations are some of the projects Biscardi Media brings to the screen every day. Leading the way in High Definition, BCM supports all formats from DV to HD to RED 4k in-house. Since 1993, BCM has consistently achieved regional and national award-winning recognition, including five TELLY awards in 2008 for editing and production work in animation and over a dozen Emmy Awards in the company’s history.

Digital media is one of five targeted industries in Partnership Gwinnett, the community and economic development initiative led by the Gwinnett Chamber, to bring jobs and investment to the Greater Atlanta region. In April of this year, the Gwinnett Chamber released its first –ever digital entertainment white paper, touting the emerging mega-industry in metro Atlanta and the State of Georgia.

Nicole Wright, technology business development manager for the Gwinnett Chamber, said, “Biscardi’s expansion in Gwinnett adds tremendous value to an already stellar industry of digital media and application in Gwinnett and Georgia. It is both a testament and tribute to the claims of growth and sustainability that the white paper shares about this industry.”“Biscardi’s expansion is a classic example of the type of growth digital entertainment businesses can experience in Gwinnett,” commented Gwinnett County District Four Commissioner Kevin Kenerly. “And with technology being one of Partnership Gwinnett’s target industries, we consider this growth to more than just positive economic news; it’s a strategic win for our community’s long-term vision.”

“The City of Buford embraces this ‘creative class’ company, which fits in with the quality of life we strive to provide,” said Buford City Commission Chairman Philip Beard. “The momentum we’ve created in our historic downtown is spreading to other areas of the city. We’re happy they chose to locate here.”

The new Buford facility is projected to open by the end of November 2010. At present, the company is releasing its latest work, “Foul Water Fiery Serpent”, a feature documentary that chronicles Jimmy Carter and the Carter Center’s fight to eradicate Guinea worm disease. The film, produced by Biscardi Jr and Gary Strieker and narrated by Sigourney Weaver, is the first of three documentaries being edited at BCM.

Let me be the first to volunteer to assist you in your new facility ;-). After 10 years as Senior Editor at a boutique here in Vegas (and 30 years in the biz) I became another casualty of the economic slowdown here in Sin City. I have extensive long and short form experience. Since my being layed off I have augmented my skills by taking Steadicam workshops and seminars expanding my knowledge of Color, Soundtrack Pro and FCP Studio 3. My website http://www.hdshotsandcuts.com has some examples of my short form edit and graphics work. My apologies if this is not the correct forum, but I love what I do and want to get back to work.

PS I will email this to you as well.

I assume those tubes in the photo above will be for your internet access - if you recall, the internet is simply a series of tubes.




Yeah, it's old but the internet has never been explained better.

Seriously, best of luck - don't forget to build some closets - and a filtered water supply directly to the coffee maker.
