This week at Vidicom: Music from John in Production

This week at Vidicom we had a visit from our friends over at Purell!  They stopped in for a solo tour to showcase their products!  They were a thrill to have around and it was great to learn more about their amazing products.   Additionally, this week we are hearing from Vidicom's own: John!  John works on the production team and gets to be behind the scenes for all of our wonderful SMT's!  John is going to tell us about his week and what to look forward to next here at Vidicom!  John... the floor is yours!

Hi All! My name is John and I work in the production department here at Vidicom.  As mentioned the production and sales team had a great tour with Purell and really learned a lot plus got to the science behind this amazing product.  Though I was not apart of this particular shoot, my team told me all about it and said it went great!   As for me, I am working on our upcoming tours and very excited to see all the fun clients and talent that we have coming in.

Besides all the fun I am having at work, I was fortunate enough to go see one of my favorite rappers this weekend!   After work I went to go see a rapper named "Action Bronson" a rapper from Queens who has been becoming more and more popular.  Before Action was a rapper he was a cook and chef cooking up some great meals and dishes.  Now a days, he just cooks up sly rhymes and sweet beats.  He switched to rap after he broke his leg in the kitchen after slipping on a wet floor.  With all the downtime he had he was able to focus more on his art and found that he was not only good at this BUT it was something he really enjoyed.  His style is a little more unconventional that most rappers.  Instead of rapping about money, girls and cars, AB tends to focus on food and pop culture.  The concert was amazing and was everything that I dreamt of.  I am looking forward to his debut album to come out in March.

Next week, we will hear from our new intern Laquanna, who will be speaking on the upcoming Holiday....Valentine's Day and the fun SMT's we had this week!

Tales from Juno from Vidicom's Marketing Intern: Jeffery

Hi All!  We at Vidicom hope all our east cost friends have stayed warm and survived the great Juno storm and hope our west coast friends have been enjoying the warmth that we miss so dearly.  This week at Vidicom we have been preparing for all our great tours coming up in February and of course...Valentine's Day!  This week we hear from Jeffrey our Marketing intern who shares his Juno experience.  Jeff....what's your forecast!?

Hi all...my names Jeff and I am Vidicom's marketing intern assisting in a variety of tasks and making sure all the tours run smoothly!   As many of you know this week we were supposed to have a record breaking snow storm that was estimated at almost 2 feet of snow in NYC!  Of course, just to be prepared I stocked up on all the storm essentials (water, canned goods, and a good 6 pack ;) ). Though we were not as affected as our other friends on the east cost, I wanted to share my experience!  So, here I am at 8 PM on Monday night with my space themed onesie watching the snow, which at this point has slowed down.  I see about an inch and they estimated 5+ at this point.  At this point I assume that this snow storm is not all that it was cracked up to be in the NYC area.

We are now onto 10 PM and I am watching a movie in full burrito mode.  For those who don't know what that means its when you completely wrap yourself in your favorite blanket and look like a small burrito (extra rice for me please.)   So, out of the 2 feet we were supposed to get we got a total of 5 inches.  This was still enough for us to work from home in order to stay safe.  Since this was my first time doing this it felt funny to be making business calls and doing all my day-to-day activities from the comfort of my home and in my PJs!

I must say that we are lucky that we did not get it as bad as our other friends did across the east coast.  We hope everyone was safe and sound!
