Welcome to Markins Media!

Author: Mollie Markins

Hey everyone! Thanks for checking out our new website! We are so excited to finally have it up and running!

If you scan through the pages you will quickly get a pretty good idea of what services we provide. But I wanted to give you all a little bit of a background about how Markins Media came to be and why.

When I graduated from UNH Manchester in the summer of 2013 with a bachelors degree in Communication Arts I desperately wanted to work for a production company making films. But after taking a trip out to California with my sister the previous summer I quickly realized California was not a place I could live. About a month before graduation I was in a panic along with many of my friends who also had not lined up a job. I needed money to start throwing at my student loans but I was weary of just accepting any job that would pay me more than minimum wage.

Over the previous year I had been helping a friend of mine start up his own electronics repair business (shameless plug – check out KliQet for all your gadget repair needs! (we also do all of their marketing if you are looking for samples of our design skills)) and just as I was about to put my dream on pause, because of my lack of income and overwhelming increasing interest gaining on my loans, he convinced me start my own production company here in Southern NH. I quickly realized that video production services was severely lacking in New Hampshire area and that I had the skills to fill that gap!

So I immediately started working on business cards and flyers and in the process of that stumbled across a friend of mine who was helping out with the newly forming Manchester Food Coop. He asked me if I could help them make a Kickstarter video. I agreed and so my first video was created!

Since that first video we have received all of our future clients from word of mouth and the Markins Media name seems to be finding itself in the spotlight of many local New Hampshire businesses. We have been lucky enough to work with some amazing companies including Merrimack Valley Hospice, The Palace Theatre, The Applewood Learning Center and most recently The University of New Hampshire!

I can’t believe Markins Media has grown so much in just one year and there are so many people to thank! (excuse my mini oscar-esque speech) I would like to extend a genuine THANK YOU to all of the businesses, non profits, and individuals who have given Markins Media a chance.

I would like to thank my friends who have supported me the whole way and have put up with me showing up late (or not at all) to events and get togethers because I was in the middle of a long edit.

And finally I would like to thank my family for their constant encouragement and praise after each and every completed video!

Markins Media would not be where it is today without all of your help!

One a final note, I would like to extend a HUGE Thank You to JTN Graphics for their fabulous design work and attention to detail. They provided us with exactly what we were looking for in a website! If you have any designing needs I highly recommend checking them out!
