We’ve decided to let our attorney, Ernie, do the first-post-of-the-year honors, so, take it away, ‘E’ – give us your best Opening Statements – unless you want to cut straight to the Closing Argument …
Thank you, Doris … Hello everyone … well, what can I say about this past year? Tough one … oh, hold on – I know: Have you ever wondered why pizza is round, comes in a square box and is eaten as triangles? Well, for me that sorta sums up 2020 … perhaps it’s a year best left in the past as we look to the future with confidence.
With the health, safety and well-being of our staff as our top priority and guiding light, we cancelled our traditional Holiday Party and annual New Year’s Eve Bash – no way to remain socially distant at those events so, no ‘Photo Booth’ pictures to share with you this year – but we did dig up some highlights from past events (see below) to keep the spirit and tradition alive.
On that note – here’s to 2021 – a year that will see many comebacks, as our industry turns the corner and begins to gear up for a hearty round of new production. And speaking of gearing up, it is, in fact, ‘Happy New Gear’ for many of our TV Production Rental Company friends who are enjoying the buying power of a new budget for a new year. As that gear arrives, remember that the innovators at Factory Optic are here to help – we excel at inventive behind-the-scenes technology design so, don’t forget to work us into your 2021 plans. There, I think I managed to get that somewhat shameless plug in there rather seamlessly. And legally.
All the best to you and yours as we embark upon a new journey together. Hope to see you soon, visiting our site, touring the Lab, having a quick bite at the Commissary and generally mingling with the Crew … and if I don’t see you on the Factory floor, I’ll see you in court!
