Tom MacKnight’s video career technically started in the early 80s when he and his partner came up with what they called “conceptual videos”. Although the idea, however, was never taken to broadcast, in 1984 music videos became a household word. In the early 90s, Tom worked closely with a film and video production company as director of marketing.
In 1994 when the internet was in its infancy, Tom started developing websites winning accolades and awards for his work. Tom’s work led to a partnership offer and after fulfilling his services developing a web presence for the company, Tom started working back on his video production incorporating the use of marketing rental properties with what are now called “Virtual Tours”. This was in 2001/02 prior to virtual walk-throughs becoming a mainstay in property marketing. Today these videos are commonplace and include drone footage as well as photos and videos.
In 2005, Tom started tmack Productions. In 2007 “Thunder on the Gulf” a one-hour documentary on the world of offshore racing was shot. Released in 2009/10 the documentary was the first of many documentaries including shorter corporate documentaries. Since then, tmack Productions have shot reality shows, commercials, corporate videos and moved back full circle to providing companies with creating a video presence on the web.
In 1995, Tom shifted his expertise to the Internet, realizing that the internet was going to be a game-changer in the business world. Working with a company that brought for the first time, the Internet into the Birmingham Alabama area, Tom assisted many companies in their transition to marketing on the Internet and developed many websites and web applications during this time.
Tom’s Internet applications brought him to a partnership with the Resort Guide of the Gulf Coast. It was during this time that Tom’s passion for video production once again became evident. Tom created what he dubbed “WebMercials” for his resort customers. This was prior to any video-sharing services such as YouTube. Tom created video streaming servers and placed WebMercials on the website. This quickly became a popular marketing product and since then Tom has shot over 100 resort commercials.
Today most produced video projects end up on the internet in one form or the other. Tom can assist you with your online distribution options.
