    Way back in 1996 at the beginning of the month of June, the city of Atlanta was gearing up for the Summer Olympics, the price of gas averaged $1.16 per gallon, and Full Effect Productions (then known as Kiel Pro Video) opened its doors.   Hard to believe it's been 19 years!


    We'd like to thank all of our customers and everyone who has supported us over the years. We look forward to many more years of service, and we will begin the planning process soon for the 20-Year Anniversary bash to take place next year at this time!


    The Orange City Tulip Festival is a premier event and tourist attraction in Northwest Iowa.  It takes place every year in May, and this year was the 75th Anniversary.  We are producing a video about the festival that will be featured in the brand new Staadcentrum in downtown Orange City.  This Dutch-themed museum houses a Dutch Street Organ that is more than 100 years old, as well as a pair of machines that are used to make authentic Klompen, or wooden shoes. It's been a pleasure to work on this project and learn all about the Dutch Heritage of Orange City, Iowa!


    Has your company been faced with putting together a Request For Proposal, possibly for a government entity or large purchasing group?  Recently, one of our clients was faced with putting together such a proposal, and they decided to include a video. The video introduced the company and the people the requesting organization would work with on the project.  Imagine the impact the video had on those considering the proposals as they poured through pages and pages of printed material.  Video didn't replace what was required for printed material, but it was a great way to differentiate their company and provide a personal message only video can deliver!
