Twenty five years ago this month, Genesis Studios was founded. At the time, the name was CQTV–founded by the late Ray Christy and a snot-nosed kid just out of college named Cliff Springs (Genesis CEO). After Ray’s passing, Cliff Springs changed the name to Genesis in 2003. If there’s one constant (other than Cliff) in the constantly changing life of Genesis, it’s creative growth. Our clients learned that they could depend on us, and that trust led them to involve us in an expanding array of services all nestled under one giant studio roof today.
While the personnel at Genesis has changed from time to time, the core sensibilities of our hardworking, creative goofballs never do. We enjoy what we do and insist that everyone who works with us has fun as well.
The two most common things we hear at Genesis are: “Wow, I didn’t know we had a place like this in S.C.” (when someone tours the studio for the first time) and “You are the most fun, efficient crew I’ve ever worked with!” When you hear those same comments over and over, it means we do our job well AND it means we may have been too humble over the years when it comes to tooting our own horns. Well, we’re tooting now!
We believe the best is yet to come. Some big projects are on the horizon that we are excited to share with you at the appropriate time.
In the meantime, give us a call. We’d love to work with you, and we KNOW you’ll love working with us!
We have revamped the cyc lighting in Studio A to be fully fluorescent. We have smoother lighting, uses less power, won’t cook you under the hot lights, and is prelighted and ready to go! Special thanks to Landry Layson for his expert guidance!
When Northface Films first approached Genesis Studios about an independent, faith-based film, we were eager to help out any way we could. Producer/Director Frank Hutto was determined to use his $156,000 budget wisely to deliver a technically sound film that gave the impression of a bigger budgeted project.
Faith’s Song tells the story of a high school girl whose family is tragically killed and finds her life turned upside down. Former University of South Carolina football star Marcus Lattimore makes a poignant cameo.
Once the shooting was complete, Genesis was called upon to edit the promotional trailer and the finished film. A one-day screening was premiered for crew, family, and friends on October 29th. The powerful message was heard loud and clear, and Hutto hopes the film resonates with any viewer who can appreciate a story about overcoming life’s challenges.
Faith’s Song is evaluating several distribution offers, and should be available for wider release soon. Please visit FaithsSong.com for more information or view the trailer above.
