It has grown organically over the past 11 years and while things had to slow down in 2020, 2021 is proving to be a year full of creative endeavors and new media projects. With a background in Design and Marketing, Anne and her partner Jason Mundok have been working on a new media outlet called So Good Lancaster and are using the media studio to create all their content.
The pause of 2020 allowed us to assess our offerings at our coworking space and envision what reopening would look like for us, our community, and Lancaster. Pre-pandemic, we had opened a small media studio and worked on some in-house shows via a media collective we started with members. The pandemic has highlighted how important great video content and access to production resources are as people navigate going completely virtual and using video for awareness, engagement, and education.
Forward almost a year, and we’ve been working to develop a more robust facility. It’s been helpful to have one of our members, Stephen Stone of AsaPro, as a resource. He’s installed equipment and has been willing to consult with us on the best tools to meet our needs. This kind of collaboration and sharing of skills is what coworking at The Candy Factory is all about. Members love the new facility, and we’re impressed each day by the level of content being created from video to audio.
If you’re a coworking space looking to enhance your member experience, adding a media studio to your space is an intelligent move. If you’re in need of help with that process, reaching out to AsaPro is a great first step.
