Postmodern Company Celebrates Their 20th Anniversary By Throwing a Fundraiser Gala!
On October 20, 2012 Postmodern Company (PMC), led by David Emrich, President of Postmodern as well as historian and author of Hollywood, Colorado, a history of filmmaking in Colorado in the early 20th century, roared into its twenties by hosting over 200 clients, colleagues and friends for a night of 1920's themed festivities. This year, PMC celebrated 10 years in the RiNo Art District, and 20 years serving the Denver creative community. In conjunction with the party, PMC held a silent auction that raised over $2,000 for the Colfax Community Network, and guests donated a substantial amount of crafts and education supplies to the Resource Area For Teaching (R.A.F.T.) organization.
Emrich described the evening as a great success, and noted “I am thrilled to celebrate this occasion with all the great people involved in this industry! We could not have accomplished this with out the tremendous efforts of our team, partners and clients.”
Emrich, an industry veteran, founded PMC in 1992. A second-generation film professional and third-generation Denver native, Emrich followed in his father's footsteps through the backdoor of the film business. His father, Paul Emrich, a 40 year film sound-man, was a decades long fixture at Western Cine, a film lab in Denver.
Since 1992, PMC has evolved into a one-of-kind partner for agencies and corporate marketing departments in the Denver region. “Under one roof, we provide our clients with creative production, editorial, color, motion design, sound, and radio. Additionally, we’ve expanded our offerings to include a robust content management and distribution platform called Postmodern Labs” Emrich notes. This arrangement provides clients with tremendous efficiencies in time and money.
PMC has worked with clients on commercials, web video campaigns, documentaries interactive media and feature films. It is this diversity that allows the company to thrive in a competitive production and post-production world. The company works on more than 100 projects a year with clients such as JWT, Bellco Credit Union, Redstone College, the National Science Foundation and Bechtel, among many others.
Emrich and the team have built up a large clientele in Colorado, much like Hollywood built itself -- through film connections and developing a name in the business. In the spirit of increasing the value provided to clients, Emrich recently hired Director of Commercial Business Development, Dave Momper and several tenured producers, including Ben Seymour, to help with the company's expansion.
With the recent passing of Colorado Film Incentive bill, HB12-1286, Emrich admits to having a very big vision for film in Colorado – re-establishing the state as a national production and post-production front-runner and Denver as a prominent city in the film industry. "Denver is a brilliant city," Emrich said. "My mission, in a way, is to get people to realize there is a rich pool of technical ability here for making and editing films." After all, historically, Colorado was making films 10 years before Hollywood existed.
