Burgeoning technologies require an outlaw zone. ~ William Gibson, Neuromancer
I'm Frank Colin and I've been swimming in the media stream my entire life...
My expertise and insight is in technology as well as the media and entertainment industries, giving me a unique perspective.
Throughout my career, I have been highly successful in guiding a number of organizations in their business development, marketing, knowledge management, product development, media relations, and social media strategy.
Though I can't program my way out of a paper bag, I've used computers for decades. I've been involved with video production since the Sony Porta Pak was released - the first portable reel-to-reel video tape recorder.
I founded the first company that marketed and distributed a variety of software productivity tools specifically designed for film and television production. I was midwife and later VP of Marketing and Product Development for Final Draft, world's #1-selling scriptwriting software.
I was "everything" except the developer for the automatic graphics processing tool DeBabelizer, much beloved by multimedia developers, games programmers, and artists worldwide. I've been told by many that it's time saving and ability to process 1,000's of files overnight saved many marriages/relationships.
My current clients include AddictScience, American Comedy Theme Park, CA Palm, FatRedCouch, First Light Design, GreatSexAfter40, iStunt, Michael Castleman, QTAKE•Invision, Radical.FM, Screentakes, Zavala Songs, Inc.
Gulture Enterprises has been my DBA since high school. The logo was originally a button from the '60s.
If I don't see live music at least once a week, I go through withdrawals.
