Hi There, Our company creates custom engaging animated presentation videos for businesses like yours to help increase your online exposures. Animated presentation videos help companies explain their products or services more efficiently to potential customers. Potential customers engage more when there’s a video presentation, most of us would rather watch a video that explains a product or a service than to read the content of a website to know what the offer is. I'm interested in creating an animated presentation video for your company to help increase your online exposure! Please reply back to this message and I will send you some of our animated video samples so you can see what I can do to help your business grow this year. Thank you, Steve S

I knew Gene quite well at the Academy, being a fellow Wisconsinite. Although now living in Texas, I usually spend some time in Door County and, not knowing he was in Wisconsin, regret not contacting him. He was a good man, RIP..
