FireRock Receives Four 2016 Emmy® Nominations!

Lehigh Valley Video Production
Continuing a great 2016 after six ADDY Awards in March!
"FOCUSED" has been the word around FireRock, lately... so much so that it has been just about a year since we last wrote a blog! We've been busy making videos and not writing blogs, but thanking the support system behind FireRock is extremely important to us... and being that six ADDY awards and another four Emmy® Nominations came our way this year, there are a lot of people to thank!

FireRock is not just about the people on the staff. It's about each and every person who contributes to a project! The FireRock culture requires everybody's best, and when industry professionals around the country say that our crew's "best" is worthy of being recognized, we hope a sense of pride and accomplishment fills the hearts of those we collaborated with!

"You are who you surround yourself with." We reiterate that quote often and believe in it wholeheartedly! The smoke and mirrors are oftentimes hard to avoid in the business community, but, for this small business, the genuine, caring, and passionate people we are so blessed to work with every day, who are responsible for the success and longevity of FireRock Productions, continue to lead us to light and opportunity. Clients, colleagues, friends... whatever they may start as... they quickly become family. Thank you to all of you for being the "rock" in FireRock!

2016 ADDY Award Winners

Without all of you - the incredible network of people supporting us in various capacities - we would not be able to do the work we do. And we certainly wouldn't have received the accolades that came our way the past few months, so "THANK YOU!" From the bottom of our hearts - the six ADDY awards and four Emmy® nominations we have received are dedicated to all of you!

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will present the 34th Annual Mid-Atlantic Emmy® Awards on Saturday, September 24th at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. It'll be a big FireRock family gathering!
