52 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 15 - August 21, 1997 Cornerstone Media expands state-of-art facilities Accounting By Dennis Forney There are days in Sussex Coun- ty when farmers cultivate dusty rows of soybeans with roaring diesel tractors beneath a blaring sun within a mile of rock and roll bands recording national caliber videos in a high-ceilinged black studio under yellow, green and red lights. "We're in a great position," said Rick Greenberg of Cornerstone Media Productions Inc. "The combination of our state-of-the- art audio and video equipment in a rural area strategically located be- tween Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore allows us to pro- vide national caliber services and products at a tremendous value." Thc world inside Cornerstone's facility on Bramhall Lane in Georgetown differs vastly from the gardens, garage shops, and small backyards of neighboring properties. Banks of computer screens and keyboards line a glass wall facing an eighteen foot tall room where $25,000 digital cam- eras roll along stainless steel tracks. The camera bodies, micro- phones and metal tri-pods reflect light from dozens of fixtures mounted around the windowless room. Scenes and sounds for everything from live music videos to commercials for car dealerships join as electrical impulses in a maze of black wires channeled to the computers before they're edit- ed and professionally packaged for broadcast over radio, televi- sion and the Internet. "We've invested heavily in dig- ital equipment which allows us to use lighter devices, gives us more control over imaging, and allows us to provide more production flexibility for the dollar," said Greenberg. Cornerstone's technical direc- tor, Stephen King, added that the digital equipment integrates di- rectly with the computer world. "'With digital recording, we have total control from concept to com- pletion for everything from jingles to commercials to infomercials to web sites. Videos on web sites is an area that's developing rapidly and we've positioned ourselves to produce top-notch web site videos. Being digital gives us great flexibility with our clients for improved customer services without increasing costs." Cornerstone combines its ad- vanced digital equipment with a team including video producer Creig Twilley and audio producer Dominick Mammana. Twilley enjoys working in the studio with blue screens, lighting, and several switched cameras as well as tak- ing Cornerstone's mobile van for recording jobs such as the Michael Bolton concerts in Ocean City the past two summers. This year he's looking forward to do- ing work with national recording artists like Smashing Pumpkins and the Dave Matthews Band as part of Cornerstone's second se- ries of "Sessions" music shows. Mammana, with 15 years of ex- perience in recording and as a mu- sician and producer, noted that "bands from all the major cities in the Mid-Atlantic region have en- joyed our facility through 'Ses- sions.' The size and space in Cor- nerstone's facility makes the ideal Dennis Forney photo Members of the Cornerstone Media Productions crew, shown in the Bramhall Lane studio, include (l-r) Rick Green- berg, president; Matthew Greenberg, cameraman and grip; Creig Twilley, producer; and Stephen King, technical direc- tor. Millsboro Chamber to meet in Oak Orchard The Greater Millsboro Chamber of Commerce will hold its Thursday, Aug. 21 membership meeting at Oak Orchard Marina and Restaurant from 5 to 7 p.m. There will be no program and only a minimal business meeting and members are encouraged to attend. Tourism/Events vice-president Maryann Payne of Comfort Inn will act as host. Marina owners Clyde Hall and Joan Rudasill will serve finger foods, including both hot and cold selections. The chamber will provide complimentary beer and wine.

"Sessions" is a half hour live music program that will air for thirteen segments this fall be- tween September and December on ComCast, TCI and American cable systems. "We're the 0nly locally produced national caliber music show in the country," said Greenberg. "Our aim is to be- come the next American Band- stand by helping good groups get the recognition they deserve. Last year we focused primarily on groups from the east but this year we're expanding to the whole country. Eventually we'd like to syndicate the show for national distribution. It's hosted by BBW and Leslie Townsend and also of- fers sponsors an excellent oppor- tunity for exposure. Zildjan and Gibson want to be involved this year." Greenberg said Cornerstone's expanded facilities also add to the quality of other audio-video pro- ductions such as legal depositions, training videos and informational videos about schools and compa- nies.
