Creating a production company as a kid is no big deal when it's expected that you'd pursue any whim that pops into your head. However, sticking to that name and using it on all of your projects for 15 years seems worthy of noting. It's true that all of my film making ambitions began 15 years ago in February of 1997, when my first project, Ernie the Spaceman, opened with a Fandrix Productions credit made out of construction paper.
The evolution of a name (or a logo) was never the main focus, but it was always there in the background. As I got a bit older it just started to gain more meaning, like a common thread that linked all of my various movie related ambitions and experiments. I went into more detail about fandrix in a blog post I wrote a few years ago titled, Why Fandrix Productions?
So here I am at 27 years old, 15 years in to this journey, and the name has only become more deeply ingrained. Fandrix not only still introduces my videos, but now it's on my business cards and it's the location of my portfolio. The history is all too apparent as anyone who has seen one of my projects can claim they've witnessed part of the evolution - and I love that!
Below I've posted a video sampling of some of my opening banners over the last 15 years. Just as I've grown up in that time, so to has this name. Fandrix, more than ever, is symbolic of my persistence, my history, and my passion for film and video. As I said before, it's all a work in progress, but it doesn't hurt to take stock every now and then.
