I am excited for the launch of this new website, and I want to thank Steve Martinez for all of his dedication and hard work. Cellar 13 Films has come to fruition, and has now become its own brand. Cellar 13 Films that was germinated during a conversation at a small coffee shop in Placerville, CA. This company’s first root’s were formed when we entered into a local film competition back in 2016. The film was called, “What if…You Had To Choose?” Our first undertaking wasn’t without its hiccups, but we prevailed. We received honorable mention at the Film Festival, and the film went on to be in four other film festivals both International and domestic. That film was the catalyst that sparked the Cellar 13 Films Brand.
Since then, we have put out four short films, all of which have had their own level of success. A year after we did our first 10×10 challenge, we fixed all of our past hiccups, and our film, “The Choice” won audience favorite. Our brand has grown, not only in size, but also in popularity. When branding Cellar 13 Films, we had a list of ideas that we wanted to do, but with each idea hatched, we needed to take baby steps before we could run. With that said, 2018 is going to be the launch of our re-branding, and the starting point to where we will begin out long marathon. We are setting small, medium and large goals for this year, and with the added talent that we have on staff, we know that without a doubt that we can accomplish everything that is on our list. As our company has grown out of our “beginner stage,” we are expanding so that we can not only look more professional, but to create a world-wide brand that will be noticeable.
Branding your company is one of the most important things that you can do. Without doing this properly, you will soon become complacent and stagnant, and that’s when dreams can start to fade away. When you set up a brand for your company, you are letting others know how they can identify you. With a good brand, people will instantaneously recognize not only who you are, but what you are about and what your company stands for. When most people think of a brand, their mind instantly goes to the word, “logo.” Well, your company (hopefully) is more than just a logo. Your brand says everything about your company, from how you deal with customer service, to what you look like (how you dress), to what your business cards look like. What do your marketing materials look like, how do you do your advertising? These are questions that you need to ask yourself when you are creating a brand for your company.
We are launching this new website, because we want our look to be more streamline and professional. We want people that come to our website to be able to navigate with ease, and we want all of the things that we have done in the past, and present projects to be on the for-front. Think of it like this, we were business casual, and now we are dressed in our tuxedo and ready for anything that comes our way. This new website has twenty two different updates than the last one had, and we will be adding more as the weeks roll by. Our brand is the most important thing to us, and we want everyone who deals with Cellar 13 Films, to have a stellar experience. We are on a mission of success, and I want to thank everyone on the Cellar 13 Films staff for helping out along the way.
