In 2006, power couple Aimee and Chris Kurtz started building their ad agency in “the backstage of the world” in Lititz, PA . It has rapidly grown into the leading ad agency in multiple industries besides entertainment, including healthcare, automotive and even restaurants. The company makes use of social media marketing to build brands. This strategy has proven instrumental in the success of many artists and companies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chris Kurtz, a marketing genius, uses tools and techniques that he’s created to push the biggest brands in the world further in their respected industries. Now he’s here to share his knowledge with every business wanting to grow.
TMG have worked with the powerhouse brands like Feld Entertainment who put on shows such as Disney on Ice, Barnum & Bailey Circus, Monster Jam, Supercross, and Marvel Universe Live. TMG’s ad campaigns have resulted in sold out arenas across the country.
Recently, the couple launched The Virtual Talking Record Label (VTMC) where they are working on several large projects to produce music videos for iconic and top grossing artists like Sammy Hagar and the Circle. They are creating music videos and capturing live performances in 3D through the art of avatar creation, so that future generations will be afforded the unique opportunity to see artists from the past perform live.
The Virtual Talking Record Label made history when Sammy Hagar and the Circle flew in to Lititz, PA, in April of this year (2022) to film four music videos in ONE day at the “backstage of the world,” Rock Lititz, a massive campus that includes multiple facilities to help fuel the innovative and creative mind. This is something that has never been done before, especially on a shoe string budget. VTMC’s mission is to create historic filmaking in never before used spaces.
At a later date, Sammy Hagar and the Circle’s homage to Elvis Costello’s“Pump it Up” video will be released. The director at VTMC used similar angles to capture the essence of the original.
