Bio on:
Phil Maynard

Phil Maynard started his video production career 25 years ago by working for a small, independent video production company in the sales department. During his "video production education" period, he had the opportunity to observe and participate in all stages of development and production of a video, right through to completion of the final edit.

After going into business for himself in 1993 in Charlotte NC, he immediately set up shop with a focus on producing "How-To" videotape series. He produced two consecutive successful series: “The Spirit of Cross Stitch” which was a 14 videotape series and “Woodcarving with Tom Wolfe” which was a 5 videotape series. He marketed both successfully.

During that same period, Phil also produced three (3) 13-episodes television series. “The American Angler” which aired nationally on ESPN2, “The Spirit of Cross Stitch” which aired nationally on PBS, and “The American Home Tour” that aired locally (ABC and NBC affiliates) in Charlotte NC.

Additionally, Phil has been responsible of creating successful :30, :60, & :120 seconds direct response television commercials for outside companies. Phil has also produced 60-seconds commercials and a 30-minute infomercial for his own company, “Total Comfort Sleep System” which aired nationally. This infomercial was ranked 14th place in the top grossing infomercial's from Direct Response Magazine for the year 1998.

Phil’s strengths lie in the concept, writing, producing, and marketing of his productions and his customers’ productions to niche markets. Having gained his knowledge through firsthand experience in both production and marketing, he has attained success in everything he has produced. Phil spent a number of years in the teaching profession prior to getting into video production, so sharing what he sees in the camera lens, and translating that into video comes second nature to him.

Phil’s list of achievements in his field include creating several specialty single videos, developing and completing successful multiple-video “How-To” series: (The Spirit of CrossStitch/ 14 videos and WoodCarving with Tom Wolfe/ 6 videotapes). He produced and directing the pilot program “Creative Living With Charles Craft” that went on to become a 13 episode television series. He produced and marketing three (3) of his own programs. Three full 13-episode television programs: (“The American Angler: / ESPN, “The American Home Tour” and “Spirit of CrossStitch” / PBS) and developed and produced his own infomercial: “The Total Comfort Sleep System” plus multiple direct response commercials for numerous clients nationally and internationally.










The changeover to CD-ROM from strictly video presentations came when a client asked Phil if he could do an interactive CD-ROM and place video on it for the marketing of his bed and breakfast inns. Knowing that the technology existed to do this, Phil elected to take it one step further and program the interactive CD to automatically take the viewer to the clients’ website and e-mail. Phil was successful and decided that his express mission would become interactive CD-ROM that incorporated audio, video, Internet websites, e-mail and document retrieval and printing.

In January of 2000, Phil moved to Maine. The move to Maine was the best move Phil and his wife ever made. “The only thing I feel bad about when I think about our move to Maine is that we didn't do it 20 years ago", Phil says. Phil moved here to be semi-retired and pursue new interests in computers. Phil’s immediate mission was to produce interactive CD-ROMs. After developing the skills necessary to produce quality computer-generated graphics and computer programming, Phil produced an interactive CD-ROM with a do-it-yourself “Will”. That CD has grown into a full line of legal forms on CD plus a complete marketing plan which includes a television commercial, radio commercials, videotape, printed e-booklet, and an extremely successful web site. (Our web site has exceeded 22,000 hits in less than a year). The name of this Will website campaign is “Got A Will?…” (www.gotawill.com) There are several additional interactive CD-ROMs Phil has produced in the “Be Legal For Life” series but for the present his task is to brand and market the “Got A Will?” interactive CD-ROM along with it’s up-sale products. (www.gotawill.com/free/forms.shtml)
After becoming extremely proficient in the development of Interactive CD’s, Phil now has set his sights on interactive Flash websites and the making of DVD's. “Websites today are static. It’s time for the next generation of website development. Audio and video presentations are available and affordable to the average website owner today. Everyone has a message they want to share with a potential client. I want to help them do just that…” Phil says.
January of 2010 Update...
It's amazing how time flies. Phil has come full circle. He is now looking at producing another series of television shows. The show theme is classic cars. The show name, "The rock n Roll Classic Car Show" "Our American Dream Machines". It's due to be aired in taped starting in May or June of this year. Additionally, Phil has become proficient at developing interactive websites. He has a few of his own up and operating and some for clients. Again Phil's focus is on his own work now and believe me he has enough to do.

Professional WordSmithing
WordSmithing is an insider term used to describe production of a script. Many times a client knows his or her business better than anyone does. However, they have problems putting what they do, and how they do it, into words.

Or… what they do and how they do it escapes them but is seen by us. For the web it’s crucial to get your message across quickly and clearly. Often overlooked by our clients is that carefully structured copy on a web page ensures search engines are picking you up on the phrases you use and need.




What We Do…
Graphic Design
With so many competing images in today's marketplace you need to ensure your company stands out from the crowd.

We provide a top-notch company identity graphic design service producing world-class logos for the small (and not so small) business. Typically we will produce up to 5 variations and from there narrow down your preferences.

Marketing and Publicity Literature

Printing
SiteWorks has relationships with local printers and can assure you of the lowest prices for printing available.

Multimedia Design
When your message really demands attention we suggest a combination of audio and visual effects to create an interactive multimedia showcase of your product or service that can, literally if necessary, speak for itself.

Multimedia includes visuals, photos, sound, music, voice-overs, motion, animation and video and can be delivered on a variety of platforms such as websites, interactive CD-ROM, laptop sales presentations, screensavers, exhibitions and display, video demonstrations or standalone applications that are small enough to email to clients. Individual customization facilities can be built into the application.

Flash Website Design
Flash website design is one of our specialities and many of our prospective clients cite features of websites they’ve seen in the past: "we want something similar to that website!" is something we have got used to. Of course, each client is unique and we approach each project differently.
Skip Intro? Not likely - we use Flash to enhance websites, not just for the sake of decoration but to set the mood and establish exactly what your clients about to see and experience on your website. In our business it’s called “Eye Candy”






Multimedia on CDR/DVD
If you have high-resolution artwork, video, audio or a huge amount of products or information to distribute then you should consider CD-ROM or DVD. Prices can be lower than printed literature and have a far greater visual impact.

Sales Materials
Multimedia can be very effective for sales staff looking to impress:
1. Run a multimedia sales presentation from a laptop for one-on-one pitches or from a projector for larger demonstrations. Presentations can be customized by local area sales staff for individual meetings.

2. Use business card sized CD-ROM that include your website - a great leave behind.

Flash Animation
Part of our range of design services is cartoon illustration - this can be animated to great effect if necessary.

Although affordable, this service is fairly protracted so please allow a generous lead time.
