14 Jan Happy Birthday To Us !!!
One year ago, on January 14, 2010 my brother Vitaliy and I went to the administrative offices in downtown Sacramento, filled out a bunch of paperwork and made our dream come true. We have both been doing photography and cinema for years before, but we always talked about opening up a studio together. Aperina Studios was our dream come true.
We always talked about the company and how it would function but we never imagined it to be as successful and notable as it is today. God has truly blessed us with amazing talents and helped us develop Aperina Studios into one of the most creative and sought after photo and cinema companies among the Slavic community in the west coast. We truly want to thank all those young, beautiful couples that have trusted our brand new company with capturing their most exciting day of their lives. As a new company starting up in a horrible economic atmosphere, we also had financial fears, but we believed that we could make Aperina Studios happen and here we are.
In the spring of 2010, Aperina Studios has made the decision to continue the Inquestic tradition of creativity by acquiring all Inquestic website design studio equipment and folding graphic and web design into our extensive list of services. In addition, we welcomed Igor Sagan to our team. Igor has been a web programmer and graphic designer for Inquestic Design for the past three years. His capabilities are a perfect match to join the talented Aperina Studios’ team.
Aperina Studios – so what does it mean?. Many people ask us of how we came up with that name. It’s completely made up, but we did take the “aper-“ root from aperture. Having a unique name, we worked all year on creating our identity and expanding our name using various networking techniques. One big positive boom to our company came before our official birthday. We filmed various comical video clips for Bethany Slavic Missionary Church for their New Year 2010 celebration. Below is one of the most popular clips.
Once the videos were posted onto our blog, our website got bombarded with visitors. Those videos surprised many Slavic viewers because the creativity and quality level of the videos was on a totally different level than they were used to. We had numerous people compliment our quality and the production of the videos. This positive inspiration gave us a really big “creative adrenaline rush” and pushed us to improve even more and provide the best products that we can achieve. We always strive to make our photo, video, and design products more creative and focus a lot on improving quality. We are extremely excited at the bright future we see with our dream, Aperina Studios.
