Originally founded in 2005 by veteran media producer Albert Hasson, ARTS4ALL (A4A) was re-launched in early 2014 as a full service media production company, following Albert’s two-year stint as staff Executive Producer at Spinifex Group.
A4A kicked things off by creating and delivering major media projects for global technology leader Tridium’s 2014 Niagara Summit and insurance conglomerate Liberty Mutual Insurance’s Affinity Programs. More recently, A4A added two new agencies to its client roster, Kenwood Experiences (formerly known as KENWOOD GROUP) in San Francisco and INNOCEAN Worldwide in Huntington Beach. These new collaborations expand A4A’s creative and production reach into the pharmaceutical and automotive industries, with leading brands like Amgen and Hyundai.
A4A follows a unique business model that allows us to deliver the highest quality media content at a highly competitive price point. We begin by employing our significant experience at all levels and formats of media production to identify the precise needs of each individual project. We then reach into our extended, battle-tested and loyal network of local, national and international resources in all disciplines of content creation, to draw the precise talents uniquely suited to that project alone. As we like to say, “we don’t just give your project to whoever happens to have nothing on their desk”. And it’s that combination of hand-picked collaborators and reduced overhead that provides the winning combination of top shelf product at ultra-competitive pricing.
From creative concepting to final delivery, from live action to 3D animation, from linear AV media to interactive engagements, A4A is a one-stop shop for all media content intended for live events, global meetings, branding campaigns and online experiences.
