Multimedia house Thru the RedDoor, Juno award-winning musician Derek Miller, and musician and media professional Marty Ballentyne (Breach of Trust, Inez Jasper, George Leach) are eager and excited to announce the launch of new venture 6 Arrows Media.
The three came together sharing a vision of an unparalleled creative environment and next-generation studio experience. Now, 6 Arrows Media, nestled in the heart of Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, launches November 1, 2014.
“Our core Thru the RedDoor team is humbled to be working with both of these tremendously talented individuals. With our combined resources we envision 6 Arrows Media quickly becoming a behemoth multimedia hub in Indian Country and beyond,” said Gary Joseph, 6AM Partner and Project Manager at Thru the RedDoor.
“Our Nov. 1 launch event will be streamed live from our Ohsweken studio, will be viewable on our website, and will be the first real demonstration of our capabilities as 6AM.”
For artists, partnering with 6AM means access to recording, photography, and video production technologies, spaces for live performances, live streaming, and all the capabilities of an internet service provider in one place.
Juno award-winning musician Derek Miller, one of the minds behind the new partnership, says 6AM is the company he wished existed twenty years ago when he began his own career in music.
“We’re eager to share what we’ve been working on. 6AM will be able to take those artists who live next door and give them every tool they need to be successful. We have the technology, we have the industry experience, and we have the vision. It is our hope that this company is there to give artists the boost that people like Marty and I didn’t have when we began. For us, this is a way of giving back,” said Miller.
“The need to create meaningful art with like-minded people is something felt keenly by all artists,” said Ballentyne, 6AM partner and Toronto-based media professional. “We believe in collaboration, honoring our roots, and taking what we’ve learned and paying it forward. This is an unbelievable opportunity for all involved and we encourage anyone who might be interested to come and visit. We would love to know what you’re getting into and how we might be able to help you bring your vision to life. Let’s talk!”
The doors will be thrown open with an exclusive kick-off celebration streaming online live at www.6arrowsmedia.com November 1, 2014. Joseph says, “Viewers can look forward to dynamic web content, original programming and live-streamed events for years to come.”
