Flashback: Taking a look at Video Production’s role at VUP Media

As we continue to get ready to celebrate VUP Media’s 25th anniversary, we take a look back to see how far we’ve come and where we are going.  Every Friday we are going to take a trip down memory lane to look at the journey of one of our services. Today we are starting with video!

Video First

Video Production as been at the core of VUP Media since our beginning. VUP Media’s founder, Andrew Fogell, purchased his first camera at age 14. At 21 years old, Andrew moved into video (it was first coming out at this time too!). Being one of the first to the market in videography, Andrew began working with a wedding photographer producing video for weddings. He even built his own editing suite to be able to do his own editing. In 1993, Andrew branches out on his own and incorporates Video Unlimited Productions (VUP Media).

Within his first year, Pride Automotive group reach out because they were interested in VUP Media’s modern, non-linear editing approach. They were impressed by how quick the videos were produced and edited. VUP Media began producing TV commercials for all 6 of their dealerships. During this time, Andrew also began filming a half hour Realtor show, launching VUP into TV commercial and program production.

1996 brought a change to technology with DV cam (digital based recording). Armed with a new way of filming, Andrew took on producing Cooking with Nick, a popular TV cooking show that ran for several seasons. VUP Media began attracting bigger and bigger clients, moving into the corporate world. Around 2001, Andrew realized that many of his clients’ needs were switching to digital. At the time, no one was producing video specifically for digital viewing. But with the birth of YouTube in 2005, companies began looking towards digital as the next marketing platform.


VUP Media picked up on this trend and moved into the market of strategically creating and producing videos for the digital marketplace. We continue to be a part of the  tremendous growth in this area. VUP Media is currently taking videos to new heights with our investment in a drone with 4k video capabilities.
