THE REST OF Our Team
We work with a group of artists, writers and filmmakers to get the job done. Some are regulars around here while others are contractors that we work with on an as needed basis.
Our values are simple "To love God and love others." With that in mind we have couple things that are near and dear to our heart. Around New Tie we like to refer to these things as SET.
S – Support
At New Tie we want to be supportive of churches and non-profits. New Tie gives a discount on our hourly rate to these types of organizations.
E – Equip
We want our New Tie employees to be equipped to help our their local community. With that in mind each employee is allowed and encouraged to take 4 hours per week of company time to help out their local church or non-profit of their choice. Employees are also allowed to use company equipment such as computer, cameras, lenses etc.
T – Train
It is our desire at New Tie Productions to identify and develop the next generation of leaders. We desire to do this through two avenues. The first being to train students and give them the necessary job skills that they need to be successful anywhere, not just at our company. The second is an employee personal development program that continues to grow each of our employees both personally and professionally.
