Spotlight: Mantis Shrimp Media
Join us as we talk with Carly Scagnetti, owner of Mantis Shrimp Media LLC, about the hard work it takes to do something you love for a living every day.
What is your first memory of your business?
Going through the process of trying to set up the business. It was a lot of hard work and research to figure out what needed to be done, but luckily I found some very helpful people along the way to guide me through the process.
How does your first memory compare to what the company has become today?
The company has grown a lot since the first days. Now I’m continually looking for new ways to expand.
What has surprised you the most about being a business owner?
It’s a lot of hard work , but it’s the most rewarding work I’ve ever done.
Who are some of the coolest people you've met since opening?
All my clients. Every project is different, and its always great to work with new people to figure out what works best for their needs.
What might we be surprised to learn about your business?
I do all the areas of video production myself. On occasion I hire an additional videographer if needed, but I do the shooting and editing all myself.
How do you think your company will change in the next 5 years?
I think it will expand quite a bit. There seems to be a continually growing need for online videos.
What has been your main goal running this company?
Getting to do work I love doing — video production.
What has been the most satisfying thing about opening this business?
Due to the structure of my business, I am able to offer very affordable videos that some other companies just can’t offer. Because of this I am able to offer my services to those who might have though producing a video was out of their budget.
Why did you choose Cleveland?
Great opportunities and awesome people.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
Mantis Shrimp Media offers a variety of video production services. I am able to do videos for businesses or events, such as weddings.
