I'm thrilled for the chance to edit the corporate video for House Hasson Hardware Co. This Knoxville-based company is America's largest independent regional hardware distributor.
How did I get the lucky chance to work with them? I'm still wondering that myself. It's actually an opportunity that came as a result of the United Way campaign video I edited a few months ago. House-Hasson was one of the companies featured. After one of their employees saw that video, they pitched my name to House-Hasson's marketing manager Taylor Hasson, who is the son of CEO Don Hasson.
Don Hasson is also the third member of the Hasson family to run the company since it was founded way back in 1906, and he's helped it grow into a company that serves more than 2,500 hardware stores and lumber yards in 18 states, the Caribbean and South America.
So obviously, they're not small potatoes, but all the friendly folks at House-Hasson made the two-day shoot at their headquarters such a pleasurable experience! I hope to post the video soon when it's complete.
