Moody On The Market

Pat Moody

Imagine walking down the street on a Saturday afternoon and being greeted by someone sharing condolences over the fire that destroyed your new business.<br /> <br /> That’s exactly what happened recently to PictureRide Films & Media President Al Baker.<br /> <br /> Baker tells me he was “stunned” by the message from his friend considering he had no idea that his brand new film studio had been consumed by fire earlier in the day. Baker and his partner, filmmaker Andrew Havlik, were supposed to be moving into their newly remodeled space at the corner of 2nd Street and Miller on the periphery of the Benton Harbor Arts District by now. Instead, they are busy regrouping, calculating their losses and completing editing work for other clients under contract. Baker says they launched their ambitious rehab work back in October and had a third partner in the project in the form of a sound engineer who was crafting a sound recording studio in his portion of the building. Work had progressed to the extent that PictureRide was anticipating completing the move from space on E. Napier Avenue where they have been headquartered since creation of the business. Fortunately, the majority of their computer equipment, high definition camera gear and other critical pieces of their company had not been moved to the new space as yet, and the same holds true for the sound engineer identified only as Jason, who was still crafting his space as well. The fire is still a mystery, of unknown origins, although Baker says there were no indications of any outside source as a propellant. Fortunately, nobody was in the building when fire struck, so nobody was injured in the blaze which remains under investigation by the Benton Harbor Department of Public Safety. PictureRide Films & Media is an independently run one-stop professional cinematic film & media studio. Baker is Producer and Director for the PictureRide team with more than 18-years in the business including promotional web-based videos, documentaries, and narrative films. His partner Havlik was lead photographer, videographer, special effects man and editor. He brought more than 5 years of experience to the cutting room floor including his time at Columbia College Chicago Film & Video, corporate video work, and narrative. Only about a third of the studio’s gear was in place when the fire struck, mostly in the form of lighting grids and gear. A number of tools were lost in the fire, too, still on hand for the ongoing rehabilitation of the building. PictureRide is currently heavily engaged in editing projects for other filmmakers, and none of that work was destroyed in the fire, and they have been offered several spaces as alternative sites for their new studio, but Baker says they’ll take their time now to regroup and plan for what comes next. The 1,500 square foot building in the 300 block of Miller Street appears to be a total loss according to Baker, who awaits word from fire inspectors on exactly what caused the fire in the first place. PictureRide has done extensive work in recent years for the Benton Harbor Area Schools, producing television commercials and documentaries regarding the school systems attributes and programming. They have also done some work in cooperation with Harbor Lights TV and for Whirlpool Corporation, PathFinders,and Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower’s political campaigns.<br /> <br /> Less than two years after transplanting from downtown South Haven to the central business district of St. Joseph, The Willow Tree will return to its roots in South Haven this spring. Jennifer Kenreich spent her last day as a downtown St. Joseph merchant on Saturday, January 24th, and shortly thereafter began packing up her eclectic collection of home decor items preparatory to the northern trip up the shoreline.

Her previous store downtown had been in the 600 block of Phoenix Street.<br /> <br /> Karen Garlanger’s reputation as a top-flight interior design artist received a major boost recently when the online community of Houzz issued her Karen Garlanger Designs of St. Joseph the official designation of Best of Houzz 2015 -- Service. It’s a professional award designation reserved for only the very best practitioners as voted on by readers and subscribers to the website. The Best of Houzz award for Service is reserved for professionals “rated at the highest level for client satisfaction by the Houzz community.” Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, and a homeowner-to-homeowner guide to the top home builders, architects, interior designers like Karen, landscape pros and other residential remodeling professionals from tile, stone and countertop pros to painters. Liza Hausman is Vice President of Industry Marketing for Houzz. She says, “Houzz connects people with the best home professional for their project by providing the only 360-degree view of a professional, from their portfolio, client reviews, awards and accreditations to their work style and expertise based on their participation in the Houzz community.” She adds, “We’re delighted to join our community in recognizing the talented professionals on Houzz who are delivering incredible designs and delightful customer experiences.” Less than 3-percent of the companies on Houzz ever earn the “Best of Houzz” distinction. Karen Garlanger Designs, which is moving into new quarters with her Welcome Home center behind Dunkin Donuts in Southtown St. Joseph, earned the Service award this year for client satisfaction. It goes nicely, sideby- side, with the award she earned last year of Best of Houzz 2014 -- Design. That designation recognized her portfolio for being “voted most popular by the Houzz community.” Thus, Karen’s hard work for clients has paid off at both levels recognized annually by the Houzz community. The Service honors for which she is being recognized this year is determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews received over the past year. Design awards, like the one Karen earned last year, reflect the most popular professionals among the more than 25-million monthly users on Houzz, referred to as “Houzzers.” As shown on Karen’s Houzz profile, the honors produce badges that can be proudly displayed to show the entire online community her commitment to excellence. The badges also help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz. Houzz has the largest residential design database in the world and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California. Karen Garlanger Design was established five years ago and continues to grow exponentially.<br /> <br /> Hearing loss is a major health epidemic and the impact from it can be devastating. With that in mind, an internationally renowned hearing expert based right here in Michigan’s Great Southwest, is offering up a free Hearing Health Seminar in mid-February to address the issue.<br /> <br /> Dr. Gyl Kasewurm from Professional Hearing Services in St. Joseph is proud to offer the community an educational seminar on the subject, followed by lunch at The Boulevard Inn in St. Joseph. Dr. Kasewurm has a sterling reputation worldwide as a major international presenter on hearing health and she will provide attendees with exciting and new information on the topics of understanding and overcoming hearing loss, the impact of untreated hearing loss, and an overview of today’s most effective hearing systems. Dr. Kasewurm says, “Many people miss sounds here and there. A word, a sentence, maybe whole conversations have become difficult. But, because hearing loss is typically gradual, over time, you may be missing more than you know.” In fact, she says, “Approximately 39-percent of people over the age of 65 have a hearing loss, so it’s very likely that you or someone you know is being impacted by hearing loss.” Hearing loss is actually a major health epidemic and the impact on a person’s cognitive and emotional health can be devastating when left untreated. Your opportunity to attend Dr. Gyl’s free seminar is Tuesday, February 17th, from 11am until 1pm, however seating is limited to the first 50 people to call 269-982-3444 to make a reservation. Lunch will be served following the presentation. Dr. Kasewurm has earned many awards and honors including a Distinguished Achievement Award from the American Academy of Audiology, but is more proud of the Leadership Award that was bestowed upon her by Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce. She was also recently honored by Western Michigan University as a Distinguished Alumnus, an honor awarded to only 99 of the more than 17,000 graduates of the College of Health & Human Services. She has owned and operated Professional Hearing Services in St. Joseph for more than thirty years. You can learn more about her practice by clicking the link below:<br /> <br /> http://www.prohear.net<br /> <br /> With the pro football season wrapping up with the Super Bowl last weekend, TV sports fans will increasingly tune to the lush green images of the early stages of the professional golf season emanating from exotic locales like Hawaii and others.
