In just a few months since opening its doors, Rotation Productions, the brand new sister company to the already successful Rotation Records, (in its eleventh year); is already making waves in the metro Philadelphia region landing several large contracts to provide Sound Systems, Audio Production, Sound Engineering, and Lighting to major area venues. It has also commissioned its very first animated film and they have just opened their first Video/Broadcast studio which is already bringing top-quality content to its clients, social media, and the internet.
“Rotation Productions was created out of a desperate need for local musicians & artists to have easier and affordable access to the tools that “signed artists” get from the big labels”, said Joe Staiber, Chairman of Rotation Holdings Corporation and CEO of both Rotation Records and Rotation Productions. The new company intends to bring services such as Hollywood quality music videos, content production, Interviews, Podcasts, and Live Streaming Services to all artists and musicians.
The company will also be challenging the norm in the sound, stage, and audio production industry with a new concept where not only is the use of the sound systems and gear much more affordable, but the sound techs and operations staff that comes with it are easier to work with, better prepared, better trained and provide unmatched customer service levels to both the venues AND the musicians on stage.
“Since we already provide music production and recording to hundreds of local artists at the Rotation Records studios, it just makes sense to offer our clients the next step in their musical journey, which is creating and producing the content required to get that music heard and out to the world, including putting them on stage”, said Tom Jensen, the co-founder and President of Rotation Records and co-owner of Rotation Productions.
The new production capabilities already installed at the Rotation Productions Complex in Norristown, Pennsylvania; includes
the top streaming and recording internet camera systems and software, direct integration from the systems to the internet, and any social media platforms, including direct streaming right to our client’s social media profiles. The top-of-the-line software and systems also offer incredible post production capabilities so
Joe Wisniewski, who has been with Rotation Records since its creation in 2011, is also the owner of WixFX, the Music Video arm of Rotation Records, will join the executive team at Rotation Productions and will lead all of the video, promotion, and editing functions at the new company. “Wiz” as he is known across the industry, is one of the best Music Video directors, producers, and editors anywhere, he has delivered well over 500 music videos in the last 10 years, and now with Rotation Productions' support and capabilities, the video business will be able to expand, grow and produce even better quality and ability than ever before.
Lastly, there are two other amazing divisions of the new company that are already off to a running start. Rotation Live and Rotation Films. Rotation Live is the division that will be providing Stage, Sound, Lighting, Management, Staffing, and Production to venues and events all over the region. Rotation Live has already signed contracts with companies such as Xfinity Live, Renault Winery, the City of Philadelphia, Wawa Welcome America, and many local bars and venues to provide the audio production and management of over 500 concerts, events, and shows over the next 6 months, including the opening night concert for Wawa Welcome America at Penn’s Landing on June 26th before the fireworks. CEO, Staiber tapped his son, Jimmy Staiber to help lead Rotation Live along with Stephen Spera, a longtime partner in many of Rotation’s Events over the years. They have also formed a strong partnership with Schaffer Sound Productions who has been a long-time partner at Rotation Records.
Rotation Films, is the brainchild of Shannon Staiber, another in the line of talented family members, who are a trained and certified 3D animator and visual effects artist, will be creating 3D sets for the company’s productions and client content, music video animations, and even Rotation Productions commissioned animated films. The first of which is already under development and will feature the story of a young artist who has trouble fitting in the “normal” school and the teen world, but then finds a local studio that allows them to find their calling in life and find a place they finally feel normal and finds success. Rotation Films plans to enter this short film to various film festivals in 2022.
And as with anything the Rotation Brand does; giving back to the community is always a priority, Rotation Productions will be no different. Partnering with Rotation Gives, an official 501c3, and a Platinum level Guidestar organization, Rotation Productions has already volunteered to produce the content and provide the staff and studios for Ronald McDonald Camp’s virtual event this coming August, a week-long summer camp for children battling cancer.
