Midnight Media Group, Inc. (“MMGI”) was founded in 1981 by David Emmerling and Walter Schoenknecht, both experienced producer/directors of non-broadcast audio and video programs. Pharmaceutical, medical and financial services clients commissioned the firm’s earliest projects, with deliverables raging from marketing programs to 25-city satellite video teleconferences.
The company gradually acquired the technology assets necessary to execute the projects it conceptualized and created, believing that clients’ interests are best served when production staffers have unrestricted access to creative tools. In 1993, Midnight Media Group moved to a 5,000 square foot facility in suburban Millburn, NJ outfitted expressly for its creative operations.
In January of 2004, Midnight Media Group welcomed Robert Camitta as a third partner. Camitta, an Emmy award-winning cameraman, was a founding partner of East Rutherford, NJ-based CLOS/Video Center of NJ. Over the course of more than 20 years, his company provided location facilities and video editing for productions ranging from the Miss America Pageant to Sesame Street; his influence is seen today in such recurring projects as MMGI’s annual coverage of the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York.
Today, Midnight Media Group, Inc. tackles complex production projects, helping clarify essential communications, and offering clients fresh alternatives of style, format and delivery modality.
