Welcome To The New Website - Jan 9, 2015

PMG’s own Robert French has been busy chipping away at this new site for a while… and now with much ballyhoo welcome to the new site! If there was one over riding influence to the site it was the work of Lella & Massimo Vignelli who in our mind’s are the most brilliant team of Graphic Designers to have walked the earth. We kept things clean, simple, and grid like. We also wanted something where the work spoke for itself and nothing more. Also, a few words about Tara’s contribution to the site giving small insights here and there that really shaped the “vibe” of the site. – G

Jesse Arrigo Gala - Dec 22, 2014

If you know Grant then you’ve heard about Jesse Arrigo. Jesse is one of the most remarkable people in our families lives. In 2011 Jesse drowned in a pond in his grandparents back yard. Little hope was given for his survival let along any sort of recovery. Jesse’s progress has been nothing short of a miracle. Grant has created a number of short films about Jesse to raise awareness and funds. Now more than ever the family needs help and money has been getting tighter the past year. PMG with for great folks at DreamWorld Events is putting together a Gala in late April with the goal of raising $100K for Jesse’s on going care.

About PMG… - Jun 25, 2014

Where do I start? PMG is a dream come true of sorts for me. The chance to do things the way I’ve always wanted to do them and surround myself with a dream team of collaborators. Over the past few years I came to feel there was a real need for a more intimate stripped down approach to advertising. To simplify things to it’s barest essentials. At my heart I’m a storyteller and visualist who loves the advertising biz. So, starting PMG is an extension of my mantra’s as a Producer, Director, and Entrepreneur. But most importantly to me PMG was the chance to work with my wife of 15 years Tara who is the companies COO. She gives me the space to do what I do best while holding down the fort.  With that cornerstone in place we brought on board Rion Gonzales as our Head of Production, Anthony Adamo as Lead Editor, and then lined up award winning Producer / Director’s Mike Ward, Jim Morrison IV, and Mitch Belman who all have heart stopping CV’s. With this core group the only way now is up.
