Russell Agro: Glassland Media
Russell Agro graduated in the summer of 2006 with a degree in Film and Moving Image. In 2008 he launched Glassland Media with his business partner Jamie Watson, a creative video production company which produces high quality videos for the business and broadcast markets.
In June 2008, Russell and Jamie were awarded the Business Start-Up Proof of Concept grant of £1000, to test the feasibility of their ideas. Glassland Media used this money for the creation of two websites to promote their services.
Their principal website promotes their core activity, which is highly creative and innovative video products. Russell said;
“We provide a complete in-house service including script writing, filming, editing, DVD authoring and web TV broadcasts".
After a successful first year and both of their websites proving to be a hit with clients; a new updated website has been launched to promote their skills and various services Glassland Media now offers customers.
Glassland Media has recently expanded moving into a larger studio based within Leeds. Gradually building up a corporate client base and focusing on trying to push the Educational Video side of the business, Glassland Media are set to expand their business on a more national scale.
