The Vegan Will Now Take Your Questions…

What the hell does a vegan eat anyway? Why yes, that is the title of one of my favorite vegan cooking blogs. Most people have a lot of questions when I mention that I maintain a vegan diet and lifestyle. Trust me, I’ve heard them all. Suffice it to say that for the past five years I have avoided consuming any animal products for ethical, ecological, and nutritional...

Hot, Hot, Hot…

Summer has officially peaked. It's so hot you could fry an egg out there—and I'm talking about the business, not just the weather. Last month, things were just starting to sizzle, and now we've got plenty to report. SKM participated in two awesome charity events recently as part of our 25th anniversary celebration.

The Right Tool Is A Cool New Tool.

It’s a fact that the right tool for the job improves the finished result. Recently, SKM Group added a new tool to our video production toolbox: the skater dolly. It’s a tabletop dolly that allows a DP (director of photography) to get super tight shots of objects or people. In this case, we wanted to shoot extreme close-ups of food for client TOPS Friendly Markets...
