CSI Kick Start, CSI Enterprises’ Incubator, Invests in Front Runner Films
The award-winning corporate video work of the team behind Front Runner Films is now available to companies seeking to leverage the power of video to bring stories to life
Bonita Springs, FL – August 15, 2016 – Front Runner Films, LLC is the newest addition to the CSI Enterprises family of companies, the latest investment from incubator CSI Kick Start, Inc. The startup video production company may fall outside of CSI’s payments wheelhouse, but the market need for quality commercial and branded content quickly became apparent when CSI set out to bring its stories to life through video as part of the company’s 25-year anniversary two years ago.
At that time, CSI hired Tyler Nimmons as Director of Video Production. Bringing over a decade of experience as an award-winning writer, director and producer in Los Angeles, his work with CSI began to uncover a market need to bring elements of successful television and film to the corporate world. Seeing an opportunity to meet this need, entrepreneur Nimmons founded Front Runner Films in 2016.
“Corporate videos have a stigma of being boring,” said Nimmons. “Our philosophy is different. We bring to our commercial video work the same elements that make film and television successful, combining humor and heart to create memorable, attention-grabbing videos.” For CSI globalVCard, the results of this philosophy have been transformational.
“What really sets Front Runner Films apart is the ability to take our concept, vision and brand message, and combine it with just the right balance of entertainment,” said Kristi Grigsby, VP of Marketing for CSI globalVCard. “The award-winning commercials and customer stories we’ve created together really distinguish our brand and have become one of our most effective sales tools for driving new business.”
“Although the primary focus of CSI Kick Start is on investing in payments technology, Front Runner Films is a great example of our broader interest in companies that are led by passionate entrepreneurs that demonstrate market need, exceptional talent and vision, and the desire for mentorship to grow a successful enterprise,” said Keith Stone, founder and CEO of CSI Enterprises. “As the entrepreneurs behind Yoke Payments discovered, there is unlimited potential to what we can do together.”
