“We are very happy to announce that we recently completed our first brand name project for the Crowne Athens City Hotel. Another aspect that characterizes our work is that we use a more cinematic approach. The commercial will soon have a wide public release according to the marketing strategy followed by the Hotel. This period we are in talks for making new Projects for other important brand name companies” said Terzakis.
“Our target market doesn’t confine us only to Greece. We believe that because of the economic crisis many opportunities have appeared that make it much easier than it used to be, in doing business with other companies from countries around the world.
