Film922 creates compelling content for any screen: Television Commercials, Web Videos, Marketing Films, Documentaries, and Music Videos. It also provides crew for productions in New England. John Papa along with his wife, Art Director Katy McGee, own and operate the business.
Recently Film922 moved into their new 2,000 sq. studio located in an historic mill building in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. “Lots of companies shoot video, but we tell stories with cinematography, original music and our personal hands on commitment,” Papa explains. Among their clients are Mashable,
Hasbro, Toys R Us, Dorel Juvenile, Little Kids, Mensch on a Bench, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Jabra, On Guard, Lionel Trains, Poliquin and Summer Infant. Frequently, Film922 provides support for national television productions.
Film922’s new location has a great shooting area, a full functioning kitchen set; three edit systems and a Logic Station for VO and Music production. It’s a busy place…
IMAGINE is always interested in how a company names itself. Film922 has a special meaning to John Papa. He was recruited out of New York City to come to Hasbro and start Cake Mix Studios in 2005. He worked there for almost eight years but, he says, “I was putting in crazy hours. I worked my first son’s
entire childhood away and I wasn’t going to do it anymore. My little one was then eight years old. I decided to leave. I took an entire year off and hung out with him. When I was ready to go back to work the most important thing to me was my family.”
Their home address is 922 and John selected it as his company name to always remind him to be home as much as possible. “I put the numbers in our name and I’m in the film and video business. Film922 LLC. That’s it.”
