On this episode of the Adventures of Pipeman, Pipeman talks to Chris Kurtz from TMG and the Virtual Talking Record Label, who is here to talk about some of the cool stuff they have going on over there.

Chris explains that TMG stands for The Media Twist Group, and they are one of the leading ad agencies in the music and motorsports industries. TMG has been the agency to bring the tech to the marketing section first in the music industry. Chris invites Pipeman to have a look and see why the top artists go to TMG to create their shows.

Chris talks about some of the possibilities that we could potentially see in the future but insists to us that no matter what happens, it’ll be coming thanks to web three. He even lists some of the practical uses we can already see thanks to web three on websites like Carvana and StockX.

Chris also talks about what it’s like working as a husband and wife team, saying they have often been demonized, but he says he can’t imagine running the business without his wife Amy

In 2006, power couple Aimee and Chris Kurtz started building their ad agency in “the backstage of the world” in Lititz, PA. It has rapidly grown into the leading ad agency in multiple industries besides entertainment, including healthcare, automotive and even restaurants. The company makes use of social media marketing to build brands. This strategy has proven instrumental in the success of many artists and companies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chris Kurtz, a marketing genius, uses tools and techniques that he's created to push the biggest brands in the world further in their respected industries. Now he's here to share his knowledge with every business wanting to grow.

TMG have worked with the powerhouse brands like Feld Entertainment who put on shows such as Disney on Ice, Barnum & Bailey Circus, Monster Jam, Supercross, and Marvel Universe Live. TMG's ad campaigns have resulted in sold out arenas across the country.
Recently, the couple launched The Virtual Talking Record Label (VTMC) where they are working on several large projects to produce music videos for iconic and top grossing artists like Sammy Hagar and the Circle. They are creating music videos and capturing live performances in 3D through the art of avatar creation, so that future generations will be afforded the unique opportunity to see artists from the past perform live.
The Virtual Talking Record Label made history when Sammy Hagar and the Circle flew into Lititz, PA, in April of this year (2022) to film four music videos in ONE day at the "backstage of the world," Rock Lititz, a massive campus that includes multiple facilities to help fuel the innovative and creative mind. This is something that has never been done before, especially on a shoestring budget. VTMC's mission is to create historic filmmaking in never before used spaces.
On July 29, 2022, Sammy Hagar and the Circle released their single "Crazy Times" along with the video that was shot at Rock Lititz. The video can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voqpGNuhdRE

At a later date, Sammy Hagar and the Circle's homage to Elvis Costello's "Pump it Up" video will be released. The director at VTMC used similar angles to capture the essence of the original.
