Every Visionaries Dream Come True: How Media Agency Whiteout Is Bringing Together The Worlds Top Creative Artists From Around The World

Published

on

I had the pleasure of interviewing Jamieson Murphy and Clint Hodnett, the founders of Whiteout, a media agency filled with some of the top visionaries in the world who all have a passion for creating visual stories that bring every brand and business to life. They started the company over a shared love of creating memories and stories that will last a lifetime. 

The Whiteout team has taken their success from social media and rendered it to work closely with some of the world’s most respected brands. They have been able to stand out from everyone else because of their attention to detail, creative direction, and ability to develop amazing results for every single one of their client’s marketing campaigns. As a stacked team of over 200+ creators, the Whiteout team will always bring the vision of your company to life. 

Both are from the Northeast, with Jamieson coming from Connecticut and Clint from Rhode Island. They currently live in Miami Florida where they get to travel and explore some of the world’s most beautiful destinations, producing digital imagery that speaks for itself.

Jamieson & Clint: We pride ourselves on never forcing creativity or inspiration at all, we seek it out and always go the extra mile for every business, brand or artist to showcase their product, hotel, festival, etc., that always leaves the viewer wanting to see more.

Clint Hodnett

From A Dream to Over 200 Creators

Jamieson’s story is unlike most, he picked up a camera about 8 years ago after the death of his father in 2009. He used creative art as a source of expression and a way to deal with depression. 

“A fellow visionary once said that art and depression go hand in hand… and I couldn’t agree more”

I don’t think that I would be in Miami or have ever picked up a camera if I didn’t go through such a traumatic experience at such a young age says, Jamieson. Taking that initial jump to chase a dream and go after a goal was frightening. He knew the risk that he was taking and how serious it was but he just couldn’t sit around in a small town in Connecticut. Fast forward two years and the risk was one of the best decisions he’s ever made!

How The Creation Of Whiteout Will Change Lives

Jamieson & Clint: There are so many influential and all-around amazing people in this world that need more recognition for their work and Whiteout is definitely going to change the lives of some of those individuals. We created Whiteout to show the world through our creative viewfinder. Whether it’s shooting a short promotional video for a real estate agent, short travel film for a 5-star hotel or a car commercial that the client never expected could be produced, Whiteout puts all of our young, creative minds together to make it possible for any brand or company. 

Every creative in the world has a dream brand or company to work with and I know with the help through Whiteout we can make that happen. We can not only grow this agency into one of the top agencies in the world, all over the news, magazines, etc. but also help anyone along the way with jobs and making a huge impact on generations to come.

The Difference Between Whiteout and Everyone Else 

There are so many “agencies” in the world today. Whiteoutes attention to detail and creativity separates them from everyone else. They always go the extra mile for every one of their clients and always brings a final product that leaves clients speechless. 

In 5 years, they see Whiteout as one of the top media agencies in the world. Jamieson and Clint, along with the whole team have the drive and ambition to make this happen. Jamieson says that Whiteout is going to be known globally. Though there may be obstacles and challenges along the way, with a team as solid as theirs, I doubt there is anything that can bring them down.

Meet Jack Doherty: The Sixteen Year Old Who Has Accumulated Over 2.5 Million Subscribers in YouTube

Published

on

Jack Doherty is a 16 year old YouTuber who has 2.5 million subscribers on YouTube. His  most popular video, titled “I flipped all of these!”, has gotten over 26 million views. He posts videos that are pranks, challenges, and other funny videos. He is well known for his series where he skips school or gets kicked out of stores. His crazy stunts have catapulted his Youtube channel to success and changed his life.

Ever since he was a little boy, Jack knew he wanted to be successful.

“Everyone thought I would become a professional athlete because I was good at every single sport there is. Instead, I ended up posting YouTube videos. Once I saw that they started doing good, I decided to go full time with that and really wanted to make a change and inspire other kids to do what they love. I have now been doing YouTube for 3 years,” he says.

His inspiration to start his own Youtube channel came from seeing other YouTubers posting crazy videos while having fun. 

“I said that I want to become big on YouTube and one day meet all the YouTubers that I look up to, and now I’m good friends with almost all of them,” he says.

Because of his age, Jack faced many challenges when it came down to being taken seriously. He advises those looking to start their own business to not worry about what other people think. 

“Don’t let people get in the way of your goals and you being successful. Also don’t let age get in the way of that either. I started Youtube when I was just thirteen and I didn’t let anyone tell me that I can’t do it or let anyone hold me back. I knew what I had to do to be successful and I did it,” he shares. 

For Jack, mindset was extremely important. because 

“You have to be motivated and you have to want it. You can’t let other people get into your head and change your vision. You can’t think about the past and your mistakes because that will only hold you back. Don’t let fear scare you away from taking risks and not taking the step forward that you need in order to achieve your goals,” he says. 

Jack’s definition of success is being in a spot where he is happy and able to inspire others to be successful and take the risks they need to take in order to do so. To him it also means being financially free and being able to do what he wants. 

Jack is constantly looking for ways to make his videos better, and this is what sets him apart from the competition. His originality and creativity with his content is what has gotten him to where he is today, and the following that he has.

Right now, Jack is working on taking his YouTube career to the next level. He is also learning e-commerce, and learning how to take profits from that. He recently bought a house as his first investment property at only sixteen years old, and plans to continue buying more.

Jack Doherty has catapulted himself into Youtube stardom through his crazy stunts and creative videos. As a sixteen year old self made millionaire, Jack has a clear view of what he wants for himself. He plans to continue growing, and inspiring those around him to not let anything or anyone stop them from doing whatever it is they want to do.

WHY #PAY TAMPA BAY

Florida is home to the third-largest cluster of insurance and banking companies in the U.S., making it an ideal location to launch and support a fintech venture.

Published

#PAY TAMPA BAY | 02.20.2020 | EMBARC COLLECTIVE
#PAY TAMPA BAY has opportunities for speakers, sponsors and supporters.

On my recent trip to Las Vegas for the Money 20/20 event, I received a lot of questions about #PAY TAMPA BAY. I’m writing this blog to share my vision for this unique event.

First and foremost our technology corridor is experiencing tremendous growth with startup incubators and accelerators in all three major cities, Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. Huge investments from business leaders and local government cooperation is expediting growth.

Tampa Bay Lightning Owner, Jeff Vinik is collaborating with Bill Gate’s Cascade Partners to revitalize the downtown business district with a new innovation hub as a keystone in the project.

Strategic Property Partner’s $3 Billion dollar Water Street Project will catalyze the city and it’s technology oriented growth for 2020 and beyond. Water Street Project Website

As a native of Tampa Bay this is exciting news to me and it provided an opportunity to showcase this growth to the financial services industry. We want to attract attention and investment to the area to aid in growth and prosperity.

Embarc Collective is a 33,000 square foot, $12 million dollar, state-of-the-art innovation hub opening in 2020. #PAY TAMPA BAY is the first official event following the grand opening. The hub will have private workspaces, a public cafe, outdoor lounge and lending library. 

“We’ve created an urban porch for this historic, brick warehouse,” Jan Barna, president of Kreher/Barna Design Studio, said in a release. “And designed an interior that reflects a microcosm of our urban environment.”

To make the massive space a little more close-knit, it will be split up to “mini-neighborhoods” which are intended to have the tenants create close connections with their neighbors.

“You have different companies in private offices that have a small shared area, so it’s a community inside of a community,” she said. “These companies get to know each other, cheer each other on, but in a much smaller community.”

As important as this infrastructure is, it’s the people and their passion that make the difference. We have found that Tampa Bay is full of passionate leaders that are highly involved in fintech.

Two of those people are Rosa Shores and Gabe Higgins, Founders of BlockSpaces. We have partnered with this blockchain innovation studio that is focused on creating value-added solutions to organizations looking to leverage emerging technology to organize and present this upcoming event at this brand new, downtown innovation hub.

There is a number of other local passionate leaders in the fintech realm here in “the other Bay Area”. Numerous financial services giants are opening their doors in the corridor to leverage our burgeoning fintech industry and perks of a warmer climate.

Today, Florida is home to the third-largest cluster of insurance and banking companies in the U.S., making it an ideal location to launch and support a fintech venture. We’re reaching out to the fintech industry in many different ways to attract attention and investment to the area.

Recently a cohort representing St. Pete’s financial services leaders joined the Greater St. Petersburg Area EDC in Times Square on October 25 during the Finovate Fall event to talk to New York-based companies about the business opportunity in the Sunshine City.

Greater St. Pete EDC President, J.P. Dubuque was joined by Intrinio, Presence, Raymond James, Dynasty Financial Partners, and the City of St. Petersburg, who shared their Florida Fintech story with the Finovate Fall delegates and members of the media.

“St. Pete is young and vibrant, it’s a happening place. It’s one of the most up-and-coming cities in the Southeast”

Shirl Penny, President & CEO, Dynasty Financial Partners.

“Financial services companies don’t need to be in New York, they can be in St. Pete, thrive, succeed and be much happier” said St. Pete EDC President.

“I think we need to pump our chest out and be proud of who and what we are, and even more so about what we’re becoming” said Tash Elwyn, President and CEO of Raymond James, Private Clients Group.

“We need to continue to do more of this, we need to tell the story, work together and we need to make sure everybody knows how special St. Pete is”.

I personally find a great challenge in this and am joining the ranks of those already working to attract attention and investment to the area. I have committed my company to organizing this event with the intention of helping to build progress, talent density and take part in the growth and transformation of this thriving technology corridor.

#PAY TAMPA BAY has opportunities for speakers, sponsors and supporters. We want to challenge companies in the financial services space to get involved and participate in this special one day event designed to bring fintech leaders to the Tampa Bay area.

If you want to support innovation and gain insight to what Tampa Bay has to offer please contact us. We’re happy to discuss your organization’s participation in this unique and inspiring event.

Hi Vincent, how have you been?

I have been fine, working hard on a couple of projects. Surprising features are coming, planning my next & first album.

You wanted us to address you as a rapper, but you also produce. Why is this?

Yeah, I produce music as well. I do a lot haha. Writing, producing, singing and also rapping. Currently working on my first rap album, so that’s one of the reasons. Plus, I like rapping better.

Why do you like rapping more than producing?

I like it mostly because I can express myself better, and be more creative when I play with words.

We’re currently in London, for your tour. How do you like being on tour?

It’s amazing. Its great, I love the vibes on the cities I’ve been too. Exploring different cultures. Eating good of-course
