Portland is a town chock full of creative folks, as our booming music and art scenes can attest to. And after posting a record year in 2009 for filming activity, Oregon is even becoming more popular as a shooting location for movies and television series. But Portland still has a long way to go before Hollywood needs to worry, and Hinge Digital hopes to get the ball rolling.
But there was a flip side: With many turning to outsourcing for their marketing content, they needed studios like Hinge to get the job done. And with companies going out of business, unneeded equipment could be acquired at reduced prices, which was advantageous for a fresh startup like Hinge. Their logic behind it all? “If we established ourselves during a downturn, then we’d be ready when things [picked up],” Gauthier says.
