We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremy Elder and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeremy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Boulder Media House was created because four college students wanted to film concerts together, that simple idea quickly grew into a full service production company. Our initial idea behind BMH was that 4 people would be able to work on bigger projects than a solo freelancer ever could. We also came from different backgrounds, Bailey was working in the commercial fashion realm, Riley was working in sports, Ben was working with corporate clients, and I was working in the music industry. We knew our networks and connections were all different and we could all bring something new and unique to the table, and that’s exactly what we did. Since then we have created sub brands, all under the BMH umbrella. Bch House, focused on the branding and identity of musical artists as well as concert and festival recaps. BMH Athletics, building the personal brands of professional athletes and telling their stories through documentaries, hype videos, and post ready social content, and Boulder Media House, where we work with all our enterprise clients servicing all of their creative needs from video to photo, animation, design, and website development. Being creative is what we love, and starting BMH was our way to fuel and fund our passions.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
The biggest thing I have learned from this experience is to never give up and keep fighting for the dream, since day 1 we haven’t given up on the dream. There are always people who will say no, and tell you that you will never accomplish what you set out to do, but if you keep working towards your goals you will reach them. Starting a business is scary because you never know what might happen, but if you don’t start it you will never know what it could have become.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Denver is such a fun city with so many things to do. When friends come to town the first thing I always do is walk around Lodo and Rino. For drinks and food I have a habit of going to Happy Camper, Postino, Blue Moon, and sunset homemade drinks on the patio at my apartment. I love the parks in Denver so you can usually find me playing Volleyball on Sundays in Washington Park or listening to music in Commons Park. The street art in Rino is always fun to show friends, and there are some great bars and restaurants there as well. The mountains are the reason I moved out to Colorado though so I always take my friends on hikes near boulder or camping trips deeper into the Rockies.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shoutout the all the people who have supported us since the beginning: our friends, family, & clients. I also want to shoutout all the companies and artists who told us no when we first started, it might sound strange, but without those initial rejections we would not have worked as hard as we did to get here.
