The Chocolate Milk & Donut difference
We do things a bit differently at CM&D. Not because we have to, but because we choose to! We like eating donuts for meals other than breakfast and sometimes cracking a beer before 5 o’clock. Why? Because we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Do what you love. Love what you do.
From day one, our goal has been the same; combine our love of immersive media and passion for storytelling to help our clients share their story with the world!
Do what’s right, not what’s easy.
Sometimes we say no. Sometimes we push back. We promise to always share our true opinion and never settle for just-good-enough.
Focus on the big picture.
From building the largest VR/360° video community in the South to forming long-term customer parnterships, we continually focus on building lasting relationships within our community and with our clients.
It’s all about finding the right person for the job.
Creating immersive media projects requires a broad range of skills and understanding. We’ve assembled the perfect combo to do just that!
