    Boise Young Professionals (BYP) holds an annual event to raise funds for its programs and services and a local nonprofit organization. Members selected the Idaho Humane Society as the 2008 Charity of Choice and this year’s theme is “The Great BYP Gatsby Gala.”

    In 2007, over $16,000 was raised for Wishing Star Foundation, as more than 200 young professionals attended the first annual fundraiser, “Casino Royale”. The funds raised were used to grant wishes to local children with life-threatening illnesses.

:: Marketing Gem of the Month ::


If you aren’t already aware, by February 2009 all television transmission signals will be digital. Although you will still be able to shootyour commercials in standard definition, you may want to consider switching to HD video.

As opposed to standard definition,high definition video has more longevity as standard definition phases out, and, because HD video contains five to ten times more data than standard definition, your image will be significantly sharper. Peppershock has the tools and capabilities to shoot in HD, and we do so on a regular basis. There is a common misconception that because an HD file is much larger than a standard definition file, you cannot use it on your website. In fact, you can use video shot in HD in the same way that you would use standard definition video, with the added benefit of a more clear picture. With the rapid growth in technology that characterizes today’s world, moving to HD video helps your business stay on the cutting edge.
