Experience: the WestGlen Difference.
WestGlen Communications began in 1970 as a distributor of sponsored 16mm films, and as a producer/distributor of news films, the forerunner of video news releases. Early clients included sponsors of television documentaries who wanted further exposure in the nation's classrooms, as well as traditional corporate producers of educational, enrichment programs.
Since 16mm prints are expensive, some corporate clients — such as pharmaceutical companies — retained WestGlen to inspect, clean and ship their prints to internal audiences. Later, as videocassettes became standard, West Glen began supplying cable TV systems with programs on 3/4" cassettes, and non-television audiences with VHS copies.
Today, WestGlen is the nation’s largest, most diverse distributor/producer of sponsored programming on behalf of corporations, trade associations, government agencies, advertising and public relations agencies and non-profit foundations. The company distributes programs from as short as ten and thirty seconds (public service announcements), to 90 seconds (news videos), half hour documentaries for cable TV and two-hour foreign language feature films.
For nearly four decades, WestGlen has been finding solutions to get client's key messages to their target audiences. We are a unique blend of creativity and technology:
