Tell us about Corey Stein Films. It was during a brief high school elective class that I first held a camera and gained experience with a full editing suite. It was then that I started to learn the power of creating a story through creative image. Although I intended to focus on business in college, my passion became more focused and I gained considerable knowledge in film and video and widened my hands-on experience.
When just starting out, I had every intention of working in the film production field for a company until I sat down and spoke with a college alumnus who started and ran his own film company. His words, “Just go out and make videos,” were the catalyst I needed to start my own video production company. I now have complete control of the work I put out under my own company name.
What is the best piece of business advice you’ve ever received? The best piece of advice I ever received was to build a network in the community I live in. This has become a large focus of my business affiliations and has resulted in my business growth.
What is your favorite spot in Marblehead, and why? My favorite spot in Marblehead is Fort Sewall. It may be a cliche answer but you can’t beat the views and location!
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you? I am 25 years old and decided to start my business right out of college.
