led by owner and principal, Todd Oomens
Owner - Creative Director
Todd Oomens has been involved in the media industry for 27 years. He got his start working overnight Master Control for the CBS station, WLTX-TV in Columbia, SC, while pursuing his undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism at the University of South Carolina. He went on to a life in the fast-paced world of live news reporting, specialty national television broadcasting, niche small-market channel development, video production to sell luxury real estate and large-scale commercial projects. It has been a rich and rewarding life, and it has provided him unparalleled expertise.
But television, like the South Carolina Lowcountry, was actually in Todd's blood from an early age. He grew up in Charleston, SC, watching his mother navigate an earlier generation of the television industry. He watched as she made a living writing scripts and copy for television, while starring in local commercials, radio spots and televisions shows. Todd was hooked on the excitement of television during his high school years, carrying cameras and equipment along the sidelines of Citadel football games, shooting highlight sports footage for the Coaches Show.
Todd decided to pursue a career in the industry. After graduating from USC, he started as a news videographer for CBS station WCSC-TV in Charleston. He later moved to a larger market at the ABC station, WJXX-TV, in Jacksonville, FL. He returned home to become the Chief Photographer for WCBD in 1999.
In 2002, Todd and his wife wife, Catherine, moved to Hilton Head Island, SC. He was recruited as Production Manager for WHHI-TV, the only local station in a booming resort market. His challenge was to help revamp the channel, providing the growing community with a source of vital information. During his time with WHHI, Todd recognized the power of video as a marketing tool to increase sales. He went on to join DVLS in Savannah as New Media Director, producing web-streaming videos for high-end real estate communities and developments. Meanwhile, he started Snemoo Productions to handle the increasing demand for freelance work. Snemoo Productions became a full-time passion for Todd in 2008.
Todd has shot everything from spot news to features to in-depth stories. He has covered both college and pro sports, and his diverse client list has included: CNN, ESPN, PBS, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, and PAULA DEEN.
