History Lesson #WBW

Al Schmidt was an Iowa college sophomore when the idea hit. In 1985, he and a partner started Metro Video. The two-person team ran their video production company out of a small rented office space.

In 2000, Metro Video — renamed Metro Studios — moved into a 12,000 square-foot custom-built facility in Hiawatha, Iowa. Today, 30 years later, Metro Studios can meet all your professional marketing and advertising needs. We provide custom websites and strategic marketing plans for businesses and organizations across the nation.

Lean in. Closer...

A little closer still. We have a secret. Promise you won't tell? This is just between Metro Studios and you, right? Good. We've been humble for too long. We've been afraid to toot our own horn. We've been doing amazing things at Metro Studios, but not sharing them like we should. Ultimately, our silence hurts you: our current and potential clients. You can't ask us to design, write, create, plan, or execute stuff we don't tell you about.

Lean back. Farther...
