Honoree Name: Manx Taiki Magyar
Company: Big Tree, Hyannis
Career background / highlights:
I studied film and video production in college. I fell in love with video making when I was in high school making any school project into a video project. Originally I wanted to be a video journalist for video game magazines (on their online platforms) when I was in high school. But in college, I fell in love with cinema and wanted to pursue a focus on cinematography and filmmaking. We have won various awards for video and were named Top 20 Companies to Watch in 2021 by Cape & Plymouth Business magazine.
Community commitment: Sandwich Arts Alliance Board, Cape Cod Young Professionals.
Favorite professional moment: In college, getting the opportunity to film a concert at House of Blues because I then realized the amazing opportunities you get through filmmaking. And it’s only gotten cooler!
