TSG Multimedia is a video production company based in the San Francisco Bay Area that specializes in:
- Promoting prototype rail fanning.
- Promoting model railroading.
- Preserving history.
Our main focus is currently on producing content for YouTube, but TSG Multimedia is also for hire if you need top-quality videography for your business or special event.
Because YouTube’s monetization scheme is subject to change at any time, we opened a Patreon page in 2018 with the intention of turning off all advertising on the YouTube channel once the monthly support levels become self-sustaining. You can help support TSG Multimedia for as little as 7 cents a day using Patreon’s recurring subscription service! Supporters get private behind-the-scenes information, as well as previews of some programs weeks before they are released to the public, so find out what you’ve been missing here: Become a Patron!
When TSG Multimedia was started in 1998, we focused mostly on corporate clients. We added wedding and other special event videography to the services offered within the first couple of years so we could diversify our income potential.
Our first railroad-themed video entitled “Caltrain 2005” was released in late 2005. Over the next ten years, we focused on producing video content published to portable media, such as DVDs and Blu-ray discs. As portable media’s popularity started to wane, we introduced the option of Digital Downloads to the catalog. Since 2015, we have focused more on YouTube as an avenue for our railroad-related and historical productions.
There have been some challenges and hurdles along the way, but since 2018, the YouTube channel’s popularity has doubled due to the introduction of bonafide experts, a wider variety of topics, and a renewed commitment to higher production value.
TSG Multimedia releases a railroad-related podcast every month, which is uploaded to iTunes and Google play in audio form, and to YouTube in video form. This program provides viewers with regular updates so they can get an idea about what kind of projects are in the works. It also provides us with an avenue for direct interaction with our viewers so we can keep an eye on what they’re thinking about and what they want to see from us.
