A Big “Thank You”
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: February 8, 2022
Today (February 8) marks one year to the day since the first stories were posted on The Full FX website. It was a time when we were looking forward to the pandemic petering out and a return to normal; one year on and…well you get the point!
More importantly, a project such as this can only succeed with the support of the industry, I noted at the time of launch the generous and heartfelt reaction of the industry to the closure of Profit & Loss and how Michelle and I, with Cindy, took this as encouragement that we would garner sufficient support for our venture.
Hoping for support and achieving it are two different things, of course, however thanks to the huge number of you who signed up for the weekly newsletter (there’s room for more still – tell your friends!) and those firms who have supported us financially through sponsorship and advertising, we have exceeded our own goals and are confident that the angst of all start-ups, surviving the first 18 months, is already behind us.
To avoid the risk of missing a supporting firm we will not list everyone here (Michelle is better at that sort of thing than I), however we would say that what the short break last year and the first year of operation has brought home to me is how innovative ideas continue to emerge from this industry – and In am proud that so many of our supporters are at the forefront of innovation.
So with heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to establishing The Full FX in the industry’s fabric, onward to Year Two – we hope it is as much fun as Year One!
