About Farish Media
Farish Media began as The Farish Agency in the early 1980s in Myrtle Beach, SC. By his mid 20’s, owner Mason Farish was writing, shooting, directing, producing and even hosting local TV programming and commercials and was a morning radio show host. The Farish Agency went through several re-incarnations over the years as it moved about the southeast, finally settling in Hawaii in 1994. One thing hasn’t changed – our commitment to every client that offers us the privilege of working with them. Our secret? Long time dedicated production partners who we also consider some of our closest friends. This allows us to offer you an unprecedented guarantee of production quality each and every time.
Our mission is three-fold:
- Become an instant hit with you. We’ll do a lot of the thinking for you.
- Provide nothing less than a powerful, superior production done right the first time.
- Create an experience of aloha that will retain you as our client for many years.
