UltiTech utilizes the staffing model of film and television production. That model maintains a small core staff to develop business strategy, supervise creative development, oversee marketing and finance, and manage projects. The company hires freelance creative personnel (writers, directors, cinematographers, art directors, and computer programmers) as needed for production. The freelance creative personnel under the direction of Mr. Comcowich are selected from established pools in major metropolitan areas. This approach assures that the talents of each creative person assigned to a project are well-suited to the needs of the project.
