Acting-A-Part

Lights, camera, action! 

Looking to become the next big name in Hollywood?  Or do you think your child has what it takes to become the next Disney star?  With the help of Acting-A-Part Theater Company, your family’s dreams can become a reality!

HipNJ’s Chris La Forgia recently chatted with program founder and owner, Erika Lupo.  Erika says that her program can be summarized by her company’s slogan:  “Bridging the Gap From School Play to Broadway.”   From television to film, theater classes and more, Acting-A-Part provides all types of acting workshops that fits the student’s needs and desires.  Even if he or she doesn’t walk away a movie star, pupils develop self-confidence, discipline and teamwork skills, essential in succeeding on the “Great White Way” of life.

Acting-A-Part offers a variety of services, including summer camps and birthday parties.  Taking Acting-A-Part’s theater classes will show you or your child the ropes of what it takes to create a show-stopping production, while their film and TV workshops involve shooting on-location.  Students then get to enjoy seeing their work on the big screen, thanks to Acting-A-Part’s relationships with local movie theaters.

Conveniently locate in Ridgewood and Sparta, New Jersey, Erika is striving to make Acting-A-Part a household name around New Jersey and eventually, the country.

Bungalow

So, what does your dream closet look like? Picture it, then watch the video above…we’re sure the resemblance is keen.

Bungalow is an exclusive boutique located in downtown Millburn, NJ that is filled with fabulous fashion finds that are guaranteed to fit your style.  HipNJ’s Gina La Morte visited the boutique, where she spoke with the store’s owner, Eve Rosenzweig-Golden, to gleam more insight into her chic inspiration.

Since its inception in 2008, Bungalow has quickly become the go-to style destination.  Due to Eve’s extensive background in the industry (where she worked as a fashion editor and stylist), every piece in Bungalow’s collection is personally picked through a careful eye.  Day, night, work, or casual wear, Bungalow provides it all and in great taste.

Not only is Bungalow a fashionista’s dream closet, but they ship too!  Their online store rounds up the best fashion items every season & offer them in limited quantities for an exclusive online boutique experience. This allows them to offer fresh merchandise on a continuous basis.

8fold Integrated Creative Works

Everyday is filled with endless opportunities and possibilities. There is always something new popping up in the world around us, and there is always another company opening its doors with the hope of a bountiful future.  8Fold Integrated Creative Works is that stepping-stone which leads those driven hopefuls down the right path towards triumph.

8fold is a Morristown, NJ-based, client-driven “8gency” that focuses on giving their clients the right tools to bring their branding and marketing to life. HipNJ’s Melisa LaTour sat down with Jennifer LoBianco, founder of 8fold, and discussed how her company has helped numerous New Jersey businesses achieve maximum results.

Jennifer expressed the three most important factors 8fold takes into consideration when working on a marketing campaign:  Knowing the customer/audience; identifying and understanding the competition; and measuring company traffic.  By arming themselves with this information, and integrating creative thinking and problem solving into their strategies, 8fold charters the most direct path to prosperity.

One of 8fold’s many success stories is Crossfit of Cranford, NJ (where this interview took place); they doubled in size in just a year and a half after coming on board with Jennifer and her partner, Brad Leszczynski.

So if you’re looking for your business to get to the top and stay there, visit 8foldworks.com for the best brand strategists in the business.
