The Weidenhammer Creative team is growing again! When we acquired Shufflebox Productions in early January, we also acquired all four of their team members. While they’ll be working out of their existing office in Kutztown, PA until March, they’re still fully members of the creative team. We can’t wait to have them working out of our office with us later in the year. Welcome to the team our newest Weidenhammer employees; John, Matt, Ross, and Jimmy!
John Guarino, the former owner of Shufflebox Productions, now the manager of Video and Photo Services for Weidenhammer Creative comes to us with over 16 years of industry experience. Having started producing and shooting videos since he was in high school, his career includes Best of Show Addy awards and videos for international brands. The founder of Shufflebox, he explained that “it was created to be an excellent resource for our clients, with great video production—plain and simple. We love what we do and the technology and stories we get to create for their clients.” He is excited that he and his team will be joining an even bigger creative team, helping Weidenhammer’s clients dive into videos to help their businesses succeed.
A major Ghostbusters fan, John likes spending time with his family, playing video games, and researching new video gear. He’s also a huge hockey nut, loving the Flyers and Phantoms.
Matt Liotti, joins the team as Weidenhammer’s Video Producer. Matt has been creating and producing video since he was 13 years old, with experience across the industry. Matt’s created video for international brands like Volkswagen and has shot for high-profile artists like the Roots.

Emily Poché, Weidenhammer’s Project Manager, says “I’m very excited that we’re bringing Matt onto the team. Every time I’ve worked with him in the past, he’s been a phenomenal resource for our clients and delivers amazing videos.”
When Matt’s not producing videos, he’s a fan of the Harry Potter series and enjoys spending time with his son. Matt also has an affinity for Apple products, and has owned every generation of the iPhone ever produced.
