Bear Mountain Group

Bear Mountain Group is a collective of talented people: interactive designers, coders, musicians, filmmakers, sound editors, and graphic artists collaborating and forming task-oriented teams to accomplish projects in both new and traditional media.

The Group was founded by John Prusinski, former CEO of S2N Media, Inc., a company he helped bring to prominence in the early days of the Web.  S2N Media provided a new model for interactive production, earning a stellar reputation building some of the first rich media websites for museums and academic institutions, including the Smithsonian, the Koshland Science Museum of the National Academies of Science, and the National Science Foundation.  John’s expertise helped the company win several Webby Awards, the highest honor for website production, and expanded their portfolio to include not only online work but also 3D animation for film and museum installations, and 2D animation and interactive productions for educational software, such as a series of award-winning applications for Hooked on Phonics and Sylvan Learning.

The team draws on the skills of the highly accomplished members of the Group:
