Writing a Script – It May Not Be Your Job Either May 17, 2018

The skills required for shooting and editing a professional video are generally recognized by most people as something not easily emulated without training, experience and professional equipment.

This does not mean there are not examples of fantastic work done by amateurs using home video options or even their phones. For the most part, the marketing professionals we work with know the value of having a professional team to create the best visual representation of their brands, even with the accessibility of quality equipment to anyone who wants to try it out.

The Teleprompter - Friend or Foe? May 09, 2018

In recent years, the ubiquitous teleprompter has often been in the news during political campaigns as it has somehow gotten caught up in a modern definition of machismo that demands the teleprompting politician be belittled by their hopeful challenger.

As we have seen when that challenger succeeds in displacing their rival, however, the teleprompter somehow remains on the scene as a trusted tool.

The Most Important Team on Your Video Project is YOUR Team April 19, 2018

In the agency world, it is sometimes tempting to believe that if our clients left us alone to give them our best work, we could deliver big results, have more fun, win awards and become the envy of our competitors. It is not unusual for a group of creative people to believe that everything is better when they are unleashed to let their creative energy change the world according to their imaginations.

How to Get the BEST from Your Video Agency April 05, 2018

Hire a Partner, Not a Vendor

If you’re a Marketing Manager, Marketing VP or in a similar role, it is likely you have experience working with all kinds of service providers. Depending on your work style, budget, and personal preferences, you might have worked with each provider to create every individual piece of your offering. Or you might have worked with a full-service agency that took the lead and coordinated the creation and integration of all the pieces for you.

More than your work style, the label you give service providers is an indicator of how successful you are. Is your service provider:

Production Spotlight: Building a 3D World February 28, 2018

Last fall, we were approached by an international tech company developing a delivery system for using blockchains in transactions. They wanted to create an animated marketing video centering around a shifting wave of code that transforms into a solid cityscape. The client was feeling a dystopian aesthetic and looking to keep color minimal, while also finding inspiration in the neon world of Tron. There weren't a lot of branding guidelines, so Art Director, Tanem Davidson, and Producer, Aaron Bollinger, took a dive deep into the creative.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year December 15, 2017

Around Thanksgiving, we received a last-minute request for a conference in early December. Most videos have a 4-8 week production timeline. This one would need to be delivered in a week and we jumped at the opportunity to make it all happen for a favorite client.

Our Managing Director, Jennifer O'Brien, would be the first to tell you that anything is possible in production. But something's got to give! A quick turnaround translates to fewer revisions cycles and less time for clients to gather feedback internally. Plus, having staff and contractors running on all cylinders can mean additional charges for rush services. In the end, our client loved the video (below) and we were happy with our work.

Still, think of the possibilities! What else could we have done with a month or more to brainstorm, collaborate, and finesse? If you need video for an upcoming event, reach out now! The sooner we know, the better!

Baby, it's cold outside! December 01, 2017

In celebration of the season, one of our favorite clients wanted to give employees a chance to share their workplace holiday stories.  The client wanted each video to be short enough to hold a viewer's attention on social media. They were also looking to incorporate some cheerful music and a touch of b-roll.  Check out one of the completed videos here:
