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….

Just a taste February 9, 2018

Something pretty special about our internship program is that we provide hands-on editing experience under the guidance of our team of editors and producers.
One of our current interns Chilli Sereethoranakul recently teamed up with Pyramide Producer, Sameen Davidson, to create sizzle reels for two of the types of video we offer: animation and demo/screen capture. Here are her videos:
Shayna Lovell, our intern whose work we showcased last week, also put together sizzle reels for three other types of video: on-location testimonials,…

Pyramide owners are obsessed with Seattle-based intimates company TomboyX. Not only do they make great intimate apparel, but they stand for something.  They are a local business with a mission to make “underwear that any body could feel comfortable in, regardless of where they [fall] on the size or gender spectrum.” Check out their top 6 best movies to watch in your underwear!  We figured you probably already guessed numero uno…

Social Redux February 2, 2018

One of the great things about our internship program is that we provide hands-on editing experience under the guidance of our team of editors and artists.
We recently asked one of our current interns, Shayna Lovell, to recut one of the socials we released around the new year, and to utilize any other existing footage to create a whole new video.  Shayna had creative control over this exercise and worked with the original Producer, Mindie Lind, to reimagine how the footage could be utilized….

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….

Baby, it’s cold outside! December 1, 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:

Production Spotlight: Banking on Animation November 1, 2017

Pyramide Producer, Mindie Lind, recently paired up with Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) to create an animated video for their Community Banking Month Conference.
Our clients wanted to illustrate the benefits of and visioning around community banking. They also wanted to distinguish community banks from mega banks in a fun, engaging, and easy to watch video.  To help them achieve these goals, we focused on highlighting the closeness of community and made sure that the design elements related to community banking were bright,…

Pyramide Flying High October 10, 2017

You might not know this, but we’ll travel around the world for you!
As a Pyramide Producer, I just returned from San Francisco (that’s me and a nice goodbye shot of Mt. Rainier!) where I helped a client record some training modules at their offices there. Most of their trainers on this project live and work in the Bay Area, so it made good sense to have me join them and saved everyone else a trip up to Seattle. I brought all the equipment they needed so their subject matter experts could relax and focus on their material….

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery August 25, 2017

Silicon Valley is pretty popular around our office. I binge watched Season 1 last weekend and Season 2 this week. Zero regrets.
The show is chock full of inside jokes for those of us working in tech, at start-ups, or with the big players in the field. And, in a few special episodes, you’ll see corporate video represented. It’s shamefully fun for us, but also a very real reminder: most people have no idea what we do. Many think making a corporate video consists of stringing together industry jargon,…

Yes, and… August 18, 2017

Pyramide’s Managing Director, Jennifer O’Brien, is a die-hard theatre kid who encourages staff to approach business like the improv exercise Yes, and… In this game, participants accept what another participant has said (yes) and then expand upon that line of thinking (and). It’s a great mindset to have going into team brainstorms or client meetings because it helps foster effective collaboration. It teaches you to check knee-jerk responses and helps you avoid taking off in another direction.
Jen also has 3 guidelines she lives by and shares with Pyramide Producers:
