How do you raise $500K to produce a film that everyone loves, but no one wants to finance? That was the question posed by our first project Premium. We decided to write a check on our own account called “creative hustle”, designed proposals and newsletters, produced short films, commercials, and marketing videos, staged live events, and appealed to our community for support. Creativity collided with commerce as we identified our competitive edge — communicating to any audience.
This is what we offer to you.
To create compelling content of the highest quality at the most affordable price.
A camera is a camera until you put it in the hands of an artist. If you’re serious about your brand, you value the experience and execution of experts. Our creative collaboration ensures that by the time we grab our tools, the blueprint of your story has been designed to engage your audience in the most entertaining and effective way possible.
You keep doing what you’ve done to get to this point. We’ll be your partner in the journey to the next level.
Check out our core services and get started with your Creative Brief below.
Whether you need a single piece of content or you’re looking for a suite of videos to populate a Social Media Campaign, our Premium Video Content is the next level of storytelling. Anyone can make something look good with today’s technology, but the ability to craft a story and connect with your audience demands more than equipment. It requires know-how.
Our Premium Video Content is designed to engage your social media platforms. Our Storytelling Strategies ensure that the authenticity of the conversation extends for the life of your Social Media Campaign. Once people are talking, we make sure they are heard.
From our Creative Brief to our first conversations with you, we work to get an understanding of who you are, what you do, and what your goals are. From there, we identify the audience and craft a variety of content to promote engagement and further your initiatives. Great stories don’t tell themselves.
We offer a variety of HD video and film camera rentals, including the industry leading RED Epic-X. We also have state of the art lighting, grip, and sound gear, as well as artisans available for support. The right tools of the trade make all the difference. We offer them to you.
