Compelling storytelling is key to articulating your message, promoting a product, or having an impact on an audience.

Here are examples where our Producing, Writing, Editing, and creative problem-solving

accomplishes this through various video forms.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA

WAKE UP: Earth Day is Every Day! – An appeal for local organic, sustainable, eco-friendly farming with Jennifer Saran, Carlos Santana, Narada Michael Walden, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. 

VOTE – Graham Nash's appeal for everyone to get out and vote, premiered on Rolling Stone: "To emphasize the message in the song, Nash tapped regular collaborator Andrew Thomas to make a video for “Vote” (Thomas previously helmed clips for Nash and David Crosby’s “Don’t Dig Here,” as well as Nash solo songs “Immigration Man,”

“Clear Blue Skies,” and “Almost Gone”). The visual collage is frank and unsparing about the current climate and the importance of voting."
