The Heart of our Video Agency

Video Production with Heart

We tell your story with heart. Today's audiences have a finely honed sense of authenticity, and they're looking for stories that resonate with them. When you tell your story with heart, it gets shared. It is remembered. And it is acted upon.

We Love What We Do

We love what we do, and we love working with our clients to help them succeed. We make award-winning TV and digital commercials, DRTV (direct response television), online videos, and high-quality corporate films. Our direct engagement clients like us because we're the whole package, and agencies like us because they know that they're getting fellow creative thinkers who see the big picture.

Los Angeles, New York, and Beyond

We began in Los Angeles, and quickly expanded to New York a few years later. Today, about half of our projects still come out of LA or New York, with the rest coming from clients located across the US and the world.

We’ve worked with clients from the UK, Canada, Switzerland, Spain, Australia, and China, to name a few.

Once Upon a Time

We were founded by web pioneer Patrick Ortman, who also created one of the Internet's first web design studios. When the fun stuff moved to video, we did too. We did a lot of cutting-edge web and VR stuff as a digital agency, and that spirit of discovery still drives us today.

Some of our Internet “firsts”:

  • The first live rock concert on the web
  • The web’s first multimedia news event
  • Groundbreaking VR for clients including Major League Baseball, Sprite, and the Olympics
  • Early mobisode and web series projects, shown on SprintTV, Blip, and Verizon VCast

The common thread in all the we've done, and all that we do today is this: we are all about helping our clients tell their stories in ways that connect with their audience, and get them to take notice.

We plan to keep on creating stories that engage, educate, and entertain our clients' audiences- no matter what the medium.
