The Story of our LA and NY Video Production Agency.
We're a creative video production agency. Brands come to us directly to help them create videos from concept to final cut, and sometimes we partner with agency teams. Our direct clients like us because we're the whole package. And agencies like us because they know that they're getting fellow creative thinkers.
Our corporate and commercial clients include 11 Fortune 500s, and brands you know like BMW, AT&T, IBM, PepsiCo, UCLA, CapitalOne, and MasterCard. We also are known for the videos we make for smaller companies and organizations (including startups) that need to "look big".
We're based in Los Angeles and New York, and we service clients worldwide. Some of the recent US cities we've worked in include Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami.
No matter where you are, we work with you to create awesome videos, with an emphasis on story- even in our most slick, visual effects laden productions.
You know all those old dinosaur tv commercial production companies and corporate video companies? They don't "get it". What's "it"? The fact that the web- that digital- is king, now.
Well, we "get" it. Because we grew up in it. We helped create it. It is part of who we are, and always has been.
Why does this matter? First, because this has led to massive changes in the way we consume video. As important, how you tell stories through video is also changing. These days, authenticity is key. Nobody likes being yelled at, or 'sold to'. And yet, with the vast amount of video out there, you need to make sure that yours stands out with super-high production values. Your audience expects quality.
We work with our clients to create the kinds of video stories that resonate with their audiences, whether that audience is in the boardroom or the living room. Or, you know, on the train or in the air. Wherever. Whenever.
We have been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Toronto Star, St. Petersburg Times, on Japan's NHK Network, Discovery Channel, Fox, Time Magazine, Newsweek, and USA Today. Plus a lot of others.
Los Angeles, New York, and Beyond
We work all over the planet. But 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...
How did we get started? Thanks for asking! 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 and virtual reality, so did we. We did a lot of really cool web and VR stuff back then, 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 Story Continues
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 make their audiences take notice.
We plan to keep on creating stories that engage, educate, and entertain our clients' audiences- no matter what the medium.
