1/ We’re a little different

What sets us apart is our distinctive aesthetic and our understanding of communications. Our own story began as an integrated part of an advertising agency – a background that gives us a unique edge. We’re thinkers that understand and value communication strategies, ideas and execution style. We’re advertising people with video cameras. Let us tell your story.

We’re a small, nimble and responsive company. We’re as passionate about sticking to budgets and timelines as we are about doing the best production possible. And our multi-skilled team means more production for less.

“Some of the view rates and % viewed metrics are the best we have ever seen in the financial sector. This indicates strong awareness and high production quality of video content.”

Great job all around and the two of you and your teams did a great job, and always do, THANK YOU!

Not only is their level of professionalism undisputed, but their artistic flair, their insight into what they present, their work ethic and commitment to deliver on deadlines, is unmatched in any other team I have worked with.

As an agency they just “get it”! I have worked with countless agencies and studios but what makes this team stand out is that they have ALWAYS gone above and beyond the call of duty.

I will not trust any other creative company to deliver on any of my deliverables! I have seen them pull off a significant job in 3 days. Unheard of. You cannot go wrong with this team. I have worked on a few projects with the team and are blown away EVERY TIME.

I am therefore happy to recommend Mr Stein for his mix of creative and diplomatic skills, which has produced three very sound documentary films for CDKN on climate change, environment and development issues.

The team is creative, flexible, responsive and well organized. All projects have been well executed thus far and we look forward to ongoing collaboration…
