We make tv commercials, web videos, cinemagraphs, Vines, Instagrams and other types of content to help brands connect with their base. We're unique because we travel light, so we're nimble and keep costs down. We get a lot of repeat business from ad agencies once they discover that we can help them create great content for their brand. We are a "secret weapon" for many creative directors.
Are you an ad agency getting ready to pitch a new client? We can help you make content for the pitch that will land you the gig. Do you need fresh content for your facebook page? We can do that. Do you need a photo for a billboard or an ad? Do you need a video lookbook? A mini-doc? A TV commercial? We can help. We just love making things.
We have the tools and talent to do the work. We have a 10,000 sq ft studio based in Charlotte, NC with 2 editing suites, voice over booth, and multiple Hi-Definition camera packages in-house. We have the capacity to handle your project from concept to completion.
Creative thinkers, producers, art directors, and project managers who thrive on tackling creative challenges. We know how to ask and what to ask to uncover key insights that catapult your ideas to the next level. We have a proven track record of delivering exceptional results on time and on budget for our clients. We come from large and small agencies across the country where we have created brilliant work for brands like: Bo Jangles, Chic-fil-A, Billy Graham, Speed TV.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then we'd be out of work.
Positive attitude, a dose of charm, and all kinds of industry knowledge to website and video communication. Jesse is the ringleader for the creative team, and he spends his days architecting, developing and deploying projects. He also enjoys spending hours upon hours researching emerging marketing trends and understanding the dynamics of targeted communication. In his spare time he is supporting the local visual and performing arts through his studio space. It is hard to meet a more motivated and productive individual. We can only conclude that Jesse doesn’t sleep!

Salim has photographed projects around the world. In the fall of 2008, he spent three months in Oxford, England. While mainly working in independent films, Salim has a strong body of work in commercials, documentaries, and music videos as well. Regardless of the type of project, it is his goal as Director of Photography to create images that will not only tell the story, but that will affect the viewer on a subliminal level. At some point in his life, Salim wishes to own, breed and raise dragons, professionally.

He is always spot on and devastated only by his own critique in a push for excellence.
Visual design is to use visual elements like colors, images, and symbols to convey a message to its audience. Graphic treatment of elements is often perceived as the visual design. For many of our clients, we work with the marketing team to provide all the visual design elements within the campaign.
Video production is the process of converting an idea into a video under the management of the producer. The process involves creating a concept, script writing, finding locations for video shoots, hiring additional video crew, hiring cast, hiring director, shooting the production.
Post production is complete editing, color correction, motion graphics and the addition of music and sound. Most of us who are familiar with the process also understand that post is where we turn good performance into great work. We keep a bottle of magic dust to sprinkle each finished project with.
