We all know how annoying it can be having to come in weekends and stay late every night. No employee wants to do that and no manager wants to ask their team to put off their personal life to come in on off hours. It’s all about the work / life balance. But we also know how difficult it can be to get approvals to bring in another full time employee when the workload to keep them billable might not be consistent. That’s where we can step in and help. We can jump onto projects you might need an extra hand with and when it’s done, we just head out and go back to our other client projects. You get the help you need, without having to worry about paying for the slow times.
We are a storytelling production collective that focuses on what drives the passion of the viewer. We’ve created film for brands & agencies like Coca-Cola, Nabisco, P&G, McDonald’s, LIDS, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Momentum Worldwide, HAVI, The Marketing Store, & CD One Price Cleaners.
We pride ourselves on being like an extension of your own company. Not every business can afford to have video services in house, but with us on your side, it’s as if you do. We handle all aspects of filmmaking from preproduction and scripting through production and post. If you already have in house services, we function as an additional resource for a lot of our clients. When the internal team is bogged down, we’re able to seamlessly step in and help get the work done.
Paylocity is a Human Capital Management company you’ve probably never heard of. But, with nearly a half billion dollars in revenue and a team that doubles in size every few years they had some video needs. And we were there to help them out. At the start, we were the difacto in house video team. We worked with a number of groups within the company to get their story out in the most compelling way both internally and externally. We even produced a documentary short for their 20th anniversary, flying around the country and telling the Paylocity story through over 50 employee’s testimonials.
As their video needs grew, they decided to create an internal video team. That team focusses on educational videos that they sell to their clients through a learning channel. But, as you know, internal teams get bogged down and overworked. So we’re still there to help. Whether we’re taking old learning videos and bringing them up to date or interfacing with Paylocity’s clients to tell their story about how the software works for them, we’re an important part of their team and they know we’re only a phone call away when they get busy.
Vein Clinics of America has an internal video person, but one person isn’t enough to handle all the work they need to do. While they have time to go out and film the doctors they work with and create great content, they don’t always have time to finish that themselves. Imagine coming back from filming 40 doctors and one person having to then edit all that, go through revisions, tweak audio and color, in addition to the regular work you need to get done. It’d mean working 24/7.
That’s where we step in. Vein Clinics is able to reach out to us and know they’re getting an extension of their team. We work long hours so they don’t have to. The best part for us? Their internal stakeholders don’t know the difference. We’re able to help our client look good, while maintaining the same level of final product they’re used to seeing. They look like superman for being able to execute on such a large scale and that’s a win win for everyone.
