A video to make you smile

A video to make you smile

We're now entering the fourth year of creating our "Smiles" videos. Above is Smiles 2016. We have a lot of fondness for the folks we work with, often because they are a great deal of fun. So it's not hard to go back through a year's footage and find plenty of nice moments to splice together and create a happy, joyful montage. Previous versions were 2015, 2014, and 2010. We hope this will make...

Heart Disease Awareness

  February is Heart Disease Awareness month. In light of this, we created another "Did You Know?" animation to offer a tip to help prevent this disease. And it begins with a smile.

How many kids in the U.S. can’t read?

How many kids in the U.S. can’t read?

This is the second in our Did You Know? series. For the fun of it, we decided to create 15-second (or less) animations to illustrate facts that catch our attention. We finished our first animation last week, about the amount of plastic Americans throw away. See that one here.

Do you know how many plastic bottles Americans throw away?

Do you know how many plastic bottles Americans throw away?

For fun, we have started to create mini-videos (15 seconds or less) on statistics that interest us. If you want to know how many plastic bottles Americans throw away (it's a lot), have a look!

Smiles and a New Website

  Almost exactly four years ago, I was archiving video footage and reviewing projects we had worked on. Watching some of the video, I was reminded of how much fun we have with our clients - there were quite a few shots of folks laughing and joking around (between takes, of course). On a whim, I decided to make a "Smiles Montage" that included some of our favorite expressions of happiness...

How to Fail in Style

 April 3, 2014 At a recent event on personal branding, a member of the audience asked, “How do you fail in style?”  What a fantastic question!  The speaker’s approach to answering was to give examples of moments of personal failure and then sum things up, tongue-in-cheek, saying, “But look how I turned out?!”   The Clark School, I recently discovered, has a wonderful answer to that...

Adele’s Rumour Has It, Performed by Explo

We're doing a series of marketing videos for Explo, which is kind of like a summer school but a lot more fun.  Kids can take a huge variety of classes that are all engaging, hands-on, and zero-pressure (no homework or grading).  And classroom time is balanced with activities, athletics, and trips. The high school kids are based at Yale University.  We were down there last week and popped our heads...

A Video to Make You Smile

Over the holiday break, I used a bit of quiet time to catch up on some office organization, which included archiving video footage from a number of different projects. While doing that, I happened to come across some outtakes with one client that made me laugh. Reflecting on this a bit, I realized that basically all of our clients have been a lot of fun, which is why we enjoy working with them...
