Good Work with Good Humans

The most exciting discoveries are the ones we make in people. Uniting with partners from varied backgrounds and life experiences isn’t just the right thing to do; it enhances our understanding, strengthens our work, and more accurately reflects the world we share. As a proud woman-owned business, we are committed to gender equality in all our crews, and diversity both on-screen and behind the camera. For us, it’s about more than inclusion; it’s about celebration! We live our words by investing both time and sponsorship in causes from Black women in tech to LGBTQ+ youth programming, and we are so pumped to contribute to those making an impact.

Southern Maine Community College

ANTHEM

To celebrate their 75th anniversary, Southern Maine Community College wanted to pay homage to their legacy while driving enrollment. The resulting campaign, created in collaboration with Ethos Marketing and Design, used archival footage along with contemporary footage to draw parallels between their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the founding of the institution as a response to the needs of veterans returning from WW2.

Oakhurst Dairy "Athletes"

AD CAMPAIGN

With the growing popularity of sports drinks and plant-based milks, the nutritional value of dairy is sometimes overshadowed. Celebrating how Oakhurst chocolate milk fuels the determination of young athletes, this series produced in collaboration with our friends at Ethos Marketing was an opportunity to meet some inspiring kids and earned us front-row seats to see them do what they love.

Damnationland

FILM SERIES

Before 2010, it was easy to see that the burgeoning filmmaking community in Maine deserved a forum, so we created Damnationland. Over a decade later, it has become the largest event for that community, drawing a thousand fans to the State Theatre every October to experience new genre work by the up-and-coming moviemakers from Maine.

Neptune is an emotionally charged coming of age story, shot entirely in Maine with Maine talent and crew.

Wild Blueberries

AD CAMPAIGN

We love it when creative gets weird, so when Ethos Marketing & Design approached us about a series of absurd commercials for Wild Blueberries of Maine we were all in. With the goal of incentivizing shoppers to buy Wild over conventional blueberries, our team packed a funny punch with elaborate art direction and bear wrangling (Okay, it’s a guy in a suit).

Maine Mineral and Gem Museum

EXHIBIT CONTENT

Tasked with putting a remote museum in Western Maine on the Map, we collaborated with Paulus Design Group to help bring a world-class collection of meteorites, gems, and minerals to life. Interactive kiosks, a 1950s “mining blast”, an immersive projection mapped meteorite experience and much more, all help make MMGM a destination to Put on your ‘museums to visit before you die’ list.” – Bair and Wright, Boston Globe 2019.

Nemo "Osmo"

MARKETING CAMPAIGN & CUTDOWN EXAMPLE

Nemo is an outdoor equipment manufacturer with a passion for designing award-winning products as sustainably as possible. The opportunity to help them roll out their revolutionary Osmo fabric was a chance for us to buddy up with a rapidly growing outdoor brand we believe in, flex a little motionGFX muscle and learn some big words like hydrostatic equilibrium while we were at it.

IDEXX "Neo"

MARKETING CAMPAIGN

With the launch of a new proprietary software that optimizes veterinary practice management, IDEXX faced the challenge of demonstrating the Neo Veterinary Software app in terms of real-world value. By generating graphic overlays of the simplified UI married with footage of real vets we were able to offer clear examples of how Neo’s user-friendly features and new mobile workflow make life easier for veterinarians and the pet parents they serve. All while working with the best talent you can ask for: DOGS!

Takeoff "The Future of eGrocery"

360 VIDEO + SOCIAL MEDIA AD

Takeoff Technologies makes automated grocery distribution machines – think a compressed warehouse full of robots (the friendly kind) – but they were challenged with communicating the scope and capabilities of their installations. To put potential customers right in the action, we worked with Takeoff to create a 360 degree immersive tour of their facility in Chicopee, Massachusetts, that could be uploaded to an Oculus headset and give their clients a true look at how their innovative technology functions.
