Our scalable process is customized for each client and each project to ensure that our content directly meets the goals of the business.

case studies

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we partnered with the third largest school system in North Carolina to create online learning content at a rapid pace for the Fall 2020 semester. With only a 7-day start-up time, we scripted, filmed, edited and uploaded approximately 300 lesson videos for language arts in grades K-5 in just 10 weeks, delivering up to 45 lesson videos per week.

The IDEATE Method is an empirically proven method to generate high-potential ideas for new entrepreneurial ventures. We partnered with the method’s creators, Dan Cohen and Greg Pool of Wake Forest University and Heidi Neck of Babson College, to adapt their hardcopy book, The IDEATE Method: Identifying High-Potential Entrepreneurial Ideas, and in-person university teaching to a fully virtual course via Teachable that is available to everyone. Launching Spring 2021.

the ideate method

We worked with a public school system to create a library of over 70 videos for technical training in carpentry and automotive skills. We began by identifying the key learning outcomes that students would be tested on, and translated the relevant textbook content into easy-to-follow and dynamic video tutorials. We then established a visual style that both supports the learning outcomes and keeps students engaged while viewing. We completed filming within two weeks and delivered the final edits in under four weeks.

Technical Tutorials

what our clients say

"It's not just video production. It's the full package of what they offer that I've been really impressed with and really value. After our first engagement, we just kept giving them more and more and more, because we continue to be impressed with the work that they're doing."
