Often the best question we can ask about your marketing video is, “What can we leave out?”

Abbott Diabetes Care

Abbott needed a video to showcase the unique features of their Precision brand blood glucose monitoring system.

The video had to engage an international audience viewing it on a noisy trade show floor, where sound may not be audible.

We designed a wordless video to capture the ease of use, accuracy, speed, and freedom afforded by the new product. It was produced in five versions for use in markets throughout the world.

Friends of the San Francisco Public Library

The Friends of the San Francisco Library needed to promote their biggest fundraising event of the year with a short video for their website and B-roll for local broadcast stations.

Capture the enormous scope of the event and the large, enthusiastic crowds.

We used time-lapse photography set to a driving, energetic musical score to compress the activities of the gigantic 3-day sale into a few short minutes of video.

Our challenge was to communicate the strategic vision for the company in the coming year. We chose to combine interviews with key company leaders and patients with the visual story of their product benefits.

The video was greeted with such enthusiasm that the sales and marketing team asked for it to be projected for a second time at the national meeting.

Rudolph and Sletten

Building Information Modeling merges a diverse set of digital data to create an evolving, parametric model of a building project, helping to reduce costs, streamline project delivery, and increase communication among team members. Rudolph and Sletten needed a corporate marketing video to explain and promote Building Information Modeling (BIM) to potential clients and collaborators.

Building information modeling is a vaguely defined set of software tools and techniques. We were tasked with developing and writing a clear introduction to BIM, drawing on a multitude of new and archival video and animation.

The Moose directed Rudolph and Sletten’s partner, View By View, in the production of animated graphics and 3D stills for the video. Aerial photos, time-lapse photography and candid interviews with key owners, architects, subcontractors, and company directors were also used to clearly explain BIM and its successful application to large building projects.

Rudolph and Sletten is dedicated to using BIM technologies to maintain their position as a leading, innovative contractor.  Our video effectively communicates to both first-time clients and to industry specialists, and helps Rudolph and Sletten remain competitive in the construction industry.

Craftsman

RSS Architecture is a rare architectural firm: the company’s architect/designers are also highly skilled wood and metal workers. Their detailed understanding of how detailed architectural elements are manufactured gives the them a deep insight into designing them.

RSS Architecture / Modesto Architecture Festival

Flying Moose Pictures collaborated with RSS Architecture to design and produce a marketing video to highlight the unique design and manufacturing skills at the company.

Demolition, construction, and hand carving of wooden architectural details all take time. Our challenge was to present these painstaking processes, as well as the philosophy behind them, in a short marketing video.

Flying Moose had the opportunity to shoot the RSS Architecture team at work on the remodeling of a nondescript suburban house into a sophisticated craftsman style home.

We made extensive use of time-lapse videography to engage the viewer and communicate an overview of the transformation.

Location footage was combined with the time-lapse video, interviews, and still photography to produce a story that highlighted RSS’s hands-on approach and commitment to the blend of design and craft.

The documentary was completed for the Modesto Architectural Film Festival and is used by RSS to promote their unique skills and services.

Alcatel-Lucent is a global innovator in IP and cloud networking and ultra-broadband access.

Alcatel-Lucent

Alcatel-Lucent needed to launch the FlexPath 3, the world’s first 400GB network processor. Our task was to design a short video to communicate that the company’s commitment to producing their own custom silicon chip resulted in a device that was faster, smarter, and greener than the competition.

We developed an interview strategy and conversed with core members of the Alcatel-Lucent engineering team, capturing key messages about the breakthrough device, and focusing the video on the differentiators that separate FP3 technology from Alcatel-Lucent’s competitors.

Basil Alwan, President of the IP division, was placed in front of a green landscape to visually communicate the “green” component of the marketing video – a fifty-percent power savings inherent in the new processor design.

We captured compelling, engaging interviews from our engineer interviewees.. The product launch was a great success. We continue to partner with Alcatel-Lucent, promote their lead edge technology, and assist them in gaining market share.

Live Painting Performance: Wax on Glass

bfWtachJDLo

Originally from Washington, DC, Charlie co-founded the Chicago-based visual theater company Local Infinities, creating 11 materials-based visual performances over 7 years, featuring 800 lbs of dirt, 100 gallons of water, or dipping people in giant vats of wax. Local Infinities performed at Oerel international theater festival in the Netherlands and Kyiv Travnevy in Ukraine, and curated international performance series at Links Hall in Chicago.

Charlie levin

Charlie Levin makes performances, interactive paintings, and installations exploring questions of complexity, identity, and perception. Her innovative interactive wax paintings use transparency, light, and sensors to create body-art experiences bridging digital and analog experience.

Charlie was invited to perform at the San Francisco Arts Festival and ask Flying Moose Pictures to design and produce a marketing video.

In this unique and intimate performance, a painting comes to life in response to a text read aloud by the audience. Starting with a large, clear piece of glass, Levin uses melted wax to create illuminated images that change with the direction and intensity of light. Flying Moose had to design a plan to capture the kinetic painting process within tight time constraints as the wax was heated, applied, and cooled into a solid painting.

Charlie used our marketing video to attract a sold out crowd to her performances at the San Francisco Arts Festival. We captured that performance as well and produced video documentation that she will use for grant application and for her web site.

Love Sick Promo

r3w3T-1WuKI

Based on the ancient Hebrew text, “The Song of Songs” Love Sick fuses a live concert experience with story and character to create one woman’s journey through a relentless and fervent love affair—and her gradual descent into madness. Set against a backdrop of modern-day Tel-Aviv, and a Jerusalem unbound by time, the production features Ofra Daniel and celebrated world-musician Ali Paris.

http://lovesickmusical.com/

We previewed the show in advance of our shoot and discovered that the staging of the musical was complex. The small stage was a deep thrust, meaning that audience (and cameras) would appear in many shots. Characters danced in tight circles, musicians and actors performed high above the stage on a scaffold and walked into and behind the audience. Lighting changed radically from scenes to scenes. We designed a detailed plan for our coverage using 4 cameras.

The world premiere performance of Love Sick won glowing reviews, including the San Francisco Chronicles Highest Rating. We produced several edits of our performance documentation video; a short sizzle reel, a 5-minute trailer, and a 2 hour cut of the full show. The production company is using the videos to promote the show and schedule future productions.

Malcolm Drilling Marketing Video

xaC_Et8HAmk

Malcolm Drilling Company is a preeminent specialty foundation contractor serving a global market.

Malcolm Drilling

Malcolm Drilling needed a fast way to differentiate its specialty Foundation business when presenting to prospective clients.  They asked Flying Moose to produce a corporate marketing video that would introduce the wide variety of services they offer, the expertise of their employees, and their vast inventory of leading edge technology and equipment.

Many of Malcolm’s prospective customers treat the specialty foundation business as a commodity, ignoring the value of design engineering expertise and experience. Malcolm needed to communicate the value of their design engineering skills that differentiate them from their competition.

Script development focused on profiling the company’s competencies, their high profile, signature construction projects, and challenging prospective customer’s preconceived notions of the company.

Malcolm Drilling began using the video in presentations even before it was completed. The corporate marketing video has become an essential tool in their proposal process.

PivotLink produced a Business Intelligence Platform designed for business users to quickly explore data to make decisions with limited IT involvement. In 2013 the company was purchased by Francisco Partners and the PivotLink technology is now part of the Saas markleting platform, SmartFocus.

PivotLink / SmartFocus

The PivotLink Business Intelligence Platform is designed for business users to quickly explore data to make decisions with limited IT involvement. Flying Moose Pictures was asked to write and produce a fun, fictional, client testimonial video demonstrating how the PivotLink software platform can lead to smarter and more profitable business decisions by using social media analytics.

The depth and power of the PivotLink software platform, as well as its flexibility, without the need for programming, were not widely known to potential customers. We needed to engage small businesses with a realistic case study that illustrated the benefits of the PivotLink solution.

PivotLink used the customer testimonial video to market its products on their website and at trade shows.
