What we Create.

Web Commercial

This was an exciting Commercial that allowed us to flex our creative capabilities. We needed to tell a story that conveyed "Out of this world" to the viewer. We incorporated 3D Animated Aliens, Green Screen Production, a 50's theme set and costumes for Video as well as film quality coloring. This was one of our favorite commercials to date!

Product Demo Video

We were hired on to create a Product explainer video related to the assembly, testing, and convience of their device. We were able to utiize our large white cyc Studio A shooting room at Doodad Studios to do the production which made things convenient and made for a clean composition and overall classys shoot.

Short Film 2016

This was a great experience to shoot with some great talent. We made a goal to shoot a Short Form Film for 2016 and we wanted it to be Raw, Edgy, and have a cool story to boot. Our friend Eric (Actor / Writer) wrote the script and partnered with us in creating a 14 minutes Film that was shot in 24 hours! Not bad for a days worth of work!

Brand Video

We created a new twist in launching an upcoming fashion label. Using music video and movie cinematics as the CORE, We shot a lifestyle video that shows the vision of the brand in a whole new way, telling a story that evokes emotion and an experience. The final came out epic!

Music Video

We were brought in to shoot a Music Video called "Bring Me Light" for singer / DJ Aurey Napoleon. It was connected to a 4 part Teaser for a Book for client Isabel Adrian. We shot the video the same time the BRAVO network was shooting her new reality series "Euros of Hollywood" making the project that much more challenging. The final product got rave reviews!

Product Video

We were hired on to create a Explainer Product Motion Graphic Video without sound used for the CES Trade show. We incorporated 3D Animated Elements as well as motion graphic animations to create a complex universe of data streams and code within a tesseract. The video was streamed live at the event and visually stood out in the forum!

Web Commercial

We were hired to re-brand a 20 year old sport and take it to the 21st century. The story we went with was showing how slow traditional golf is by using a old man going through his golfing routine, and then speed things up by showing speedgolf and its intensity. We completed a successful launch of everything before TBS aired the event before the Masters.

Informational Videos

South Placer Municipal Utility District was looking to show the community the type of service they provide on a day to day basis. It was a get down and dirty production as we got our equipment in sewer systems, around big machinery, and giant dirt ditches shooting 6 Videos in all. The city was very pleased with the end results commissioning us for more!

Marketing Video

Brookfield is 1 of 4 Schools that we manage their Brand. We shot a video showcasing the lifestyle of Brookfield and its students. We also setup interviews with parents, teachers, and the principle that talks about what makes Brookfield special and different. The Video is used for both internet marketing and web.

TV Commercial

We were brought in as a 3rd Party to work with Scarywood Theme Parks Marketing Team to help produce a TV Spot for the new new amusement park haunted house experience. We collaborated with their team and ended up doing the full video edit, coloring, sound, and special effects in the commercial. The reviews came back that people actually thought it was a new horror film being released which is a sign we did our job!

Promotional Video

Working with a Non-Profit for a postive cause is always a great client to have. We were asked us to showcase what they do every day in all departments and let the public know its more then just pet adoption. We had the pleasure to interview owners with their adopted pets and get their stories. True love sometimes comes in the form of an animal, and saving one makes the bond that much stronger.

Tribute Video Trailer

We were hired by Motive Marketing to create a Viral Tribute Video Trailer that would be released before Memorial Day Weekend for a new Documentary Feature Film called The Hornet's Nest. We received the full movie and edited it down and added impactful photo motion graphics and film coloring to really drive the feeling of what our troops went through and to showcase the impact of the film. The viral video was well received!

2D Animated Video

We were hired to tell a story of a new product invention using 2D Animation. The client had envisioned using a old lady they came up with called Hagrid Harriet representing the old way of bates labeling and have a young pretty woman showing off the new invention. This was a fun quarky project as it allowed us to play around with stylized characters within an old classic office setting.

Motion Graphic Animated Video

This was a fun Animated Motion Graphic Video that was used as a Website Explainer Video to show the clients backend rewards system as well as how to achieve points in the real world.

Brand Commercial

We were tasked with creating a video that needed to appeal to the millenial generation as well as incorporate their brand into the process. So that is what we did, we casted good looking millenials and turned it into one big party!

3D Animation

We were commissioned to create a 3D animated simulation that would be used for a visual representation of the new Pebble beach highway project. Given just the basics of a top view PDF, we did everything in 3D from scratch within a tight deadline and achieved our objective based off client spec.

3D Animation

This was a 3D Animated Commercial we created for the thin and powerful campaign with DELL. Because computer engineers are normally associated with being nerdy and tiny, we made the twist of the actual main character (representing the new DELL computer) having super human stregnth within his thin frame.

Promotional Video

We were asked to shoot the Sac Metro 2nd Annual Golf Tournament. We wanted to convey through the video a sense of community, friendship, and fun. We shot the intro a separate day to get that fresh early morning feeling of golf and freedom. We were also able to take out our large drone for a aerial flyby in the beginning.

How to Video

This was a pretty straight forward 3D Animated Assembly Video for web. Client wanted it to be clean and to the point as there was not a lot of parts. We rendered out the sequences and then did an exploded view to give it some flare. We do on occassion get asked to do 3D animated prototypes as well.

Business Video

We shot a business video showing off the different printing services Iconic T-shirts provides. We wanted to show it is a hip, modern, artistic print shop. We used a lot of film burns and upbeat music to show off the shop and all its capabilities.

Internal Spec project created in 3d. The idea uses the concept of an accordion and dual monitor connectivity to have the ability to view larger resolutions in tablet form, but also collapse down to smart phone size and still have mobile functionality. Added features like pen attachment, game controller, & HD camera makes this the first true all in one handheld device.

The project encompassed a lot of our own capabilities that included producing, directing, writing, storyboarding, matte painting, green screen, music, motion graphics, and design to make a quite beautiful happy ending to a great project.

Isabel Adrian

Given the opportunity to work with such a creative mind made her a dream client. We were brought in to shoot a 4 part Teaser for the Release of her new Book. We shot the video the same time the BRAVO network was shooting her new reality series making the project that much more challenging. The final product though got rave reviews which will be shown on national TV.

Let me tell you, it's a process.



During the kick-off and discovery session, we aren’t just learning about business requirements. We are developing a collaborative relationship with you too!


“By failing to prepare, you prepare to fail.” Thanks Ben Franklin! We’ll work with you to lay out the dates and procedures for our undertaking.

Idea + Creativity


Do you have a script? How will you visually tell the story.. Understanding pacing, shot sequence, and flow. Together we’ll figure it out.

Asset Creation

Oh sweet eye-candy! At this point, your project starts to come to life and we start creating the digital assets, backdrops, special effects, and 3d elements that will work with the live action footage.


Video Production

We bring together actors, crew, locations, props, the right equipment and lighting to shoot an epic film.

Editing + Compositing

We take the video footage and digital assets and start telling a story through composition. Everything starts to come together.


A final shot is only as good as your colorist. Taking raw footage and digital assets and making them seamless is key. Then coloring it to create a mood and specific look is our overall goal.
