this is why we vote

“Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.”  So we decided to take action by helping New Era Colorado create a short film to mobilize young voters to exercise their right to vote.  We teamed up with Denver’s Youth Poet Laureate to bring the conversations back to the issues and focus on real change.  The video was distributed by Upworthy and was viewed over a million times.

“If you need inspiration to show up and vote this fall, this is it.”
— Upworthy

wyoming department of corrections

We partnered with Wyoming-based marketing agency Warehouse Twenty One to create a filmic recruitment tool for the Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC). Shooting at locations across Wyoming, we told the personal, real-life stories of correctional officers to depict what it’s like to live in the state and build a career with the WDOC. The film has redefined the WDOC brand and anchors their recruiting efforts on the department’s redesigned website (www.wdoc.jobs). WDOC staff have received the film as a portrait of the work they do for Wyoming.

hillary for america

A 12 year old girl named Olivia wrote an earnest letter to Hillary Clinton about her hopes, her challenges, and her desire to see a woman become president. We spent the afternoon with this darling future constituent and captured the journey from Olivia’s home to the Hillary for America HQ in Brooklyn Heights where she wanted to volunteer. We knew that the story of one could be an artful way to share the message of Secretary Clinton’s policy positions on education and equality.


Cognoscenti is an adventure travel startup that brought us on board while preparing to launch their elite Boulder-based cycling trips.  We partnered with the branding brilliance of Angry + Bovine to create a brand video that seamlessly integrated into their shiny new site.  Inspiring story + great design = experiences sold.

tedx boulder

We created an opening video to kick off TEDx Boulder.  Our aim was to create a tribute to our unique & lively community that would inspire the 2,000 attendees, as well as online audiences following the success of the event.  We filmed our favorite things about Boulder, identified their brand ambassadors, and made sure it entertained the right crowd.

annie’s + foodcorps

Annie’s is a leading organics brand that knows the importance of nourishing foods and giving back. FoodCorps is an organization that teaches kids about healthy food by building school gardens and bringing high-quality local food into public school cafeterias. Annie’s is a ‘seed funder’ for FoodCorps and its network of passionate leaders who connect kids to real food. We were tasked with creating a lighthearted video to highlight their inspiring partnership by showing that kids can have fun while preparing and eating healthy food.

boulder international film festival

The Boulder International Film Festival approached us to collaborate with the Academy Award-winning team behind the documentary The Cove to create a dynamic short film to promote the film Racing Extinction and the ‘Bond Tesla’ that paid a visit to Colorado.  The promo was a hit with the festival audience and the footage ended up in the final cut of the film.
