Green City Growers

Green City Growers converts unused commercial and residential spaces into urban farms. They grow farms on the rooftops of grocery stores, and even on Fenway Park! The promotional video featured four of their farms. We got to see such cool stuff over the course of this video production and were very inspired by their work.

Bay Path – Program Directors

Not all of our work is for TV, we do internal videos and recruiting videos for a more targeted audience as well. This video production is a series of interviews featuring Program Directors from Baypath University. We shot seven interviews with the program directors in a very limited space. It can be tricky to make one room look like three different scenes… but we like a good challenge in production!

MGM

Since working with the City of Springfield on their promotional video, we have continued working on other projects with them. They called on us for some drone footage of the construction happening in the city. Chris went to the top of what will be the new MGM parking garage to fly the drone and capture the construction sites.

Business Expo

We have been attending the Business West Business Expo for the last few years. We get a booth, do some networking, and create a short promotional video for the event. This year Chris was invited to be a speaker and give a presentation. Over the years he has turned down opportunities like this… mainly because of his busy schedule. But this time, he said yes. And then decided to share a bit about the other reason he declines these offers. Fear.

After giving his presentation at this year’s Expo, Chris created a short social media based video letting people in on his secret fear of public speaking and encourages anyone experiencing the same fear to embrace the challenge, move through the fear and GROW.

Pelican

We were recently hired by a company whose products we are very familiar with. Pelican.

The 40 year old company reigns as the global leader in both high-performance protective cases and advanced portable lighting systems. We stand by their products and were happy to work with them on this corporate video production.

Bay Path – What If?

This was a fun one… complex… but fun!

We shot in SEVEN different locations for this 30 second spot. We also created a 60 second version for them as well… It’s always nice to be able to create longer versions when we capture THAT much great content. It’s perfect for social media.

Desmond

It’s not often we are able to find time to create cool videos for ourselves, we plan to do MUCH more of that moving forward. And this is a great example of why. The Desmond video is our most watched, liked and shared video on social media to date.

Chris was intrigued by this street dancer and felt compelled to make a badass video featuring him.

We made a plan to have him come into the studio and that was about the extent of pre-production on that! Chris set up a really cool shot, blacked out with some dramatic spot lighting. We gave him the stage and he opened up and shared more than we expected. It was courageous of him and we really respected that.

We went on to have him dance in front of the green screen. This allowed for us to put Desmond into the worlds he might imagine he’s dancing in rather than just out on the street.

It was fun to just open the creative flood gates and let art take it’s course.

Studio

We were so excited to make the move into our new space! We had a large video production studio in Chicopee and an office with a beautiful view downtown Springfield…. but we really needed to combine the two and call one place home.

We found our new studio right over the bridge in West Springfield on Memorial Avenue. It is perfect for in-house video productions and video editing sessions. We have a giant green screen, large back drops and a beautiful edit bay. We encourage our clients to come take a look around and are more than welcome to come sit in on a video editing session.

We put a lot of love into our new home as we do all of our work. Come check it out!
