Book Trailers


We make excellent trailers, THEN we use our connections to get them seen.


The Obstacle is the Way

Ryan Holiday’s masterpiece needed an historical example to support it. We picked a story and ran with it, making a beautiful trailer, and helping his book sell very well as a result.

Mastery

Robert Green’s career capstone needed something with cinematic gravatas.  We pulled this together.  The trailer was spread on places like the Huffington Post, landing the book on the NYT best seller list.

The Bull of Heaven

Think it’s hard to do a broadcast commercial in 15 seconds or less?  We had that challenge and we’d like to think we nailed it. This broadcast spot was put on various financial networks.

Product Demo Videos


With video, you can start a conversation with prospects that quickly leads to a conversion.


JumpCloud

We wanted to make an introduction to JumpCloud that was entertaining as well as informational. It gives viewers a great impression of exactly what the service offers and what Jumpcloud is about.

Blab Predicts

Blab needed to credibly share exactly how their social media analytics engine was able to predict what people would talk about.  Our video shed just enough light  to get people interested.

DSI Mobility

Our clients at DSI had a problem. A complex app engine that leads the field, but it’s a little hard to explain.  We were able to put something together that showed its value.

Story Videos


These videos make a deeper connection with audiences by telling a story and offering value beyond a product. Great for generating buzz.


Breather

This video introduces the people to what Breather is, and its aspirations. Rather than focus on functionality, we created a story that looked great on LeWeb’s London 50 foot high screen.

MyCopyblogger

Done well, character art can be vibrant and compelling instead of cartoonish. We utilized humor while still keeping a professional tone in this video, which has done quite well for Copyblogger.

BootsnAll

Before we could convince users to try the Indie Trip Planner, we had to set the stage and tell the story of what was already the market condition to get the audience to buy in.

Tutorial Videos


Teach your customers and they’ll be loyal forever. Tutorial videos help make that happen.


Hipdash

Hipdash was a special project for us at Simplifilm. In a very short amount of time, we had to create an engaging tutorial that would be presented (and judged) by its audience.

Flowtility

This was one of the very first tutorials we made for our own product, Flowtility. We wanted to show new directors and producers how they could use our stuff in their videos.

HMS PM App

Health Market Science needed to show people exactly how easy it was to use their new app.  So, we collaborated with them to walk viewers through the application  step-by-step.

Animated Logo Reveals


Way more than your text on a screen, we capture the essence of your brand.


Screenflow

Screenflow is the premiere video editor for the Mac.  Versatile enough to work with all types of footage – from home movies to screen captures – this project had to reflect its creative possibilities.

Simplifilm

In order to “sign our work” on our YouTube and Vimeo channels, we made a logo reveal for ourselves.  With every logo reveal we do we want to capture the essence of the company.

Episode

The encoding software Episode has a boxy logo, and we wanted to make that into something that symbolized the almost magical ability to encode into virtually all formats.


Logo Reveals Are Done In 1-2 Weeks. Contact Us To Learn More.



Sizzle Reels


Speakers, authors and consultants need a sizzle reel to show what they do best. Make sure yours is amazing.


Jay Baer

Jay Baer is the most trusted voice on twitter. Who did he trust to share what he does? Us. So we built him a video that will help everyone know how good he is, so they can hire him.

Marco Montemango

The Tech Alchemist was a video that led to the SuperSummit, a profitable webinar based learning experience put on by Marco Montemango.  This video shared why Marco is worth listening to.

Victor Antonio

Victor does a custom keynote for every single company he speaks at. For all the dates he does, that’s a lot of keynotes.  This video shares exactly why he’s different.
