As your just about to graduate college, you were probably told to have some sort of sizzle reel to showcase the work you’ve been on; in a sense, it’s your resume. But what if you’re an editor? Is sizzle reel really necessary for you? Jeff, our editor, discusses reasons why a sizzle reel may not […]
That was pretty cool, wasn’t it? I mean, did you see some of that footage? Especially any of the drone shots. It’s a thing of beauty. However, did you notice the vocals placed through the video? A man talking about creative inspiration, and letting us help you make a product that we’re all proud of. […]
The University of Wisconsin (Foundation and Alumni Association) brought us in to promote their Annual Appeal. With John and I being alumni we were really excited to show what we loved about the university. There are three videos in this project: Spirit, Academics, and UW Experience. We wanted to bring the idea of a one-shot-wonder into […]
We get to do a lot of great things with Brent King and the Diocese of Madison. This piece was created to help promote the Seminarian campaign and overall awareness of Seminary. We followed around a Seminarian for two days at Sacred Heart Major Seminary. It was great to see the daily life of a Seminarian […]

We spent two days running around campus with T.C. DeWitt surprising students […]
Coming up with new ways to promote is always a challenge. With a limited budget and desire for comedy you can’t go wrong with an animation. This is one of the many scripts John wrote for the pitch. The one that wasn’t picked was a great deal more snarky (and my personal favorite) =) We […]
Another fun day with the gentlemen at Karben4! This piece premiered on Friday Nov. 22nd alongside the release of Fleece Navidad. We wanted to show the creation of the beer and painting in a new way. Hopefully when after you watch these videos you’ll have a new appreciation for the beer and painting.

Backflip Films second generation (Ryan’s daughters and John’s son) were in a photoshoot for Three Cheers Creative. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity so we brought our camera along and filmed it. We ended up with just enough footage to fit into a short video.
