How to Catch Fire: Reimagining Shareable Video Content in the Remote Work Era

Jedidiah Gant - July 6, 2020

Creativity loves a challenge.

It’s a brave new world out there. Health precautions around COVID-19 have fundamentally shifted the way we make video— but not why we make video.

All great art starts with a circumstance— in fact, creativity works BEST under limitations. So we think of video production in 2020 less like a limitation and more like an opportunity. Video is our craft and we expect to hold up standards of excellence even though we’re in the midst of pandemic. We’ve been in constant research mode and culled a variety of creative ideas that are remote friendly.

We’ve put our brain power into 3 key video formats that can help tell your story in a way that’s completely safe, resonates with real humans, and is uniquely of its time.

We believe that catching fire is perfect way to be thinking about creating videos. So what is fire in this context? It is the emotional connection to your story, brand or offering. That emotion, that fire, is how we believe you build trust no matter where you are in the funnel. Each of these frameworks generally work at a specific level, but they are flexible. There’s never been a better time to connect with each other— and we’re here to make that happen.
