Motivate Behavior

We exist to tell the stories of the pioneer, the adventurer, the person with a calling deep inside. We’re here for the bleeding-edgers, the ones who see opportunity while the world’s still looking in the rear-view mirror. The ones who seek the unfiltered air of the wild.

Because we’re those pioneers, too. We know what it means to come back down the mountain with a story to tell. To have gone where few others have, and return with something extraordinary, that the world needs to hear.

We’re here to be the way forward.

Our clients love working with us. We’re a partner that will always go the extra mile to produce a great video. We love to have fun, and do a great job in the process. And we think you’ll really enjoy it from concept all the way to the end product.

But none of that is why you should work with us. 

Because you can work with a lot of companies that will deliver a good video that tells a story. But where others see that as the end goal, we’re just getting started. 

We don’t just want to create videos, we want to create awe-inspiring films that tell pioneering stories - whether that’s emerging tech or exploring the outdoors. And we want to explore new ways of reaching your audience in the process.

Because you have a brand new story to tell that not enough people have heard. Which means your end goal probably isn’t to make a video. What gets you excited is telling as many people as humanly possible what you’re up to, because it’s going to change the world. Those are the stories we want to spread. And we’ll do whatever it takes to do it.

So if you just want a video, we’re one of the many great production companies you can get a video from. But if you want a a partner to join you on your journey, one who knows what it means to take on new challenges and tell those stories, then we’d love to work together.

If you’re going to show off your new hybrid SUV and put it through its paces, San Francisco is the perfect location. H&L Partners and BX Films teamed up on behalf of Toyota to capture the beauty of both the vehicle and the city in this short promo. A day in the life of a bicyclist commuting off the beaten path, the spot manages to catch the spirit of loving your life and your ride in just thirty seconds. The killer

soundtrack doesn’t hurt either. Fun fact, all five locations were filmed in a day.

Alpine Investors

San Francisco based Alpine Investors is revolutionizing the world of private equity, and by extension, the world. Alpine worked with BX to highlight their unique approach to talent and internships, where interns aren’t grabbing coffee, they’re putting together deals, presenting to clients, and given extraordinary responsibility. Far from an ordinary summer program, Alpine is proving that radical

investment in people yields radical success. We loved working with Alpine, whose altogether different vision for investing is at the same time human, genius, and inspiring.

Trōv Mobility

Trov was launching their new product platform and needed to distinguish their new Mobility platform from Trov’s existing product line. BX created this differentiation through a launch video that overlaid representative motion design over the top of lifestyle storylines.

VSCO Careers

VSCO wanted to show potential candidates what it’s like to work at VSCO. So rather than giving thousands of people a personal tour of their gorgeous offices, VSCO partnered with BX to create a video for their careers page. The goal of the video was to communicate VSCO’s ethos, work culture, and the beautiful aesthetic of their space.

Libratone’s wireless Q-Adapt headphones were a challenger to market dominators like Bose, Beats, and JBL. Libratone needed to get people’s attention with their commercial, so we created an attention grabbing commercial that doubled down on one value proposition: superior noise cancellation.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The videos received high engagement metrics and positive feedback from company stakeholders. A flexible and reliable partner, BX Films thrives in chaos, yet still delivers. They took the time to adjust to any client needs or project setbacks while still providing production expertise.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior brand marketing manager at a cloud networking company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BX Films?

We hired them to create high-quality recruitment and brand marketing videos. We’re owned by a worldwide IT company, but we don’t have access to their large marketing budget, so each initiative must be worthwhile.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BX Films created three recruiting videos and three more which were part of a significantly sized brand campaign. The core of the project was developing, producing, filming, and then editing the videos for our company.

We already had ideas in mind for the videos, but they initially helped with the storylines and finetuned our scripts to prepare them for the screen. Their team got the talent and location ready, then filmed and edited the videos.

What is the team composition?

I acted as a supervising producer for the overall project.

How did you come to work with BX Films?

A friend of mine freelanced with BX Films. We spoke to probably three companies for the first recruiting videos, and BX Films seemed the most professional and easy to work with. We had a productive relationship with BX Films, so we continue to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between $250,000–$500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with BX Films in July 2017. We’ve been working with them on and off since then, and we’re currently engaging them for another project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Internally, we checked with senior stakeholders and employees to see if they liked the videos, and also whether it resonated with the target audience. Their reactions have generally been very positive across the board. Some of our more brand-focused videos have had good engagement metrics so far.

How did BX Films perform from a project management standpoint?

They thrive in chaos, which is always good for a video production company. Clients often have a hard time getting their ducks in a row, whether that’s agreeing on some of the creative or timelines. However, BX Films did a good job not only scoping the project but also being flexible with the timeline and amendable to any changes. They were very clear about what was needed of everyone and then, on shoot days, they were very regimented and ran that process well. They were also generous with the number of editing rounds that they gave us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What’s great about BX Films is that they’re flexible with whatever your company needs. You get the bare minimum with some companies, or they’re inflexible and only offer one service, without the production reliability that you want. BX Films has been a great partner throughout all of our video projects. You can rely on their team to produce great content. With BX Films, it wasn’t just about getting the project done; it was about ensuring that the end product is high-quality and helpful to your goals.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My company had a really positive experience working with their team, so there’s not much they could improve on. They could broaden their services and get into more ancillary aspects of video production, but that’s a suggestion and not a criticism.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You have to be trusting, open-minded, and easy to work with. If you do all of those things, then they’re always going to be right there with you. You can’t be rigid on certain things, because there will be times in the project when you can’t cast a particular person or you have to change the content because it’s too expensive to film. That’s the nature of the business, but BX Films has creative ways to work around those obstacles, so listen to them.
