In any industry, you're bound to find a bunch of confusing lingo, and video production is no exception. Here are some handy definitions that will have you talking video production like a pro in no time.
While working with the World Trade Center Denver, we learned world trade isn't just about increasing the bottom line. It’s also about forging relationships between peoples and cultures in order to open new markets, reduce global poverty, and facilitate peace.
World Trade Center Denver helps business with 5-5000 employees expand into the global market and offers resources and training for how to do so responsibly.
Last fall, we released a film for CTE (Career and Technical Education), a STEM-based training program for high school-aged Cherry Creek School students in Denver. CTE needed a film that communicates to prospective students and parents as well as to investors how their program helps to train and place kids in well-paying, long-term careers. CTE offers training in over 30 different fields such as engineering, automotive, business, and art and gives an alternative for non-traditional learners who thrive in a more hands-on environment.
A picture is worth a thousand words. And video is even better. Canvas Technologies needed a film that quickly and effectively communicated what their product is and what it does to prospective customers and investors.
In 2015, we created a film for Munro Pumps to help them communicate what they do, and just as important, who they are to their customers and prospective employees. The Munro family has been in business in Colorado for more than a century, and their name and product has survived over time because of their fierce dedication to quality and their insistence on "making it right for the customer."
Back in 2012, Colorado-operated Pepper Custom Baits commissioned a Hoptocopter™ Films CO/FILM to be shot at Lake Powell and showcasing their jigs and baits. For three days, we got to watch some of the finest fishermen (such as Fred "Boom Boom" Roumbanis) do what they do best while we learned about the heart of Pepper Custom Baits.
GeoStabilization International (GSI) asked us to create a short film focusing on the heart of their company culture, the services they offer, and their desire to take exceptional care of their customers. We designed the film to highlight not only GSI's wide variety of abilities and work locations but also to communicate the personal human element at the center of their company values.
Our Creative Director, Will Campbell, will soon be hanging up his Hoptocopter™ hat to pursue his own path of producing documentary films. While we are sad to see him go, we are so happy he is following his heart, and we fully support his efforts.
Copper Creek Builders came to us needing a short film to promote their new neighborhood community online as well as to show Parade of Homes participants as they toured their houses. We designed the film to highlight not only Copper Creek's gorgeous new homes but also to promote the community lifestyle of the neighborhood.
One of the coolest parts of what we do is collaborating with other artists.
It's gratifying to watch how, through collaboration, all of us pool our strengths and talents so that every piece of the final product is artistically solid, contributing to overall strength of the whole.
Each project we take on at Hoptocopter™ Films is special in an of itself. We love the challenge of helping our clients solve problems in their organizations.
But I especially love when a project walks through our doors that allows us to help people who then directly help other people who so desperately need a voice. Seeing others succeed and knowing I had a small part in it makes my toes tingle!
Hoptocopter™ Films has had the opportunity to work amazing companies in the energy and manufacturing industries over the last year. We’re continually inspired by the workers and innovators who keep our world moving forward. We’ve put together a short industrial demo reel to highlight their stories. Please enjoy.
This summer has stretched our Hoptocopter™ Films team in a hundred different directions. We turned into an international firm when Will spent a month working remotely from Norway. Our staff has stretched its knowledge and resources—sometimes working outside of our comfort zones...
The foundation of why we make films is to transition the viewer from confusion to clarity. Every day, we consult businesses and organizations on the importance of communicating who they are, why they exist, and what sets them apart from their competition. Simply stated, we break down your message into easy to understand, bite-sized bits that, together, make a film that helps to connect you with your clients.
