"Front Runner Films immediately felt like a part of the family and that put everyone at ease and made the shoot fun. They listened to what we needed and made a real effort to emerge themselves in the culture of our company. The results speak fo themselves, they nailed it!"
TYLER SCHMIDT | CO-FOUNDER/LOGISTICS
Front Runner Films has changed the way we think about advertising, marketing and our overall online presence. We're a stronger company because of Front Runner Films.
KEITH STONE | PRESIDENT & CEO
“The folks at FrontRunner Films were easy to work with and helped us create video assets that we are using to significantly grow our business. All of their staff listened to what we wanted, instead of what we said, and the final collaborative result was even better then we could have expected!”
HOWARD VOGEL | VP BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
"Front Runner Films was pivotal in helping our newly formed foundation craft our identity by telling the story of the programs we are supporting. They became members of the team, drawing out the best in the staff and organizations we support as well as the youth we serve. They provided creativity, compassion and compelling content to help us communicate who we are and what we do."
AMY SCHINDLER | DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
POWDERHAUS | Product IntroProduct Introductions are kind of like a Dating videos. They give you just enough information to find out if you are the right match, and to leave you thirsty for more! In this piece we introduce one of the more original and unusual boutique beers that Powderhaus produce. It's short, it's sharp and right on brand.
POWDERHAUS | Company CultureSince opening our Boise office a year ago, we've enjoyed becoming a part of the community. One such pleasure comes from the boutique beers that Powderhaus brews locally. The founders of Powderhaus share our love of community and working with them to create a Company Culture video was the perfect fit. Our goal was to produce video that really spoke to the heart of their brand, after all it was a sincere love of the nuances of the beer making process that started and differentiates this company.
CSI globalVCard | Online CommercialIn our most ambitious Corporate Video shoot to date for client CSI globalVCard, we shut down four city blocks in Boise, ID. The (fake!) bank robbery was followed by a high speed chase, demonstrating that our client's products can be used anywhere and anytime, even when on the run! We brought in 25 people (cast and crew) from LA, Seattle and Portland and hired 35 on the ground in Boise.
Sesame Software | Online CommercialWe worked closely with the Sesame team to create a commercial intended for online distribution but that is broadcast TV quality. We also wanted to tell their product story in a very eye-catching, memorable and predominately visual manner. Making this video not dependent on viewers having their sound turned on.
Power2Change | Nonprofit IntroPower2Change serves as an umbrella organization for a host of partners across the US and around the world, providing funding, technology, support and programming in youth clubs and organizations that inspire creativity and empathy. The camps featured in these videos are designed to be holistic; encompassing growth in areas of mind, body and soul, and we feel our approach mirrored these themes. Focusing on human stories to create an emotional connection and welcome the viewer into the community.
Power2Change | Nonprofit PromoPower2Change helped organize and host a series of camps in the summer of 2017 that focus on at-risk and underprivileged middle-school students in challenged communities. They wanted to capture the spirit of these programs and go beyond merely cataloging the actual events taking place. The question we asked ourselves was how can we make these spots un-ignorable and unforgettable? Our solution was to focus on the human stories, and create pieces that felt like a warm welcome into this community.
ConnexPay | Online CommercialConnexPay offer payment solutions geared towards reducing risk within the travel industry. Instead of the stock-standard office setting, we explored something completely different and irresistibly eye-catching; slack-line walking 400ish ft above the a canyon floor! Building on the owner’s initial idea of how managing corporate spending can feel like tightrope walking, we played with a visual parallel between the fear pitfalls of travel management and the fear of falling to one’s death!
Wayne Ent | Company CultureWayne Enterprises is a very large, commercial company that feels like a small "mom and pop" store. Wayne Ent. is proudly family run, and prides itself on creating both a product and a working environment that people are passionate about. Our challenge was showing the scale and success of the business, whilst maintaining the heart of the brand.
DNM | Company OverviewMike and Ben from Delicious Nutritious Markets are passionate about their company, they aren’t just selling a product, they’re living it. Their enthusiasm for what they do charged us up and they were up for anything. We created a piece that was specific to who they are and what they believe, meeting their admirable standards of authenticity and integrity.
CSI globalVCard | Online CommercialAn ambitious shoot with a lot of variables and moving parts that we shot in a single day. With our thorough pre-production process and our imaginative production team, we succeeded. We took over a series of lofts in Downtown LA and converted them into a modern working office to help bring this new spot, developed alongside the marketing department at globalVCard, to life.
YOKE | CommercialYoke is a revolutionary new payment mobile app that utilizes cutting edge technology. We felt that this product would be a perfect match with our production model that utilizes the iPhone6. Using this set-up enabled us to move quickly and be able to insert ourselves in working environments with relative anonymity. This gives viewers a beautiful looking, yet realistic, fly-on-the-wall insight into the brand.
CSI Global-Fleet | CommercialWe love the challenge of producing high production value on the fly and this spot is a great example. With limited resources, no formal script, and only having access to a Peterbilt truck for the day, we set off up and down the highways of southwest Florida. Using a chase car to capture B-roll on the California highways, we clocked 100 miles traveling from Long Beach to the Mojave Desert.
CSI globalVCard | CommercialOne of two spots that were the last to shoot in the historic Herald Examiner building, the concept was outside the box for the company but that is what they asked for. They put their faith and resources behind us to produce a risqué spot to catch new clients eyes.
