Check out how our clients are using video content and tools to save time and money and drive new value.  

FILM: The crew of a $50 million feature film worked with Thought Equity Motion in the pre-production stage to map out and license 100 high quality car explosion scene clips. Because we worked together to identify the right clips early on, the film’s crew was able to model the car featured in the actual movie around the car in the pre-produced shots, aligning the creative and saving significant production costs up front.

ADVERTISING: A high profile advertising consultant worked with Thought Equity Motion to license eight clips for a major automobile company’s commercial, which, aside from shots of the car itself, was created entirely from licensed video. This footage cost $100K, saving the auto brand around $2 million in estimated production costs.

ONLINE PUBLISHING: Thought Equity Motion provided videos featured in Sports Illustrated’s “Greatest Heisman Moments” (presented by Nissan), where visitors were invited to watch SI’s 16 most memorable Heisman moment videos and vote for their favorite.
