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

ADVERTISING: Mullen, a full service modern advertising agency, licensed footage from Thought Equity Motion to include in its “Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving” commercial for the Ad Council and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the spot the international community and prominent global figures honor an everyday woman, Rachel, who didn’t get behind the wheel following a night of drinking. To view ad, click here.

VIDEO PRODUCTION: Thought Equity Motion worked with the production team at Design Island, a multi-media concept and production company, to find footage for Thundering Herd, a documentary produced for the Dome Planetarium at the Dallas Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. While researching what clips to use for this project, Thought Equity Motion’s team had to keep in mind that the viewers would be looking up at the screen to watch the movie and not directly at it.

DESIGN & COMMUNICATION: Thought Equity Motion worked with Go Basil, a German-based design and communication agency (formally known as Geheimtipp), to license the infamous “Jesus Lizard” video featured in the background of the firm’s corporate site. To see the footage, click here.
