We Make Things: Best Practices for Video Marketing

Satellite Films' first original video podcast is WE MAKE THINGS ... a show about about best practices in video content production and storytelling for your marketing campaigns.

Have you ever wondered how the commercials for NBC TV shows get made? In our first episode, NBC Writer/Producer Ryan Sage discusses how he directs launch campaigns for television marketing.

WE MAKE THINGS is a visual show, with a succinct 20 minute runtime. WE MAKE THINGS is hosted by Satellite Films founder Kuang Lee, edited by Andrew Kaluzynski
and its logo designer is Lizya-Beth du Plessis.

Satellite Films is launching a video podcast for marketers and content creators! WE MAKE THINGS is a new series that provides valuable best practices for video/marketing campaigns.

Featuring interviews from creative leadership and key opinion leaders, my goal for WE MAKE THINGS is to be a valuable source of information, full of valuable insights for producing video content.

We didn’t want to crowd the marketplace with just another podcast, so ours is a visual show, with a succinct with 20 minute runtime. Our first episode launches here on Linkedin next week, with an interview with NBCUniversal marketing content producer Ryan Sage. Stay tuned!

As businesses and productions re-open during the summer and fall, Satellite Films prioritizes safe and healthy productions during this transitional time.

This infographic shows the measures that we will take to safety in our shoots.

1) Crew Members temperatures taken before production
2) Small Crews (2-3 Crew Members maximum on-site)
3) Masks and Gloves worn during production
4) Crew Members will stand 6-feet away from each other, clients, and interview subjects during production.

Satellite Film and Video remains committed to your video and communication needs. Let's make new videos safely!

How Second Life improved its marketing ROI by 300%

These days, a tiny bit of good news can make your day. So it was a thrill to see Satellite Films' work “out in the wild”, in this case, a customer success story video featured on VentureBeat.

It was a pleasure working with client Treasure Data producing a customer case study video featuring virtual world creator Linden Lab (Second Life).

The Satellite Films team is small but mighty… and open for business.

We’re finding ways to adapt, from producing safe, socially-distant video productions with all crew members at least six-feet away from speakers and each other, to pivoting towards animation and post-production projects. It’s taken a lot to transform ourselves, and I couldn’t have done with our team of editor Andrew Kalunzynsku and account manager Lizya-Beth du Plessis.

In tough times, teams keep each other lifted.

It seems like a different lifetime ago now, but seeing these photos brought smiles to our face in these stressful times. Flashback to early March, where Satellite Films presented our documentary ROOTED at the Cinequest film festival.

Seeing these photos also reminded me of one of our company’s missions to bring light to underserved communities through storytelling.

Thermo Fisher Scientific: Herasafe Product Animation

Happy to share new motion-graphics and animation work for client Thermo Fisher Scientific. On a personal note, as founder, I (Kuang Lee) am proud that my company Satellite Films is a creative vendor for them, and I’m prouder to have worked there internally a few years back.

Thermo Fisher Scientific was one of the first diagnostics-makers to produce COVID-19 tests, one of the first two companies to receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for their work. Bravo TFS!

Auris Health Brand Video - Satellite Films

Satellite Films was excited to work with med-tech company Auris Health, producing a video that celebrated their first 1500 cases. The project needed to be “visuals-only” to captivate a trade show audience, but then also serve as an external piece of brand creative. We did a full scale production for them, then utilized motion graphics and a rich sound design in post-production to provide a solution for our med-tech client. We are quote proud of this video and you can watch below.
