Snowday

Snowday A boutique writing & production studio.
Consider us a production-oriented creative studio—a team of writers and directors, co-creators and friends. We create powerful ideas for film and video, or bring those already in-motion to the screen. We call ourselves “boutique” which is a fancy way of saying “we’re small”, and we like to think we're “agile” which is a shorter way of saying “we're quick to react like a caffeinated cat”. The needs of modern brands and audiences are changing crazy-fast, so we wake up wide-eyed, alert and ready to take them on every day. When we look at the work, we look at the possibilities. We prioritize the development of original projects to give every idea a chance. And we solve problems every day with questions of “what if…” and “how can we…” because work is more fun that way; it really is.

A creative production studio.

Google News Initiative: "A Matter of Dignity"

We're proud to have collaborated with the Google News Initiative on a new short documentary about the power of local journalism: We followed reporters at Minnesota's Star Tribune as they tirelessly worked to shine a light on mass neglect of people with disabilities across the state. It is our pleasure to have been given the opportunity to further share this story with the world. https://vimeo.com/329828741

Something new from Josh Buoy and Avery DiUbaldo (!): "Ghosts" – a narrative short film about loss and how it changes the way we see one another.

Sending a huge thanks to everyone who made this film happen, including the incredibly talented Caleb Martin Foote and Will Ropp, and magical camera work (as always) from Benji Dell. We've started submitting "Ghosts" to festivals — stay tuned!

Thrilling Short Film Captures Madness of NYC Subway System In Quick, Two-Second Clips

"Though the film is tightly packed and fast-moving — shot unobtrusively on a compact, handheld camera — Roddy Hyduk believes story lines emerge when the clips are watched together as a montage. For instance, candid shots of happy couples kissing on station platforms give way to a scripted scene featuring a young man and woman arguing about their relationship as they wait for their train to arrive at 103rd Street." - The Village Voice
