We're excited to announce that Arsenal will now be able to provide rapid PCR-quality covid tests on-site, both studio and location shoots, in under one hour! ⁠

Happy (slightly belated) New Year! 🎉

Here's a little retrospective look at what 2021 was like for us at Arsenal. We'd like to extend a very sincere thanks to all of the incredible people—clients, crew, colleagues, friends, and family—that helped make this year a great one in spite of the ever-changing obstacles that have come our way.

Here's hoping that we don't have any reason to learn the rest of the Greek alphabet in 2022!

Our dedicated studio streaming/prompter console (affectionately referred to as the “space station”) is available for any in-studio production to handle the prompting of scripts, notes, or slideshows, display a remote interviewer, or facilitate a live virtual discussion with talent at an offsite location.

Additionally, we can make a through-the-lens feed of in-studio interviews available to any stakeholders that would like to remotely monitor or weigh in on content. We can configure that feedback to be delivered either directly to the talent or privately to our stream operator (keeping your messaging on brand, and your talent less stressed).

Ask us about our space station for your next studio shoot 🚀

This week we wrapped production on @csfphiladelphia 's Spotlight Awards and Application Kickoff virtual event, which will be streamed this coming Tuesday, September 14th. We worked with CSFP to bring this annual event to a virtual format for the first time last year, and we were excited for the opportunity to do so again this year for their 20th anniversary.

We were looking for a location to test out our new gimbal, and lucky us, the wonderful folks at Studio Incamminati (who also happen to be our upstairs neighbors) allowed us to stop by and film some of their studio spaces, as well as the amazing art currently installed in their halls as part of the Rising Voices exhibition.

Over the past few weeks, we've made some massive strides in our battle against the sweet sounds of South Philly. As much as we enjoy it, street noise isn't exactly an asset to our production studio., so, we took matters into our own hands...

We designed a system of (very heavy!) window plugs and an accompanying frame which supports the weight of the plugs and locks them in place, all without making a single hole in the building's historic wooden molding.

We're thrilled to formally announce our newest team member, Zach Sayles!

If Zach looks familiar to you, that's because he's been in the mix at Arsenal since all the way back to his high school intern days, when he first helped Colin shoot a parody video which went viral enough to earn a few local news interviews.

While attending film school at UArts, Zach continued to develop his filmmaking chops and quickly became one of our most reliable go-to freelancers. Most recently, he's played a huge role in getting our new studio set up and operational, and we're so happy that he will now be lending his extremely chill vibes to our studio in a full-time capacity.

Outside of the studio, Zach spends nearly all of his free time making skate videos. His film, "Vanish," was named the best skate video of 2019 by the one and only Thrasher Magazine. (Check it out on the youtubes 👍)

Welcome to the team, Zach!

Greater Philadelphia Film Office | Official Trailer (2020) [HD]

One of the last projects we filmed before the shutdown in March was this identity video for our friends at the Greater Philadelphia Film Office In fact, we recorded the voice over for this project in our studio on the eve of entirely vacating it for months, and we finished it up in our freshly settled home offices.

We're pleased to be sharing the finished project, but we would've much preferred it to have been under better circumstances. As in other cities, the film industry in Philly has been severely impacted by the pandemic. To learn more and support the film office, visit http://film.org/savephillyfilm/

"Joe Gale Must Go" Protest

Last week, hundreds of people gathered at the Montgomery County Courthouse to protest a letter from County Commissioner Joe Gale that labeled Black Lives Matter a "radical hate group". It went on to accuse BLM of "claiming" to be victims of a "bogus narrative" of police brutality and systemic racism - and it was all done on Montgomery County letterhead.

Since then, condemnation from local mayors, school districts, fellow commissioners, state representatives and even members of the Philadelphia 76ers has been swift, but Joe has doubled down on his comments.

His words are salt in the wound to the lived experiences of Black people in our country. I am truly honored to be able to present this video recap of the event and I hope you'll take a few minutes to listen to their voices.

Joe Gale must go, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. We need to continue to challenge the overarching system that oppresses the vulnerable and dehumanizes people based on their skin color.

Safety Update

There are many more important things happening in the world right now, but as Pennsylvania enters the yellow phase of reopening, we wanted to share an update regarding safety. Over the past two months, we've thought a lot about ways to make everyone feel safe and comfortable on set, and these safety procedures are what we've come up with.

We look forward to getting back on set, but in the meantime we'll be out in the streets working to dismantle the systemically racist police state (with masks on, of course).

PPP loan forgiveness rules keep changing. Here's what 5 experts say you need to know right now. - Philadelphia Business Journal

Last week Colin was interviewed by the Philadelphia Business Journal as part of a story about businesses who were left waiting on a Paycheck Protection Program loan with no answers. And then, as luck would have it, late Friday night we received a confirmation of our approval for the loan!

A portion of his interview, discussing our plans to pivot the business and re-tool our studio for the future, was published as part of a new story.

We can't wait to "get the band back together" and start making video content in our studio at Bok again. In the meantime, we are thankful for the opportunity and the peace of mind that the PPP loan has afforded us and will use the rest of this strange time to re-acclimate to eachother virtually and gear up for Arsenal 2.0

PPP loan forgiveness rules are changing almost daily. Here's what five local experts say you need to know right now.

05/01/2020

We've been thinking about and missing our studio quite a bit lately, which has prompted some reflection about what the space means to us and inspired some new plans for the future…

It didn't take long for Bok to feel like a second home to us. It was our first space outside of Colin's two-story garage in Narberth, and we immediately fell in love with the incredible views, historic character, and all of the room for activities! Almost just as quickly, we fell in love with the amazing people that come to work in that building every day, of whom there are far too many to list.

In the nearly two years since moving into Bok, we've learned a lot about how to best use the space for our needs, and while we have made a lot of progress, the challenges presented by the pandemic have forced us to rethink everything and accelerate our efforts.

As on-location, gear-and-crew-intensive shoots, like interviews (a large part of our work), will continue to be impacted by safety concerns for some time, we're making plans to re-work the studio into a space that can flexibly serve these needs for our clients. This means investing in additional sound treatments, seamless backdrops, and amenities like a hair and makeup station and private changing space.

Our vision is to create a space that will be ready-to-go for interviews, prompter shoots, product demos, live streams (more on that soon!), and more, all with a focus on health and health and safety procedures.

Beyond those immediate concerns, we think that this new version of our studio will allow for much higher-quality, much lower-stress shoots for the vast majority of our clients.

We're looking forward to getting started on these improvements as soon as we're able to get back to work. In the meantime, we’re here for any of your remote production needs (pre or post)! Stay tuned for more updates...

Thank you healthcare workers!

Like many of you, lately we've been thinking a lot about the invaluable role of healthcare workers in our society. Through our ongoing work with Penn Medicine we've had the privilege of getting an intimate look into the lives and stories of care providers and health system employees at all levels, and we've been amazed at how consistently impressive these people are.

We just wanted to take a moment to extend a sincere thanks to everyone who goes to work in our hospitals everyday, but especially in these times—the doctors and nurses, the researchers, the administrative staff, the facilities, food and environmental services... Everyone. Thank you.

Penn Medicine is currently accepting donations of masks, gloves, sanitizer, and other PPE, as well as monetary donations for research and support funds for providers and patients. Click here for the specifics: https://www.pennmedicine.org/coronavirus/donations

On a lighter note, we can't help but appreciate the irony that, before everything changed, we would've been filming in the respiratory unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in mid-March. Instead, they were busy treating the state's first case of COVID-19. We sure do have impeccable timing!

Arsenal Mediaworks 30s Brand Identity

Like many businesses, this pandemic has challenged and stretched us in ways that were previously unimaginable, but it turns out that a forced slow-down and mandated home-time can lead to reflection.

We took the opportunity to look at our own video marketing and created a new 30 second brand identity video for Arsenal, combining pre-quarantine footage with motion graphics. We have long wanted a short simple video that explains what we believe makes us different, and we are hopeful this does the trick!

Hot tip: If you have any of our recent augmented reality materials, you can check out a 3D version now!

Augmented Reality with Milder Office

Augmented reality is one of the most exciting new ways to use video today, and it's also one of the hardest viewing experiences to truly convey in a video. There's something about the magic of it that you just have to experience yourself... But that didn't stop us from trying!

Here's a look at our most recent AR project for Milder Office Inc. Furniture With augmented reality, we were able to help them bring their innovative convertible desk design to life and demonstrate some real-world scenarios, all within the context of a "static" printed flyer.

At Arsenal Mediaworks, we pride ourselves on our ability to work with incredibly diverse clients on equally diverse projects, from pharmaceutical marketing content and online MBA classes to non-profit fundraisers and punk music videos.

In the summer of 2018 we moved the business from its first home, a two-story garage, to a beautiful, sun-drenched studio in the Bok building. We're thrilled to be working alongside a community of creatives that allows us to easily collaborate with some of the best talent in Philadelphia.

Whether we're shooting on location or here in our studio at Bok, we believe the production process should be fun and painless.

You may remember a short video we shared late last year that captured the essence of our building. That 5 minute video was an incredible synopsis of the project and some of its working parts. The amazing team at Arsenal Mediaworks shot so much great footage and were able to tell so many BOK stories, that we decided to put together a director’s cut! Check out this video if you are looking for a deeper dig into all things BOK.
