American Youth Foundation
Offering youth & teen summer camps, outdoor adventure trips, leadership conferences, and school programs, the American Youth Foundation is a nonprofit youth development organization with a presence in New Hampshire, Michigan, and Missouri. MindActive is proud to partner with AYF to create informational videos for the web site, conferences and presentations, and social media use. Our licensed drone pilot and videographer traveled to Camp Miniwanca to not only record video, but teach the campers to use the technology; we are delighted to contribute to the education and growth of the children while still creating high-quality footage for future use.
Glen Echo County Club, located in a St. Louis, Missouri suburb, is a private golf club with a wide range of offerings, including golf, dining, tennis, swimming, special occasion hosting, and more. Glen Echo wanted to create a way for web site visitors to explore the country club digitally, and MindActive was there to assist. The extensive grounds were perfect for drone footage, and our team of videographers was able to capture training sessions, dining events, and even underwater footage of guests enjoying the pool. This content is currently in use on the Glen Echo web site, and we are developing additional videos for web site and social media use.
CASCO, one of St. Louis's premier architecture, engineering, and design firms, reached out to MindActive with a challenge: to completely redesign their website with a new, responsive theme, modernized design, and informational videos. These videos range from the primary CASCO web site banner to interviews with the leadership team and project highlights. Our team incorporated on-site videography with 3D renderings and photography to create multiple visually appealing, insightful files to be used on the web site and in social media posts.
An inside look at the inner workings of Duggan Contracting and Fixture Concepts.
Fixture Concepts's 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility offers clients a single source for casework/millwork services, from custom cabinets to plastic laminate or solid surface countertops to complex pieces, combining a variety of materials including wood, steel, glass, and acrylics. Our challenge was to create a video that not only highlighted the skill level and attention to minute details the carpenters display, but also showed the extensive facility and resources available to the Fixture team. Our in-house editing team used the footage our drone pilot and videographer captured on-site to create a fast-paced, mobile-responsive video for the Fixture Concepts home page.
Duggan Contracting, a full-service firm providing high-quality architectural design, millwork/casework manufacturing, and construction, wanted to ensure visitors to their web site were aware of all the services they offer: general contracting, specialty carpentry, and residential services. Our team of licensed drone pilots and photographers traveled to in-progress construction projects to capture the work in progress, then combined project photos with the new drone footage to create a compelling, informational banner video on the home page.
Koetting Eye Center
In late 2018, the Koetting Eye Center realized that their web site and logo did not reflect the cutting-edge technological support they provide. MindActive was tasked with completely overhauling the brand / graphic identity with a new logo, new online presence, and revamped web site. Our photographers and licensed drone pilots visited both locations to provide completely new imagery for the web site, and we also created a 360 video to allow virtual tours the primary location.
CGI Product Visualization
For on-air b-rolls, large scale event productions, documentaries, or corporate branding, our work hits the mark with the appropriate level of production. We have worked with dozens of clients to showcase their product, whether on HSN and QVC, Amazon.com store pages, or tablets at trade shows. We scale each project to meet and exceed the client expectations with the right equipment, the right crew, and the right execution.
Land, Culture and Sustenance
This video is a collaboration between MindActive's Creative Director Byron Sletten and photographer Michelle Havens (https://havenator.com).
It is part of a 2018 Artist-in-Residence grant, sponsored by the Petrified Forest National Park.
The project uses the unique beauty of the Petrified Forest and its surrounding Painted Desert and historical photos to frame how the land influenced culture, agriculture, and sustenance.
