A Wing Visuals
Imagination in Motion®
One of our favorite things is collaborating with small businesses. We get a lot of satisfaction from creating informative films to showcase a product or service, create fun motivational content to attract and retain employees, and shoot photography and other vivid imagery to help businesses grow and thrive. We can produce short promos for social media to comprehensive video portfolios. How can A Wing Visuals help promote your business?
The project: We had so much fun working with Steven Lai and the Sakada Team to create a series of videos to launch the S. Lai premier hair care product line, and introduce their team of expert educators. Steven apologized for being so picky during the editing phase, but we welcomed his critiques because we understand ALL the details matter, no matter how small (that’s why they are called DETAILS). These videos demonstrate the new product and the techniques and tools of the hairstyling trade.
Steven had a campy idea for the third video, capitalizing on the popular desire of people to turn back the clock to achieve a younger look. We wanted to avoid any false advertisement and helped create the tagline “Quality is Ageless and Timeless”. That’s a statement nobody can argue with! This video also opened an opportunity to emulate one of the greatest filmmakers of all time–Alfred Hitchcock–who made a cameo appearance in all his movies! Did we mention how much fun it was working with Steven and the Sakada Academy Team?
The review: Definitely my Best experience working with Michael @awingvisuals! I commissioned A Wing to create 3 videos for promo use. Each piece has its own uniqueness and personality but it reflects back to my brand. Michael’s has Great sense of style, Great eyes to look at the overall picture, Great taste in editing and music selections, Great personality, and most of all, a Great hard working, professional attitude. I look forward to working with Michael and A Wing again in future projects! – Steven Lai, Imagemaker – Sakada Studios
The project: “Adventurous People, Adventurous Beers” is the tagline of Jagged Mountain Craft Brewery in downtown Denver. Here, a wide array of unique and distinctive specialty beers are crafted on site (yes, we did get to sample one or two, and they were delicious!). The decor of their building is all about the great outdoors, mountaineering and love of Colorado. In just 30 seconds, we think we represented what their brand is about with our short promo video.
The review: “”Michael did a fantastic job filming our location and put together a great promo video for us. We’ll definitely be using him again!” – Chad Bratt, Jagged Mountain Brewery
The project: Brewed Food is a cutting-edge food lab based in Denver, CO, tapping into the most innovative applications of fermentation and integration of raw brewing ingredients. We worked with Chef Jensen Cummings to film, edit and produce a series of videos and testimonials for his award-winning Kimchi. Chef had a very specific vision for the projects, and took an active role in decision-making on music and shot selection. The 5-star rating we received was a huge compliment from someone so particular–a very good trait for a quintessential chef.
The review: “”Very creative. Excellent at listening to my vision and bringing it to life.” – Chef Jensen Cummings, Owner of Brewed Food
The project: We helped a team of young entrepreneurs who moved to Colorado with the concept of catering pizza from the back of a cool old Ford truck named “Ole Blue”. They enlisted A Wing Visuals to promote their business. We created two videos–a 60-second insta-short, and a 2-minute commercial. In less than one year, Mountain Crust has received recognition as one of the best wedding caterers in Denver. Their food truly is delicious but also, we’d like to think our video helped catapult their success.
The review: “Michael is an incredible videographer and his company, A Wing Visuals, will not disappoint you! He is timely and quick to edit. We had another videographer do work for us in the past and waited weeks to get the footage back! A Wing Visuals got our first version of film back in two days, and then another round of editing in one day…it was incredible. The final product, with all of my revisions, took six days…SIX DAYS! I totally recommend A Wing Visuals for any occasion!” – Ryan Mclean, owner of Mountain Crust (www.mountaincrust.com)
The project: Mary and Hugh Hanson of Keller Williams Integrity Edina have an established presence in Minneapolis real estate, but wanted to embrace technology with professional videos to introduce their team to a new audience, and offer insight into the market. In just a week after posting their first video on Facebook and Instagram, they had over 800 views. This is exactly the type of positive energy and engagement they wanted to create, and we received a stellar review on our performance.
The review: “Have you been thinking about making a video but are uneasy about the process? We highly recommend Michael Swanson of A Wing Visuals. Michael’s easy manner compliments his professional skills which put us at ease quickly. We shot two videos in 1-1/2 hours. Michael then edited the footage, added text & music and delivered a polished product the next day. We are very pleased.” – Mary and Hugh Hanson, Keller Williams Integrity Edina/homesbyhanson.com
The project: A Wing Visuals has been fortunate to work with Soccer Sidekick, Denver’s 2016 Start-up Week winner. The company approached A Wing Visuals to create a video demonstration for its Web site, to show how the product can be used virtually anywhere, any time. Pleased with the outcome, we were asked to create a series of training videos for Soccer SideKick customers.
The review: “Very talented video content creator. Michael Swanson aka A-Wing Visuals records and edits compelling videos that embody a company’s vision. We highly recommend him!” – Santiago Velez, owner of Soccer Sidekick/Futsolo (www.soccersidekick.com)
The project: Dr. Olson and Dr. Bauer of First Avenue Dental in Little Falls, MN, enlisted A Wing Visuals to film the unveiling of their newly renovated clinic. They wanted us to feature their staff and modern technologies to benefit their clients. We helped them develop scripts, and kept medical privacy at the forefront of our mission, with all patients giving approval prior to being featured in the video.
The review: “Michael is very profession
al and easy to work with. He made our video for our office First Avenue Dental. It turned out fabulous! We had a limited time frame to film as our staff couldn’t stay but a few minutes after work. They came in, filmed them first so they could leave. After that they filmed and interviewe d myself, I had some questions prepared but they added some. Michael was fun and made it easy to be a part of the film. All of it was edited just right. I am so happy with the finished product, it represents our office perfectly and looks so profession al”. – Dr. Suzie Olson, owner of First Avenue Dental (www.firstavenuedental.com)
For various reasons, we’re not able to show all the work we’ve done for businesses, but we are pleased to share their feedback!
