Our starting point is to always find the deeper story that needs to be told. We do not recite messaging points. From one-person crews covering an event to multi-camera, multi-continent promo shoots involving dozens of people, we have over ten years of film and video experience with shooting locations across the world. Our credits include short films, corporate documentaries, promotional adverts, animated stories and experimental art projects, with budgets of all sizes. Clients include GE, Warner Bros., Sotheby’s, Architecture Foundation, Deitch Gallery, LCH Clearnet, Sun Microsystems, EDF and City of London.
With over fifteen years of experience, we help companies transform the way in which they engage with others online. Examples of how we do this are through facilitating innovation workshops, researching and describing trends, generating ideas for revolutionary campaigns, overseeing multimedia design projects and drinking lots of coffee. With both freelance and agency experience, we consult with CEO’s, marketing departments and design teams. Clients include Virgin Mobile, Citibank, Morgan Stanley, Disney, HP, GE and Johnson & Johnson.
We’re often called upon to help during post-production by editing video, both original content and via third parties. We also work with talented animators and designers to provide motion graphics and animated illustrations. Additional services include audio mixing, color correction and final format outputs. Our experience includes using Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects and Photoshop. With extensive documentary experience, we have an eye for finding the right story and narrative through layers of footage.
Reformer Films is founded by Samir R. Patel and uses a talented network of filmmakers, cinematographers, strategists, creative directors, editors and animators who all share a passion for telling stories. With both freelance and agency experience, we help marketers, CEO’s, and design teams transform how they engage online. A small example of our diverse history includes directing an eight camera (including helicopter) video and photo shoot for the City of London; overseeing a redesign of Virgin Mobile’s website and providing them with a digital strategy ‘playbook;’ advising on how best to leverage social media channels; and facilitating innovation workshops.
We’ve worked in Ghana, China, Cambodia, India, United Kingdom, the Arctic Circle in Canada, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, France, Germany and across the United States. Current and past clients include Virgin Mobile, GE, Architecture Foundation, City of London, IMAX, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, NBC Universal, Deitch Gallery, and Citibank.
We are storytelling reformers, insurgents against bland media.
