New Audio Division

May 22nd, 2008

We've also launched a new audio division, working with our audio engineer Matthew Korn. Now we're fully equipped for professional audio recording of musicians, bands, podcasts, voiceovers and commercials.

Our first major audio gig took place in Zimbabwe, Africa in April, with Aaron alongside capturing video footage. Look for the Zim project to debut in August 2008.

New Studio in Downtown GR

We've moved into a 1,800 sq. ft. space in the Avenue of the Arts, located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. The main level houses our business office and a video studio, while the lower level will be developed into an audio studio and video editing suites. If you're in GR, feel free to stop in for coffee to check out the new pad.

New Website, Video and Audio

To commemorate (and explain) the new studio and audio expansion, we launched a new website at CreoProductions.com.

The site features fresh video and audio portfolios of our latest projects, including Chicago rocker-chick Brooke Barrettsmith, a mysteriously-composed Boggle video, and Spish, an all-original short film we wrote, shot and edited in 24 hours for a recent film festival.

Coming Soon: LifeStraw Video

We're working on a video about the global water situation for European company Vestergaard Frandsen. They are the creators of LifeStraw®, two amazing water purification products that will help alleviate the water crisis around the world.

Forbes magazine called LifeStraw® Personal "One of the Ten Things that will Change the Way We Live," while also nabbing the 2008 Saatchi & Saatchi Award for World Changing Ideas in New York.

Cheers to changing the world with the triple bottom line.

WOM: Word-of-Mouth

We're a relationally-driven company in a people-driven industry. Want to help?

The best way is spreading the word about Creo to your colleagues, friends and family. You don't have to staple green play symbols on kiosks or launch an urban graffiti campaign, but passing along our URL would be a big help.

Brooke Barrettsmith EPK

May 20th, 2008

In March, we traveled to suburban Chicago to shoot an EPK for musician Brooke Barrettsmith. We shot Brooke's interview and did all the post-production work. Here's the final video.
