Build brand awareness by creating engaging, memorable content that captures the attention of your market. Generate conversation around your brand by implementing a storytelling aspect that communicates your values. Branded content is about highlighting your business’ message, values, and story for all audiences to see.
We help create an emotional story to be the backbone for your ad by diving deeper into the storytelling process. Commercials that have meaning and purpose, that make you think and feel. Commercials can be used to commercialize, monetize, sell, promote, and advertise a product, business or service.
Tell your true story by documenting your reality. Whether the story is focused on shining light on a subject, or simply getting a message across. Express yourself in a non-fictional medium and true to life storytelling format. Documentaries are a fantastic way to get creative and also tell more of a storyline.
Showcase your product effectively by demonstrating the functions and benefits it provides to the consumer. Explaining the product visually, allowing the consumer to quickly understand and to provoke interest. Product Videos create a longer lasting impression with consumer’s, allowing the product features to be experienced instead of explained.

Brandon and the Forest City team are true professionals, easy to work with, and are highly creative in their suggestions to their clients. The process of scheduling, planning and shooting was painless. Their on-site presence and demeanor is highly professional, while at the same time down-to-earth and very easy-going. The quality of their work is excellent, their creative input and suggestions are spot-on, and they are a joy to work with!

Forest City Films did an exceptional job telling the story of my company and were a pleasure to work with. They were professional, organized and communicated very well. Brandon set aside time to connect with me in advance to understand who I was and what was important to me as a business owner. He and his team have a gift for storytelling and I will definitely connect with them again when I have a project in need of their talents.
