SolidLine Partners with Great Clips to Help Grow Their Franchises

We love our friends at Great Clips, and recently we partnered with them to produce a series of videos that we filmed in San Jose, Houston, and Philadelphia. The videos consist of interviews and b-roll footage of three Great Clips salons, focused on all of the wonderful franchising opportunities the company offers. We created three spots per location, 15-second, 30-second, and 2-minute versions, so they can use the spots in several different ways.

"The SolidLine crew never ceases to impress us, and we're always so excited to work with them on our videos," states Beth Caron, Director of Franchise Development at Great Clips. "They're not just our production partner, they're also our pals, and we have so much fun working with them!"

Take a look at the video we filmed in San Jose below!

SolidLine Produces Ryder Case Study with Sherwood Foods
Call us biased, but client testimonial videos are one of the most effective ways to communicate the dependability and quality of a company's services. So when Ryder called us to help produce a case study with one of their clients, Sherwood Food Distributors, we couldn't wait to learn more about their relationship and the ways in which Ryder lends Sherwood Foods a hand. Filmed in Detroit, Michigan, the SLM crew set out to conduct interviews and film B-roll footage of Sherwood Food's facility, including Ryder's on-site maintenance shop. We're very pleased with how the video turned out and grateful to work with awesome clients like Ryder!

Take a look at the case study below!

The Crew's Thanksgiving Reflections
This time of year always brings deep thought and reflection for the SolidLine crew. We're lucky to get the whole week of Thanksgiving off work to spend time with family and friends -- the crew embraces the week with open arms, as you can imagine. But, it is a time to give thanks, so we thought we'd throw a special 'Thank You' to our families and friends who put up with our busy schedules, colleagues who help get the job done, and clients who make all of this awesome production madness possible! Without you all, we'd be a bunch of dudes (and a chick) standing around with a camera and some laptops, wondering what to do next. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving to all, from your silly SLM crew members!
