SolidLine Debuts New 2016 ShowReel and MotionReel

It's that time of year when we say, "Out with the old and in with the new!" and our Demo Reels were the first thing to get a sweet new makeover. Our Post-Production team put in the hours to update the SolidLine ShowReel and Motion Graphics Reel for a fresh start to 2016, and we are excited to share them with you! Take a look below at the new reels featuring new tunes and projects we worked hard on in 2015! And special thanks goes out to our good pal Saam Hagshenas and the gang at Monakr for the music on our motion reel! 

DHL LifeTrack Premieres SLM Produced Video

Last Fall, the SolidLine crew partnered with our friends at DHL Global Forwarding to produce a new global video promoting their new LifeTrack smartphone app. This innovative app allows users to monitor the status of their temperature-controlled shipments at any time from anywhere, and sends alerts directly to the user should any issues arise. The app also enables users to send updates directly to their teams about these critical shipments. The SolidLine produced video features a mother and daughter playing soccer, and showcases that life does not have to stop to stay in touch with critical shipments. The production was produced in both English and Spanish.

"Working with the SolidLine team is always a fantastic experience," states Vivian Berni, Senior Advisor, Optimisation at DHL Global Forwarding. "It's a dynamic interaction where we bounce off ideas and work together toward the end goal. All the team members are experts in their subject matter which makes my job a lot easier! Not to mention, they are terrific individuals as well."
