At the garage we LOVE technology, but the story is what drives us. The brand stories we want to tell fuel our passion for pushing practical solutions to the next limit. When art and engineering come together, amazing things can happen.
Our goal is to take any tabletop job and offer multiple creative viewpoints on it, as all of our directors specialize in tabletop, but each with their own twist. Whether you’re coming to us with ready to shoot boards, or are interested in our approach, we’ll offer multiple directors' ideas to ensure you get what you’re looking for.
Our process is unique, yet flexible. We can lead a job from creative inception all the way to the finish line, or only collaborate on a certain part of it. We heart VFX supervisors and the incredibly complicated jobs that make your brain hurt. In this hybrid world where practical effects are constantly being merged with CGI, it’s important that we all speak the same language.
While we love what we do, we recognize that our industry takes a huge toll on our (only) planet. We've partnered with caterers, homeless shelters, climate organizations and scientists to come up with plans on how to minimize our footprint. Gone are the days of line items for thousands for “green sets”. Our plans are fully integrated into the way we work already, because, well… we care. This makes our abilities exponential with very minimal price adjustments.
Green At The Garage is one of the first of it's kind, an initative that holds us accountable with actionable items that minimally affect the price tag.
Here are just a few things we're doing:
- Outfitted with water taps, we've eliminated single-use water bottles and utensils entirely.
- We're working with GoClimate to offset carbon emissions for each shoot.
- We've almost entirely eliminated food waste, partnering with local communities to feed those who need it (instead of our garbage cans).
- An in-studio hydroponic garden that serves us as a carbon-positive tool for our stylists, or nibbles for our clients and team.
