A STAR Night To Remember At The Fowler Museum

We joined the David Geffen School of Medicine's STAR Program last week for a night of food, fun, and learning! We produced the shoot on set at the Fowler museum, a gem in the heart of UCLA, and captured MDs, Ph.Ds, and MD/Ph.D's hanging out discussing medicine and research.  They also premiered the first video we did for the program and the crowd went wild!

Meet UCLA Health's Kid Captain Abby

We had the absolute pleasure of profiling Abby's health journey from juvenile arthritis to being UCLA Health's Kid Captain last weekend. The shoot was a breeze as we set up production in the middle of the living room and got to hang out with Shelby, the family dog.

Top Health Care Research Doctors at UCLA on Video

What do you get when you sit the best and brightest doctors, who are leading both research and patient care, in front of the camera? Surprisingly, you get a lot of laughs! We recently got to hang out with doctors from UCLA Health Care's prestigious STAR program and they were the coolest, chillest, best-est docs you'll ever meet.

Never a boring day making hospital videos!

Celebrating High School Fitness With Sound Mind Sound Body

We recently filmed the ribbon cutting ceremony for East Valley High School's new fitness center from UCLA's Sound Mind Sound Body program. It had been a while since our video production crew had been in a high school, but here we are. So much fun!

Inside The Prosthetic Lab For Wounded Veterans

Recently we had the honor of filming inside a lab that produces prosthetic parts for our wounded veterans as part of UCLA's Operation Mend program. The research and production were absolutely incredible, and we're thankful for all the doctors putting our fearless vets back together.

The Best Patient Experience Hospital Video Shoot Ever

We are in the process of filming UCLA Hospital's new Patient Experience video for all employees of the health system!  Designed to train and boost staff morale, the UCLA CICARE model is hugely successful in impacting patient care--and goes well with filming! Our favorite actors today were Nino and Nina, who only communicates in hugs and kisses since she doesn't speak English. They are in their 90s and are celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary soon.

Alas, with all good things, the shoot came to an end. That's a wrap!

Shooting Patient Experience Hospital Video With Full Scripts

We are live at UCLA this week for our big two-punch production on patient experience: Patient Empathy and Treating Patients Like Family. We've written two amazing scripts and all hands are on deck to pull off the production. It's helpful to have actor friends in LA to keep your production low-budget!

Staging A Night Shoot At The Hospital

A late night shoot at UCLA's Ronald Reagan hospital for our Social Media video. The trick to a successful shot at a hospital is to start production at night when patients and family members are not roaming the halls. We rolled in the jib for the RED camera and everything!
