TWITTER EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS
Twitter came to us to create video content that would help educate users and increase usage of the platform. Features of Twitter were highlighted individually to show both the what and the way for users. Some were for simple features directed to brand new users, while others launched entirely new products for Twitter. These are continuing to roll-out. 3 videos below. The full series can be viewed here.
HTC's "Uh-Oh" Protection guarantees consumers a replacement phone, no questions asked. Instagram provided an opportunity to bring real-life scenarios into the platform's creative guidelines. The still thumbs converted into the short story as users scrolled through their feed:

Social/Media Storytelling Campaign | Extensive Asset Production and Partnerships | Summer 2014 [Lead/Senior Producer and Lead Client Contact]
Levi's Commuter 2014 Trailer:
This campaign is currently being rolled out over July and August of 2014 and is one of my proudest pieces of work. When passion crosses with work, the results are usually pretty fantastic. This project has been no exception. I took full lead on all aspects of this campaign from overseeing all production (including all asset development for product shots on levi.com and PR look books) to managing the team and the first point of contact for the client and all photographers, contractors and partnerships.

NIKE RUN FREE
Global Campaign | Social / On & Off-platform development / Localization | August 2013 [Senior/Lead Producer & Lead Client Contact]
Nike Run Free gave the entire running community a chance to dream up the most epic run imaginable, submit it and then campaign for it by running and earning Nike Fuel. Using Hashtags and Nike+ Fuel, the top 10 submissions received votes, revealing a single winner who's dream run came true thanks to Nike.
Likely the most technically complex project I've ever produced, Nike Run Free spanned 13 months from inception to completion, required 5 phases, developed on Nike's CQ5 platform in conjunction with off-platform development [all responsive], Contest and submission management, a custom CMS and rating system, Spotify integration, Localization in 29 countries and more.

LEVI'S COMMUTER 2013
Social/Media Storytelling Campaign | Extensive Asset Production and Partnerships | Summer 2013 [Senior Producer]
Levi's asked Instrument to take over their digital campaign for all things Commuter in the Summer of 2013. We produced 3 films highlighting icons of the "Creative Class" and told a new story of what it means to "Go to Work." Through a very detailed social calendar and large repo of assets, we engaged the community by prompting them to participate and tell their own stories in the same way the key participants we hand selected told theirs. This also prompted the first partnership between VSCO and any brand.
The case-study for this campaign can be found here. The 3 films are embedded below:
