The following videos were produced for Weidner Apartment Homes. The first clip provides a brief history of the company and is featured on the About Us of the company's website. I wrote the copy and directed creative. I also created the closing screen that eliminates the "more videos" option that generally closes Vimeo and YouTube clips. Instead, I added a pitch on behalf of recruiting and a linked to active job listings. The second clip elaborates on the strategic plan, "Road to 2027," that is teased at the end of the timeline video.

The following screenshots show how demo videos were leveraged at the Latista website.

I’ve worked with Pure Pasty, a two-time World Champion bakery in Vienna VA, since their founding. I’ve consulted with owner Mike Burgess on everything from messaging to digital marketing and advertising to scaling his recipe and production nationally. The following two videos highlight some of that work.

Their medicinal properties have eased pain abroad for centuries.
Sweet Relief is now bringing that wisdom stateside!

Pop the cap.
Squeeze a dime-sized portion onto your finger.
Gently rub the cream over your area of concern.
Sweet Relief disappears without greasy residue.
It has a pleasing, tropical scent.
Sweet Relief is fast-acting.

The best part?
You can apply it again and again!
You don’t have to worry about dosage,
and you won’t risk damage to any vital organs.
We’ll leave that to traditional pain relievers.

What is Sweet Relief’s secret?
The magic lies in what we’ve coined Sublayer Science.
Sweet Relief doesn’t mask pain.
It acts below the surface to reduce swelling.
Swelling is inflamed tissue,
and it’s causing that pain you feel.

Athletes can take the edge off bruising, aches, strains, and more.
Sweet Relief works wonders on golf or tennis elbow.
It relieves range of motion concerns —
like a balky knee, or a stiff shoulder, or a tight back.

But Sweet Relief isn’t just for superstars!
It can also accelerate recovery from surgeries.
It can return movement to someone suffering from arthritis.
It can ease the shooting pain associated with carpal tunnel or sciatica.
Sweet Relief evens works on simple insect bite discomfort.

We conducted a double blind study at the University of West Virginia.
The results were resoundingly clear.
7 out of 10 people reported their pain was reduced or eliminated.
Sweet Relief works, and it does so safely and quickly.
