336 Productions Produces Web Videos For Dr. John Spencer Ellis’ New Program

336 Productions recently finished work on Dr. John Spencer Ellis’ new program, Fitness Fortunes. Dr. Ellis is the owner and founder of NESTA and Adventure Boot Camp. As a fitness, wellness and personal development expert, he sought to create a program to help fitness professionals get their business on the fast track to success.

Dr. Ellis reached out to 336 to produce, film and edit four videos for the program in which he shares his personal experiences in the fitness industry, success tips and tricks and guidance for fitness professionals. 336 Productions edited the footage and prepared the videos for the Fitness Fortunes website, where they would be presented at no cost to the viewer. Dr. Ellis describes the videos as “…my most compelling and closely guarded total success formula ever exposed.”

336 Productions has worked with Dr. Ellis in the past on other projects ranging from a feature length documentary, The Compass, to the Lifestyle Designers seminar and DVD series, to web promos for various projects.

336 Produces Three Web Promos for SAP

336 Productions recently finished three web promos for SAP’s Business Communication Management (BCM) software. They were approached by SAP and asked to create a web promo campaign for the BCM software that would create excitement for the product, and educate people about its function and purpose. 336 worked with SAP to create three concepts that had similar themes and ideas. Once the scripts were locked, 336 casted the project, assembled a crew, secured locations, and created shot lists, shooting schedules, and call sheets. The whole time 336 Productions worked closely with a team at SAP to make sure the videos stayed true to SAP’s strong brand identity and philosophy. 336 jumped into post-production when production wrapped, and started to mold the footage into videos that would exceed SAP’s expectations. The music, cuts, effects, graphics, color, and audio all came together, bringing the scripts potential to the screen.

2010 Reel Available Now

336 Productions, a production company based in Orange County, California, has released their 2010 reel. Updates to the 2009 reel include new music and highlights from last’s years work. Some of the new work includes the three web promos 336 did for SAP’s Business Communication (BCM) software, the instructional videos for the mixed martial arts coaching association, MMACA, the workout videos for the new group exercise program, IMPACT, The Compass Guide to Wealth Creation, and the web promo for Expense Tracker. The reel features some of the most popular services 336 offers: internet videos, commercials, trade show videos, and DVD creation. Josh Stone, co-owner of 336, feels that their 2010 reel represents the company, and the direction they’re moving in. He says, “When people watch our reel we want them to not only walk away with a sense of the kind of work we do, but we also want it to give a little insight into who we are. I think this reel does that. We like to have fun, we get excited about our work, we appreciate our clients, and we like to set the bar high.”

2009 In Retrospect

2009 was a great year for 336 Productions. It started with the world premiere of The Compass in February at The Grove of Anaheim, a film that 336 produced in association with Spencer Media, and it ended with finishing post-production on MMACA, a mixed martial arts coaching certification program that 336 produced the media for.

336 Productions also won three awards in 2009. A Telly Award, Communicator Award, and a W3 Award; all recognizing 336’s work and abilities as a superior production company.

2010 is threatening to blow 2009 right out of the water! Only two months in, and we are producing some wonderful videos for some amazing clients (more details to come!)

One of our goals this year is to work with more local Orange County companies, so if you own one, work at one, or know of one in need of media, 336 Productions is the place to go for commercials, trade show videos, infomercials, internet videos, and more!
