A New Zealand Journey ft. Toby Miller
My entry for the #DOWNTOEDIT video contest hosted by Epidemic Sound and @downtoedit. We aimed to create a cinematic audio/visual experience that engages the viewer from start to finish.

Director, Shooter, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) This is a spec ad we created for Spindrift Sparking Water's strawberry flavor. We wanted to create a unique product video, mostly using all practical effects. We aimed to keep it upbeat and fun, as that would be most fitting of the brand.
Janice Liou's Yoga Story
Director, Shooter, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) Starring: Janice Liou (@janiceliou) Had the pleasure of working with social media influencer, Janice Liou, to create this video about her yoga story in Taiwan. We only had her for 2 days, so we had to plan everything out carefully. We researched all the locations ahead of time, and planned out the schedule so we could capture everything we needed quickly. Janice was super happy with the finished video, and we continue to work with her on future projects.
Flames of the Fallas
Director, Shooter, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) Spain has some of the most amazing festivals! Las Fallas is celebrated every year on March in Valencia, where dozens of sculptures are set up around the city, only to get burned up on the last day. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend this year and I filmed the whole thing.
HP - MOTUS Demo at One Penn Plaza
Director/DP: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) Lighting Grip: Jeffrey Vreeland Production Assistant: Isaiah Horton Photographer: Jessica Cuevas We worked with HP to capture the demo of their latest product, MOTUS. MOTUS is here to revolutionize the construction industry with a state-of-the-art robot that automates construction layout, which was traditionally done by hand. HP trusted us to capture the live event, as well as stage some product shots and conduct interviews. The event was a big success and HP was incredibly happy with the deliverables, leaving us a stellar review - "Stephen brought together a powerful and knowledgeable crew to our project. From lighting, to sound, to stills, they all enabled Stephen to do his best and he's a great leader. Stephen knows how to bring the right tools for the job and bring the best out of everyone. Including myself." - Bashir, HP, Photography Project Manager
Timewise Landing Page Video
Director, Producer, DP, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) We worked the appointment booking app, Timewise, to create the landing page video for their new website launch. When they reached out to us, they were looking for a high-end video, almost like an 'Apple' like commercial. Since it's not a physical product, we came up with a style to showcase the app features with slick animations. We managed the entire production from start to finish, from coming up with the script, casting and hiring actors, and collaborating with different business owners. The client was ultimately really happy with our work, and left us a stellar review - "They understood rapidly the focus and the purpose of the product making it super simple to bring our vision to reality." timewise.com
