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.
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
Harvest Pro - Explainer Video
Director, DP, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) Studio: Sound-Imagination We partnered up with Soukup Advertising (http://soukupmarketing.com/) to produce a Kickstarter/fundraising video for their client GrowOp, and their premium home-growing cannabis product, the Harvest Pro. We were tasked with making the video seem as luxury, and as high-end as possible, all while appealing to the target demographic.
Wallet Ninja Holiday Ad
Director, DP, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) We created a holiday social media ad for Wallet Ninja and it's package deal. The unique challenge here was showcasing all the features of the card within 30 seconds, while keeping it holiday themed, and completing the video within a week deadline. We came up with a fun concept in our studio, that the client was ultimately very impressed with the quality and results.
Kasper Launch Video
Director, Producer, DP, Editor: Stephen Ko (@skofilms) Lighting Grip: Jeffrey Vreeland 2D animations: Scott Kuo We were tasked with creating a launch video for a new appointment booking software geared towards dentists. We managed the entire production from storyboarding, scripting, casting and hiring actors, directing and shooting with crew at the client's office, and handled all post-production. The client was ultimately happy with the final video and is currently using on their website at meetkasper.com http://meetkasper.com
