HD VIDEO PRODUCTION
It’s always great to be able to spread our creative wings and produce a national commercial; especially one we can have so much fun with, like tourism. Capital City Lake Murray Country, the largest recreational lake area in SC, needed a new HD 30 second TV spot that would capture the variety of attractions, dining, history and water activities in this four-county region. The first question we posed to ourselves was - "How do we give the viewer the experience without ever being there?" We knew the variety of activities would provide the footage we needed but the decision to create original exciting music was the key that brought it all together. AIS co-wrote and produced the song "Come Alive" and then based our storyboard after it. With creative "lead-in" transitions and colorfully animated visuals, AIS successfully went beyond the client's expectations. In the end, Capital City Lake Murray Country's Spot received the highest viewership in South Carolina beating out both the State and Charleston's tourism spots. The longer Web version increased their social media viewership by 230 percent!

AIS recently took an aspiring client’s marketing plan to a whole new level. After testing video through the client’s large social media following, we created a monthly Web Show to educate followers about organic foods and highlight their products Who needs a newsletter when you can have a webshow? .

SOCIAL MEDIA SOLUTIONS
When our client DCBA, a clinical documentation company, decided to tap into the children’s hospital market, they were challenged with how to get their foot in the door with the larger hospitals that specialize in children's medicine. A well-known children’s hospital in Denver was searching for a clinical documentation company. Although not selected from their first meeting, DCBA, along with three other companies, was later asked to return and make a presentation for the hospital documentation account. Atlanta Idea Studio approached DCBA and presented them with a creative idea to kick off their presentation to the hospital. Why not create some initial excitement with a short humorous video that took kids and put them in various adult-like situations that just didn’t “Fit?” End result- DCBA bought the idea, Atlanta Idea Studio wrote and produced the video, the children’s hospital in Denver loved it, and DCBA won the account! That’s the power of a creative video.
For the last 3 years, we have worked with DCBA as their exclusive Internet Marketing partner. As a part of this plan, we manage their pay per click (PPC) campaigns and also create original content in the form of articles, forums, blogs, videos and infographics that are used to educate and gain new clients. We have seen a continual increase in visitor traffic over the past three years (currently at 500% from baseline) leading to a significant growth in new business and separating DCBA from their current competitors.
20 years ago this week, Forrest Gump was released into theaters. A great reason to celebrate! Why? Well, let's see: unbelievable cast, terrific screenplay, memorable lines, and my favorite...locations. You see, I was actually a freshman at SCAD in savannah when they were shooting Forrest Gump. Also I lived and worked in and around Beaufort, SC for many years where the other beautiful backdrops were filmed. Shrimping boats, Vietnam, and of course the Gump Boarding House location, which I finally found after several years. So what's my point besides making you day-dream about being "a real shrimpin' boat captain?"...read more
For years now I have been saying this quote. It was something ingrained into me years ago by my father who has a great creative mind. So what does it mean you ask? Like most things, the more complicated the "whatever," the harder it is to understand. And when someone can't understand something, they don't want it. End result....loss of revenue.
If you're thinking about creating a brand, video campaign, or anything marketing...take a note from Apple who is one of the biggest brands in history and who also kept it simple....read more.
