Favorite Videos 2000-2019

Transvideo’s Video Favorites

It’s hard to believe but Transvideo is now in its fifth decade of existence. Founded in 1981, we have been making videos since Jimmy Carter was in office, since VHS and BETA were the big new things, and before the Internet, and…well, you get the idea.

There have been major changes over the years – from the construction of our state-of-the-art studio in 1992 to the formation of our creative agency, Picturelab, to an ownership change in 2017 – through it all, we have continued to create excellent videos for our clients worldwide.

To celebrate, here are some of our favorite videos.

Blippy Explainer Video
Featured on TechCrunch, this video showed the power of an explainer video. It took a very controversial product and made it fun. The startup didn’t survive – it was a very risky idea, after all – but our explainer succeeded in alleviating a lot of the concerns people had about using it.

Checkpoints Explainer Video
We love animated explainers, and we love character animation most of all. Especially when the characters are round squishy little guys. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that the product was pretty cool, too.

Quest for Credit
Yes, we actually did an animated short. More branded content than a commercial, this epic adventure for Mint explored the dangers of mismanaging your money. I wish I saw this my Freshman year in College!

We love working with kids and we love working with tech companies. So this Box video featuring some really smart kids making a case for the Crunchies Award was a blast.

Google Maps Street View Launch Video
Yes, the Street View launch video! It’s hard to believe there was a time before Google Street View. But in 2007, it was a new thing and Google asked us to create a launch video to show how it all works. This video amassed 2 million views on YouTube in 2 days, and currently is at 13 million.

Mint: A Trillion Dollar Visualized
The entire world was going through some tough times at the end of the 2000s. Trillion dollars seemed like another number being thrown around at this time. But to visualize it is staggering. This branded content piece for Mint helps us to see what a trillion dollars, which was only one tenth of the bailout during the Great Recession of 2008, looks like.

My Cup of Tea featuring Varsha Saxena
We created some branded content pieces for Sloths Tea. One of our most enjoyable projects, we found normal people doing what makes them happy and made a micro-documentary out of them. Here’s one in the series of videos we created for this tea brand.

NORAD Santa Tracker 2008
For Christmas 2008, Google and NORAD teamed up to track Santa’s journey so people could follow along. We were there to document it all as shown in this fun highlights video.

Pebble iOS Notifications Launch
We love wearable tech. And though Pebble eventually shut down and the IP purchased by FitBit, we had a blast making this video in 2013.

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – A Focus on Malnutrition in India
Transvideo worked on many pro-bono projects for non-profit organizations. We created this educational animated video for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to inform viewers about nutrition in third world countries. One of the most rewarding projects we’ve worked on to date.

As you can see, Transvideo has had a strong 40 year run so far as a premier video production company, and still going strong. If you would like to be a part of our on-going history, contact us at info@transvideo.com.
