Reservoir refines.

We are invested in more than first-rate execution.  We also support your strategy, distilling your goals and imperatives into compelling video concepts.  

We make this possible through an efficient initial discovery process marked by careful listening, thoughtful questions and, where warranted, dedicated research.  Achieving and surpassing your goals requires a partner that learns fast to capture your brand’s needs and values.

 

Reservoir refreshes.

We capture each client’s identity, mission, culture, differentiators and impact through dynamic, cinematic storytelling.  We bring a fresh perspective that stays on-brand while introducing new ideas, messaging and/or visuals that are often co-opted by clients in their other communications.

Our award-winning team is well-versed in all forms of storytelling for screens and matches our technique to your needs.

 

Reservoir transforms.

Our ultimate commitment to you is to help viewers of your videos become your customers, investors, supporters and champions.  Over a decade in business, we have consistently surpassed our clients’ expectations for return-on-investment.


Testify!

The team at Reservoir Films was able to quickly understand a very complicated marketplace, our revolutionary new solution and its capabilities and then create a simple, entertaining animated video that easily explains what we do, how we do it and the value to our customers. They videos they created made a significant impact to our launch and new website and we continually receive compliments on the quality, clarity and creativity of these videos.

Reservoir Films has produced videos for presentation at our annual benefits and online since 2012. They are–in a word–spectacular. They capture all that we do in fresh, compelling, remarkable fashion. Their productions have been an enormous success and we will use them for years to come.

Reservoir created two amazing videos for the Children’s Museum of Manhattan that captured the spirit and detail of our work on a very short timetable. They are thoughtful, talented producers who ascertain the heart of an institution and tell the story with a combination of words and visuals that truly sing. Their instincts are to be trusted completely. They are a pleasure to work with and very receptive to input and ideas and have a deliberate approach that embraces creativity and thoughtfulness.
— Andrew Ackerman - Executive Director, Children’s Museum of Manhattan
With a microscopic timeline, Reservoir turned around a piece of work for MOUSE that - in only a few minutes - better captured the story of our work for external stakeholders than we’ve done over the course of our 15 years telling it. We were thrilled by their responsiveness, sensitivity and attention to detail in dealing with a narrative that is so close to our hearts.
