HearSay with Joey

Joey is an expert in all things video and motion graphics. When a client comes to HS looking to make an impact on a visual platform, it’s up to Joey to bring their vision to life and exceed their expectations.

But how exactly does Joey work on visual storytelling, and what is his creative process like? To find out, we asked him a few questions to dig deeper into all things video.

What is a day in the life of Joey Schultz like?

Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Snooze bar. Get dressed. Go to the office. Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. Get to work. Typically, after work I will take my dog, Bart, and maybe my cat, Harai, for a walk or an adventure. Or, I go to Judo class on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Later in the night, I generally work on something or hang out with my wife, rather than watching TV (I do watch a bit of TV though). I’m rewatching Dexter at the moment. Right now, I am working on a second strategy guide for the game Hive. I usually call it a night around 10:30.

How does a video help a client?

Moving pictures are better than regular pictures.

I think what video does for a client is help them communicate with their would be customers. Video can provide information that is useful for a client’s customers in a tricky way–people don’t like to read or take time to do anything, so a video is a nice way to entice someone into learning the desired info. They won’t read, but they may watch/listen.

What do you love about making motion graphics?

Well, the feeling about making something that is “right” and helpful, is a good one. But really, after I get to make motion graphics, design work, copy editing, or anything similar for clients, I get to use my skills to create what I want for myself. For example, I want to produce a strategy guide… So I do it.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Getting paid!!!!!!!!!

But also, having some sort of responsibility weighs well on a fella’s livelihood…and knowing that some clients and coworkers are truly grateful for what I can produce.

If you were a tile from Hive, which one would you be?

I’d be a new piece called insecticide. Like rock, paper, scissors, but insecticide always wins.

HearSay with Mel Schulte

It’s not every day we get a chance to sit down and talk with Media Specialist Mel Schulte. In fact, it’s quite rare. That’s because Mel has one of the busiest responsibilities in the agency: managing media and keeping up on all the latest platforms and opportunities. She took a break from her massive spreadsheet collection to share a few thoughts with us. How actively does one have to keep up on all the media/platform advertising options out there? I am constantly looking for new media options. There are always new trends, platforms and opportunities presenting themselves. However, it’s not…

HearSay with Toby

An effective marketer channels their inner creativity to help elevate the message of an organization, and for our money, Toby’s one of the best when it comes to this. We decided to dive deeper into his process by asking him how he approaches each project and, above all, creates results for our clients. What is the key to balancing creativity with data and strategy? It’s probably a bit of a cop out to say, but they are so interwoven to me that data, strategy and creative are really just different reflections on the same, funky coin. We have more data…
