ATB Productions worked closely with B/A Products Co. to create a PSA for the "Move Over" Law. B/A creates products for the towing and emergency services industry, so this law hits close to home with them. They wanted some thing that had a narrative storyline without a voice over that left the audience feeling. The roadside is a dangerous place so we wanted the audience to "feel" the speed of the cars going by and have that fear in the back of the mind. For more information check out B/A for details.
We came to Budget Blinds with the idea of creating a set of Reality TV spoofed commercials. We shot 3 to run in their store regions and they were so pleased with the results a few weeks into the campaign they began to run statewide.
This video was shown at our 25th Anniversary Celebration at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway on May 11, 2017.
Archie Jamieson is a Baltimore Comedian and a pretty great dude. I've know Archie for about as long as he's been doing comedy and I've always admired his work ethic. For the past two years he's been nose to the grindstone working on his material. So when he came to ATB with the idea of putting together a half hour, we were already in.
A lot of people came together to make this thing happen. Thanks to Leeland Clayton, another Baltimore comedian, who brought in his camera to pick up a third angle for the shoot. We only had one chance at filming his set so this helped cover up any camera flubs our Ursa Mini/GH5 had. Thanks to Mike Franklin for bringing his sound equipment to help capture audio that night. It's a tricky balance to capture live sound at a show like this and it wouldn't have been as great without everyone working together. Thanks to Russel & The Windup Space for giving Archie the date as well as letting us record this in the bar.
Editing a piece like this is great because the material is funny so you don't mind having to watch it a few times. I think people are going to enjoy the special because if after cutting away at it for two weeks I still catch myself laughing out loud, coming in with fresh eyes must be amazing.
Thanks again to everyone involved behind the scenes, everyone who came out, our backs for not giving out, and to Archie for making this special!
Recorded live at The Windup Space in Baltimore, MD.
At ATB we love to tell stories that have heart, so when Paul Wolman of Feats Inc and The Fund for Educational Excellence reached out to ATB Productions to inquire about doing some videos for the "Heart of the School Awards", we couldn't have been more honored.
The "Heart of the School" is an award that honors principals from all around Baltimore for the tough job that they do. Our task was to make a video for Five Finalists that would be played at the Award ceremony held at the legendary Hippodrome theater filled with principals, teachers, and community members from all over the city.
The Honorees were all outstanding individuals, so the task showcasing why they were so great was only difficult due to the fact that we had to keep each video right at or around two minutes.
Overall, it was an amazing experience and we are proud to have been apart of this great event.
Check out the videos on These great leaders.

First project we've worked on together with Don Neil. Hopefully won't be the last!
JMT Technology Group was looking to revamp their brand with a new website that featured video as the primary messaging source. After a few rounds of creative sessions, ATB developed a portfolio of video that introduces the JMT Technology Group to a new audience, gave an overview of what they do, and the solutions that they provide. This suite of video provides a 360 view of JMT and their capabilities.
Video we did for molinapizza.com/
A great new old world-styled pizza shop located at R.House in Remington, Baltimore.
This documentary shows the building of an educational pillar on the west side of Baltimore. We followed the nine month process taking a run down building and developing it with 23 million dollars of private funding to create a new hope in education in an area that was lacking one.

Warren's Wood Works is a lumber yard on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. They specialize in having hard to find and top quality wood. They are the experts in customization and looked to ATB to give them some exposure in this market. We coupled that with a web video to give them a 1-2 punch both in the tv market and then a little more in-depth when they landed on the website.
B/A Products came to us looking to create a video that captured who they were, what they stood for, and how they did it. B/A Products are built in the USA from a factory in Maryland, they create products that are the industry leader when it comes to securing vehicles.

Smart Logic are the good guys of software. We got to hang out with them one day in the office in Brewers Hill. They should us their space then shared their philosophy and process. If you've ever been to a tech event in Baltimore then you've probably met these guys as they often supply the beer. They are good dudes doing great work.
"Say Your Name" is a piece of work we are particularly proud of, not because of thecamera work or edit, (it's pretty basic), but because it's content that makes a difference. Matthew Manning is a talented improv'er, but here takes us on a different journey. I like it because not enough people are talking like this.

Sony recording artist the Future is one of the biggest names in the industry, so when ATB got asked to do handle the post production on his documentary "I'm Just Being Honest" we jumped at the opportunity. The documentary shows as Future travels the world, goes into studio with super producers Pharrell and DJ KHALED, shoots music videos, and talks about his relationship with Ciara. The documentary premiered on MTV2 and then released globally. Check it out.

Ours to Own is an amazing platform that allows everyday civilians to invest into the city they live and love while earning a return. It's always great to do projects with great people but also helps to create a better Baltimore. We love this city and it's Ours to Own was another example where we got to show it.
ATB linked up with Factory PR to produce this branded content piece for Macy's junior brand "Maison Jules" . We followed famed fashion blogger and photographer Garance Doré in picturesque Charleston, South Carolina. It was awesome to see her process, she's truly an inspiration.
Excellence In Fitness came to ATB looking to shape a narrative in the fitness market. They specialize in personal training and were looking for an exclusive group of people who were on a time crunch but valued one on one training. For this spot, we went with the busy mom who's needs to stay as active as her kids.

"The First Promise" was a story I had to tell. It's a recreation of the first date with my wife. After a kind of a so-so date, she didn't think it was going anywhere, however, I felt it and made my first promise to see it through. We are currently going on 11 years, so I guess I keep my promises.
I really want to thank Josh Kuderna and Abby Fanara for being in this short. They were awesome and I couldn't have been happier with their performances.

David Warnock is someone that ATB has had the privilege of working with for two years now, doing work for his Warnock Foundation and then documenting the creation of Green Street Academy, so when he decided to run for mayor we were super pleased to help tell his story to Baltimore. We believe in David and hope that the videos can help him turn Baltimore around.
The Warnock Foundation is a non-profit that centers around raising expectations in the city of Baltimore. We've had the privilege of creating video for them for everything from documenting the building of a "Green" school on Baltimore impoverished west side to highlighting social entrepreneurs doing good for the community.

We linked up with Aesthetic Distance, a fashion blog out of the DMV for some BTS on a few of their shoots. We were looking to test out our new Black Magic Ursa Mini 4.6k camera and had the opportunity to shoot in in a variety of different situations, the first low light, then anamorphic, and finally during the day. They are all pretty good times.
