American Conservatory Theater: MFA Gala


The Tony Award winning American Conservatory Theater supports the only accredited MFA actor training program not affiliated with a university.

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.)

A.C.T.’s  Conservancy holds an annual awards luncheon to honor benefactors and graduates, like The Hearst Foundations, The Fleishhacker Foundation, Annette Bening and Elizabeth Banks. Flying Moose was hired to design, script, shoot and delivering five short documentary videos to introduce the honorees at the live event.

The challenge was to introduce each of the five award recipients, highlighting their professional achievements, establishing the critical role that the Conservatory played in the development of their own craft, their organization or in American theater, and to encourage generous financial support from the audience attending the Awards luncheon.

We worked closely with A.C.T., researching the background of the honorees and formulating interview questions to elicit the responses we needed top support the MFA program. We captured twenty-four interviews, shooting in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The video featured here is for the Edward Hastings Career Achievement Award, given to the four-time Academy Award–nominated actress, Annette Bening.

The five documentary videos were enthusiastically received and added critical support to the story of the Conservatory and its mission. At the event, hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised in support of the A.C.T. actor training program.

Building Information Modeling


Rudolph and Sletten is a leader in the construction of medical facilities, museums, and educational institutions throughout California.

Rudolph and Sletten

Building Information Modeling merges a diverse set of digital data to create an evolving, parametric model of a building project, helping to reduce costs, streamline project delivery, and increase communication among team members. Rudolph and Sletten needed a corporate marketing video to explain and promote Building Information Modeling (BIM) to potential clients and collaborators.

Building information modeling is a vaguely defined set of software tools and techniques. We were tasked with developing and writing a clear introduction to BIM, drawing on a multitude of new and archival video and animation.

The Moose directed Rudolph and Sletten’s partner, View By View, in the production of animated graphics and 3D stills for the video. Aerial photos, time-lapse photography and candid interviews with key owners, architects, subcontractors, and company directors were also used to clearly explain BIM and its successful application to large building projects.

Rudolph and Sletten is dedicated to using BIM technologies to maintain their position as a leading, innovative contractor.  Our video effectively communicates to both first-time clients and to industry specialists, and helps Rudolph and Sletten remain competitive in the construction industry.

Dr. Susie Wee: Women In Tech Int’l Hall of Fame Induction Video


Since 1939, Hewlett-Packard has been a leader in technology and corporate culture, inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs around the globe.


Edelman is the world’s largest public relations firm, with 67 offices and more than 4,800 employees worldwide, as well as affiliates in more than 30 cities. The San Francisco office supports many Bay Area and Silicon Valley technology companies, including Hewlett-Packard.


Women in Technology International is the premiere global organization empowering women in business and technology. Each year, WITI inducts a handful of women technologists into its Hall of Fame. In 2010, they selected Susie Wee, the CTO of Client Cloud Services at Hewlett-Packard, for the honor.

Hewlett-Packard partnered with Edelman, the global PR agency, and Flying Moose Pictures, to design and produce a profile of Dr. Wee for the annual WITI conference and website.

Our challenge was to capture the elements of Dr. Wee’s background, education, and personality that make her an outstanding leader, and specifically, how she thrives as a manager in a technical field dominated by men.

We interviewed Dr. Wee at the Hewlett-Packard campus and laboratories, focusing on the leadership skills that allow her to manage large groups of diverse designers and engineers to develop breakthrough technologies. Archival still images and video were used to visually support the story of her personal development and how that shaped her management skills.

Our documentary profile of Dr. Wee set the stage for her to receive a warm welcome at her induction into the WITI Hall of Fame.

PivotLink / SmartFocus

The PivotLink Business Intelligence Platform is designed for business users to quickly explore data to make decisions with limited IT involvement. Flying Moose Pictures was asked to write and produce a fun, fictional, client testimonial video demonstrating how the PivotLink software platform can lead to smarter and more profitable business decisions by using social media analytics.

The depth and power of the PivotLink software platform, as well as its flexibility, without the need for programming, were not widely known to potential customers. We needed to engage small businesses with a realistic case study that illustrated the benefits of the PivotLink solution.

PivotLink used the customer testimonial video to market its products on their website and at trade shows.
