Our team loves creating branded content for clients and agencies. Leaning on our background of viral digital shorts, we love telling stories for brands through ad campaigns. And by keeping pre-pro, production services, and post-production all in-house, we’re extremely competitive with constrained budgets.
Small Red Cape’s music videos have routinely racked up tens-of-millions of views — continually appealing to a global audience. Our 2017 music video “Back to the 90s” reached 118 million people on Facebook, charted at #11 on Billboard, and landed our team in Las Vegas with the Backstreet Boys. We love creating music videos for record labels and indepedent artists alike.
Scripted / Unscripted
Our team currently has over 20 shows in development, with multiple optioned properties. From single-camera comedies to unscripted format shows to kids animated series, Small Red Cape’s original portfolio is rapidly growing. We love collaborating with other production companies, studios, networks, and platforms to deliver our work to the masses.
