We’re all about:


We believe that killer spots start with killer concepts.  From full-scale campaigns to single stunts, we think strategically in all of our work and produce creative that is concept driven.


Copy should always be powerful, meaningful and only used when necessary. CrazyPants creates on-air, digital and print messaging that is thoughtful, witty and on-brand.  


We tell stories.  We draw emotion.  We combine music, words and images to bring viewers on a visual journey.  We LOVE style but we believe that kick-ass cuts come down to great pacing, whether it’s a network sizzle reel, movie trailer or a weekly episodic.


CrazyPants is a full service agency.  From concept stage to a sweet audio mix - clients can feel comfortable dropping a project at our door and walking away knowing that every part of the process will be managed and supervised with great attention to detail. We also know that collaboration can yield the greatest work.  We are a small production company that is focused on the needs of our clients and making the creative process as effortless and fun as possible.
