Rebecca Blue Media

WHO ARE WE?
The RBM team is made up of misfit filmmakers and business nerds who travel the world crafting stories that contaminate the pocket computers we're all addicted to. As a company, we're a weird mix between a video production company and social media agency. With a natural inclination to social media and an expertise in story structure, we have the upper hand when it comes to producing monthly video content for companies because, unlike our competition, we drive actual business results.
 
During a period of 6- or 12-months, RBM creates videos on a monthly basis, optimized to best serve the platforms already commanding the attention of specific customers for our clients. Our creative decisions derive from insights gained through the micro-content we produce, making RBM's content the bees knees. We specialize in creating short-form video marketing content and documentary-style brand stories for companies all over the world... or anyone who has a dog. We're bias to those who love pups as much as we do.
 
Like a lot.
