Turning great ideas into greater results
Here's some of our best work
Our film, web, and design deliverables help make decisions, win awards, generate new customers, and communicate a whole lot of information.
GameStop x Funko "Bounty Hunter Collection"
FWD:labs was asked by GameStop to produce a series of seven videos promoting their collaboration with Funko. Our shorts were seen by hundreds of thousands on social media, generating additional sales.
David Sheingold "Gasoline"
FWD:labs came recommended to the musician from one of our other videos and we worked with the artist to come up with a creative approach to his idea for wanting to get something splashed on his face for his first professional music video.
FWD:labs collaborated on messaging and locations for impactful on-campus interviews. We also edited together in-house footage from trips and campus b-roll. And we shaped a multi-part storyline to help engage prospective students, to feel empowered, welcomed, and represented at Oxy.
National Union of Healthcare Workers
FWD:labs produces scripted and unscripted videos for the union as well as multiple custom WordPress plugins plus front-end landing pages, helping position values and stories to highlight campaigns and topics.
UCLA Graduate Division "Impact Stories"
FWD:labs crafted short portrait videos on pre-planned subject matters for the division of UCLA which spans all of their graduate programs. They found the case studies, and we produced the rest.
Polaroid "The Mandalorian"
FWD:labs was reached out to by Polaroid's social media agency to do an unboxing video. What we delivered won a Telly Award.
Troy Creative Inc.
FWD:labs collaborated with the boutique video shop on their design while handling all of the back-end of their CMS-powered website.

Inspiring innovation on the daily
We also make web apps on the side — because we can
One web app is for films and filmmakers to show off their best work. Another is for social media marketing analytics to chart out the next ad buy. We made a small business bookkeeping web app to organize expenses and revenue. There's even one for mobile apps to browse by film job needs. And one more just celebrated 27 years online (with a 22 episode web series). They're all about solving problems, saving time, and being helpful.
From small businesses to big ideas
Our clients hire us to create simple solutions and/or solve complex problems
We often help elevate startups, unions, higher-ed, nonprofits, and entertainment clients.
Together, we can make something great
Based in Los Angeles and founded by cinematographer Aaron Proctor, FWD:labs has been in business since 2006.
