Early on in 2023, DJ Banoan and Steven Quach, creatives and owners of Hadji Studios and Aeri Productions respectively, were looking for a writer for a then un-named tech company out west. This company was looking for a video focused on the advancements in technology and the capabilities of their labs without emphasizing any particular person or being bold about their name. This was an interesting task and so different from other companies who typically want to say their name as many times in 30 seconds as they can. DJ and Steven flew out to CableLabs’ locations to meet with the client face-to-face and take pictures of the various labs that were to be featured. After the meeting, DJ sent me a brand guide that he’d constructed so that I had a clear idea of what CableLabs was looking for. Deadlines were tight. Initial concepts were due less than a week after details were provided, and a rough draft less than a week after a concept was approved. The collaboration of everyone involved made for a fantastic working environment and the revision process was incredibly smooth. The result was a Gold Viddy Award Winning Ad about the technological advancements brought about by collaborating with Cable Labs.
