Where we connect

Welcome to the Collaboratorium

We’re content creators on a mission – yours. Our producers, editors, writers, shooters, designers, and directors specialize in solutions that bridge the gap between strategic thinking and creative execution. We work in video and digital, animation and live action, long form and short, and we do it all with a distinctly collaborative approach.

Addictive. Effective. Video.

Researchers say the human attention span is shorter than a goldfish’s. But it doesn’t have to be. Video by MeanGreen, hooks viewers’ attention 9 times better than text alone! How do we do it? With super sticky, strategy-driven, uber creative content that engages and influences viewers to help you win.

People Activation Company

Mobilizing people to donate, support, enroll, resist, or persist takes serious engagement. Done right, video commands attention, challenges the intellect, and stirs emotions like nothing else. At MeanGreen, we’re well versed in the art and science of persuasion media. We call it video with purpose, and we absolutely love applying it to help campaigns, causes, and brands activate people and inspire change.

Creative Services Partnering

Why is MeanGreen so darned good at teaming with agencies, associations, non-profits, and businesses to develop and produce game changing content? That’s easy. MeanGreen’s all about the people. We’re hardly mean at all. It’s this love of people that makes us such enthusiastic collaborators, loyal partners, and reliable word-keepers. And we do it all with a relentless drive to make you better.

With MeanGreen, there’s no stress. They just take care of us.
