OUR REEL
Sometimes it's easier to show people what you do than tell them. With that in mind, take a peek into our Soapbox zoetrope to get a flavor of what we cook here. Then click around the site to see what we've been up to lately. We've been really busy.
Lovett
Eye Of The Storm
LOVETT - EYE OF THE STORM
Fly above the clouds into a steam punk world and discover why this music video went viral and found a humbling fan base on YouTube asking for more. The video features not only the rich, haunting music of Ben Lovett (musician moniker Lovett), but also a striking visual style that, thanks to DP Craig Kief, earned a spotlight in an issue of American Cinematographer magazine. With virtually no budget, passion was the fuel powering the dirigible for this project. And, unanimously, we all agree it was worth it.
Muppets Studio
AMC Theaters Policy Trailer
MUPPETS STUDIO - AMC THEATERS POLICY TRAILER
If you found yourself in an AMC Movie Theater in the fall of 2011, you most likely found us, too - in a very unique way. We've all seen the etiquette reminders that play before the movie begins, "No talking, no texting, no screaming etc etc." However, you've never seen one with those hilariously charming and fuzzy characters we all know as the Muppets! Join the gang and find your seat... before Miss Piggy finds it for you.
Earth
The Next Generation
EARTH - THE NEXT GENERATION
We cast over a dozen young actors to create this co-branded PSA to promote the DisneyNature Film Earth and Disney's Plant a Tree effort.
Jordin Sparks
The World I Knew
JORDIN SPARKS - THE WORLD I KNEW
To help promote the DisneyNature film African Cats, we brought music star Jordin Sparks through our orange soundstage doors and onto the set of a vast African plain to sing her heartfelt song, "The World I Knew." While the practical waterfall on set was impressive, it was Sparks' passionate performance that really captivated us all. No wonder she holds the 2007 American Idol crown!
Broken Bells
The Ghost Inside
BROKEN BELLS - THE GHOST INSIDE
In this Sci-Fi fantasy we take actress Christina Hendricks (of Mad Men fame) on an adventure she will never forget. To re-create the look of our favorite movies from the late 70's and early 80's, Soapbox & longtime creative partner Pop Films shot for six days on-location and in our sound stage and created over 50 visual effects shots of 3D animation, rotoscoping, and lots of old-fashioned miniature models. And in an exciting bit of news, it was just nominated for a 2010 MTV Video Music Award
Swell Season
Low Rising
SWELL SEASON - LOW RISING
It's not easy to find someone willing to let you dump rainwater all over their pristine South Pasadena home. But when it's for the Academy Award winning musical duo Swell Season (of Once fame), the doors open just a little bit easier. Enjoy this bittersweet tale helmed by another independent musical sensation-turned director Samuel Beam, also known as Iron & Wine.
Steve Rushton
Ready to Rock
STEVE RUSHTON - READY TO ROCK
We turned hollywood records' pop star Steve Rushton into a secret agent to help the stars of Disney's "G-Force" battle the forces of evil for his "Ready To Rock" music video. Designed to utilize existing character animation from the movie, this is another project Soapbox created from beginning to end, from coming up with the concept to directing to creating the comic book likeness of Steve Rushton. Check out those rock n' roll lens flares!
OK Go
Muppet Show Theme Song
OK GO - MUPPET SHOW THEME SONG
It's no secret that the members of the rock band OK Go are huge Muppet fans. And we mean HUGE. It's also no secret that we happen to enjoy them a bit as well. Okay, maybe a lot. But what IS a secret is that the lovable dog in the video is lead singer/guitarist Damian Kalush's personal dog named Bunny. And when the collaboration between us, Muppets Studio, OK Go and Bunny came to light, it was difficult to say who was most excited. Please, join in the excitement and sing along: It's time to put on music... it's time to light the lights... it's time for the Muppets to ruin an OK Go music video. In the best way of course.
The Muppets & Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody
THE MUPPETS & QUEEN - BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
This one sure caused a lot of hubbub. After millions of views and 4 Webby Awards, this musical homage continues to be the most popular Muppet video on the Internet. Not to mention it sold a bunch of Queen records (as well as a bunch of the Muppet version on iTunes.) Mammaaaaaa!
Step Up 3D
Atlanta Dance Dub
STEP UP 3D - ATLANTA DANCE DUB
Tasked with filming in 4 cities simultaneously, Soapbox producers scattered across America to film an elaborate dance contest in which each city created their own unique 4 minute long dance routine... and it had to be captured ALL IN ONE SHOT! Here is the imaginative and entertaining submission from the ATL.
Get Hatched
with Teri Hatcher
GET HATCHED - WITH TERI HATCHER
In this web series for Family.com, we created some unique production scenarios where Teri gets the opportunity to connect with real people and discuss real topics. Depending on the need, a guest could be featured in any one of these distinct "shows," be it a friend promoting a book, a chef showing us a new recipe, or just some women from around the country chatting with Teri over webcam.
Hannah Montana
Hoedown Throwdown Dance Breakdown
HANNAH MONTANA - HOEDOWN THROWDOWN DANCE BREAKDOWN
In order for a dance craze to sweep the nation, kids first need to know how to actually DO all the steps. That's where Miley Cyrus and Super-Choreographer Jamal Sims come to the rescue with this viral phenomenon we created to promote Hannah Montana: The Movie. See if you can keep up!
From Bad to Cursed
Book Trailer
FROM BAD TO CURSED - BOOK TRAILER
Welcome to the Sunshine Club. A club that, despite its cheerful name, possesses some of the darkest secrets. Watch the evil unfurl in our book trailer for the chilling novel "From Bad To Cursed" (the second book in the "Bad Girls Don't Die" trilogy) by author Katie Alender. Featuring Zendaya Coleman, star of Disney Channel's "Shake It Up," click play and enter the sisterhood - that is... if you think you're perfect.
Bad Girls Don't Die
Book Trailer
BAD GIRLS DON'T DIE - BOOK TRAILER
In author Katie Alender's book "Bad Girls Don't Die," the teenage protagonist gets haunted by the restless ghost of a young girl who died a violent death many years earlier. Meanwhile, she's still got high school drama to worry about. It's a creepy book, and a pretty creepy book trailer.
My Super Psycho Sweet 16
MY SUPER PSYCHO SWEET 16
When our friends at Pop Films asked us to post a feature-length film they were shooting for MTV called "My Super Psycho Sweet 16" we jumped at the chance. I think we actually said "OMG, totes!" It ended up being one of the highest rated programs MTV had ever aired, so popular that we produced and posted a series of hosted wraps (shot here at Soapbox) starring the cast for a special Halloween version of the movie.

Soapox is currently in post on the sequel: "My Super Psycho Sweet 16: Part 2." Yes, really.
