Videographer Steve Kreuser, ContentVia’s Digital Media Director, said,when asked about the project, “In today’s mobile ad-space environement, where commercials bookend almost everything on the web, compelling info-tainment that rises above the din of advertising to ramain embedded in the minds of consumers is our main objective.  From 15 second ‘brandings’ to 3 minute ‘explainers’, our advertising campaigns are covering the who, how, and why of emerging technologies in an energetic and entertaining format.”
