Goodbye, Virgin America .....

On the sad demise of the game-changing brand, Virgin America, we at Brainstorm Creative are inestimably proud to have had them as a client for many years. From the very first air-to-air shoot of an Airbus for their launch in 2007 - iconic footage over the Golden Gate Bridge that is still used to this day - to traveling all over the US filming passengers, crew, in-flight and on the ground to capture the spirit of the airline in 2015. It's been a wonderful ride Virgin America, and we have loved flying with you.

Brainstorm Completes Videos for Storyteller non-profit

Brainstorm recently completed a series of six videos for Storyteller, one of a kind non-profit in Santa Barbara  that provides therapeutic pre-school for homeless children.  Even in an outwardly affluent community like Santa Barbara, there are still parents who struggle with  finding homes, jobs and a secure environment in which to raise their children.  Working with these children and the amazing teachers and staff of Storyteller was a privilege, and we are honored to be able to serve the community by creating awareness for the extraordinary and valuable work they do.

Brainstorm ran an inspiring strengths coaching session for the Adobe Events team  at the US Grant Hotel in San Diego yesterday.  Our coaching team put together a custom agenda that made for an entertaining and  highly informative event.  The entire team were amazed to learn about strengths they never knew they had, as well as those of their colleagues.  Even a few skeptics in the room had become enthusiastic supporters by the end of the morning.
