Case Studies

Small Business Administration - Office of Disaster Assistance 

Rock Creek was tasked with the script to screen production of nine promotional videos depicting a day-in-the-life of each of ODA's field offices located around the country, one informational video focused on the role of a loss verifier in the field and one promotional video for public audiences to raise awareness about the ODA and the people behind the organization.  Rock Creek pre-interviewed over 30 SBA employees and from those interviews wrote baseline scripts for each video in collaboration with key stakeholders.  The production team traveled to six states and interviewed over 50 SBA employees for the project as well as captured hundreds of hours of b-roll of the staff in the field and in their offices. The project required a keen attention to detail and exacting project and client management.

Welcome to Supervision - Customs and Border Protection

Rock Creek was tasked with producing an engaging introductory video to Customs and Border Protection’s supervisory leadership course. This task involved traveling to multiple locations on the west coast to interview top supervisors in each of the major branches of CBP – Customs, Border Patrol and Air and Marine. Prior to production Rock Creek’s producers worked closely with CBP subject matter experts to come up with a list of questions that would elicit strong and succinct answers to accurately depict the duty, responsibility and mission of a supervisor in CBP. The shoot took place over five days, traveling to four different locations and involved interviewing and shooting b-roll of each interviewee, under a very tight timetable, taking into consideration the schedules of the working CBP supervisors. The final product is still used as the introduction to the supervisor-training course for all of Customs and Border Protection staff.
