Artistic Floors Houston came to atgnat™ in search of a website design that would be better than any of its competitors. The client didn’t have a current website and was starting from scratch. The owner wanted a website that would dazzle the user but also be informational. He also wanted a website video host to give his site something no one else had.
After an initial meeting with the Artistic Floors, we learned about his many services and then found the best way to feature all of them on the newly designed website. He also wanted to highlight his work through his own before and after photos. In a remodeling business, actual pictures of the work were crucial. atgnat™ wanted to make sure these photos were large enough to be seen and showcase the detail. Unique graphic design elements give the photos even more dazzle.
The website video host was added to four pages. Although the host comes onto the screen, all functions of the website continue to operate. A user can still click on any button or link and be directed to that section. The website video host segments gave him an immediate attention grabber. Owner Esteban Duran said no other flooring company had this unique video feature.
A few months after the initial website launched, Artistic Floors needed video production. He wanted to add internet videos to his website. The pictures added a nice touch, but adding before and after video tours would give his website a new dimension. As of October 1, 2009, atgnat has produced three different internet videos.

The opening was created using video highlights, graphics and animations.
The Honky Tonk Heroes is a Houston band that writes and sings classic country. In early 2008, the band was releasing a new CD titled "Paybacks Are Hell", and to promote the release, the group appeared on local TV show Great Day Houston. We wanted to follow the band members and see what life was like for a small-town band trying to make it in the big city. The short documentary, or as we call it, a honkumentary, takes a peak into their world. We watched them unload their own gear, do sound checks and perform live on TV. Atgnat was restricted to only shooting the practices, and therefore, we ended this piece with the actual broadcast footage of the show.
In order for this style of video to work, we let the camera roll the entire time. As you’ll see, the characters in the band make the piece come to life.
Texas Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists wanted to produce a DVD that would be informative to its patients, prospective employees and even its current staff. With 25 doctors, 14 locations and 3 branches, the practice is large. The administration wanted to have a clear message about everything the company does. By producing a video, viewers could learn that basic ENT care was just one facet of the company. In fact, the plastic surgery, audiology and neurotology divisions are a large portion of the practice.
Atgnat met with the client and broke the video down into seven chapters. Texas ENT Specialists wanted to brand itself to explain who it is, what it does and what its core ideology is. Plus, it wanted to include as many of its doctors as possible. The shoot consisted of 11 doctor interviews, two patient interviews and b-roll footage of doctors interacting with patients.. The taping was done over two days. Atgnat then wrote and voiced all the scripts, created all the graphics, edited the pieces and put it to DVD.

harris country sheriff's office
Atgnat won a bid to produce a recruitment video for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. The video’s goal was to attract the best recruits from around the county, city, state and country. In order to compete with other agencies, the video had to be exciting, thrilling and moving. When a viewer watched it, we wanted them to walk away saying, “Wow, what a cool career! I want to work for the HCSO.”
In order to accomplish this, Atgnat needed to get compelling sound bites, create sensational graphics, add original music and creatively edited the story into a quickly paced piece. In all, 15 segments were produced.
The employees were interviewed on a black screen. During post-production, they were then put in front of a rotating, 3-D badge. The dark look gives the piece an edgy appearance. The supporting or b-roll footage was shot over the several months. Atgnat’s crew was on stand-by and called away with just a moment’s notice to get to crime scenes or busts.
When the project was finished, the DVD was more than 52 minutes long.
In order to reach a bigger audience, the HCSO Jobs website was created. This full-flash website showcased all sections of the DVD. It had a direct link for prospective employees to apply for a job. Each month, the site averages more than 7,100 unique visitors a month. HCSO reports for the first time its recruitment is steady instead of up and down waves it’s typically seen.
outfit outlet / just in
A local advertising firm, Furber Advertising, contacted atgnat’s video production team about shooting commercials for two local clothing stores that were owned by the same parent company. Furber’s client wanted to feature as many outfits from the stores as possible. The owner was on a limited budget and needed the commercials turned around quickly.
Furber and the store owner provided the models for the shoot. Each store featured three different models. Using an HD video camera, atgnat shot the models in front of the green chroma key screen in atgnat’s studio. The chief of photography directed the models in their moves to ensure we were getting the footage we needed to showcase the clothing line. The models also changed into multiple outfits. Atgnat then created the virtual backgrounds, added music and edited the spots together.
The spots aired on KIAH-TV WB 39 , KTXH-TV My 20 and KRIV- TV FOX 26.
evolution of fitness - houston
When you’re opening a new business that will compete against national chains, you’ve got to set yourself apart from the large competitors. Evolution of Fitness was opening a new revolutionary work-out facility called EVO. Atgnat was hired to help the company promote the facility on the internet and in print media.
We produced a video to play on the EVO website that featured original graphics, animations and digital photo elements. Instead of interviewing the owners in front of a sweaty gym, we shot them on a chroma key screen allowing us to change their background to fit the topic. We focused on why EVO was different than those other “meat market” gyms. We wanted prospective clients to know this was a personalized fitness plan and gym to help you reach your fitness and health goals.
In addition to producing the video, we also created print pieces and bought the ad space in prominent fitness magazines in Houston.
lifechurch fort bend
Life Church Fort Bend wanted to attract more parishioners. Atgnat was hired to produce a :30 second commercial. The commercial consisted of atgnat interviewing the pastor, parishioners, and band members to help the viewer get an overall look at what a great community gathers at Life Church Fort Bend.
Atgnat wrote, shot and post-produced the piece. In addition, atgnat placed the media buy. To better target the right audience, atgnat bought commercial spots in Comcast Cable’s Fort Bend County channels instead of the entire Houston area. This saved the church money and ensured the right target market was reached.
After the commercial was finished, atgnat used the same footage to produce a promotional video that could air on the church’s website. The piece was used on the church’s homepage for more than a year.
Atgnat worked with the church’s website team to ensure the proper video and controller placement.
California dentist Jeff Berger wanted to attract more patients and have them learn more about him and his practice before even stepping foot into his office. He hired atgnat to produce a DVD and internet videos. Atgnat flew to California for the video production. We interviewed Dr. Berger, his patients and staff. We wrote the scripts, created the graphics and edited the pieces. The DVDs were created with a full-color mailer sleeve that allowed Dr. Berger to drop a DVD directly in the mail.
In addition, the DVD chapters were converted to flash and made available to his website design team. By putting the videos on both DVDs and the internet, Dr. Berger is able to reach more potential clients and increase his marketing share.
shelter from the storm
On the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we completed the documentary short ''Shelter from the Storm.'' This documentary chronicles the amazing hurricane shelter operation in Houston, Texas, that was established in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We tell the story of how Harris County Judge Robert Eckels and his team operated the largest shelter operation in U.S. history. Atgnat used footage provided by Judge Eckels from the week of the hurricane. In addition, atgnat shot all the interviews, wrote the documentary and post-produced it.
Dr. Henry Mentz saw a dramatic return on his investment from the plastic surgery DVD produced by atgnat. He wanted to take the same approach for his non-surgical practice. He hired atgnat to produce and shoot six video segments for his MediSpa. Atgnat delivered the videos electronically to his website design firm. All the videos were placed on Dr. Mentz’s MediSpa website.
Dr. Henry Mentz is one the founding surgeons for the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mentz has been known as a leader in the industry for plastic surgery. He wanted to make sure his marketing reflected this too.
Atgnat produced a promotional DVD that featured all aspects of Dr. Mentz’s practice. Atgnat interviewed Dr. Mentz, his patients and his staff. We shot office and surgical footage. To really tell his story, we used many before and after pictures. We had Dr. Mentz explain what he did with each patient. When viewers watch the DVD, they can truly see the magic that Dr. Mentz can do. Whether it was breast procedures, body contouring, ab or pec sketching, facial procedures or his non-surgical treatments, viewers could learn about the process and the results. They could decide what procedures they wanted before they even met with Dr. Mentz and his team.
In addition, we made all of the chapters available on several of his websites. Dr. Mentz could attract new patients through both the web and his hand-out DVD. He encouraged his patients to take the DVDs and pass them out to their friends. Dr. Mentz said the videos were the best investment he’s made. “The video vignettes on the website have given us a five-fold increase in our traffic and in our contact numbers. That validates the price of the video in about two weeks.” Our videos have a proven great ROI.
Dr. German Newall is a Houston plastic surgeon and one of the founding partners of the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery. He wanted to increase his patients and cut back on his office time to allow more time for surgery. Atgnat produced a DVD and internet video vignettes for him to showcase his work.
The goals of the videos were to educate patients about Dr. Newall, explain his expertise in several plastic surgery procedures and showcase his work through before and after photos. The DVD was broken down into several chapters including body contouring, breast procedures, liposuction, Brazilian butt lifts, facelifts and more. Before even meeting Dr. Newall, patients could have questions answered and decide which procedure interested them. The DVDs were packaged in a full-color mailer sleeve that allowed Dr. Newall’s staff to simply add postage to the DVD and put in the mail. No extra packaging was required.
Dr. Newall noticed an immediate impact on his business. “It makes my clinic run smoothly because they are already educated on the many things that I do. Secondly, I think it makes my sign up rate much faster and easier, probably an increase of about 25% to 30%.”
Dr. Christopher Patronella is a prominent Houston plastic surgeon and a founding partner of the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery. With many plastic surgeons to choose from in the area, Dr. Patronella wanted to separate himself from his competitors. He asked atgnat to help him by producing video vignettes that could be combined in a DVD or stand alone on his website.
Atgnat suggested interviewing his patients. Their testimonials with their before and after pictures could truly showcase Dr. Patronella’s work. The video vignettes also had to reflect Dr. Patronella as a surgeon and a caring doctor. We wanted patients to get to know Dr. Patronella before even stepping into his office.
Our video production team interviewed his patients, his staff and shot footage of both his office and him in surgery. During post-production, we were able to display his before and after photos effectively.
His videos were delivered in a fully produced DVD and through internet videos. We worked with Dr. Patronella’s website design firm to ensure the videos were properly placed on his website.
