About

JADED is a creative agency, as well as turnkey production and post-production house specializing in branded content.

The line has blurred between marketing and content. Today’s media must entertain, inform, and carry a brand’s message without turning away savvy media consumers. That is why we use the non-fiction form to tell authentic stories that engage your community. Whether you are one of the worlds biggest brands, a healthcare company, tech start-up, non-profit, book publisher, or think tank, the immediacy of non-fiction creates an opening for your audience to connect with your brand. Put simply, it is real stories that appeal to your customers, users, funders, and audience in today’s oversaturated media landscape.

We work with clients like Bank of America, Pandora Internet Radio, Google, SFMOMA, and many others. Our style of short-form, high quality, branded documentary brings the best of non-fiction storytelling to your message. We create content that is built for engagement and is easily shared over social media. We employ the cutting edge of documentary and non-fiction television production techniques to ensure the highest production value at affordable prices.

Our team has years of experience working in marketing, television, and documentary film, and we bring that knowledge to all of our projects. Because JADED is a boutique production company at heart, we also offer other forms of non-fiction video to our brand partners. We produce spots ranging from :15 seconds to 10 minutes. We produce television promos, web promos, and book trailers. We also produce and shoot event coverage, talks and presentations, industrials, sales videos, and training videos. In addition to all that, we find time to produce originals like our documentary web series, “It’s a Rough Life.”

Come work with us in the new frontier of social media and branded content. We understand the importance of authentic messaging, as well as working with a partner that can perform at every stage of production. We want to take your project from concept to completion. Let’s share your story.
