WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS BUILT BY NINJAS THING ANYWAY?
Well, honestly, this whole thing started out as a way for 2 guys who had been friends for a while to spend more time together making cool stuff. Jaret and Heath were living in separate states and had talked forever about teaming up on a project sometime. Things would come and things would go, but they just never seemed to pull it together. But, they knew it had to happen…so they formed this production company to make it more official.
Their goal was simple, find bands who needed great videos made but didn’t have a ton of cash to unload on production. Hey, we’re not saying they wouldn’t have taken a ton of cash for doing a killer video or two…but come on, those days are gone. They knew that they had to change the model of music video production…cut costs, but never make it look like you did.
With both of the guys located in the Midwest, their goal was to bring artists out of the coasts to work with amazingly qualified, talented people who were accustomed to charging less for their services. Built By Ninjas was established on the principle of “doing what’s right”. The guys look for creative ways to bend rules and work around obstacles to create great music videos.
Built By Ninjas has been highly successful in getting the work they create for their clients out to the masses. A majority of the videos produced by Built By Ninjas have spread rapidly through the internet, hitting major music sites and blogs…and, several of their videos have made it to broadcast television in the UK and USA on popular music channels including Kerrang!, Skuzz TV & MTVU.
Another major principle that Built By Ninjas follows is to “have fun”. Making music videos can be stressful, and filled with attitudes and egos. Built By Ninjas drops all of this and does what they do because they enjoy it. If they can dedicate their creativity and skills to an artist who can gain more awareness because they have a great video…then the guys feel that they have done their job.
