As a creative business, Indigo understands the importance of properly showcasing one’s work, products, accomplishments, and success stories.
Sizzle reels—sometimes referred to as demo reels, highlight reels, promo reels or creds reels—are a critical component of any communication portfolio. In many cases, the sizzle reel will be the first thing that your prospective customer will see when evaluating your work, product, or service.
Given this reality, creating a captivating and attention-grabbing video can make the difference between a sale and a lost opportunity. In today’s digitally-oriented world, a sizzle reel becomes a company’s digital business card. Indigo is uniquely qualified to produce the best-in-class sizzle reels for companies looking to make that unforgettable first impression.
Great sizzle reels have many distinct characteristics:
• They tell a story: Fluidly weaving together products, images, videos, performances, and more
• They pack a punch: Keeping viewers transfixed and entertained, wanting to see more
• They’re well paced: Creatively blending together snippets of visual data
• They’re economical: Providing the right balance of content and efficiency. They’re short, sweet and to the point
• They’re relevant: Precisely targeting the desired audience. After all, pharma executives are different from fashion executives
• They’re emotional: With a point of view and a defined thematic tone (e.g. inspiring, adventurous, innovative, compassionate, humorous, creative, or traditional)
Indigo understands this medium, as our own work needs to be demonstrated and showcased effectively. As such, we have developed a very specialized and proven approach to creating sizzle reels for companies of all types.

• What’s the right tone for them?
• What does is the company selling?
