And Video Scripts




Colleges & Universities: "Rutgers Library System"

Running Time: 4:00 min

Color/Sound/Live Action

Institutions for higher education are competing for the brightest and the best.  More than once, Rutgers has called on TimeSteps to create appealing videos that resonate the school's spirit and sense of purpose.


Grounded in traditions as old as the University itself, the Rutgers Library System is constantly evolving as a digital media network, serving students, faculty, and the community at large.


The challenge was to capture the relevance of the libraries, preserving  the balance between these older services and the new technologies that make the library system so vital today.

Education: "Auto Red"

Running Time: 2:51


Our client challenged us with communicating a fairly complex message about a new technology WITHOUT

voice-over narration. 


So using only text, music and pictures, we created a charming animation which explains Automated Red Blood Cell Donation, a technology that allows blood donors to give twice as many units of red blood cells as traditional methods.

History/Milestones: 'Exxon Opportunity and Advantage"

Running Time: 20:00 min

Color/Sound/Live Action Documentary

TimeSteps wrote and produced this long-format history of Exxon's Research and Engineering Division in the Ken Burns tradition for the energy company's 75th Anniversary.


The challenge was to distill their long, rich history into an entertaining and educational documentary-style program.  A classic in oil and gas museums these many years later.

History: "50th Anniversary of NYBC"

Running Time: 2:44 min

Color / Sound / Live Action /Graphics


Since TimeSteps was founded, we have had a focus on historical retrospectives and milestone celebrations for our clients. From longer, Ken Burns-style documentaries to shorter timecapsule treatments, we have been called on for our expertise in archival footage and imaginative treatments.


In this 50th Anniversary video, produced for a fundraising Gala at the Waldorf Hotel, New York Blood Center is featured as one of the largest community-based blood, cellular therapy, and transfusion medicine research centers in the world.  


Our challenge?  To show "science in the service of humanity."
