Political Campaign Content

I take pride in our right to vote and feel it is also my duty to help support candidates that I believe in.  And there are no positions that effect your day-to-day life more than those at the state and municipal level..

My specialty is creating positive and inspiring campaign content, because America is tired of negative smear politics.  I focus on the people and the issues, not the opponent, because I believe people should vote FOR something, not against it!

In this age of digital media, even local campaigns deserve presidential treatment!  My expertise in creating quality content and impactful social media strategies has resulted in unprecedented engagement for state and municipal campaigns.

"Meet David Lawson" was released just over two months prior to the election to introduce the candidate to the voters.  We filmed in every town of the very large district in order to make a personal connection with all viewers while highlighting key issues and themes of the campaign.

Elect Pete Bass (2017)
(R - Mayor, New Milford CT)

Pete Bass challenged the incumbant mayor of New Milford, CT in 2017 and won his race.   

Myke Foo Media created two campaign videos where tasks included writing, pre-production (budgeting, scheduling, permits, releases, etc.), shooting, editing, video graphics and distribution.

"I'm Voting for Pete Bass" was released five days before the election to encourage citizens to get out and vote.  The project featured several supporers telling others why they are voting for Pete, including prominant townspeople from both sides of the aisle.

"Pete Bass for Mayor" was released to announce his candidacy.  The entire video was shot, edited and published within 48-hours because the campaign wanted to make a splash and turn around the video immediately after his initial press announcement.

Pat Del Monaco & Khris Hall  (2017)
(D - First Selectman & Selectman, New Fairfield, CT)

Del Monaco / Hall challenged the incumbant first selectman of New Fairfield, CT in 2017.  They won their race by a huge margin (over 60% of the vote).

Myke Foo Media created a six-video campaign where tasks included devising the campaigns' entire video social media and distribution calendar, in addition to creating the videos end-to-end.  Videos were shot over the span of two days and released strategically taking issues, timing and race momentum into consideration.

"Meet Pat & Khris" was released early in the election cycle to announce the team's candidacy while giving voters insight into who the ladies are and why they should earn their vote.

"The Issues" were the remaining five videos released per a schedule created to optimize views and engagement.  Each video was short and to the point, focusing on specific issues and how the candidates planned to address them.

Bill Buckbee (2016)
(R - State Representative, New Milford CT)

"Let Buckbee Do It" 

 

For his first campaign run, Bill was a candidate in need of introduction to the voters, and his commercial reflected that.  We presented Bill in a friendly, neighborly fashion, presented who he is and what he brings to the table.  The content was produced to reflect the everyman aesthetic, done in a qualityh that appeared professional yet was still personal, because that's how Bill is.  Having never run for political office, Buckbee won his race by an enormous margin, winning close to 65% of the vote.  

Myke Foo Media was a one-stop shop for the campaign, as they created a robust website and social media presence that was highlighted by a campaign video and portrait photography.  Myke Foo Media also designed the graphic package and campaign logo used on all signs, pamphlets and other campaign material.  The campaign's video was shot, edited and published over the span of 48-hours, designed to make a splash very early in the election cycle.
