SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (May 12, 2016) – Hoff Productions, the leading end-to-end reality production company and one of America’s premier creators of factual programming announces the release of their new branded video “We Are Breitling: The Anthem.” Created for multiple global platforms, the 2:30 brand integrated video features seven celebrated aviation adventurers including Space Shuttle Commander Mark Kelly, Fighter Pilot Dan Hampton, Wingsuit Pilot Jeb Corliss, Bush Pilot Paul Claus, Champion Aerobatic Aviator Michael Goulian, Red Bull Air Race Pilot Hannes Arch, and World Champion Aerobatic Pilot Aude Lemordant.

Shot in six locations including Sutton, Alaska and Avignon, France, and conceived by Executive Producer Michael Hoff and Breitling’s Global Marketing Director Ben Balmer, the video visually ties the values of the world’s greatest aviators and the world’s greatest watch manufacturer. “We have worked together previously with Hoff on two documentary projects, Super Factories: Breitling and The Aviator’s Watch,” said Breitling’s Ben Balmer. “We knew Hoff completely understood our brand. We knew they could deliver the powerful story-telling we were looking for. However, this really pushed boundaries. It was a risk, but Hoff delivered a masterpiece.”

The project exemplifies Hoff Productions’ expansion of services into content marketing and production for the domestic and international marketplace. It kicks off a new commitment to meeting the increasing production needs for companies seeking to be more in control of their own brand messaging. It is a natural outgrowth of Hoff’s long form storytelling, and experience with entertainment programming producing compelling series like National Geographic’s Ultimate Factories, Travel Channel’s Made in America, PBS’s Raw to Ready, and featuring iconic brands like Coke, IKEA, UPS, Lamborghini and Harley.

This expansion firmly places Hoff Productions at the center of meeting one of its fastest growing client demands–delivering high quality branded storytelling that aligns their messaging goals at every state of the consumer engagement cycle.

“With so many global brands like Breitling becoming content producers themselves, expanding our services with this new division dedicated to creating unique, forward thinking, easily consumable messages that highlight brand values is a natural extension of our production services,” explains Hoff.
