University of Georgia


The University of Georgia has kind of a lot going for it. It's a top-tier comprehensive research University with impressive academic programs, storied history, and championship athletics, all within the vibrant college town of Athens. We were tasked by UGA's Student Orientation department to create a video that captures these qualities, giving incoming new students a taste of the many things in store for them at UGA. The voice-over copy leads students through the video, which highlights some of the programs and possibilities waiting for new students excited to begin their journey at Georgia. From the digital fireworks that students see when they're first accepted, to the lone trumpeteer playing the Battle Hymn in front of a silent packed stadium, to ringing the chapel bell when there's good news, we wanted to capture the unique traditions that make UGA such a special place to be.

We also had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful campus and surrounding areas in Athens for the University Admissions department. We loved everything about this lifestyle photoshoot; from the historic buildings, to downtown, to the inspiring students and faculty, there was plenty to showcase! These photographs will be used for the Admissions website and collateral pieces. Below are a few samples of what we captured.



Working with Beach Lion has been a no-brainer for our office. Mike, Laura, and their team come to the table with a fresh perspective that is not only creative and beautiful, but also does an incredible job of telling the story and ultimately capturing our brand. I have been impressed with their professionalism throughout the process – from the initial creative story-boarding and conversations about our desired outcome, to the day-of photo and video shoots, and the final cutting and post-production, they’ve been available, easy to talk to, and great partners.
