Recently we completed a year-long project with one of Waterbury's most iconic restaurants - Arvads. We were brought on board to help with a re-branding effort for the local eatery to coincide with their 25th anniversary of being in business.

Beautifully filmed, with solid acting, and a compelling plot line, this is one worth saving for later if you can’t watch it now. Read More >>
