  2. This mini-doc shares the story of Władysław Tomczyk, a gentleman we unexpectedly met in Katowice, Poland after wrapping a month-long commercial project throughout Europe. His hopeful message of creating life-work by honing one's natural ability is one we value to the core at Variable. What began as an insightful conversation, motivated us to extend our trip by 3 days so we could capture this inspiring man's life.

    With no pre-developed story or shot-list, we let our curiosity & conversations with Wladyslaw guide the film. As a result, his outlook on life furthered our belief that contentment through self-acceptance trumps societal approval.

    Free your mind.

    “Welcome To Doha,” takes us on a spectacular journey through the remarkable city of Doha, Qatar. Located on the coast of the Arabian Gulf, Doha entices our curiosity and excites the imagination. We behold some of the most magnificent architectonics in the world, while by contrast peer into an infinite desert terrain and a thriving Middle Eastern nation.
    With the ever-growing cityscape, Doha continues to be one of the most unique settings to experience. “Welcome To Doha,” illustrates the persistent blooming of this marvelous metropolis, the evolution of it’s history from the old and new world, and the quintessence of the countries culture; all of this captured through the art form of Timelapse photography.

    Special thanks to Dynamic Perception and Emotimo for their continued support!

  5. In March of 2013, Variable was commissioned by Edelman to produce a series of mini-documentary films along with the print advertisements for Pfizer's cause-driven campaign; "Get Old". The purpose of the campaign is to spread positive awareness on aging by showcasing stories that break the mold of the negative pre-conceived notions surrounding the topic. As a team of ambitious young creatives, we thoroughly grasp these negative connotations so we were thrilled to put our energy into a campaign message that we truly believe in.

    The second "Get Old" film features one of the most energetic and inspiring women we have ever met. Anita's film was the last of four films we shot, so needless to say, everyone was a bit exhausted from all the traveling and tightly-knit production schedule. However, Anita's drive and energy rubbed off on the whole team, further enabling us to seamlessly push through the shoot days. Anita's personality was so pure and magnetic, it was hard for us to not want to find out how, or why she was so full of life. Looking back on the production process now, we're almost thinking that we should consider hiring Anita after she retires as our "Production Motivator"...Hmmm...
