What is Beach Monster?
+Beach Monster is a Digital Transcendence Laboratory, deftly blending modern technologies with ancient technologies. We harness classical filmmaking tools, high technology, and develop innovative ideas to create products and services that were never before offered (with a straight face, at least).
+From the moment of stepping into a Beach Monster project, target audiences are engulfed in an alternate mode of existence. The end user is led to become involved in pre-existing context and stories. The modern day virtual reality.
We work on our own speculative projects, and often take client work as well.
+We love offering meaningful and and psychologically ethical films, products, campaigns, and even business or personal consultation:
We don’t believe in lazy thinking for our teammates or our end customers. We promote undiluted efforts toward progress in human knowledge.
+Support the arts:
Any money spent with us is then directly invested back into additional projects: art is life.
+Know that you aren’t following the pack:
We make our own decisions based on multiple sources of information. We spend many sleepless nights avoiding lazy research.
Some Questions + Answers
about our process….
Tell me about your process?
Our process is a very unique experience. Some parts are
very collaborative, and some parts are very internal. The
collaborative parts let us play, and be creative in a fun,
childlike way. For the internal part of the process, we push
through our own psychological boundaries in order to see the
obscured psychological bearings that society has on people,
surrounding particular topics and stigmas. It’s actually hard
So are you an ad agency or a production company?
We are not an ad agency or a production company. We do not
wear suits, and we do not wine and dine people.
We are an artist laboratory, and we take that seriously.
Understanding and enjoying the psychology of your customer
is our artform. Having fun with that is our priority.
What can you do for my business?
You never know what you’re going to get with us – because
we hate cookie cutter work. We do our very best to research
your target market and your industry (and you) in order
to satisfy both your requirements and our creative taste.
How do I know I’ll be happy with the results?
Your success is our success. If we make you happy, and make
you money, you’ll probably refer us to someone else. If there
is ever a debate, just remember that we share the same goal.
So what format do you work with?
An ad agency might help design your billboards, your radio
commercials, or your banner ads. That’s great! They’ll do a
fine job! But we don’t do that. We choose what format
would be interesting to see INSTEAD of the traditional stuff.
How do I know what I need?
Many people come to us saying “I need videos for my business!”
or even “I need a video in two weeks in order to be ready for our
launch!”. Yes, we can do this. But do you order from a restaurant
before looking at the menu? Do you tell the chef which ingredients
to use? For best results, we really recommend a discovery period,
in which we thoroughly research the options and play with creative
ideas on how to present your business to the world. Why rush things
if you’ll have a better product by taking the proper amount of time?
So how long is the discovery phase, and how do I know what I’ll get?
The discovery phase is purely consulting. We’ll certainly have
ideas and recommendations at the end of it, but there will unlikely
be any customer ready deliverables. Because we understand that this
is not the most comfortable scenario in beginning a business relationship,
we offer a reduced rate for the discovery phase.
What does replaceability mean?
This means that we reserve the right to hire subcontractors to help
us answer hard questions, or to do tricky tricks with their specialized
skillsets. We have an amazing network of talented people, and would
be embarrassed to not get their input in areas of their expertise.This
is definitely a good thing for you! If you have anyone that you’d like
us to consider in that process, let us know! We love meeting new people.
What is transmedia, exactly?
We are a Digital Transcendence Laboratory. We create narratives
that span mediums such as TV, internet, fortune cookies, and performance. If you want
some examples of a few famous Transmedia campaigns (without the video-
centric Beach Monster signature), you can go to
So what Transmedia stuff can you do for me? And what will it cost?
The discovery phase may give us some great Transmedia concepts
for your business. Budget concerns should be discussed in advance, so
we can know where to limit our scope. This is of course a very loosely
described offering, but that’s exactly what makes it exciting: it’s always
