Zeh Arndt Creative is populated with serious sports fans and even a former collegiate athlete. So, it's as surprising as the Rice Owls not winning a National Championship that we've written over a thousand scripts, and co-directed multiple shoots for ESPN. 


NBA Countdown Tease - Cleveland vs Lakers | writing

The story of LeBron James is a never-ending tale of a man willing to fight for what is right for his family and community. And the latest chapter featured his return to Cleveland for the first time since moving to LA. Oh yeah, and Michael B. Jordan read our script.


Since Winter X Games 2000, the opens, teases, features and shows we've worked on have featured legends, stars and celebrities on camera or on the mic. In 2017, our scripts for the NFL Draft and Fantasy Football Marathon were nominated for Sports Emmys.

Visit Tampa Bay is the conventions and visitors bureau for the city of Tampa. In 2016, business pirate Kevin T. Greybeard was brought aboard to be their ambassador for meeting planners. Now, after a two-year hiatus sailing the seven seas (and working the conventions circuit), Greybeard is once again a star of the silver screen helping meeting planners invade Tampa once again.

Zeh Arndt Creative, was hired to create the latest films featuring Kevin T. Greybeard the Business Pirate. What began as a project to promote Tampa area hotels and dining expanded to include the business pirate’s campaign to become Tampa’s next mayor.

Zeh Arndt Creative wrote and produced the series, filming Greybeard in multiple locations throughout Tampa, including city hall where Mayor Bob Buckhorn made a guest appearance throwing his support behind the city’s first openly pirate candidate. 

The videos featuring prominent Tampa hotels and restaurants were the foundation for the 2019 campaign which includes social, digital, web and email executions, and even an official announcement at the Tampa mayoral summit.

According to Patrick Harrison, CMO at Visit Tampa Bay, “It was time for Greybeard to sail the convention seas and the team at Zeh Arndt Creative grasped the potential immediately. They crafted outstanding scripts and produced three video gems and multiple gifs and clips that take the Greybeard mission to a new level.”

The Visit Tampa Bay meetings team set a record of over 500,000 room nights in 2018, and this year is expected to exceed that number.

FILM DIRECTIOn, PHOTOGRAPHY & PRODUCTION•  EST. 2018 • agency - AQUA  

Economic development efforts are often comprised of stale elevator pitches, boring spreadsheets and brochures often found lining recycling bins. The smart folks at Aqua and West Palm Beach Economic Development wanted to take a different approach. They hired us in the spring of 2018 to direct and produce a video and photo shoot that would cut through the din of development speak. So, with a set of cool scripts in hand, we spent two fun-filled days filming their business-spokesman pitching viewers in various vignettes to move their business to West Palm Beach and "lower their taxes not their standards". We then spent two more days photographing real people throughout the city bringing that notion to life.

Optimum is led by one of the most influential couples in the game, Pri and Michelle Piantadosi-Lima. Google them. You'll see what we mean. Pri and Michelle came to us in 2013 with a big idea that needed a brand strategy, identity and initial marketing materials to get them started. The branding we created is now being worn by amateur and professional players from high-school exposure events to the coveted AVP Tour.

In the spring of 2011, an alarming rate of people in need of hospital care were driving out of town. While they assumed their central location was sufficient, studies showed patients were willing to drive an extra 20 minutes to other hospitals. In fact, patients would drive directly past St John’s life threatening situations. Focus groups further revealed that the community had lost trust in the hospital and would not return.

MS3 Communications hired Zeh Arndt Creative as a creative consultant that fall. Since then Zeh Arndt Creative has partnered with MS3 Communications to create annual TV campaigns for St. John's Riverside Hospital in Yonkers, New York to build community trust, raise awareness of services and staff, and increase the number of patients treated. Beneath the brand umbrella Community Strong™, our commercials and patient testimonials have helped generate a significant increase in patient volume year over year and successfully instill community trust.
