The Pioneer Studios Journey

Back in 2007, we started a production company called Pioneer Studios to tell stories about wildlands and the people who fight to protect them.  

The idea felt like a longshot, but now, thirteen years later, we can’t believe where the journey has taken us.  Diving in Indonesia, kayaking through Alaska, and trekking across the jungles of Panama has been a dream come true.

But as a conservationist, there’s more to success than creating an engaging video.

We want clients to mobilize audiences, provoke behavior change, and inspire corporate responsibility with our films.

In fact, this has to happen if we want to save our planet’s wild places. Sadly, it’s a lot easier said than done.

To do that you need great audience insights, compelling content, and strategic distribution.

The world has changed since we started Pioneer Studios.  The internet is now the dominant distribution channel for content on earth.  Billions of users consume trillions of articles, posts, images, and videos daily.  Audiences are fragmented on more than a dozen social channels, read different news, follow diverse influencers, and constantly communicate in new and unique ways.

Breaking through all the noise online is a real challenge, but it also offers an incredible opportunity.

We’ve never been able to understand audiences like we do today.  Social data analytics and behavior change research have opened up a new window into humankind.  Marketing experts spend billions every year to better understand and market products to consumers.  To save the planet, we must reach audiences where they are and with relatable messaging.  Otherwise, we won’t be heard.

Today, production companies need to do more than just make films to ensure clients get results.  We need audience data and strategic distribution to break through the noise and be heard.

This is why we created Wild Agency.

Wild Agency is a video-focused creative firm that specializes in helping conservationists gain the attention they deserve.

With our new approach, we aim to drive to the heart of important conservation issues affecting the planet. By implementing a new system that blends consumer data and content strategy, we’re better positioned to assist clients and tell their stories on a wider scale.

We’ve retooled our approach, brought in digital marketing experts in social data, trained up on digital distribution, and are ready to share this knowledge with the conservation community to help them get results.

Staying True to Ourselves

Wild Agency is staying true to the values of Pioneer Studios:  Small, Agile, and always pushing for better results.

Despite all these new changes, Wild Agency’s commitment to conservation efforts is stronger than ever.  We aspire to create the best content online, as well as push ourselves to reach new audiences. More importantly, we aim to push the envelope far enough to get information out to the masses—this belief was true in the past and continues to represent who we are as a partner and advocate for genuine influence.

No matter how big or small the organization or cause, each project is meaningful and deserves the best support from a team that cares. Remember, your mission is to serve the planet, and our mission is to help you share that message with the world.
