Yes, we made up this word. Itâ€™s a squish wordâ€”or squordâ€”that consists of â€śEpiphanyâ€ť and â€śVideo.â€ť
Epipheo started in 2009 when Jon Collins and a group of friends started creating videos that communicated why a product or service was important. People have called them â€śExplainer Videos,â€ť but we believe that communicating the human value of a thing is more effective in changing behavior than just describing how the thing works. Sometimes things need to be explained, but most of the time youâ€™re speaking to a human, and humans are smarter than we give them credit for.
Epipheo is more than just a video production house. It is a carefully curated collection of humans dedicated to translating ideas into valuable stories worth sharing.
Born in 2009, Epipheo has created a unique process of unlocking their clients' human value and communicating it clearly to humans. Epipheo's process first discovers a client's epiphany, then wraps that epiphany in a story, and then delivers that story in a delightful, easy-to-share video.
Epiphany + Video = Epipheo.
Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, right next to the magical chocolate river, Epipheoâ€™s cubicle-less, family-friendly office space promotes personal, human interaction among production, design, and sales.
An epiphany cannot be given. It can only be had. We believe that an epiphany, in the truest essence of the word, is more than just an a-ha moment. Itâ€™s a discovery of a truth that betters a personâ€™s life.
We make videos. Itâ€™s what we do.
The possibilities with video are enormous, and we love to push the boundaries of what is possible.
Making the video itself is actually the last step in our process, not the entire process. The video that the world sees is the product of discovery, development, and production.
A bullet list is only as powerful as the story it reminds you of.
We believe that every time information is shared, a story is being told. There are lots of ways to get your message out there, but if you want something to stick, you have to tell a story.
Every video that comes out of Epipheo is hand-crafted by human employees. On any given project, the creative team consists of Story Leads, Writers, Story Artists, Designers, Illustrators, Animators, Sound Designers, Voice Actors, and Composers. All of this is overseen and managed by a Producer and Client Services Consultant.
We embrace what we call â€śThe
