Seedwell

Based in SF, Seedwell is one of the best built-for-viral, grassroots production companies I’ve met.  

If you’re a marketer looking to produce a built-for-sharing brand video that taps into the zeitgeist of YouTube / internet geek culture, but willing to give a bit on production-value and let them run with your brand, these are your guys.

Not only have they produced some amazing brand-inspired viral YouTube sensations, they’ve just premiered their first feature film Salaam Dunk.  Really inspiring stuff.

The founders — Peter Furia, David Fine, and Beau Lewis — are incredibly smart, humble guys who just “get it.”
