Cinematically Capturing a science fiction reality

A new genre of product promotion for the big screen.
As unique as the diversification of cellular scientific innovations offered up by the renowned California based research and development company Elysian Biologics, there’s no question now of their intentions to proudly exercise this same boundary defying business model when it comes to how their company is aesthetically perceived on a brand and marketing platform.

With 2020 marking the launch date for Elysian Biologic’s new lineup of NK therapies, pure MSC stem cell products and for the highly anticipated Exo® Exosome (umbilical cord derived) products for anti-aging, pain management and athletic injury treatment, it was only naturally instinctive that their 'beyond science fiction reality' medicinal offerings be paired equivalently with a cinematic storytelling experience cut from the same cloth. The conception of the short film commercial 'Awakening' was the company’s opportunity to finally communicate at this same future-forward-frequency and allow a wider audience to truly understand the implications of their new product-line’s healing potentials.

CREATIVE DOORWAY reinvents ITSELF for a new Scientific innovation.

Husband and wife creatives and visionary partners, James and Misty Buzzacco, explore a new production twist to an old form of storytelling.
The Buzzacco marketing 'power couple' is back at it again with their latest cinematic brand story advertising campaign, Exo®. The owners and creative pioneers of the Los Angeles cinematic marketing boutique Creative Doorway, were commissioned early in 2017 by the highly reputable cellular manufacturing company Elysian Biologics, to build the marketing entrance into the first of a multitude of new stem cell offerings to launch in 2020. The creative duo have established a strong professional reputation in the regenerative medicine industry from their unorthodox brand 'creative direction' within the scope of their current portfolio; one that critics have not hesitated to glorify because of its potential to revitalize a traditionally sterile medicinal industry.

“Our art direction always feels like we start with saturated brush strokes that overflow with the cinematic framework inspirations of the science fiction reality of tomorrow”, director James Buzzacco describes. “And as we set out to artistically approach the visionary cocktail that blends both the realistic nature of the current scientific advancements with the more embellished 'sci-fi' branding ingredients used to create a sense of wonder for the potential buyers of the products, there is a certain responsibility we must uphold. This hybrid that we must become, between filmmaker and marketing professional, walks a very thin line in terms of sustaining an advertising integrity, and the short film commercial 'Awakening' and its overall brand for the Exo® Exosomes product is the artistic end result."

A ‘Creative Doorway’ into Scientific Innovation

If we look within our deepest desires at the growing potential catalysts for change, it’s possible to speculate how our aforementioned ‘dystopian life’ could give way to something closer to a utopia. This is never more true than in the realm of healthcare. Though the dangers and abuses mentioned above are very real and have a strong impact on our daily lives, opportunity for transformation is afoot. So while access to effective care and many traditional medical practices are rightfully under attack, a brave cadre of scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals are forging a new path. And surprisingly, accompanying this courageous pursuit are the likes of husband and wife storytellers, Misty and James Buzzacco, owners of the Los Angeles based cinematic branding and production boutique, Creative Doorway - of whom both confidently proclaim, that a safe and successful passage into this new frontier starts at the nexus where “science fiction meets reality.”

Building a Creative Wonder on a Business Battlefield

As James Buzzacco, who – along with his wife Misty – founders of Creative Doorway (a Los Angeles-based cinematic branding boutique specializing in innovative and multi-dimensional storytelling) explains, “It’s important to understand how certain business management and workflow aspects in the industry are capable of becoming legitimate obstructions to the entire creative process. However, we must never forget that this same antagonist is often essential to a protagonist’s journey; if one simply recognizes the importance of their dynamic together. In much the same way, by overcoming the grueling obstacles and absorbing these new demands for a wider range of expertise, a creative project and the minds behind it can reach new heights never initially imagined. This is a massive wake up call,” admits James. “But, somehow the child inside of us continues to remain full of hope, still reaching for the stars, and would confidently do anything to reach these new levels of resourcefulness. Luckily, for our dream’s sake...
