SmartCuts Geneva

Welcome to our office in downtown Geneva

SmartCuts Creative Geneva is located in the heart of the Paquis district, a very multicultural area which reflects the city’s consummately international character. Many of our clients are based at this end of the lake, including the United Nations, CERN and the ICRC. Below you will find numerous case studies of work we have done in and around Geneva.

We shoot lots of video in Geneva; we cover events and provide many content and creative services to numerous companies and organizations based here. If you are located in Geneva, or have a production to run in the city, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’ll be happy to help. We have monther-tongue English-speaking producers and crews.

Social media video ads for Facebook, Geneva

You might be surprised to hear that Facebook has a Geneva team. We were, when they called for help editing Nestlé video ads. They sent a producer over to our studio and we worked on adapting ads for the social media platform. The idea was to help Nestlé get more mileage out of its videos, by adapting them specifically to Facebook specs.

This meant turning 16:9 aspect ratio into 9:16 and adding on-screen text because many people do not listen to the audio when watching videos on social media. The experience was fun and very useful for us, as we picked up a number of important tips and tricks from the Facebook team.

Digital Marketing Campaign for the US Mission to the UN in Geneva

The US Mission to the United Nations in Geneva is a faithful client of ours. When they need help with creative communications, they call. It was the case for Doreen Bogdan-Martin’s campaign to win the top job at the International Telecommunications Union, ITU. We did her campaign video and her whole print and digital marketing campaign, including social media, brochures, CV, business cards, Powerpoint presentation and more.

To the full case study.

Video & Animation for WHO in Geneva

The World Health Organization, based in Geneva, is a regular client of SmartCuts’. We have done many productions for this UN agency, ranging from animated explainers and interviews to social media video. The challenge is often to condense a lot of information into as short a piece as possible, without hampering the key message nor the appeal.

Animation for ICRC, Geneva

The International Committee of the Red Cross, based near the United Nations in Geneva, has ordered animation from us, notably to cover violence against healthcare workers, as well as an animated explainer to show how ICRC carries out prison visits to make sure detainees are treated within the boundaries of international law. It’s always a pleasure to work on videos revolving around such themes.

Video Training and Production for IUG in Geneva

Every year we cover the graduation ceremony for the International University in Geneva and create a highlights video for their website and social media. The event often takes place at a palace hotel by the lake. Apart from the challenge of flying a drone in such areas, we always enjoy being in a scenic spot to gather great footage. SmartCuts also provides video training, as well as media training, at IUG, where students and alumni are very keen to learn how to shoot their own interviews and company films.

Hiring crew abroad for an important shoot is always a challenge. We sought out a Swiss team we could trust that could deliver for our Chicago-based firm. Out of 3 companies, SmartCuts was the one we chose and we were not disappointed. Exceptional people who provided both excellent service and great footage. Highly recommended!

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend the work of Jean Chessex, Lucas Chambers and the whole Smart Cuts team.I have had the fortune to work and interact with them upon numerous occasions, but in this particular case I refer to their amazing work with our rock band, The Flocking Murmuration.With Jean leading the production, we produced two excellent music videos for our songs Small Enough and Brave . These were two very different productions, each approached in a sensitive, artistic way, tailormade to the song and circumstances.“Brave” combined live footage with existing footage donated to us from the charity World Wide Tribe - not an easy task to combine in a smooth way. The resulting blended edit was a phenomenal work of editing and production which not only suited the song and our objectives, but was a musical work in itself, moving in pace with the song as it progressed: a highly emotional experience for the audience. I have seen many music videos which forget about the music itself, but this was a complete success.The same can be said of the music video for “Small Enough”, which was a whole other level of production: we went from concept to final product, with Jean, Kris, Marc and the Smart Cuts team making us feel involved, consulted all the way, which effortlessly writing, filming (with actors), editing and producing a highly professional and artistic music video.We could not have hoped for more.Aside from being true professionals and artists, Smart Cuts have also always been kind, sensitive and understanding to us as collaborators, managing that very hard combination: real humanity with utmost professionalism.I would like to thank them on behalf of the whole band, and as the songwriter I could not be happier with the audio-visual manifestation of my artistic intent, managed by Smart Cuts.If you are considering working with Smart Cuts to produce your music video, don’t hesitate.Whatever your needs, whatever their style, they will work tirelessly to the end to go above and beyond to produce exactly what you are hoping for - and more!Daniel M.

On behalf of UNCTAD I contacted SmartCuts to support live stream session a bit last minute through Zoom. We were well pleased with the professional service and advice we got on such short notice. Lucas and Louise are extremely professional, quick in communication, and polite. Two thumbs up!

Lucas and his team did incredible work with a short turnaround. They stepped up in a moment of ‘crisis’ when my organisation needed immediate support, and did so in the best possible way. We were all really happy with their professionalism and the quality of their work. We hope with work with SmartCuts again in the future.

Our organization often works with SmartCuts. We regularly ask them to do video editing, subtitling and other related post-production services. They are quick, responsive and on the ball. The final product always exceeds expectations. I highly recommend this agency.

As COO of CNNMoney Switzerland, I worked regularly with Smart Cuts over the past year. The video production ranged from studio shoots to branded content, including outside shoots. I highly recommend this agency: Lucas and his team are competent, professional, bilingual French and English, and very easy to work with!
