About Explore Media

EXPLORE is an award-winning commercial production company focused on one core idea: every project deserves our very best. We collaborate directly with agencies and brands to produce commercials and content. We’ve been producing with this simple idea as our foundation since opening our doors in 2003

What makes us different

We collaborate directly with agencies and brands to produce commercials and content which makes viewers feel. Motivated to react, stimulated to buy, interested to click, impressed to tell others, inspired to respond. 

We’ve been producing with this simple idea as our foundation since opening our doors in 2003. Over the years, EXPLORE has stayed boutique enough to focus on our clients first, but big enough to offer them the creative talent and sales reach of a multi-coast powerhouse. And this unstoppable combo has resulted in over 70 industry awards along the way.

The creative landscape today is about more than just harnassed ideas and one-time collaborations.  Our focus is making sure our clients are using their resources and multiple streams to make sure the work we produce has maximum impact. We do just that with curated, world-class talent, a rock star producing team, and the expertise to make everything count. Every project is unique, and that’s exactly how we like it.

There’s a place somewhere beyond the typical production — come join us there.

Overall Experience

to visual storytelling and even broadcast commercials. We have tapped Explore Media several times for commercial creation, but one of our favorite collaborations was an incredible bonus. The Explore Media team was working with one of our influencer families, telling the story of how their RV enhances their family life and adventure. The piece, shot in gorgeous Acadia National Park, was so inspiring, we had the team turn it into a broadcast television spot. Explore is a go to for our storytelling. Their work is always a great value because their quality is evident and they listen to the goals and dreams of the client. As a brand, we frequently work with families and children. We have heard from so many of our clients that the Explore Media team goes out of the way to be friendly to everyone, but especially the youngest talent. Explore Media goes above and beyond to capture the true spirit and personalities of even the smallest kids. We will continue working with the Explore Media team because they have taken the time to really study and learn our messaging and brand. Each finished project exceeds our expectations both in storytelling and visuals. I would recommend them to any other brand looking to get broadcast quality, professional work, without taking a major hit to the budget.
