In 1992, Ron Yoshida started Hello World Communications renting 15 Motorola walkie-talkies.
Over the years, popular audio, video, lighting, communications and virtual reality rental departments were added.
Starting in 2000, Hello World Communications began producing videos for numerous clients including CBS Digital, Saatchi & Saatchi, AIGA, The National Yiddish Theater, Writer’s Guild of America, MSN, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, Johnson & Johnson, AICP, CSE Group, The Friars Club, BBDO, GMC, AT&T etc.
A Microsoft video we shot and directed called “Sweet Revenge” set a record for most msn.com hits.
Recently we produced twelve concert videos for The Warner Music Group and Carnegie Hall. Especially enjoyable was an AT&T behind the scenes look at the making of a music video for the hard of hearing. The song was “Different Colors” by WALK THE MOON.
Hello World produced 12 Virtual Reality projects for IBM that received over 900,000 hits and collaborated on several VR projects for Harvard University.
On May 22nd a United Nations VR video we produced called Home debuted at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
