Ant Farm Media, Inc. took my commercial concept and made it better. At first, I thought I would need a pro-bear advocate to edit because the personal passion would help the edit. But Anthony’s editing skills with timing, subtle nuances and story telling turned out to be what I really need. I really like this first commercial. He executed my concept and made it better than I had imagined it in my mind. He is a very fast editor and is good for producers who like to sit in and direct during post production.
Rick Scott Bear Hunt Video
Ant Farm Media was approached by Lee Day, coordinator of Florida non-profit organization “It’s Rick Scott’s Hunt”, to create a 30-second commercial. The idea for the commercial was aimed to stop the yearly Florida bear hunt by targeting Rick Scott. Lee says, “Rick Scott could stop the bear hunt with the wave of his pen, but refuses to.”
Lee’s organization, “It’s Rick Scott’s Hunt”, is a multi-media bear advocate group running television ads across the state of Florida. Our ad was the first wave in the campaign’s effort to put an end to the brutal bear hunt.
When Lee came to Ant Farm, he already had the idea for the commercial in his mind. He wanted to show the majestic beauty of the creatures and feature them over the beautifully haunting and emotionally driven song, “Time to Say Goodbye”.
With Lee’s idea at the helm and Anthony’s skill level and experience on the computer, they created the captivating 30-second commercial you see above, that calls the viewer to take action and call Senator Rick Scott.
The commercial has since made state wide and national headlines, bringing more attention to the bear hunt and hopefully closer to the end of this bloody tradition.

Lee Day’s Full Review:
Great political TV ad company!
I am producing televisions ads in Florida to stop the highly controversial black bear hunt of 2016. I hired Anthony of Ant Farm Media to edit my first commercial. I needed an editor who was technically strong with video codecs and formats to upload my commercial to any broadcast television station or cable network. The upload instructions for each station vary significantly, but Ant Farm Media has been able to convert my commercial to every specification needed and upload the commercial to every TV station I am working across the state of Florida.
Anthony took my commercial concept and made it better. At first, I thought I would need a pro-bear advocate to edit because the personal passion would help the edit. But Anthony’s editing skills with timing, subtle nuances and story telling turned out to be what I really need. I really like this first commercial. He executed my concept and made it better than I had imagined it in my mind. He is a very fast editor and is good for producers who like to sit in and direct during post production.
Ant Farm Media has given me more than my money’s worth. Our first commercial has received a great deal of press–about the commercial itself.
Ant Farm Media has been available by phone and messaging whenever I need them–even late at night. I plan to have Anthony edit my future commercials currently in pre-production. Currently I have hired him to do some Photoshop work our bear advocate group’s website. Anthony has a wide set of skills. He is quite literally my one-stop shop for nearly all post production needs. Thanks, Anthony for the fair production rates and working with me on all the editing tweaks I put you through.
It’s election year. If you need a political TV ad, call Ant Farm Media.
