Since its founding in 2006, Embee Studio has adapted and evolved with the changing media landscape. In the early days of Embee, the primary focus was high-end DVD and Blu Ray authoring. During the first several years, Embee Studio created hundreds of DVD titles; everything from educational DVD and niche independent films to Oscar nominated works. Even though DVDs and Blu Rays are not the sole distribution mediums for most content owners, Embee Studio still provides those services and is among the top authoring facilities in the country with experience and technical expertise that is second to none.
Today Embee Studio primarily focuses on content creation services â€“ video production, graphic design, illustration and interactive media. Mike and Beth Bell, the founders of Embee are able to take on virtually any media-based project with Mikeâ€™s technical skills and Bethâ€™s illustration and design talent. In 2014, they were awarded the highest honor from the Telly Awards, a silver Telly, for their kickstarter video created for Cable Car Cinema in Providence. Telly awards are sought-after by industry leaders and recognize the finest film and video productions in the country.
As a husband-and-wife team, Mike and Beth work together through all stages of projects that require both technical and art-related know-how. In Mike and Bethâ€™s work environment, they bounce ideas off one another constantly, leading to more creative and inventive end products. Together they achieve a perfect union of art and technology.
MIKE AND BETH BELL
Mike, The Tech Guy:
Mike Bell has been working in the media industry since the late 1990s. While pursuing his dream of being a professional skateboarder, he still found time to pursue his second passion â€“ filmmaking. Using skateboarding as his subject, Mike created many promotional videos for aspiring skaters and skateboarding brands through the 90s. In 1998 he produced â€śMessinâ€™ Aroundâ€ť a critically acclaimed skateboarding film featuring the some of the best athletes of the day.
After skateboarding, he went on to work in the New England film and media production industry and ran one of the largest production facilities in the Boston area for almost 10 years. During these years, Mike devoted himself to learning as much as he could about media production and has since used those skills to create his own business. He continues to explore all types of media in the constantly evolving technological landscape.
Beth, The Artist:
Beth Braganca Bell studied illustration at Mass Art and works as the Art Director at Embee Studio. While she collaborates with her husband Mike on many projects, creating motion graphics and illustrations, Â she also does her own design work. The style of Bethâ€™s art focuses mainly on organic subject matter and is mostly black and white. She loves playing with repetitive shapes and is fascinated by manipulating lines to createÂ images often inspired by flora and fauna.
After graduating from Mass Art and before founding Embee, Beth freelanced on many different art projects, designing images for logos, business cards, invitations and other collateral. Following the birth of their twin daughters in 2006, Beth began to work more closely with Mike to bring her artistic eye to his multimedia projects.Â Today Beth has begun to further develop her personal brand and now sells her artwork on Etsy.
