We are currently in the process of designing and developing a new website, which will be live soon. In the meantime, here are a few projects we’ve recently worked on.
Checkmate created the ongoing New England Tech campaign to showcase successful graduates of the college. We flew out to Hollywood to document the story of New England Tech graduate Tommy DeNucci, a prominent filmmaker and director. We then flew to Seattle to tell the story of New England Tech graduate Elizabeth Bergeron, a successful video game designer working at one of the largest game design firms in the world.
The Pawtucket Red Sox hired Checkmate to write and produce a 60 second TV ad in support of their campaign to build a new stadium in Pawtucket. The ad ran on TV, Facebook and other digital mediums in the Rhode Island market.
Checkmate was hired as the media consultant for Citizens for Responsible Government, a coalition of Rhode Island labor unions and civil rights groups, to defeat a Constitutional Convention (Question 3 on the ballot.) Despite polls showing us losing by 40 points in the months leading up to the election, our campaign prevailed on election day, winning by more than 10 points. Here is a video we produced for the campaign showing why our Constitution shouldn’t be sold to the highest bidder.
