Case Studies

The A Bowl of Rice team has been part of several unique projects! Here is a selection of behind the scenes stories that detail how we solve production challenges!

UNICEF – Tikkun Olam Makers Vietnam

In June of 2016 our team was approached by UNICEF with a unique challenge: over the course of the three day Tikkun Olam Makers event, capture the emotion and actions of eight teams, racing against the clock, to build technology based inventions for children with disabilities. We needed to make one video for each team and then one separate video covering the entire event. Sounds simple enough, but there is one catch: the videos will all play at the end of the event gala on the evening of the third day. Nine videos in three days! Time to get to work! – Read More!


Our very first client to find us solely through our website, Inspectorio presented us with the opportunity to make something we hadn’t had the chance to do before. The Inspectorio team had developed an app that could potentially disrupt a multi-billion dollar industry but, in order to snag crucial investment, they needed our help to present their product and story through two, one-minute videos. – Read More!

ILA – Beyond English

In August of 2016, A Bowl of Rice got a call from Dentsu! They were working on a new campaign with one of our oldest and dearest clients, ILA, to launch their teaching services into the 21st century. With a short-form documentary, we had to convince parents that the classroom, as we knew it, was in need of a change. So, with access to industry experts, seasoned teachers, and some of the best students in Vietnam, we went to the drawing board! – Read More!
