For over twenty years AOS has worked with some of world’s largest brands to meet their marketing objectives. Our management team has formed lasting relationships with brands and businesses in finance, energy, manufacturing, tourism, logistics, goverment and NGO sectors. As a result we have become an important extension of the marketing and corporate communications departments of the organisations we work with. These include Scotiabank, BP, Methanex, Atlantic, Mitsubishi, Nestle and for institutions such as the International School of Port of Spain, Maple Leaf International School and various state enterprises under the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. Strategy is borne out of a deep consideration of our clients’ communications objectives. Our scope of work is co-developed by the whole team under the direction of the company’s Managing Director, Miranda O’Connor who holds a Masters in Business Administration from The Edinburgh Business School.
AOS has evolved over the years to meet the needs of our largest clients. We are flexible, taking on the role of technologists to create solutions in response to industry trends. We have scaled to help social activists become political parties and again when they became governments. We have made a reputation for ourselves and our clients by committing to the principles of transmedia storytelling. By focusing on the narratives and amplifying what resonates, we have driven brand equity sky-high.
AOS was born in the Caribbean and is now incorporated in Ontario, Canada. We serve discerning international clients with a highly personalized service. Our new mobile app, AOS Content Cloud heralds a new era of collaboration as brands worldwide have our brand storytelling tools at their fingertips. Click here to contact us.
We regularly scale to accommodate our clients’ growth
AOS has a reputation throughout the Americas as a leader in brand storytelling. To date we have produced and distributed thousands of hours of broadcast quality visual content. Our relationship with brands such as Red Bull and ESPN have provided continuous learning opportunities. We focus on the narratives behind every brand and craft stories designed to hold the attention of audiences and transform relationships. Emotional hooks and cinematic visuals. Original yet formulaic. We strive for maximum impact and maximum reach.
Some projects inevitably become full features. Have a look at the trailer for some of our longer format productions – AOS Films.

Video & Photography
AOS is home to one of the most prolific production studios in the Caribbean region. Key multimedia projects include coverage of the 5th Summit of the Americas and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting as well as numerous high profile fashion events and national milestones such as an Olympic documentary and FIFA World Cup events in Bahrain and Germany.
The studio features a 16ft cyclorama, 4K capture, underwater equipment and multiple editing suites. The facility is conveniently housed in a wing of the Normadie Hotel, close to the capital city of Trinidad & Tobago, the Caribbean’s financial and enery hub. To date, twelve young creatives have been trained by the studio’s Creative Director, James O’Connor who now bounces between Trinidad and Ontario, Canada with a focus on international growth.
Because we are content-centric, digital video constitutes more than 50% of our workload. Be sure to check out our Vimeo channel for a comprehensive view of our video production work. Click here to contact us.

Responsibility & Sustainability
We tell the stories that matter. In fact more than half of the projects we have worked on focus on public awareness, social responsibility or edutainment in one way or another. We have worked with Atlantic, the natural gas company to promote the conservation of critically endangered sea turtles. We have spent countless hours supporting Scotiabank Foundation with their Women Against Cancer 5K Run, regular beach clean ups and tree planting efforts. We extremely proud of our full length documentaries that highlight the positive movements in society – especially our latest film “to be a Renegade” which was commissioned by BP to focus on the youth steel orchestra in one of the most violent parts of the world.
Not only do we have a wealth of experience working with foundations and NGOs, our Directors have formal qualifications in Sociology, Environmental Management, Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability.

Distribution & Analytics
Rich content goes further. That is why AOS has more distribution partners in more countries than the average digital agency. Apart from sponsored media platforms like Brandzooka and Google Adwords, we have built relationships with independant film distributors in North America and Europe. As a result, you can find AOS productions on Amazon Prime, Outdoor TV, Garage Entertainment… all with brand integrations. In fact, many of our branded productions have won festival awards.
Our approach to analytics is incredibly transparent. Wherever possible, we encourage clients to login to social media and distributor portals to access reports directly.
Because our agency is unabashedly content-driven, social media success comes naturally to our clients. Our media schedules are easy to understand and we manage social accounts using proven best practise strategies. Affordable, flexible account management options make us a preffered choice for many brands. Click here to contact us.

Digital Asset Management
As a successful studio we have had to manage metadata for very large multimedia projects. We offer two levels of digital asset management: Client Hosted and AOS Content Cloud. Both are powerful and secure, allowing brands and businesses to quickly locate and manage their content libraries. AOS Content Cloud features our mobile app that allows businesses to add content directly and securely to their library via any number of registered mobile devices or a web browser.
We also partner with the Canadian company Popul8 which offers a full suite of Google Streetview-class visual asset management tools. This state of the art capture service is designed to provide in-depth 360 degree views for training and maintenance in remote, unmanned or confined locations. Click here to contact us.
