Not your grandpa’s B2B ads (unless your grandpa is delightfully quirky and a great storyteller)

He is? Our sincerest apologies. Let’s make a B2B spot he (and you) can feel proud of.


What if your B2B ad didn’t have to be boring or “corporate” to sell?

What you do is complicated, but that doesn’t mean it’s not exciting, innovative, or full of value. You shouldn’t have to pay someone to make a boring video that barely bumps your marketing results. 

You understand that the best ads make people feel things, not regurgitate industry jargon.

We know, we know. Your industry doesn’t do humor, or stories, or, well, feelings. But you didn’t come here to be like everyone else. You came here to stand out.

That’s where Umault (pronounced oo-malt) comes in. We make B2B ads that people actually want to watch.


So what’s with the name?

Umault is a play on umlaut, the diacritical mark (you know, those German two dots loved by heavy metal bands). The umlaut draws attention to what would otherwise be overlooked. Hey, isn’t that the point of great marketing? Umault’s goal is to make sure your amazing product or service stands out in a sea of mediocre content.

Oh, and it’s pronounced oo-malt.

Our team

Guy Bauer, Founder and Creative Director

Guy has been making commercial videos for over 20 years and is the author of “Death to the Corporate Video: A Modern Approach that Works.” He started the agency in 2010 after a decade of working in TV, film and radio. He’s been losing hair and gaining weight ever since.

He’s a Cincinnati Bengals fan, which is his only life regret.

Hope Morley, COO

When Hope joined the company in 2016, she brought her previous experience as an editor and project manager to the production supervisor role. Since then she has expanded beyond the production department to managing all of Umault’s video marketing projects, creative team, and content marketing.

On weekends you can find her catching up on The New Yorker, cooking, and chasing after her toddler, cat, and dog (in that order).

Amber Copley

Amber Copley, Project Manager

Amber’s PMP experience ranges from animation to publishing. Physically ambidextrous, she uses a creative yet analytical methodology for each project.

In her spare time she likes to tackle DIY house projects, which can be best described as having mixed results.

Jen Bauer, Producer

Jen used her ten years of experience as a litigation paralegal organizing multimillion dollar cases to transition to the role of producer.

She enjoys baking with her 4 and 6 year old girls and looks forward to the day when they can gently stir.
