Mellissa Tong, started her career in radio and later brought her broadcasting skills to the International Channel, one of the first satellite TV stations in the US, to become their TV News Anchor, Reporter & Producer. At the job, besides anchoring the news, she was responsible for a 5-min human interest segment every day, where she covered a wide range of topics including science, technology, health, beauty, politics, as well as entertainment news and movie premieres.
As a reporter, she interviewed thousands of people from all walks of life, including Hollywood celebrities, and covered over 1200 stories. “At the time, I didn’t realize I was a storyteller, I thought I was just having fun,” says Mellissa. After the International Channel, Ms. Tong went on to work for CBS’ episodic TV show Martial Law before founding DuckPunk in 2000.
At DuckPunk, she continues to tell stories, whether it is for a TV commercial, digital campaign, branded content, a film, or a documentary. “Having a compelling and engaging story is the most powerful tool any company can have to connect with their audience,” says Mellissa. “Customers don’t buy based on facts and logic. They buy on emotions, and then use facts to justify their decision.”
DuckPunk works with small businesses as well as Fortune 500 clients such as Nissan, Verizon, Wells Fargo, and the California Department of Health, just to name a few. The awards Mellissa won include the Clio, multiple Addys and Tellys, and many more film festival awards from across the country.
