A Breakdown of Video Production Services we offer:

Pre-production

Ideas are everywhere. But ideas in and of themselves aren’t worth much unless you can execute them. And to execute, you need a plan. We know how to make it all happen, and it all starts in pre-production — the place where vision meets research, scripting, budgeting, casting, scheduling, locations and story boarding. It’s the backbone of the process, and nothing happens without it.

SEO & Social
Search Engine Optimization is the art of getting your stuff found by the right people on the web. We stay up-to-date on all the latest trends and technologies to help you solve the unique SEO problem of getting video found on social sites and YouTube.
Production
This is where we capture the raw material for your project. Most of the time it’s shooting, but it can also include recording, music acquisition, and photography. Some projects require a large crew and talent, some might just require a camera person. Either way—we can cover it.
Graphics
We can add the graphic elements to your video that will help explain, engage and enlighten. Professional title design, still photography and motion graphics will make your video look polished and professional. Ask about our full suite of affordable creative services.
Post Production
Some might say this is the most important step, and we would have to agree. Editing is the process where the raw material is crafted into a story. We pull the best cuts then place them in the right order for maximum impact. We prepare the final product for delivery, which can then be used everywhere from the big cinema screen to broadcast or the web.
Distribution
Do you need a landing page for your video? Should you burn Blu-ray discs or DVDs? What are the benefits of putting a video on YouTube vs. Vimeo? Is Facebook a platform you should be paying attention to now? Getting your video out to the right audience can be almost as hard to do as making the video itself. We can help you decide the best way to distribute and market your video for maximum engagement.
