What we do:
Ideas are everywhere. But ideas in and of themselves aren’t worth much unless you can execute them. And to execute a successful video production, you need a plan. We know how to make it all happen, and it all starts in pre-production.
It’s the backbone of the video production process, and nothing happens without it.
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 in addition to video production.
This is where we capture the raw material for your video production project. Most of the time it’s shooting the video, but it can also include:
- Music acquisition
Some video production projects require a large crew and talent, some might just require a camera operator. Either way—we can cover it.
Beyond traditional video production we can help you develop a video strategy for your business or organization. Or even something as simple as helping you to choose the right webcam or lighting for your video conferenceing calls. We also can provide video SEO services, and placement so your videos will actually be seen by the right audienece. Feel free to reach out and chat about your project!
Some might say this is the most important step of video production, 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.
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.
When you work with us, you're in good company!
