OUR PROCESS

With every project we take on, the first thing we do is listen. We want to hear your goals and vision for your video. We then put our knowledge, creativity and expertise to work to help you accomplish those goals.

Step 1

Communication

Video production is a collaborative effort, and it all starts with you. We’ll work with you and listen to what you want out of your video so we can provide the best possible content that is engaging and gives you results.

Step 2

Script & Storyboards

A script is more than just words on a page – it’s the foundation for every aspect of video production. Through script development, we can help you find the heart of the story you want to tell, and then create storyboards to help visualize the outcome. Storyboarding is how we plan shot types, camera movements, angles, and lighting to bring your script to life.

Step 3

Pre-Production

Making sure your video is the best it can be takes planning, planning and more planning. We’ll create a pre-production packet that includes script, storyboards, schedule, acting talent, production crew members, timelines and more to let you know what to expect every step of the way.

Step 4

Principal Photography

Principal photography is just another name for filming. We’ll plan out the filming schedule with you ahead of time and include all those details in a production packet so you’ll know exactly what to expect on shoot days. Our production team size will depend on your project, but typically includes a sound engineer, camera operators, a director of photography, production assistants, and many other equally important roles as needed.
We use the best video production equipment for your project – whether that’s cinema-grade cameras and lenses or a lower profile, smaller handheld camera. We have access to a large inventory of any necessary equipment for creating a quality, professional video.

Step 5

Editing & Graphics

Our editing suite is set up to handle projects of any size. Editing happens in a few stages – first we’ll create a few drafts and then work with you either in our studio or remotely to fine-tune the video to a final cut. Then we’ll add any graphic effects needed, such as logo animations, titles, and transitions to make your video stand out.
During this phase, all of the shots, audio clips, and animations that will make up your video are coming together, but color grading and sound mixing refinements come after nailing down the final cut.

Step 6

Color & Audio

Once we have the final cut of your video, we’ll work on color-correcting, color-grading and audio mixing. Color-grading allows us to give your video even more depth, and provides a more refined look by bringing out brighter brights and contrasting darker shades.
Particular color adjustment choices are made for a video based on several considerations: the emotions you want to elicit with the video, overall stylistic preferences, brand guidelines, and the screens your video will be viewed on most frequently.
After color-grading, we’ll complete the audio mixing, smoothing any volume differences and balancing any voiceover, sound effects, and music in your video to provide the best possible sound experience regardless of where people watch. Then we’ll create the final video file in any format required!

OUR VIDEO PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT

We film with multiple, 4k cinema cameras and use professional, cinema-grade lenses and lighting for quality footage. Our editing and color-grading suite includes Adobe Premiere, After Effects & DaVinci Resolve.
