DMW Films is a media company that creates high quality visual content for today’s digital platforms. We work with our clients to engage their customers directly to their target demographics, to increase their audience engagement and bring them new, refreshing opportunities to grow their businesses.
Founded by Derek Hakkim, we have worked with start-ups and large corporate media companies alike from all over the map! We love what we do and go to great lengths to deliver world class results, offering creative, flexible and budget conscious solutions for any sized project.
It all starts with a few questions about your brand and your customers that help us to establish the strategy, creative direction, and success metrics of your campaign. Don’t hold back, the more insights you can give us, the better we can craft your brand’s story.
Together, we review the brief and start to brainstorm ideas and proposals. We want to find out more about what your goals and needs really are and make sure that your story addresses them. This meeting is intended to be fun and collaborative, bouncing ideas off one another to see if anything sticks. From here we create a Statement of Work and get started!
We handle all of the logistics needed to tell your brand story, from writing and storyboarding the script to location scouting, casting, rehearsal and more. We ensure that everything is thorough and ready to go on the day of filming so your shoot goes off without a hitch.
This is the fun part. We build a set, get the lights and camera out and say “action!” We handle media management, craft services, transportation and anything else needed to capture the footage necessary to tell your story in the most compelling way. We said Full Service, didn’t we?
Our editors use the footage to mold your story into its final product. Then, we bring in our animators, voiceover artists, sound designers and colorists to add all the details that bring it to life. It’s the most time consuming step, but also where the magic of your story comes together.
Once you have approved the final version, we’ll send you all the files you could need including the final master, encoded files for YouTube and web based video services, even Instagram ready files if you’d like. That’s a wrap!
Each completed project makes us even more hungry. Hungry for more new adventures, more ideas and at least some more twinkies. As a result we deliver a better experience for our clients.
