About

THE RIGHT SKILLS AND TOOLS

At the heart of any good company is outstanding people. People who understand how to work with everyone from love-struck wedding couples to seasoned professionals in the film industry.

Our people are well-trained with the best tools for the job, have an artistic and creative drive and will walk you through any project all the way from conception to finished product with ease.

Our mission is to ease the process of working with you to understand needs, realize your vision, and will leave you with a lasting impression you will cherish.

HOW WE WORK

We believe in doing things the right way. While not every project requires these things, our skills and know-how allows us to scale up and down as needed.

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!
