Video & Film Production

Lights, camera, action! Video has the advantage of being highly viral and extremely mobile. Any business utilizing video as a tactic within their promotional campaigns is blowing away their competition. Whether it’s for your business or personal use, our experienced team will guide you through the process every step of the way.
We will work within your budget and help you with scriptwriting & storyboarding, choosing talent, finding a location, choosing the right equipment and creating the perfect look for your video.

Process

Never been involved in video production before? No problem! Before you start anything, let us sit down and brainstorm. We can meet at your place, or ours, or do a conference call on our toll free line. We will come up with a budget that fits your needs.We will get your ideas and work with you to create a script. Along with our own in-house writers, we can also connect you with a seasoned scriptwriter.

For the shoot, we will call on our team of specialists to best meet your needs: Producers, directors, camera-operators, lighting & audio technicians. You can be there to make sure what we put on tape is what you want. Your budget dictates whether we shoot at your facility, outdoors or in a studio. You can watch as our technicians set up all of the necessary equipment that will be required to give your finished video the correct look, lighting and sound. This is where we take your concept and bring it alive.

We can work with Tom Cruise, your niece Janet who starred in her high school play or a local professional who specializes in on camera work.

Editing. This is where the real magic is done. One of our talented, creative & friendly editors will mold your footage into the finished project. The raw footage from your shoot will be brought into one of our editing rooms. There you can work with one of our creative editors to re-arrange and massage the footage from the shoot into a finished product. Almost anything can be added in or removed, including: titles, music, animation, 3D effects, charts, graphs, still photos, brochures, PowerPoint presentations, existing video footage and professional narration. We also offer compression services, if your final cut is to be uploaded to the internet or the format needs to be changed.
