Film and video projects can be a daunting endeavor, especially if this is your first time. Our process is built on collaboration and consistent contact with our clients. We work tirelessly to communicate early and often to limit the number of surprises that pop-up during production. Here’s a quick primer of our process:
When you green light the project, we’ll take everything we learned from our call and develop different creative angles to tell your story. You can pick your favorite, mix and match elements of each, or send us back to the writer’s room. This is the most important stage of your project, so it’s critical we take our time and get it right.
Now that creative is locked, we’ll start pulling everything together. This will vary by project but usually includes setting the timeline, hiring crew, scouting locations, casting actors, and anything else needed before the cameras start rolling.
This is where the fun begins and you start to see your project come to life. We prefer our clients join us on set so they can provide immediate feedback and creative input. It’s way easier (and cheaper) to make adjustments during the shoot than to fix it in post. Plus, our sets are a ton of fun and always have a snack table.
This is where the real magic happens. Your raw footage heads off for editing, sound design, motion graphics, visual effects, and all other things post. You’re welcome to sit with the editor in-studio or use our convenient web software to review cuts and provide notes from anywhere. We work tirelessly to make sure we get everything just right before it gets mastered and delivered.
When the edit is locked, the music is selected, and graphics approved, your project is ready for finishing. In finishing, we color grade the footage to make the image pop, mix the audio so everything sounds just right, and export the master files.
