Over the last 8 years, we have developed a 5-step methodology that ensures we are aligned with you from the beginning.
The 5 steps:
- Story development.
- Post production.
Early in the process we focus on listening to you. Armed with an understanding of your purpose, we work on finding a strong story. At this stage we use a microphone instead of a camera. This helps authentic stories to emerge smoothly, and reduces production costs.
When we find a story that moves us, we are ready to move the story. We schedule a shoot date and our crew goes to work.
After production, the first cut we show you is what we call a “radio edit,” an audio-only version of the story, complete with music. The first time we gave this to a client, they said “Wow, this sounds like a This American Life piece. We can’t wait to see what it looks like with video!” The radio edit introduces you to our approach and allows us to make changes quickly and inexpensively.
After you approve the radio edit, we move on to adding the video. We then present a rough cut, refine it, and deliver it to you.
Using this 5-step approach, we’ve found that our projects fly through approvals. By taking extra care to align our vision with yours from the beginning and delivering the edit in stages, we keep production costs low and our clients happy.
The best time to tell your most important story is as soon as possible. Contact us for a free consult and let’s get started.
