The 10 Steps.*

01. We meet. Coffee is on us.*

*Interchangeable with lunch or happy hour. Can't meet in person? Hangouts > Skype. We begin to discuss your project/product and what you're looking for.

02. Give us some time to brainstorm.  You planted the seed, so now let us grow something beautiful in our idea garden.

* Truthfully, there's far more than 10 steps. Our productions are broken down into 3 phases:

Pre-Production

We rely heavily on a strong pre-production phase that involves information gathering to better understand the product/company and development of a pitch. 

A proposal will then be sent including a storyboard to help illustrate the pitch in addition to an estimate. Once the proposal is refined and approved, we move on to planning for the production date starting by establishing the production date(s). Sufficient time is needed for location scouting, casting, music selection, stylists (hair, makeup, wardrobe), motion graphics planning, and anything else pertinent before the start of the production.


Production

Typically this is about 2 full days. We do blocking (rehearsals), lighting, recording, review and repeat as necessary. Expect great food and coffee to keep everyone happy. Add Fruit Roll-Ups and everyone will be happy.


Post-Production

Post-production starts immediately after production date. The 1st draft is uploaded privately in an online screening room in which you will be able to give feedback and commentary. A 2nd draft is then uploaded for your final revision.

Final file delivery is done through a secure electronic download.

Then, we celebrate.
