PRE-PRODUCTION

Pre-Production is where all the details and logistics get planned out.  We begin with a brainstorming session and then agree with our client on a concept and production budget.  From there we generate an outline, which is a refined concept with a beginning middle and end and hits on all the important talking points.  We then begin location scouting, casting, crewing up and scheduling.

PRODUCTION

It’s light’s, camera, action time and the most exciting part of the whole process. Our excellent crew comes together during production to execute all the pre production plans to make the “magic” happen. Production can be anywhere from a single day to several weeks of filming depending on what we’re looking to accomplish.

POST PRODUCTION

Once everything is shot, it gets backed up onto hard drives and goes into the editing suite where it’s time to piece it all together. Through a series of rough cuts we work with our clients to refine the video until it’s is where we need it to be. It’s here that we add music, graphics, do color correction and an overall sound design that tightens everything up and polishes the video to perfection.
