Life is Art In Motion.

There is no more perfect a picture than life itself. Creation is the truest form of art. We use video to express its endless beauty. 

 

That includes your story. You don’t need to add anything, pretend, or be something you’re not. You just need us to sift through the sand and unearth the gold. 

 

We marry award-winning nonfiction storytelling with a deep appreciation of your customer’s journey. We capture what matters, and, ultimately, what reverberates.

Development

We sit down with you and listen to your objectives and details about your target customer, value proposition, strategy and budget.

 

We then ideate with you in a creative session that is compassionate and inspirational. We base our work on stories and events that already exist—we don’t need to create fictional stories. Oftentimes, you may not realize just how amazing your stories are, so we make sure to find those hidden gems that will resonate with your market.

 

Together, we decide which type of video would be most cost-effective and impactful to pierce through your competitive landscape.

 

Lastly, we provide a competitive brief that outlines the plan forward to make sure we’re on the same page before starting the exciting filmmaking journey together.

Production Planning

The goal here is to address all of your concerns and detail the production so that you can enjoy a surprisingly effortless and inspirational filmmaking journey with us.

 

Based on the development work, we book and prepare the talent with pre-interviews on the phone to coach them before the shoot and get a solid grasp of the story. We then give you a production plan detailing the logistics of the shoot, including crew members, film dates, times, and shooting locations.

Shooting

We conduct interviews, compassionately coaching and pulling authentic dialogue from the subject matter, whether trained or untrained. We shoot scenes and reenactments, capturing unique moments and material to tell a compelling story crafted in post-production.

Story Writing

Scenes and interviews are transcribed into Word documents. Then we weave a story together first on paper to efficiently, cost-effectively illustrate your story. Based on the written story, we create an audio track with dialogue and background music to give you a taste of the video experience before visuals are added.

 

We work with you adjusting the story with  your feedback, to make sure nothing is missing or if sensitive content needs to be removed.

Post-Production

The selected scenes and narrative material are edited into a visual whole. Music, sound design, color correction, and text graphics are added, which are often the unsung heroes of a production. But when done masterfully, they turn your video into art. The final delivery of the video includes a mastered sound mix.

Digital Marketing

Working with our in-house digital marketers, we develop a digital marketing strategy with you to maximize the exposure of your video to help you achieve your end-state goals.
