We make the video production process as easy,
enjoyable and safe as possible

Step 1: Consultation

Our first chat will take place via a phone or Zoom call.  Once we understand the scope of your project, we provide a quote or proposal specific to your needs.   The consultation is a chance to talk about your goals for the video, the style you’d like to achieve and how you’ll use your film.  Our quote will take into account your budget, the film length and the services you’d like us to provide.

Step 2: Pre-Production

This stage involves planning all of the creative details such as the contributors, filming locations, script support and high-level storyboarding (the look and feel of your video). As full-service filmmakers, we support you at every step of the way.  You’ll work with a dedicated member of the team who will liaise with you about the production schedule.

Step 3: Production

Now it’s time for the fun bit; we craft your film! With our suite of professional film production kit, including cinema class cameras, LED location lighting, and discreet sound-kit, we’ll capture your footage in crisp 4k.   We are flexible – we can provide a discreet one-person team or a full video production team.   No matter how big or small the project, we provide the same high-quality, friendly service to every client.  We are able to work with minimal disruption around busy offices, open shops, active clinics or research spaces if that’s where your story needs to be told.

Step 4: Post-production and Delivery

Although we love filming, many people say the real magic happens in post-production. This is where we make your vision come alive.  We work with you to choose the best footage and cut it together seamlessly for a cinematic feel.  Using industry leading software, we are able to complete ultra-fast renders to get edits over to you quickly, add graphics and text, music and our archive of stock footage.

You have approval powers at every stage and you can comment directly on draft footage via our online platform. We’ll stay in close contact with you unless you prefer a hands-off approach, in which case we can create your vision while you get on with other things. Your final film is delivered through a secure download link.

How much does video production cost?

We provide a bespoke quote for each project because no two video productions are the same.   We will work to your budget and create a proposal based on your needs and your goals.

Drop us a line if you want to discuss cost further and we’ll have an open and friendly chat about what to expect. Get in touch here.
