“An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.”

Pre-production is an essential part of the video creation process, and a significant amount of time is put aside for this stage to help ensure a smooth production.

It starts with formulating a strategy, then idea generation, before moving into research, and finally booking everything in and setting up the logistics.

We will work with you on all of the pre-production steps and make sure the foundation of the project is tailored to meet your deadlines, any specific goals you have, and to get the video seen by the right people.

“Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine."

While a video without words can still tell a story, almost all videos we make have a narrative that drives the story. That can be anything from explaining a complex issue, to using other people’s voices to characterize a moment in time.

These are all things that need to be reported, written down, edited, and said aloud.

With extensive experience in the media industry on both the editorial and commercial side, we know what it takes to report, break down topics, and script for a video. We can start from a blank canvas, or we can take what you already have and make it stand out.

"Cinema is a matter of what’s in the frame and what’s out."

You don't always need to go out and film to make a good video, but filming ensures you capture something original and create packages that stand out.
With an extensive network of talented videographers, drone operators, underwater cameraman, we have every situation covered. From small one camera productions to multi-camera shoots. Interview with professionals to raw footage in hostile environments.

"Blinking is some way of tabulating - a kind of carriage return, click, or save to disk - that helps the process of 'Okay, now change the subject.'"

Editing is where the story is laid out bare and put together. Whatever the project may entail, the edit is where that story will evolve.
With experience using many different editing platforms, we can take on projects ranging from a multi-interview, deep-dive feature to a “quick-turn” news package or a small 1-minute social clip.

"Picture yourself in a living room having a chat with your friends. You would be relaxed and comfortable talking to them, the same applies when public speaking."

If done right, live productions can produce compelling content that reaches audiences immediately.
Whatever your live production needs are, we can guide you through the setup, either on location or at home.
