  • The Production Process

    How we do it

    1

    Consultation

    We figure out exactly what it is you need - from consultation to full video production. Once we've got a clear idea of your vision, we provide a quote, then a contract, and then we start working.

    2

    Pre Production

    We work with you to design the project down to the smallest detail. Through calls and emails, we document and plan out exactly how things will go once the cameras are rolling.

    3

    Production

    We execute your vision. And we make it look good.

    4

    Post Production

    We edit the produced content into its final form, and add any necessary vFx, graphics, color or sound work

    5

    Delivery

    We deliver in whatever format you need, while also offering archival storage on our own server.
