Creating A Video
Is A Collaborative Process
It's a process that begins long before the cameras start rolling. Our team will work with you to understand what you want to achieve. Our goal is to make sure that everything goes smoothly and that you're able to leverage what we produce in as many ways as possible. (Hint: don't just put the video on YouTube - embed it on your website, share it via email, extract smaller pieces to post on social media - shoot it once, but show it everywhere!)
Pre-Production - We Plan to Succeed!
The pre-production phase begins with a meeting to discuss your objectives and outline the concept for the video you have in mind. We will also explore additional ways in which your video can be utilized. If your project requires a script, our writers will work with you to be sure that every word is in place and approved before we bring in the video crew. While at your location, we'll tour the spaces where the filming will be done so that we can plan out camera angles and determine what equipment and other resources will be required to capture the footage we need. Once the shoot date is scheduled, we will work with you to prepare your location and your people so that everything and everyone involved looks great when the camera rolls!
Production - Lights, Camera, Action!
On the day of the shoot, the Davideo crew will arrive with lots of equipment and plenty of positive enthusiasm! If the project calls for your staff and your customers to appear on screen, they will be in good hands. Being on camera can be daunting, especially when sharing personal stories about one’s experiences with a company, a product, or a service. We are proud of our ability to put subjects at ease and to create an environment in which they are comfortable to speak freely and from the heart. Even people who are used to public speaking will sometimes feel out of their depth in front of the camera or reading off of a TelePrompTer. Our experience and professionalism allows us to guide you through the shoot and get the job done.
Post Production - Let the Magic Begin!
After shooting has wrapped and we have all the materials we need to tell your story, the next step is editing. Candice Moore, our lead editor, will skillfully carve through the footage without ever compromising authenticity. She has an incredible knack for putting together the best pieces to tell your story. You will have the option to review the raw footage and provide input. If a narrator is required, we will present several different candidates for your consideration and then record the script. Once we have blended all of the elements into a complete video, we will present the first draft for your approval. Generally, it takes just one more round of tweaking to complete the final version and deliver the encoded files. And we can also help you with the logistics of embedding the video wherever it needs to be seen. After all, whether your goal is to train your employees, illustrate how you’re aiding your community, or celebrate a successful year, you have a story that needs to be told.
