Summary of our video production services:
The most important ingredients in any video project are ideas, scripting and development. In some cases these aspects are often overlooked. It is of high importance to study and look carefully in these areas because this will determine how good your video will be structured. If these areas are looked with less importance therefore you could miss your video having its desired effect as it should. We will work carefully with clients to understand what they try to put across and get the desire look and feel in the video.
During the filming process we will create a modern, stylish look using our new latest video technology equipment. We work with Canon 5D Cameras and lenses, monitor, soft lights, tripod, slider and jib (to create movements in shots). Our sound packages included are radio mics, a boom mic and an audio mixer and recorder are also supplied. For higher budget productions we can arrange to hire in a higher spec camera such as a Canon C300 or the Sony FS-700.
We use a combination of color grading and effects to enhance and polish videos to a dream level. We edit using either Final Cut Studio 7 or Adobe Premiere CS6. We provide voice over recording and editing and we choose and buy in the right royalty free music for your video. On larger budgets we can create unique music for your production.
Music videos, documentaries, commercials, short/long films can range massively in price depending on exactly what is needed in the video. It can also vary on the number of takes for the video. With some videos it may take days, weeks or even months depending on the weather conditions, traveling and also the level of work needed to do. Our promotional music video filming have a starting rate of £190/£500 for a considerably good looking 4 minutes video and can move up to a much bigger budget depending on what you intend to put in your video. We give the very best value for money whatever the budget is high or low we put as much of your money “on the screen”.
How We Work:
1. Establish a plan.
To start your film project we would recommend from you a track for the video, also brief ideas, storyboards, themes or concepts that you may have. If you do not have one, don‘t worry but if you only have a vague idea that will do as we can help you come up with the right idea for your track and your budget. From that stage we will arrange a meeting with you depending on which location you are. Following to that we will have a chat either face to face /over the phone about things such as locations and what your final budget will represent.
The foundation of a quality video will definitely be laid on a budget which dictates what is going to be used in your video production. Although we dispose of tools to produce good professional looking videos for a fraction of what can cost more elsewhere, in some cases certain things may be added to your production costs for a better outcome. Bigger story boards will obviously cost more than a simple performance video especially if several locations are to be used and also the traveling cost to a different location.
Once a budget is agreed we will have it signed and guarantee not to go over that budget, so long as your requirements and the logistics do not alter.
3. Choose locations
next step is definitely the location for the film. We can arrange different
locations in many areas of stunning natural beauty including many others that
are free to use. We can also arrange venues through our contacts
therefore that should not be a problem for you unless you chose to shoot your video in a
location of your choice.
In general we prefer to speak with our clients in person regarding finances so please call or drop an email to arrange a consultation. Once
all the logistics we have discussed have been met, we will arrange a
specific date for the shoot at your time convenience. This will
follow by a 50% deposit of our agreed payment fee to commence the filming. Payments can be made in cash and soon through our web-store page that we are currently working to put online soon.
5. The Filming process
The important thing while shooting is working quickly and efficiently with the aim to do things right and strive to maintain energy and enthusiasm in both ourselves and the team. We have to ensure everyone enjoys themselves during the shoot and take with them good memories back home for repeated business. People tend to be at their most creative personality when there is a good vibe in the air. We keep a friendly attitude and share little jokes, snacks during breaks and try and make everyone feel cared for and be part of the whole process. We encourage everyone to loosen-up and give their best to spark the video for viewers to enjoy watching and sharing!
6. Editing and Montage
After filming processes have been completed, we use movie softwares like Adobe After Effects CS6 to create and assemble the story of what we shot. This is where talent and imagination take place respectively. After that stage has been completed we will send a sample copy of the first finish edit for you to appreciate and if any amelioration is needed we will have it done (the amount of adjustments may depend on your budget). We will produce the master copy and send to you. We can also help you with file conversion for Internet streaming via sites such as YouTube for free.
