What we can do

Begin with the end in mind

Each one of our commercial projects start with a simple but powerful question: what’s your goal? We work backwards from there and keep the goal in mind during our entire process. Your goal is to drive more awareness of your brand? Awesome. It’s to bring more people into your store? We’ve done it. The goal is to educate your consumers on how to use your product? Let’s make it happen.

Scale your business with videos that convert

Our videos have helped business owners increase traffic to their website, keep customers engaged longer, increase product/service knowledge, and generate leads. We love when our clients tell us that our videos had a positive impact on sales.

Our goal is to help generate positive ROI for your brand. Whether that means increasing your followers on social media, bringing in more web traffic, or helping to generate leads is up to you.

We have all the bases covered

All projects are just a little different. But we’ve been through enough to know what gear we need, timelines to follow, locations to film, people to have, and snacks. Never forget snacks.

Pre-production

This is when we work with you to learn all about your business and define what you need from video. Some of the questions we might explore are: Who is your target audience? What platforms do you want to publish on? What are the key messages you want to communicate?

From there we’ll create a video outline and/or detailed script, confirm budgets, and arrange any filming dates with you.

Production

AKA ‘filming’. This is what most people think of when they talk about creating videos. Our crew will capture all the required footage to create you an awesome video. We might film at your premises, somewhere in the city relevant to your video’s message or even in our own homes! (Yes we’ve done it before and it included 10lbs of gummy bears)

Post Production

This is where we sit at our desks and click away for hours like madmen! And it's where lots of the magic actually takes place. Crafting the footage into a coherent narrative and adding any titles, music, voiceover or graphics that are needed!

Delivery Day

This is the best day! After the video has finally been approved by everyone on your team you can finally release it to the public for it to be liked, shared, and commented on.

Portfolio

Watch the videos that have caught the attention of over 1M viewers

Take a gander at some of our work. We’ve had the pleasure of creating films with some amazing businesses. Their videos have been seen over 1 million times on social media and on their websites. Our hope is that our work feels more like entertainment rather than advertising.

FAQs

Got questions about our commercial work?

Here are some questions that business owners have asked us before. We thought you’d appreciate it.

How long will it take to complete my video?
Plus

We have worked on some truly insane production timelines and delivered amazing results but we don't recommend it. Our average project timeline from first inquiry to delivery day is about 1 month.

What is the booking process?
Plus

After you’ve sent an inquiry form we will set up a meeting with you to go over your vision (we can also send out a project starter worksheet for our more introverted clients). Once we both have a clear idea of how the video will take place the rest is simple. We’ll sign a contract, you'll pay a small deposit and then we’ll get onto the fun part: filming and creating a perfect video for your business!

Do you travel?
Plus

Is the mitochondria the powerhouse of the cell? There is nothing we like better than packing all our gear and hopping in a car or plane to capture some epic footage someplace incredible! Wherever you need us, we'll be there!

How much does it cost?
Plus

This is probably the question we get asked the most, but it's the most difficult to answer and it depends on a bunch of things, like:

  • Whether we’re filming in one location or several
  • How long we need for filming and how large of a crew we require
  • How complex the edited video is
  • Whether we’re producing a single video or several related videos

That being said we work with clients who have a range of budgets so whatever your requirements we can find a solution

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
Plus

We get this question a lot, but the truth is our expertise lies in the video production realm not the hypothetical chucking capacity of a marmot. So we're not really sure.

Can we make your video go viral?
Plus

Unfortunately no. There is no set of specific guidelines that you can follow to make a video go “viral." However we’d be more then happy to offer advice on distributing your content to the widest possible audience and can recommend some of our trusted collaborators who specialize in SEO and social media if you want to explore this further.

How much input do you require from us?
Plus

As a starting point we’ll arrange a face to face meeting or ask you to fill out a short questionnaire to help us understand the project requirements. From there you can have as much or as little input into the scripting, filming, and editing as you’d like. In any case we’ll keep you informed at every stage of the process.
