Video Marketing Strategy
The most effective video marketing projects start with a solid strategy. We walk you through the four fundamentals of strategy: what it’s for (S.M.A.R.T. objectives), who it’s for (audience personas), how they’ll see it (distribution and promo) and how to track results (KPIs).
creative concept development
Keeping your strategic objectives in mind, we help you develop the creative vision for telling your stories most effectively and engagingly to your video audience.
Script Writing and Storyboarding
Our talented writers can turn your vision and messaging into a detailed script or a storyboard depending on the project.
Location Scouting and Management
Whether it’s for a simple corporate interview or a complex commercial shoot, our team will scout out the right locations to tell your story and take care of bookings, permits and other logistics.
Talent Casting and Management
For video content that requires acting talent, we’ll put out the casting calls, narrow down the list, take care of auditions and hiring, and prep the hires for the shoot.
As a full-service production company, we offer all the equipment, crew talent, and technical expertise you’ll need to get stunning footage. We offer packages ranging from individual videographers, with simple setups, to full crews to manage complex projects.
