WHAT WE DO FOR YOU
Capture your impact
Organizations are focused on making their impact, but we find in the process, they often forget to capture that impact. So when the end of the year gala or annual report comes, they have to dig just to find a cell phone picture of major events. Working with us, you have a partner that is in tune with your impact (and your calendar) so we are there capturing your impact, so you can focus on your mission at hand.
Grow Your Audience
As co-founders of our own non-profit, we know how difficult it is to focus on the day to day work while simultaneously keeping your audience and supporters up to date on all that you are doing. You are accomplishing your mission, but if no one is made aware of it via social media, e-blasts or traditional media, you’ve only touched those who were able to be present. Your impact misses all those who are following you and your work from the media most convenient for them.
Expand your Capacity
We hear it all of the time “Our organizations are stretched thin.” “We need more staff with varied skills and obviously, more funding.” With a dedicated production company capturing your impact and growing your audience, you have a team with all the video skills you need that are creating content that you know will lead to greater funding. Our videos have helped generate millions for non-profit organizations. Organizations that expand are organizations whose story and impact is visually and emotionally captivating.
We create all types of videos
Fundraising / Promotional Videos
From conception to completion
Research & Development - We get excited about learning everything we can about your organization by having you share your vision and desired outcome for the project. We'll then take a deep dive into how we can connect those ideas to create an exciting & captivating piece for your target audience.
After we've gathered all our information during R&D, we'll then present our ideas for the most practical way to accomplish your project. As a team (both yours and ours), we'll refine those ideas until we have a plan, proposal, and production schedule to complete your project in the best way possible.
Writing & Storyboarding
This stage includes working on a script/outline and storyboarding, if working on a motion graphic, animation or scripted shoot.
Once the concept is agreed upon, our team will location scout, navigate the logistics of the shoot and commence filming. We do anything from half day shoots to out of town shoots lasting a week or more.
Once footage has been captured, we will start editing while simultaneously working on animation and/or motion graphics. Once we have a rough cut, we will share that with your team using our collaborate review process. Our standard is to give clients two sets of revisions. The final steps will be the final sound design and color grading. We want to make sure the final piece is just right, and will work with you to ensure that the final cut will be something we're all proud of.
