What We Do
As a full-service video production company, we will take care of your work from the start to finish.
Creative: Our creative team will figure out how to visualize the value of your brand and product so your audience can understand how it works, what is the difference and why they should have it in their lives. We will provide a brief treatment that summarizes the content of the video, reference videos and photos to help you understand how it will look, a storyboard that lays down everything in detail, and a plan that includes the budget and timeline of our production.
Pre-production: We will team up the most talented crew from our in-house team as well as our vast network of filmmakers; we will scout the best location to place your product and story; we will cast the actors and models who can best represent your brand; and we will choose the most suitable equipment to shoot the video and photos in the most efficient way.
Production: Our professional team will make sure everything we have discussed during the creative and pre-production phase is translated into visual images.
Post-production: In this phase, we will meticulously shape the work into its final form with all the available resource, such as motion graphic and VFX, original music score and licensing, color correction as well as sound mixing. We will make sure the final delivered work is nice and polished and is ready to be distributed.
