Phase One
Development

The first step in the process of creating a film is to bring the client and production team together to discuss the scope of the project. This process identifies elements such as branding, target audience and the tone and feel for the project.

Phase Two
Pre-Production

The second step in the process includes the organization for the road ahead. It is essential to do all the necessary pre-planning, research, problem-solving and organization necessary to set your video project up to be successful. In this phase we identify locations, cast talent, storyboard, script and create a timeline.

Phase Three
Production

Preparation is now complete and the story begins to come to life. During this stage the cameras are rolling, the lights are on and the sound is speeding. We have our guide from the pre-production stage to lead us to success.

Phase Four
Post-Production

After the production phase is complete, the post-production team begin the process of reviewing the footage, sorting the footage and stitching the story together piece by piece. Once the first draft is produced, the revision process begins. Once the video is finalized and approved, it’s then time to export and format the project to the specific platform for optimal playback.
