Every project is different, every client is different. We offer end-to-end production solutions as well as fragmented production services depending on your needs. Before embarking on any project, it is important to understand what you need us for...
This phase can take many forms, depending on what you're coming to us with. The process can take days, weeks or months depending on the project, its needs and the required approval schedule.
Our concept approach starts with an all-out idea blitz. We throw the good, the bad and the ugly around until strings of thought make undeniable connections. We hunker-down for 4-6 hour sessions regularly. You're invited--stay hydrated.
We leave this phase with a vetted script, storyboards, references and any other materials that will help guide our production towards the most ideal outcome for our coveted creative. All of these assets will act as the blueprint for the production and deliverables. Any time a curveball is thrown, we will go back to these to make sure we are staying true to the theme/message/brand.
Strategy will include location scouting, casting, set building, prop building and production scheduling. We also want to plan for any contingencies, like that rain Portland is so famous for...
The culmination and execution of concept and strategy--this is why we play the game. Production days fly-by, and always come with their share of positive surprises.
We have seen it all, and so, we will always prepare you for any circumstance. This is when you get to see that in full-force.
Long hours? Yes. High-stress? Sometimes...but it's always worth the effort. Production is like making love--you'll always have something at the end, but the effort makes all the difference as to what that something is.
Editorial is a very particular affair of highly nuanced tuning. Subtle inflection, pacing and other finite details will become the central focus of a team full of otherwise reasonable people. It's fun--in its own way.
Whether we are doing the cutting or not, we support you throughout the process. Your producer will always be here to help answer questions, solve problems and get you and your project to the finish-line.
