Standard Project Flow

Step One

Discovery

At the start of every project, the discovery phase plays a major role in solidifying goals and expectations for the project. This usually starts with meeting our photo and video team to talk through the project flow and laying out what we need from your team to produce a successful project.

Step Two

Pre-Production

At this point, we have laid out our concept for how we plan to handle the project. This is where our team will work in collaboration with you to layout the needed talent, locations, and a buttoned-up schedule for our production days. Depending on the type of production this phase can also entail scriptwriting, storyboarding, selecting additional crew, or hiring out needed actors for higher-end spots.

Step Three

Production

Depending on the type of project this part can either take place in a studio or on location. Within each setting, our team works to produce the planned content through a collaboration between the talent and our clients. Most of the content we create is lit with multiple lights and staged to show the best within your brand.

Step Four

Post Production

Once we reach this part of the project, our photo and video team digs into editing content to be ready to live in the world. Depending on the types of deliverables this can entail anything from building story arch through video interviews to processing images for final use. At this point, we keep you in the loop as we have content for review and feedback before implementation.

Step Five

Distribution

Once content reaches this part of the project, we work internally to put your content into the world. Whether that be placing it on a website or embedding it into digital advertising. This part is key for helping reach the goals we established at the start of the project.
