Our Video Production Process

Our multi-step corporate video production process has been tested and proven on over 1,000 video productions for clients of all sizes in dozens of industries. Our process works for any type of corporate video production you need, whether it’s a 90-second explainer video or a five-minute promotional business video:

Our process is our trusted road map. We follow it step by step, so we never lose our way, miss a deadline or go over-budget with your important corporate video production. It guides us through five steps of our pre-production stage, three steps of our production stage and the final three steps of post-production. Then, it’s a wrap!
