What We Do
From idea to delivery, we will meet you where you are at to help develop a strategy, outline a process, hire a crew, shoot, edit, and bring your story to life. Sometimes you know exactly what you want. We can execute that. More often, we'll spend time up front honing a script, thinking about inspiring visuals, and planning to ensure the video will have its intended effect. A typical crew is 3-6 people to ensure a quality production.
