Video Production FAQ
What is the Video Production process?
The video production process can seem daunting at first but we are here to make it as easy and as smooth as a freshly shaved Chimp in a Banana plantation.
Stage One: Pre-Production.
The first step in the process is all about preparation and setting the groundwork. During this phase, it's essential that we know what your message is going to be so that all the planning, research, problem-solving, and organization can be done before a camera is even switched on.
This generally involves discussions about the following: Video strategy and goals, budgets, timelines, script creation, talent/characters, locations.
Stage Two: Production.
This is where all of the footage for your video will be captured ready for compiling together into your shiny new video.
Stage Three: Post Production.
After the production has finished, the producer, editor, animator, VFX guys all get to work. During this phase, the video production team will undertake the process of organizing, reviewing and editing together all of the footage to form the structure of your story.
