OUR PROCESS

We offer quality, affordability, and convenience.

– Cinematic quality and documentary-style portrayal of your mission through real stories and real people.

 – Great value for filming, editing, and photography packages.

– We are conveniently located on the UC Berkeley campus.


1. CONSULTING & STRATEGY

At the start of each project, we meet with you to understand your audience and objectives. From there, we collaborate to uncover the most effective storyline that supports these goals.

2. PRE-PRODUCTION

Our team takes a journalistic approach to crafting your film’s story. We develop a narrative arc for the story along with a series of interview questions to guide the featured speakers. You then review and provide feedback on the plan. With a concise pre-production document in hand, we have clear alignment between the client, filmmaker, and editor and are ready to begin production.

3. PRODUCTION

Our filmmaking team arrives onsite, stages the equipment, meets the subjects, and films for one or more hours. We capture the best content while putting your speakers at ease.

4. EDITING & DELIVERY

Our editors bring your story to life using segments that accomplish the film’s goal and narrative arc. The team adds appropriate music to support the mood of the story, mixes sound, and adds graphic elements as needed. We provide an initial version for your review and feedback, enlisting you as a partner in the creative process. After the final cut is approved, we deliver the video in high-quality digital format suitable for large and small screens.
