Our process

What type of stories do we love to tell?  Find out in this video!

We know that bringing in someone to produce a piece that will represent you and your story can be a scary proposition.  It can feel like you’re handing over control to a stranger and you don’t really know how it’s going to turn out.  We have structured our process to make things easy and predictable for you, while ensuring that you are getting solid value.

Project startup

Our process is designed to remove unknowns for you.  For example, we publish general package pricing right here.  We’ll document things so that you’ll know what you’re getting, when you’re getting it, and what your role is in the process.  We’ll connect with you and have a conversation about the project where we’ll ask a bunch of questions to make sure we’re all on the same page.  And we’ll toss around some ideas about what it might look like and what constraints need to be placed on the project. Then we’ll release our creative hounds to hunt down relevant and compelling ways for how we can make sure your story heard.

Once we’ve determined a direction, we’ll go away and write up a description of the project for you.  This will include a break down of several phases, deadlines, and costs of each phase.

Guaranteed estimates

As long as the project’s requirements don’t stray significantly from the project description that we produce, your end costs are guaranteed to match those in the project description.  Your project’s pricing will be unique to your needs, but check here to get an idea of general project pricing.

If the project is creeping beyond the plan, we’ll let you know, and we can adjust things to suit.  It’s not about restricting the evolution of the project – it’s about making sure you know what to expect.

Take the project away with you

If you are not happy with the way the project is progressing, you have the option to walk away at the end of any phase, with no penalty for pending phases. And we try to design the project phases so that you have something concrete that you can take with you should you choose to stop production.

At the end of the project, you have the option of taking copies of all the assets that were developed for you – footage, scripts, completed videos, graphics, etc.  You paid for the work, so we think you should be able to do what you want with it.

Honesty & Fun

We’re here to help you tell your story, not corner you into anything.

We’re big on honesty.  Our experience allows us to avoid being overly optimistic in our projections and estimates.  And if we’re not a good fit for what you want to do, we’ll tell you that upfront.  We want to develop long term relationships, so we try to avoid anything that might jeopardize that.  It’s the right way to do business, and it’s the right way to do life.

And we love to have fun.  While we’re serious about doing great work, we try to keep things light.  We want to look forward to coming to work every day, and we want you to look forward to working with us.  Fun breeds creativity, creativity breeds great content, and great content that tells your story is what we’re looking for.
