HOW WE DO IT

“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”

~Milton Glaser

CLIENT PROMISE

Design

Production is as simple as 1-2-3! Or at least that’s what you’ll think after you work with us.

We take a complicated creative process and package it into three steps.

01

Pre-production

This phase encapsulates everything that needs to happen before you actually press record on your video project. Most people describe this as the planning phase, but we see it as the start of creating something magical, together! 

02

Production

Lights, camera and…action! The production phase includes everything that happens from the first shoot to the final day of filming.

03

Post Production

Once filming concludes, post-production takes over. This is where the real magic happens!
