Our Six-Step Video Production Process:

Step One - Production Planning

Throughout the first step of the production process, our production team sets out to gain insight into the project by answering a list of questions: who will be involved with the project, what will be needed for the project from start to finish, where will filming be taking place, what is the proposed timeline for the project, and what are you aiming to accomplish with your production

By answering these questions, a conclusive production plan can be laid out. This plan will help steer the project toward a successful conclusion and ensure that all of the people involved are on the same page during the production process.

Step Two - Script Writing

Once the production planning step has been concluded the scriptwriting can begin. The scriptwriting process is the most important part of any production project. Without a solid narrative driving your production, no amount of quality cinematography or visual effects will help. 

Through storytelling, you can influence and sway your audience’s minds and ensure greater success for your project. Our team includes talented script and copywriters with years of experience and a passion for stories.

Step Three - Communication and Collaboration

In the third step, our production team presents the first draft of the script. This opens up a collaborative space wherein we ensure that all of the stakeholders involved are satisfied with what has been scripted. This also gives space to include certain brands or investors within the script. 

Once the script has been adjusted with the proposed updates and brand guidelines, the final script is produced and distributed between the production team and stakeholders.

Step Four - Visual Preparation:

Once the script and production plan has been finalised, the team moves forward with the final stage of pre-production planning. Our production team starts by conducting a table reading, wherein all of the actors and crew familiarise themselves with the script. Once concluded, a storyboard is developed to aid in visualising the production

Thereafter, a shot list is produced for each part of the script to prepare the crew and ensure that the filming of your production project runs smoothly.

Step Five - Filming

With the script, storyboard and shot list in hand filming can commence. Our production team plans each shot to ensure we capture exactly what is needed. The gear such as lighting, lenses, cameras and other requirements are packed and checked beforehand to allow for quick setup times between takes. 

Depending on the scale of the production, filming may take up to several days, planning and sticking to a strict timeline is paramount in this step.

Step Six - Post-production:

After filming has been concluded and the editing process commences, it is important to communicate any special requirements to our production team to ensure that our editors have a clear understanding of how the story should flow, which music and effects to use and what is required to finalise the product. 

Once the content has been edited and reviewed, a final draft will be produced and the video can be exported by our editors to suit your specific needs: be it for web, television or streaming platforms.
