Some videos require one or several shooting days. Some take place entirely in the editing stage such as animation videos and website overviews.
Our production days are a total of 10 hours on location or at the studio. If the production is outside of Chicago, we will add a travel day. During the production, our crew arrives on location or at the studio, typically around 8 am and begins load in and setup. Our crews can range from 2 to 10 people depending on the scope of the project.
Here is a walkthrough of our basic company overview video.
On the production day, two people come to the location for the interview. We often interview the founder or owner the company unless they decide an employee would be a better fit for the interview. Our two man team consists of a producer with vast experience Conducting interviews with individuals without any previous on camera experience. And our director of photography will take care of the technical set up and set up a cinematic interview set up. The interview takes about half an hour. Then depending on our previous discussions, we get additional footage of you or your employees as well as space, products and so on. The length of this process all depends on the need and size of the final video. Some of our previous films required up to 3 days of production but it is often all done in one day.
