Please find a list below of the questions we most frequently get asked. They will help you understand the process and methods we use to create the perfect short films for you and your organisation.
If you can’t find the answer to your question, let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
It all depends on the complexity of your brief! Essentially, a short film will cost as much or as little as you want, because you set the budget. And that will be determined by the content you need to achieve the goals you’re aiming for.
The first step is to compile THE BRIEF. This helps us empower you to make your audience care about what you do and make the most of our content. Keep it short, but identify the following:
- What is the aim of the film? To inform, educate, raise awareness, motivate?
- Who is your target audience?
- What is the key message you want to convey?
- Where will the film be shown? Website, Social Media, at an Event?
- What is your timescale? When will the film need to be delivered by?
- Do you have any specific requirements? Motion graphics, special effects or full animation?
- Budget? It’s good to have an idea of what you want to spend. Take a look at our Services to get a clearer idea of the type of budget you will need.
- How do you want the film to look? This is called the “treatment”. Have you seen something that you like? Think about a Voiceover and Music style.
- Filming? What is the availability of staff, locations and resources?
Think about complementing your main film with Social Media Teasers to entice an audience and encourage them to find out more.
Also very effective are branded content – these help viewers better understand the product or service you provide. This can be a fun animation to communicate via your social media network or real life actuality where we delve deeper into your brand values, products or service. We will work with you to create genuine, long-term meaningful content that makes people care about what you do.
Or, have you thought about a mini documentary series for your YouTube Channel? We can help you to produce compelling documentaries – telling real stories CAN make a difference to your organisation! What case studies do you have?
Because trust is so important, testimonial and case study videos are also popular. Or you might consider company profiles of your founder or your key staff. (Take a look at some of our award-winning Work for inspiration)
It could be featured on your website which you could complement with short Teasers to spread the word via social network sites such as Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. More and more people are looking would rather watch a video about a product or service than read about it. We will even host your film or animation on our own website and YouTube channel at no extra cost. You could use your film to showcase in your reception area, or email them as part of virtual mail outs as well as share them with potential or existing clients.
Your media content can keep new customers interested by showing why you do what you do and how you do it, keeping existing customers up to date as well as showing what new services and offers are coming up.
There’s also scope for TV Advertising, which doesn’t have to be expensive and can make a fantastic addition to this feature, giving your organisation an extra boost in credibility. Our background in television enables us to offer a bespoke service at competitive prices.
With music soundtrack’s, we tend to use non-mainstream artists who charge a small fee to licence the music, which we would factor this into any quotes we do for you. When wishing to use mainstream music, the price of the licenses increase dramatically and they are often limited to a year’s use, so do bear this in mind when making your choice of track/s.
We create value by giving ethical client-focused organisations, genuine long-term meaningful content that is of television quality for a digital audience.
We are passionate about what we do, producing award-winning work that helps shape a new generation of people who make conscious choices.
