unique brand films for small businesses

Do you want to truly engage your viewers and connect with your most ideal clients? Let’s work together to create an inspiring video that showcases your brand's passion and purpose and allows your personality to shine through.

Video currently constitutes over half of the world’s Internet traffic, and by 2019, it is estimated to make up more than four-fifths of all Internet traffic. As a small business, it’s essential to keep up with the changing times by promoting your service or product through high quality, strategic video content. As an experienced storytelling filmmaker and successful business owner myself, I will plan and create a thoughtful, engaging, and emotive video for your business that will leave clients falling in love with you and clearly visualizing how your brand will fit into their lives.

Select from two tiers of brand film experiences:

 

T h e   L u x e

For the brand owner looking for an elevated experience and hand-holding

through discernment of vision, goals, and marketing strategy


FIRST MEETING (the vision...in-person)

 

Successful brand films require a significant amount of pre-production planning. Once your retainer is paid, I will send you a detailed branding and vision questionnaire to gather rich information about you, your business, your target market, and your goals for our project. I will use the answers from that questionnaire to come up with a concept and draft a storyboard/script for your session to be filmed, and a general timeline for your project. I will present that to you at our first meeting, where I will clarify our goals, talk about the flow and the vibe, and make any necessary adjustments with your input. We will also consider all logistics that need to be addressed in advance of filming. This session may last a few hours. The goal: to be on the same page with vision and mission before our shoot.


SECOND MEETING (the details...online)

 

We will have a second meeting via video chat closer to the session date where we finalize all the details and summarize our planned project. We will also follow up on any logistical situations to ensure a smooth filming day. At this meeting, I will also present your three hand-selected music options for your film, which we will narrow down to one together.


FILM SESSION (the big day...on-location)

 

On the day of the session, I plan for up to 4 hours of filming, and this includes the option for a casual mini-interview so you can speak from your heart about why you do what you do in order to truly connect with your viewers. If you’d rather not have an interview, we can infuse your message through voiceover and layer that into your video. If I feel like we need extra time for filming based on the concept we’ve discussed (for reasons such as child model cooperation or other unforeseen circumstances) then I will quote you for the extra time accordingly.


On the day of filming, I will also photograph a gallery of 15 still images of your branding/products/program (your choice) suitable for social media or website publication.


POST-PRODUCTION (where the magic happens)

 

After the session you will provide me with any still images to be used in the video, along with your logo file, and I will get started on the editing work. My turnaround time for brand films is 4-6 weeks from the date of the film session.  

Your final video product will be 2-3 minutes in length. Long enough to convey your message, yet short enough to keep your audience engaged and wanting more of you. You will receive two copies of your film once it is complete, one via Vimeo and the other via an external host. From there, you can upload the film to your own Vimeo and/or YouTube account, embed it on your website, and link to social media. I can help where necessary so that you can make the most of your video and reach your target audience. I will also share your video to my own business page (if desired) and blog about our experience.


This brand film experience includes the option to receive a <60 second highlight version of your film for Instagram (which has a 60 second video constraint) at no additional charge.
