We say hello to get to know each other and to talk about what needs to be done. What are your communication challenges, opportunities and goals?
We put together a proposal for a film solution or develop your initial ideas. By producing initial images in a pre-visualisation accompanied by references and a budget we all get on the same page and make sure we have the same final film, at the right cost, in mind before we start.
You push the button and we GO. Planning and organising everything that is needed for an animation or a shoot. Before we move to the next stage we get together in a pre-production meeting where you can review choices made or select an option where such are presented. Any further questions? Now is the time to ask.
And…..”ACTION”. Everything we’ve dreamt up will be realised either through an animation or live-action shoot, or perhaps a combination of the two. In animation you get to see an animatic where we look at composition, timing and content. In live-action we have an off-line meeting where all the best material from the shoot has been put together in a rough-cut for your review. Initial music or sound ideas are presented. Once you’re satisfied we lock it down.
Final touches (though still a ton of work :) Colors, effects, music are all made just right. Once your feedback is incorporated we meet for an on-line session where you get to enjoy the final result. Once you’re happy to approve the masterfiles we begin adapting them for broadcast, print, stream, post or screening.
