the PROCESS

the PROCESS

The video production process can be a confusing one, so SkipperFilms makes it a point to help our clients navigate from start to finish, idea to film completion, so your corporate, personal or business video can be a successful and profitable experience for you! To give you an idea of what it takes to get from a vision to a visual, check out our typical video production process:

the KICKOFF

It all starts with an idea, a vision. Here at SkipperFilms, we always offer Free Consultations so you can get to know us, our process, and we can learn about what your vision is for the project. This is a vital step for our discovery process, and will be the foundation of our working relationship.

Real meetings, with real faces, and real voices are a great way to recognize your brand voice and company personality, while brainstorming some initial ideas for successfully executing your vision.

the DISCOVERY

Typically a part of the KICKOFF, the DISCOVERY process is something that is often overlooked by other companies. However, we at SkipperFilms are able to identify it as a key asset in developing something so unique and customized to your business. Through conversation, questioning, brainstorming, and review, we can successfully identify what style of video, what market it targets, the length, and ultimately the investment required to fulfill all of your needs.

the CONCEPT

Conceptualization is something we just know. Through working with hundreds of clients, we've really fine-tuned what proven success looks like in Video Production. Taking the ideas put forth in the KICKOFF and the DISCOVERY, we put the pen to paper and build-out our scenes, shot lists, plans, and equipment needs to prepare for our shoot. 

After everything is approved, we open up our day planners (or whatever you kids use these days) and schedule your shoot. It's all magic from here on out!

the CREATION

Once we have our plans, shotlists, and storyboards in order, SkipperFilms will take your vision and put it in front of our cameras. Using the latest camera techniques and technology with the first and only Standard 4K Video Production in the area, and knowledge of the latest marketing trends and concepts, you can rest assured that your project is safe in our capable hands!

You'll never pay line-item pricing for equipment. We own our drones, jibs, tripods, gimbals, cameras, lenses, and professional audio equipment already, so we offer package pricing that covers our artistic service and labor, while meeting most budgets.

the POST

Shooting your film is only half the battle! Once we "call it a wrap" on production, our editors piece it together, color correct the footage, create a customized graphics suite to fit within your branding, create bumpers or logo animations to open and close the film, and everything else is needed to make this film 100% uniquely yours. We call it polish, but you can just call it magic.

the REVIEW

Getting approval on the first draft is like sinking a hole in one. It happens, but we all understand that our minds are only capable of aligning so far without review and critique! SkipperFilms utilizes a 3-step process to making sure our visions align as much as humanly possible, so you can have a hand in making sure this video or advertisement will be nothing but a success in your industry. 

Step 1: Rough Cut. Let's knock out the big changes first. Sometimes this means adjusting the structure, swapping out clips or takes, etc. 

Step 2: Fine Cut. Time to get nit-picky. Let us know your wishlist of how to reach perfection.

Step 3: Final Cut. All changes are implemented to their fullest extent. Graphics and branding are inserted, color correction is enabled, and we have ourselves a film!

the DELIVERABLE

What good is a beautifully mastered film or promotional video without the distribution to back it up? We'll deliver the full-resolution files, and can help you upload, share, and promote your latest project with our experience in marketing and social media. Feel free to pick our brains about how to successfully implement your video advertisement on your desired platform. 

New to all of this? We can even create your YouTube page, upload the video, and pass ownership back to you when we're done. We're "full service" people over here.
