Corporate Video Production Process
If you’re this far down the page we assume you’re interested in C47 Film’s corporate video production services and looking to better understand how to start the process.
Step 1: Free Consultation – We’ll talk with you to discover your initial need and discuss very early ideas.
Step 2: C47 Films will share a proposal with you for your review and signature. We’re about partnership so, if you have ideas and changes on our proposal let’s talk.
Step 3: Enter the 5 phases of production
Phase 1: Development
This is a phase that does not have to be very long, but in some case our clients need help digging to understand their audience better. We have a proprietary onboarding process where we can help our clients define their ideal customer and help our team know, deeply, who we’re writing for.
Phase 2: Pre-Production
In this phase we will write the script, gain approvals, find locations (including booking studio time), book talent – perhaps it’s your team, but it could be actors or clients – and we’ll prepare in general for our video shoot. Note that often we’re interviewing people so scripts at this point are likely “interview scripts” that help us assure we’re getting the best answers from our interviewees.
Phase 3: Production
Ahhh, Lights Camera Action. This is the stuff we know you’re expecting. On big productions it may be a large crew and look very much like what a movie set can look like. On most, it’s a small crew from our company doing a very professional job on your behalf.
Phase 4: Post-Production
Our editing staff will handle backing up your files, editing your video, adding graphics, finding music and booking voice over talent when needed. Your involvement in Pre-Production has set us up for a great post-production because we know what results we’re looking for in the edit. We do involve you for reviews, and we guide in that process too, but you shouldn’t have much to do at this point.
Phase 5: Distribution
Often times distribution is as simple as us sending our client the final video. If you’re showing the video in a trade show booth, that’s distribution. Many times, though, distribution requires careful planning and execution. We know this well in advance because we set our intentions during Development. Just know, that when you need a guide and a practitioner of distribution we’re here to do that for you.
