WORKSHOPS

In support of our goals to help bring high quality production access to companies of all sizes, we realised that does not mean we have to film or edit everything for clients. There had to be another way that we can help empower clients so that could leverage the huge upsides of video marketing content, without breaking the bank.

So essentially we came up with some workshops where we teach clients how do to their own basic videos or photos that are still quality and allows them to post content regularly and consistently while cutting their production budgets down substantially. 

Where clients are comfortable to film but still do not want to edit, we again excel with our portfolio of services by offering editing services that will help take the pressure of you. Not to mention your videos will then still get well branded which gives it that professional touch with motion graphics and titles while conforming to your brands identity.

Here are some of the workshops we offer:

  • Building a Social Media Content Strategy
  • Filming Basics With A Smartphone
  • Photo Basics With A Smartphone
  • Advanced Lighting Setup for Interviews
  • Help You Design And Build Your Filming Set, includes camera placements and lighting rig setup/layouts.
