It may seem daunting when deciding to make a film, but there are 5 steps we follow to make the process as easy and trouble free as possible in all our productions which are detailed below:
Scripting is where the film is conceived and written down.
This is where budgeting, casting, location scouting, equipment and format selection, and storyboarding take place.
Production is where we create the footage bringing together all the elements used to tell your story. For practical reasons, scenes are usually shot out of order, which means they have to be properly arranged during Postproduction.
Postproduction is where we organize & assemble the production footage, putting the scenes in proper order and selecting the best takes. Sound is synchronized with the picture, footage is colour corrected where required and any special effects are created. The final film is output onto high quality DVD with any pre-arranged extras such as menus (static or motion), stills & photographs, Bios & lyrics.
Distribution is where you release the film for viewing either on the web (e.g. myspace, own website or YouTube), to send off as a demo to promote gig bookings or record label interest, sell at gigs and send off to music TV companies. The uses are only limited by your imagination.
