Video Production Process
Every video production is different. That’s why it’s important to have a video production process in place to ensure that both the client and the content creator are getting what they need when they need it in order to make sure the video production runs as smoothly as possible. We may not follow these steps to the letter with every project, but in general here are the 8 steps Other Vision Studios follows to make sure your video production is successful.
1. Meet and Greet
We’re about to start a relationship around a single project that’s probably going to last two months or more. Before we put pen to paper on a contract we want to make sure we’re a good fit. We’ll take you to our favorite coffee shop (or meet at your location if you prefer), and discuss your business, your goals, and what ideas you have for your video. You can also ask us anything you’d like. If at the end of this meeting we both agree that we’d like to move forward we’ll go on to step two.
2. The Proposal
Sometimes we come out of the Meet and Greet process knowing exactly what we’re going to do. If you have a clear idea and we latch onto your vision then we can fast track the entire process. If not, we might need to pitch a few ideas your way and see if any of them stick. We’ll take a week process what came out from your meeting and come up with a few concepts, investigate how much it will cost to produce them and present it to you either in a follow-up meeting.
3. The Contract
Once we have an approved concept, we’ll write out the contract. This will come as two documents. First the Master Services Agreement, which basically outlines the legal side of the document and only needs to be signed once and will cover the first and all subsequent projects we do for you. Then a Work Order that outlines the of the project, the cost of the project and the duration of the project. Once we have both signed you are officially our client and we will begin work on your video.
All the work we’ve put in comes down to this. It could only be an hour of studio time, it could be a full day, or it could be several weeks on location. No matter how long or short the production period is, we’ll be bringing all our creative energies to the table to make sure we capture the best video possible for you.
Depending on how long your video is, and how much post work needs to go into it, this could last from a few days to a full month or more. Generally, we aim to have a rough cut of your video to you within two weeks and then a final cut to you a week after you’ve made your request for revisions.
Once the video has been approved, and we’ve received final payment, the video is yours to use however you see fit. Generally, we’ll send you a link to download the video, but if you need it delivered in a different way, we’re happy to accommodate.
The contract may be expired, the project completed, but we want to ensure that you’re getting the most out of the video. In the following weeks we’ll be in touch to make sure everything is working fine with the video, and see if you have any questions for us. Of course, at any time you can give us a call and shoot us an e-mail and we’ll be happy to work with you to make sure the video is reaching your audience and giving you the results you expect.
