We live in a world of moving images and sometimes text and design just aren’t enough to tell your story. Video is a powerful tool for human connection and it’s one of our favorite ways to communicate. We can make organizational videos that explain what you do as well as public service announcements, event videos, trailers, interviews and more! We specialize in all stages of production from developing a concept to shooting and editing and even composing original music for the soundtrack, all using industry-standard software (Final Cut Pro, GarageBand, DVD Studio Pro). We can also design credits, animations and other graphics for your documentary or other film project.
Once your video is ready to be shared with the world, we can put it on your website and on social networks (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc.). We also do DVD design, authoring and packaging including interactive menus and special features like embedding PDF files onto the DVD.
