SCRIPT AND STORYBOARD

The script dictates what the audience will see and hear.  It is the ‘blue print’ of your video. A storyboard is a series of drawings or photos which illustrate each scene in chronological order.  This helps you envisage how the video will look and it helps us plan each shot as we can see what is involved in each scene.

PRE-PRODUCTION

After we have received a completed Booking Form and a Purchase Order, Pre-Production commences. This involves the logistics and management of your project.  Each shoot day is thoroughly planned so we get the most out of your time and budget. We compile a shoot schedule so everyone involved knows what is happening, when and where?   A pre-production meeting allows all the stakeholders the opportunity to meet our production team and discuss the filming in detail.

VOICEOVER AND MUSIC

Once the script has been approved you can choose a suitable voiceover artist to narrate your story.  The voiceover track is then recorded in readiness for editing.  An appropriate piece of music is also chosen. As this is a subjective choice, we can direct you to several recommended music library web sites and then organise the license and purchase of your choice.

PRODUCTION

The filming usually involves at least two crew members and a car full of equipment!  More crew and equipment might be required depending on the complexity and scale of the project.  We aim to cause minimal disruption and execute the project quickly, efficiently and professionally.

FILE PROCESSING AND STORAGE

The ‘raw’ footage (digital files) are processed and securely backed up. They are then imported into the editing software together with the voiceover and music tracks.

EDITING

We create a ‘rough-cut’ edit combining all the chosen footage, voiceover and music as per the brief. We add titles, logos and contact details.  This is posted securely on line so all the stakeholders can view the video and feedback with any required changes.

DELIVERY OF YOUR FINAL VIDEO

Once we have made all the required changes we deliver the video in the file format required. We can make alternative versions of your video to reflect different viewing platforms such as social media, DVD’s or trade shows

FINDING THE RIGHT VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANY

DO YOU NEED SOME HELP? HERE IS A GUIDE ON HOW TO MAKE A VIDEO-FINDING THE RIGHT VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANY

You have written your video brief and now you need to find a video production company to make your video.  Well how do you find the right one? If you have no recommendations people tend to use Google, maybe searching for ‘video production companies’ or ‘video production’.  This will reveal lots of options listed on the first page. We tend to never venture on to the second page of searches as we consider these these options to be inferior. When in fact they may be better? It could be that they just don’t have enough budget to spend on Google Adwords or maybe their SEO is not perfected yet?

FINDING THE RIGHT VIDEO PRODUCTION COMPANY

How do know which one to choose? Cost? This is usually the deciding factor when choosing which video production company to commission.  Quotes can vary considerably for the same brief, why?  Well everyone has different overheads and pricing structures.  The main thing you need to be sure of is that your choice of video production company will deliver what you want, on time, on budget with a minimum of fuss. Ask questions! Before you commit make sure you are happy with the price, what you are getting for that price.

It is important to establish what you are getting for your money, and also what is not included. Don’t presume! Check! The most expensive quote may give you a lot more return on investment (ROI) than the cheaper quotes, so it may be worth paying a little extra.  Clients usually envisage that they will get just one finished video from a project but at Film Infinity we offer more than that.  It makes sense to utilise the vast library of footage you have at your disposal to create a variety of different edits to suit different purposes. A three minute video may be perfect to sit on your homepage and explain what you do or to document your latest project. Why not make shorter social media versions or a silent trade show version? A few simple editing changes can re-purpose your footage, ensuring a great ROI.

99% of the enquiries we receive come electronically. Rarely do we get a phone call asking us about our services. Unfortunately this removes the chance for us to chat with our clients about their project and discuss how we can help them.  This is not ideal but a common phenomenon in modern day business.  How do we address this? We created a simple, quick on line questionnaire that asks the relevant questions, allowing us to provide an estimate quickly and accurately. Please complete our VIDEO PROJECT BUILDER.

Once you have completed the answers we can then respond with some great ideas and ultimately submit an estimate of costs. Or call us on 0203 362 8288

When we receive a brief, we imagine what would be the most exciting way to execute the project. Not in excessive terms, but in a style and treatment that is sympathetic to the subject and achievable within budget.

Think about a voiceover and music, it may seem little early to be thinking about these, but they are key elements which will enhance your story.

We developed a series of pertinent questions that will help you shape your video project and enable us to understand your requirements.

HOW TO MAKE A VIDEO-WRITING A SCRIPT

DO YOU NEED SOME HELP? HERE IS A GUIDE ON HOW TO MAKE A VIDEO-WRITING A SCRIPT-

This is the second in a series of articles about commissioning video. A script dictates what the audience will see and hear.  It is the ‘blue print’ for your video.  A sentence of script usually accompanies a ‘matching’ piece of footage illustrating the spoken word.  Quite often we hear clients expressing dread at the thought of writing a script or they don’t know where to start.  Sometimes the content already exists in current marketing material such as brochures or on a web site.  This can be adapted to fit the video. We do offer a scriptwriting service, please call us on 0203 362 8288 if you need help with scriptwriting.

The simplest way to shape your video and envisage the end result is to create a spreadsheet. See this example SCRIPT. Add what you want to say and what you would like to see simultaneously on screen.  We can then have look and suggest some creative filming techniques or methods that will enhance your initial ideas and lay down the base of a successful video production.

We have added several other columns including Location, Animation, Title etc. These can also be completed, the more information and detail the better.  A pre-production meeting is always a good idea, this allows all the stakeholders the opportunity to meet our production team and discuss the filming in detail.  The script and shot list can be modified and ned at this stage.

Once the script has been approved by all the stakeholders it is time to chose a suitable voiceover artist to narrate your story. Male? Female? Age? Accent? The choice is yours and luckily there are hundreds, if not thousands of options. We can help you select the right on for you and organise the recording and production of the recording. The voiceover track is then recorded in readiness for editing.

We developed a series of pertinent questions that will help you shape your video project and enable us to understand your requirements.

We have incorporated these questions within our VIDEO PROJECT BUILDER. Once you have completed the answers we can then respond with some great ideas and ultimately submit an estimate of costs.

HEALTHCARE VIDEOS

DO YOU NEED SOME PRODUCING YOUR HEALTHCARE VIDEOS? Working within a medical environment requires care, diplomacy, tact and respect for patients and staff.  You have to be flexible and understanding, with the ability to read situations quickly, thinking on your feet and acting decisively. We listen to your ideas and take on board the ethos and culture of your organisation, incorporating these factors into the finished film.  We have a wealth of experience producing Healthcare videos.

It is important when producing a healthcare video that we work closely with all the staff involved.  Ideally we always like to visit the site before the shoot to reccy the hospital and introduce ourselves to the Doctors and Nurses that may feature in the videos.  This not only familiarises ourselves with the location but gives us a chance to put everyone at ease and answer any questions or concerns that the staff may have regarding the video production.

The cameras are relatively small and easy to manoeuvre enabling us to work quickly with a minimum amount of disturbance.  We aim to deliver stylish, punchy videos that strike the perfect balance between engaging your audience, and successfully communicating your story.  A dynamic, eye catching Healthcare video production, combined with the effective use of social networking sites and SEO will drive your message home. We listen to your ideas and take on board the ethos and culture of your organisation, incorporating these factors into the finished film.

Download our NHS Healthcare video case study which features our work we did for the Basildon & Thurrock University Hospital NHS Trust 

We made a suite of films for their Maternity Department. They wanted to replace the traditional tour currently conducted by Midwives with a video tour.  This would serve several purposes.  It would free up time, allowing the Midwives to do what they do best, deliver babies. It would also enable parents to take the tour at their convenience, and as many times as they wish in the comfort of their homes!!  And lastly all this would save everyone concerned time and money!

“Film Infinity were relaxed and easy to work with, and kept any disruption to a minimum. They were patient and understanding throughout the whole process. I was very happy with the result and would have no hesitation in recommending them to another NHS hospital.”

Jennie Ponting-Head of Midwifery & Gynaecology, Basildon & Thurrock University Hospital NHS Trust
