creative development

Every great film, music video, and commercial starts at the same place: with the seed of a good idea. But what’s astounding is wondering what the world would look like without these game-changing creative struggles. We would join you in taking a cool hypothetical and morphing it into an actionable, kick-ass concept. And together we will sharpen those ideas, poke holes in them, reconfigure them when needed, and mold them into the perfect product.

storyboarding

Create detailed panels or storyboards-in-motion will help pin-point each scene stakes. Further translating your shot list into a storyboard adds a level of detail that makes your shoot that much more efficient. And when a little extra zing in pre-production visuals is relevant, we will transform pre-drawn or pre-rendered storyboards into animatics. By including a bit of motion—and usually a scratch voice track—the in-edit flow of a scene is easy to see.

scouting

We might all agree that there are some “vibes” we can pick up from certain people and certain location. There is a symbiotic relationship that always exists between actors being casted and the locations that fit them. Neither exists without the other, and when a movie goes down in cinema history, it’s both of them that will be remembered. Having the right cast and location for your production and your narrative will feel life-like. Finding them doesn’t have to be a huge to do, however.

production design

Seamless production design is often the first thing working to pull an audience into a film and keep them there. At your side making a large number of decisions, along with your director, that dictate what the audience sees.  Each carefully chosen item might only be captured in passing. But as they work together to create a single visual landscape, they perform the crucial task of making the film’s world believable. We work alongside directors, producers, cinematographers, and the entire art department to build, as far as the audience is concerned, an entire world.
