2. HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK
Before the shoot
My creative process begins from the moment we meet.
We will talk via e-mail/phone call/Skype or in person meeting so that I can wrap my head around who you are, what you are working on, why you are doing it, and how I can best share that in a video.
It’s important that you let me know what’s sensitive or time critical. If there’s something that can’t be seen until after a specific date or something that should’nt be shared publicly, it is important for me to know.
There might be a follow up brainstorm meeting.
Next we will book in the shoot! Ideally before the first shoot day you will have sent me any supporting materials that are to be included in your videos, such as logos, branding guides, text etc…
Shoot day is pretty relaxed. We’ll meet at the arranged location and I’ll figure out what makes sense on the day.
Editing – or as I like to call it…the magic suite.
Once all the footage is “in the can” the first thing I’ll do is pick the music or music tracks to fit the project from my extensive Royalty Free music library. I’ll then edit the video to work with the music. This means changing the music afterwards really puts a spanner in the works, so do let me know if you have a sound in mind before we start filming.
Sometimes I get super excited while I’m editing and will share a behind the scenes photo or rough video clip on my Facebook business page. If you have any concerns please let me know before hand and we can discuss.
I normally edit pretty fast, you’ll often get a first draft within 48 hours, but always within a week.
The draft will be provided via a private Vimeo link. This is your chance to give feedback and suggest changes. The faster you can get feedback to me the better, but please no longer than 7 days.
I’ll make a second draft based on your suggestions as part of the package and send another Vimeo link. If you want additional changes after the second draft, I’ll charge you my normal hourly rate.
Once we’re agreed and you love the video (hopefully), I’ll provide the finished video via a private Vimeo link. You can download the video at full quality for distribution and storage.
You can share directly from the private Vimeo link, but be aware that it will be branded for Soulhaven and sometimes things can change in the backend. Our recommendation is that you download and upload it to your own social media and share from there. We can offer advice on how to do this.
