If I'm beginning to look like the right fit for you, here's a broad breakdown of how I work and what to expect.
Let's meet! I'll need to understand your business, your brand, your market, your ambitions and...you!
Treatment. I'll come up with an outline treatment based on our discussions. This will be like a paper edit: an idea of the shots, interviews, structure, music and graphics so you can visualise what you ultimately can expect.
Treatment revision. I'll rework your comments into the outline until you're happy.
Schedule. We'll work on a schedule for the shoot, identifying the busiest days, the sunniest days or the most representative days in order to shoot the best of you and your business.
Any other admin. Need a risk assessment or a release form? I'm your man!
Action! I tend to use two or three cameras on a shoot for different purposes (General Views, Timelapse, interviews, 'pretties', SteadiCam). I'm discreet and mindful, assertive and polite, and flexible enough to turn on a sixpence!
Branding. You have precious branding and guidelines that I'll make sure I stick to.
First cut. I'll send you a 2 or 3 minute initial edit, containing all the elements from the treatment.
Comments? Want to get rid of an interview sentence or replace a shot? Now's the time to feedback.
Final master edit. I'll give you a final master edit incorporating everything we've created together..
Other cuts. Using Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or Facebook? I'll cut to the right length and format so that you can still show yourself off online.
Other tools. I'll then give you any web headers or GIFs that you need.
Consultancy. I'm right here at the end of the phone for any tech or marketing advice. Value-added alert!
