Production Capabilities

We care about image quality. While not the exclusive factor of what makes a video successful, it is a distinguishing element of a professional video production. We primarily shoot on Sony cameras, including the newly released Sony FX6. We also utilize Panasonic professional camcorders, a Tricaster video switcher system, Vmix, and an assortment of professional audio and lighting equipment coupled with various camera rigging technology to ensure that our productions look great. For those interested in top tier footage from cinema cameras, we utilize those too when appropriate to do so. Our crew consists of a network of production professionals whose collective experience rivals the best in the industry.

In many of our videos, you’ll see artistic shots with smooth, cinematic movements. You’ll also see high dynamic range footage that captures close to what the human eye would naturally see, as well as cinematic depth of field to enhance focus on the intended subject.

Emphasis on Content

The reality is that there is no shortage of video content out there, not all of which gets attention regardless of its production quality. You can see cellphone videos go viral with large productions failing to break even on their production budget. The reason for this is exclusively because of the video’s content. Is the content targeted at a particular market? Does your viewing audience even care about what your video is saying? Do you have strong visuals to support the video’s dialogue? Is there a plan in place to get the content in front of people in the first place?

If a DFW video production company isn’t talking to you about these things at all, they’re doing you a disservice. We will always inquire about what your plan is after a video is produced as that can have implications about how (and how much) content is crafted.

Production Pricing

We go over factors that play into pricing on this page of our website more extensively. The long and short of it is, a baseline budget will be established with options to enhance your video further. To help clients make an informed decision, we go over the cost-benefit of these during consultation and have numerous blog articles that discuss these factors as well. The baseline budget of any video project always ensures that the essentials of a professional video are in place: properly lit video, clean audio, royalty-free background music, a motion graphic logo reveal, and at least some kind of supporting visuals.
