Planning a Film

Often overlooked, pre-production is critical to ensuring that your video project and shoot days are successful. Taking the appropriate amount of time to plan properly will save time and money during the entire lifecycle of the video. This process begins with defining who your ideal traveler is so that you can craft a story that will resonate with them. From there we will cover all aspects of pre-production from scripts, shot lists and storyboards to budgets and logistics specific to adventure travel. The final result will be a complete roadmap for your video project, from concept to production to distribution.

Editing a Film

Post-production is where the magic happens, bringing your video project to life. Much like the previous two phases, your chances of success are greatly improved with planning. This starts with a clear and organized digital asset management plan. From there we will cover editing styles and techniques that will help amplify your adventure video along with the importance of getting your audio just right. There will be times that you will have gaps in your production to fill and we will discuss cost effective ways to fill them. This section is not a tutorial on editing but more about developing an understanding of everything that goes into the post-production process so that you can help ensure your video is conveying the message that will motivate your audience. It also will address crucial questions about how to edit for various distribution options online.

Distributing a Film

Once the final edit is complete the real fun begins - getting your video out there for the world to see. Too often this phase is not prioritized and video views fall flat. You are doing all your hard work a huge disservice if your video is not optimized for the platform you are distributing it on.  We will provide a detailed breakdown of all the current platforms (YouTube, Facebook, etc.) and how best to optimize video for them, including the importance of paid promotion. Each social platform has an option to target your ideal traveler and float your video in-front of them. This section will also cover outreach through film festivals, PR and traditional media, and ways to extend the life of your video footage through recycling.
