“Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.
If you’re not sure what kind of video you want, we’ll help you with your ideas and objectives to create the best video for your specific needs and budget. You might simply say to us “I need a video,” and that’s it. Or you might give us a clear, prescriptive brief with challenging requirements. Either way, we’ll embrace your initial thoughts and fly with them.
Whatever style of video you decide you would like, the steps we follow will be very similar. We have been doing this for 12 years now, so we are pretty confident that our processes are fully refined. Whats more, a Dragonfly can change direction without loosing speed! So if we do need to zip off in a different direction, we will waste no time about it!
Planning is paramount. We take the time to understand your requirements, get to know your audience, analyse the competition and maximise your budget. Together, we will refine ideas, clarify outcomes and goals, agree objectives, develop and refine ideas. This first step is our ‘discovery phase’, your creative consultation
This is the most critical part of the process and a dedicated Producer is assigned to you from the outset, to ensure consistency throughout the making of your video. The majority of the production efforts goes into planning and design. Once we have the idea set, making your video is the easy part!
We manage the entire design process from beginning to end. This may include script development, storyboarding, filming, animating and editing. We have a consultative approach and are responsive; offering advice on style, strength of narrative, how to get the message across effectively and how best to connect with the audience. If needs be, like dragonflies, we can quickly change direction without losing speed!
Dragonfly are very well known for snappy edits and high production value. Our team are the best in the industry when it comes to efficient video editing, punchy colour grading, attention grabbing sound effects and hypnotic animated words on screen.
We don’t charge per hour or day; we work to your budget. Most projects are signed off on the second edit review, meaning time and money is saved.
Once the video has been made, we’ll ensure it plays effortlessly on all modern devices and it works seamlessly on social media. As much as possible, we’ll make sure that 100% of your target audience watches your video by optimising your market reach. You can expect a smooth process and clear communication from us throughout – resulting in a video that gets noticed and gets results.
It’s one thing getting a video made, it’s another thing getting people to sit down and watch it! Running campaigns from conception to delivery we can optimise your market reach, ensuring your production finds the right eyes!
From start to finish, your video could take one week to make or eight weeks. It depends on the kind of video you want us to produce. On average we spend six weeks working on each video which we create – however the production schedule can be sped up, should here be a looming deadline.
