WE’D LIKE TO HIRE YOU OVER THE NEXT FEW SEASONS TO CREATE A FRESH IMAGE LIBRARY FOR OUR BRAND. DO YOU WORK ON LONG-TERM ASSIGNENTS?

What are your rates?

Clients come to us at all stages of creative development — some are equipped with a plethora of brand assets while others are just getting started. Working with our studio is typically broken into three main phases: (1) Pre-Production & Planning, (2) Production and (3) Post-Production. Our easy-to-calculate Rate Sheet makes planning and developing smart, reliable budgets a cinch— no matter which stage of creative development you're in.  We itemize the cost of every phase so that you know exactly where your budget is going.

Our top-rated aircraft systems fly with cameras able to capture breathtaking shots with beautiful dynamic range. While on-site, we provide clients with the option of previewing flights through a view-only remote — a great way to provide any feedback that you may have while we're in flight.

Do you ONLY WORK WITH PROFESSIONAL ACTORS?

We work with a number of professional actors but most of the time our subjects are real people that have zero acting experience — but also have interesting stories to tell. While working professional actors makes it easy to get shots quickly, there's nothing we love more than interviewing someone that has little to no experience of being in front of the camera — sometimes the best stories are completely unscripted!

 

What editing software do you use FOR POST-PRODUCTION?

We use the latest and most up-to-date versions of Adobe Creative Cloud.
