What type of video do you need?
Videos are often a need for corporations and non-profit organizations alike. From a documentary-type overview, to in-the-field training or step- by-step, hands on instruction, video works.
Overview and Profile videos
Long-form profile videos are great for recruitment and really "telling the story" of your corporate culture. We have years of experience shooting non-professionals on camera and are experts at making them feel at ease. TelePrompters are an option for extensive on-camera dialogue.
Testimonial and Fundraising Videos
Filming videos to include on your website that feature your actual clients or customers talking about your products and services is a very strong addition to your marketing efforts. Studies have shown that customers interact longer with websites that include video and fundraising with video raises 114% more than written pleas. Kickstarter and other crowdfunding sites really benefit from a strong video as part of the story.
Training and Marketing VideosUnlike in-person meetings, a video can travel for you and be viewed again and again. Make your technical manual "come to life", and reduce the number of calls to your tech support lines! Section titles and music are used to tie the production together. Illustrative shots are incorporated throughout the production to show detail. Graphics outline key thoughts and review other important points. Opening and closing titles and music set the mood for the program. Let us help you concept and write the script for your next project!
Web videos have exploded in recent years and are an effective way to take your message directly to your audience. We can help you concept, script, shoot and encode your video into any web format you need (YouTube, MP4, H.264, Flash, WMV, etc.) Whether you are presenting an overview of your firm or providing training or other information, your website and other social media sites are an important platform to showcase your company.
Conference, Seminar and Meeting Videos
From multi-day conferences to smaller meetings and educational seminars, we've helped clients from all over the world capture important content. Seminar and meeting videos are often shot on-site in a classroom style or theater environment. Powerpoint presentations, and other multimedia are typically used to support the discussion. Single or multiple cameras can be used to provide the desired coverage. Independent Media can provide full video, lighting and audio support for seminars, including microphones for the speakers. We can also convert your presentation to a digital format for editing. We have years of experience making sure the audio and video of your meeting is handled properly, and the final movie represents your company in a professional way.
Documentary Style Videos
By combining interviews, still photos, narration, and insightful illustrative footage, the documentary approach can "tell the story " in a familiar and time-honored fashion. Social cause initiatives, companies, and non-profit groups all have a story to tell. The production techniques that weave together a tapestry of images and sounds can result in entertaining and informative programs for broadcast television or the internet. Our production company's roots began in broadcast TV, with experience in location videography, focused interviews, and a script-writing technique that combines all of the elements. The addition of a professional voice talent, to get every nuance of the script, is another aspect of a documentary-style program that is often overlooked.
Multi-camera coverage of special events like conferences, theatre productions, competitions, dance productions and live music can be professionally edited to best capture the spirit of the event. We are experts at event coverage, and have many happy clients who use us year after year! Event videos can be put online for training, information, morale boosting, etc. Award ceremonies, sales incentive trips, annual shareholder meetings are great examples. Reinforce your goals and achievements by filming your next function.
Trade show video production
Selling face-to-face at trade shows is a unique marketing opportunity, and can benefit greatly from expert video production. Showing a professional video of testimonials, product demonstrations and more is an engaging, information-rich way to get people's attention. Play your video on flat-screen HD displays in HD format, and your message will be seen from across the show floor. Or film in your booth while all of your key personnel, customers and demos are in one place.
Location and studio videography is often used to capture the intended look and feel of the client's concept. Digital non-linear editing allows you to quickly and easily make changes to ensure the message comes through loud and clear — all in time to meet your air deadlines!
Broadcast, sports, live events and television production
Program production includes 20 years experience in all phases of the creative process for entertainment shows, sports shows, and documentaries for broadcast and cable networks.
We can write, shoot, edit and produce any length of program that will meet or exceed broadcast specifications. Whether you need a crew "on the ground" to shoot and hand off footage, fast editing, or a complete production, give us a call!
Construction video production
We have extensive experience in providing construction site coverage for training and documentation purposes. Our HD cameras can go anywhere inside or outside the building, while capturing relevant audio with a wireless microphone attached to the presenter. For low-light level situations, we utilize battery-powered LED lights. Video surveying of sites is a valuable tool for recording the condition of structures during and after development.
