Telling stories big and small
Do you want to do some corporate storytelling? Or maybe you need a series of short & sharp social videos to drive customer growth.
I can work collaboratively with you to develop deliverables for TV, cinema, web, or social media as required with no surprise, hidden costs.
Making the most of one story
A corporate video doesn’t stand alone. We like to develop a suite of content with our partners so that the ultimate deliverable is not just one video that lives on YouTube but a strategy of communications across multiple outputs and formats.
"Thank you for shooting and editing the videos even better than I imagined"
Kerrie Hess, Australian Artist and Illustrator
What type of story are you telling?
I can help you produce content tailored to your objectives.
Pitches, stakeholder engagement, and reports
We’ll give you the best chance of the buy in you need with video. Whether you’re pitching for investment, unveiling a new initiative or reporting your company’s performance, a video can make a world of difference.
Has the CEO got a story to tell? Whether it’s going out to investors or the press, I’ll help them look good and represent the business in the best way. I’ll provide support all the way through the scripted, multi-camera shoot, so they have confidence in the message they’re delivering and in their delivery.
Spotlight a product or service
Sell more of what the world is needing with video. Sometimes, a web page just isn’t enough to capture what you can do for your customers. Help them see what’s possible and share the story in a format you can place on your website, your social feeds, and on the big screen.
Share a customer story
Make the most of the project that went really well or the customer who can’t stop raving about the difference you’ve made. I’ll help you tell their story in an engaging way so that others can see what you do and what you make possible.
Recruit the now generation
If you’re attracting gen Y or gen Z, you’re going to need video content to help them find out about and fall in love with your company.
Launch your product
When you’ve put so much work into making your product great, give it the best chance of success with a highly visual launch. To give you some idea of what might be possible, here’s how Gathar’s product launch played out.
Make an announcement
Ready to tell the world about something? I can help you craft the message into something that cuts through and gets the response you’re needing.
... Maybe you just need to make your first video
If you’ve never done a video before, we’ll guide you through the whole process, from strategy all the way to where you should publish the final product.
How I do what I do when I work for you, boo. xoxo.
If you've got an idea for a video, a campaign or a concept to bring to life, we’ll start by getting together to talk about (1) deliverable requirements and (2) the actual executable actions for turning that idea into a reality.
During our initial conversation, we’ll tackle questions like:
What are the types of videos that we're looking to make?
Who are they for?
How are they going to be produced?
Where are they going to be produced?
Where are they ultimately going to be delivered? Where are they going to live?
At the end of this phase you'll have quote options, delivery timeframes, and a schedule for production of your project. A 50% initialisation cpayment is required to commence.
This is when we'll capture all the components we need to produce your brief. We offer various types of production services, and they scale up in terms of crew, as per the requirements.
For example, if you need to do a music video with one person and a camera, we can do a music video with one person and a camera. If you want to do corporate communications, or a live streamed event, we will often need 2-5 crew to staff a production like that. Costs associated with those productions do scale accordingly.
Depending on the project, it could be interviews with various stakeholders, B roll on site with a customer to show them using your tool, technology or product. Or it could be webinars, live music or streaming.
Post-production varies from engagement to engagement, but post production usually involves conforming, archiving, colouring and mastering your content.
I take it from RAW, log format (the format that video is initially captured in), colour grade it so it all looks beautiful, correct all the audio so that everyone sounds great, and then mix and edit all that together into the deliverables agreed to in pre-production.
During post-production we will often provide an early look at content deliverables in an unfinished format for early feedback and revision. We’ll show you where it’s up to and what we’re thinking. This is to invite discussion on how we’ve incorporated your brand and the messaging so that the final content is just right.
Review and Delivery
Once all content has been finalised we'll provide digital download links to all content deliverables as discussed in pre-production. Physical media copies of all content may also be created at this time (if required).
This typically includes master videos, a series of 30 sec - 1min social videos, and some graphic heavy 10 - 15 sec highlights; as well as caption (.srt files) and versions with captions burned into the video (CAP).
You can have a look at the entire suite of content that we've started to put together before final sign off and delivery.
A completion payment of 50% is due at this stage.
Let's create something together
Create locally, broadcast globally
Take your content to the world with live streaming
Reinvent the webinar game
Bring back the stage. We can plug all of our existing technology and skills into enhancing your webinars.
With multi-camera coverage, slides, graphics, music, and video, you can run webinars via your platform of choice but with TV broadcast production quality.
In an age of webinar fatigue, this is a great way to revitalise and re-engage your audience, all on the same platforms your team and audience is used to.
Live stream your next corporate event
Put your next corporate event on the small screen by transforming an in-person event into a TV broadcast. I’ll provide a crew of 1-5 people to cover and produce all content.
We can currently live stream to all popular consumer platforms: FB, YT, Twitter, Twitch, IG, LI...or any other customer RCMP location, including services like Restream IO and Open Briefing.
What are your typical deliverables?
A list of deliverables will be confirmed during pre-production but deliverables will always include masters of all content as well as versions without music tracks so that the audio/video can be extracted and used in future. Other deliverables may include stills, social media edits, and captions (.srt)
All masters and key deliverables will be provided digitally via Dropbox or via upload to your own cloud storage. Physical copies can be arranged for an additional fee.
Do you do blooper reels?
The purpose of corporate communications is to put the business in the best light. Because of this and to preserve the safe space of the shoot, we do not do blooper reels.
Will there be a teleprompter?
I love a good teleprompter and we keep on in our kit for corporate communication because you never know when you’ll need one. Plus, when you have to deliver a set message, teleprompters can be an amazing tool.
If you’ve never used one before I’ll teach you the 101s before we start.
What happens if we need to reschedule the shoot?
During pre-production we'll usually identify a couple of flexible days alongside our shooting days in case we need to pickup any additional footage or if you have a last minute cancellation. I understand the world can be a bit crazy at the moment. I got you.
Will it just be you? Do you use subcontractors?
The business that we run (Lestrade Digital) takes pride in teaching younger producers the ins-and-outs of commercial video production.
As such I have a cohort of collaborators I call on when needed and will identify wether you need 1, 2, 13?!? producers to staff your shoot. Most jobs we do are 1-4 people.
Are you vaccinated?
We ensure every shoot is as COVID safe as possible. This means all of our producers are fully vaccinated and we disinfect equiptment between shoots. We will also comply with any and all requirements you or your organisation may have.
