Determine the parameters of the project. Who is the audience? What is your timetable and deadline? Define final deliverables and expectations. Present a proposal to the client. Finalize a budget. Green light the project.
Collaborate with the client. Develop the concept and creative approach. Solidify the idea and message. Write an outline, treatment or script. Revise and refine the concept before we ever roll cameras.
Any successful video production begins with a solid blueprint and planning to build upon. The most important stage of any project is pre-production planning. Scout, clear and schedule locations. Audition and cast talent. Acquire necessary props and wardrobe. Book the crew and prep the production gear.
Let’s roll. Direct and shoot video. Record audio. Initiate motion graphics for post. We have literally shot and produced videos on every continent except Antarctica. With a worldwide portfolio of production experience we bring our passion and expertise to every job.
With solid pre-production and production, we should not have to “fix it in post”, but we will certainly enhance and bring to life the final product. The key is rock solid technical staff combined with editors with a vision. We operate multiple in-house edit suites and support bays. A big advantage for our clients is a real investment by Outpost in post-production media asset management and shared media storage. This allows for efficient revisions and updates to projects months and even years down the road.
Upon final approval from the client we prep the video for delivery. Determine proper file codec for web, broadcast, mobile or other delivery platforms. Archive the finished video on Vimeo for easy client access. Per client request archive and store all media assets for the project at Outpost Worldwide, or deliver all digital assets to the client on an external hard drive.
Video production budgets are determined based on time and materials to execute the project. All professional services such as producing, filming, audio services, and more are based on hourly or daily rates. Other details that impact budget are talent options, props, wardrobe, potential location fees, travel and more. We do not begin any project without a clear confirmation of project parameters and a line-item budget outlining specific details.
After discussing the details of your project with one of our project producers, we will put together a formal proposal for your team to review.
We do have animation services! Much like our production process, the workflow and cost will be determined once you speak with a producer to decide the needs of your project.
Our production office is located in the Crossroads district of Kansas City. Although we do not have a traditional sound-stage, we do have a large space that houses a 12' x 12' green screen that can service many different needs. In addition to our large space, we do have a traditional sound booth at your disposal to record flawless audio.
Videos are typically delivered via a file sharing program. We can email a link to download or place your video on a drive for final delivery.
Project timelines can vary based on the complexity and scale of the project. We work closely with you to establish realistic timelines that meet your requirements.
