An idea.

Yes, really. That’s it!

We guarantee that all you need to end up with a wonderful end product from our team is an idea. It’s our job – and our passion! – to help you with the rest.

We also recognize that being prepared and curious about how our process works is what brought you here. And we’re happy to oblige…

The questions below are similar to what our team will ask you during your project kickoff call. Our tried and true kick-off call is the first step in our award-winning process – which you can read a bit more about here.

Thinking about these questions can be a good way to prepare for kickoff with us, or even get inspired if you’re still working on your idea.

All systems go?

What action do you hope people will take after they watch your video?

What is your brand voice? What is the tone of your message?

Are you open to using humor to get your point across? Is there room in your video for authenticity that will make people chuckle?

Where will you be sharing this video? Hint: where is your audience most likely to see it?

What are the pain points of your target audience? What problem are you solving for them?

Which members of your team should be consulted at progress points, for approval and feedback?

Who is the audience for this video? Do they know anything about this topic? What are their lives like, what do they
care about, what keeps them up at night?

Who on your team will be the primary point of contact?

Do these questions feel like a lot to think about? Don’t worry.

Our producers are truly experts at walking clients through the process and working together to create a perfect video. These just give you a taste of all the pit-stops we’ll make on your journey to a fantastic end result.
