Supposedly for every minute you spend planning you save 10 minutes in execution. In video production it is very true. And it’s not just time saved, it’s money too. Good planning prevents costly mistakes and wasted time. We strive to always be good stewards of our clients investment and that means getting everything just right before we roll camera on the first shot. We will be there to walk you through the process – blue sky, outlining, scripts, shotlists, storyboards, comp frames and whatever it takes to crystalize the vision and set up the project up for success. We work hard to establish the story in pre-production, laying down a foundation that will carry us through the entire process. It’s important to get to know the client, understand the project and peel back the layers to get to the core story that needs telling. We love pre-production because we have the chance to pull something out of thin air, to sculpt a story and design a compelling experience for the viewer.
Since we founded Studio Say So in 2008 we have had the chance to shoot a great variety of videos. We’ve shot documentaries in Africa and Central America, 4 camera studio shoots and high end commercial productions. We are proud of our ability to scale up to a full whiz-bang studio team or scale way down to an intimate documentary crew. We have lots of field experience on a wide range of gear and we pick the right camera for the job, never force-feeding the client technology they don’t need but also never compromising production with equipment that won’t do the job. Our commitment to storytelling carries through to production, where we execute our well-laid plans but are also agile enough to change on the fly and ready to capture those special moments and happy accidents. We have experience working with actors (experienced and not), locations (from jungle floors to brain surgery suites) and the ever-changing elements (we live in Florida after all). Our experience allows us to work through all the details so we can focus on the direction and cinematography to make your story beautiful and dynamic.
After the diligent work of pre and the fast paced action of production, all the elements of the story finally come together in post. And luckily for you (and us, we like to stay busy) post is actually where we have the most experience. With well over 10 years cutting projects, we hone down each video until we (you, the exacting client and us, the creatives with a vision) are totally happy. Our review process keeps the client in the loop until we get to that magical finished product. We edit and color grade in house, but when the project calls for motion graphics, precision audio mixing, and animation we collaborate with best in field talent to make sure each video gets exactly what it needs. And we are happy to deliver your final beautiful HD video in whatever format you need.
