Don’t have the whole idea planned out yet? That is what the creative journey is all about and one of the things we love to do.
Our team fulfills the following expert roles:
THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR
The creative director is responsible for the creative concept development of an end product – for figuring out the best way to visually represent what needs to be communicated.
The photographer, or should I say, the professional photographer (excluding but not limited to every photographic enthusiast that owns a professional camera) takes photographs. Professionally.
THE SOUND DESIGNER
The sound designer works creatively with the various audio elements (voice over, foley, music, dialogue, etc.) to produce the backtrack for the video.
The editor acts as a refinery. He/she manipulates and rearranges the original footage in order to create a flow and tell a story.
THE MOTION GRAPHICS ARTIST
The motion graphics artist works with various 2D and 3D elements, and animates them in order to communicate certain concepts. Think of it as graphic design in motion.
The director makes the concept come to life! He/she works with the various elements (technical, creative, production, etc.) in order to translate the concept into picture and sound that tells a story.
THE CAMERA OPERATOR
The camera operator works with various cameras in multi- and single-camera operational conditions, producing pictures for directors by combining the use of complex technology with creative visual skills.
THE SOUND ENGINEER
The sound engineer is responsible for recording all sound during filming. He/she works with various microphones & recording devices in order to capture the various audio elements.
The producer leans to the business side of things. He/she is responsible for the overall quality control of productions within a given budget.
THE DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
The director of photography, a.k.a. the DOP, knows all about equipment. He/she knows exactly what to use and where to position it in order to achieve the desired visual outcome.
A copywriter, in the film environment, writes the text for the video (eg. dialogue between characters, voice over scripts, etc.).
THE GRAPHIC DESIGNER
The graphic designer visually communicates ideas & concepts by means of graphic and text elements.
The colorist digitally enhances (grades) the picture by means of high-end software in order to achieve a specific look, or to fix color imbalances between various cameras.
