Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does video production cost?

    Well, “it depends.” We price video production services on a project-by-project basis, which takes into consideration several key factors, such as project scope, complexity, and delivery timeline.

    We often hear of client companies that may not have significant budget allocations for video production and are hesitant to reach out. If you let us know what your budget is going into a video production project, we will try to find the right blend of services that will meet your needs within your budget. Just remember the old adage, “Fast, cheap, good – you can only choose two.”

    It all starts with a conversation. Give us a call at 614-538-1622 or hit the Contact form to start the ball rolling.

  • Do you accept RFPs for competitive bid?

    No. Our experience with competitive bidding for video production services has been counterproductive. It prevents open collaboration and proper project planning from the very beginning. Therefore, we only provide proposals after we have personally met with you and have a proper understanding of your needs and goals.

  • Do you conduct traditional or digital marketing campaigns?

    No. While we craft media content to be used in marketing campaigns, we are not a marketing firm or advertising agency and do not conduct or orchestrate any traditional or digital marketing campaigns (i.e. TV spot distribution, search engine pay-per-click ads, or site banner ads). We also do not manage any social media accounts or facilitate any devious "online targeting" schemes.

    We welcome partnering with ad agencies and marketing firms who are looking for innovative, budget-conscience video production and photo/graphic services..

  • Can you work under an NDA?

    Yes, we routinely work with clients under NDA, recognizing their proprietary IP. Our standard working agreement includes NDA language between both parties.

  • Do I have to provide my own script?

    You can if you like, but we are a full-service video production company, providing all phases of video production including writing. Writing for video is a lot different than writing for print, so even if you provide a draft, we can optimize it for the screen.

  • Do you use AI?

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is invading the video production world, but we take a balanced approach. While our cameras and editing systems use specialized AI to track focus, improve resolution and otherwise enhance image and sound quality, we normally do not use AI to generate content from scratch. AI can help with human creativity, but it should never be considered as a replacement.

  • Can you provide standalone video acquisition or editing services?

    Absolutely! As a full-service video production company, we can provide individual production components a la carte. We can capture footage in high-resolution professional formats for you to edit, or we can edit footage you provide.  We can shoot multi-camera video in the field or a studio environment, and we can work in-person or online.  

  • Do you provide aerial video and photo services?

    Yes. Our experienced drone pilot maintains the required FAA Part 107 license so our aerial video footage and images can be commercially used. Our aircraft is capable of 5.1K video and 20MP stills. (The FAA limits the area in which we can fly. Be sure to mention the site location when contacting us.)

  • Can you accomodate archival footage from tape or film formats?

    Yes! We can digitize and include most types of slides, photos, videotape and 16mm/8mm/Super 8 film in your video project. We support most consumer and professional analog formats. See our capabilities at www.adventdigitizing.com

  • Can you do time-lapse photography or videography?

    Yes. We have many techniques for capturing time-lapse footage, depending on what you’d like to capture and how long you want it to progress.

  • What is the difference between Documentary, Narrative, Promotional and Instructional video?

    Documentary Videos are “reality” based, and document an event, a person, a company, a product or an idea. Documentary has a wide variety of styles, ranging from narrated graphics or “b-roll” (wild or stock) footage, to interviews, reenactments, or music-video style montages. Documentaries may be scripted (written in advance), or unscripted – driven by events that are filmed or open-ended interviews with people (our specialty).

    Narrative videos are story-based, like feature films or TV dramas. They feature actors playing fictional (or real) characters in situations dreamed up by writers. Often used for entertainment, the narrative approach can be used to promote or instruct, or to reinact historical events.

    Promotional videos can be documentary or narrative films that have a purpose to promote a product, company or idea. Sales videos, explainer videos and commercials all have one goal, to help customers make the decision to trust the sponsor and buy their product or service.

    Explainer videos are short promotional videos that show how to do a task, or how something works. Explainers are a cross between a promotional video and an instructional one, and often give ste-by-step instructions on how to use a product or perform a task. YouTube is filled with amateur explainer videos, professional ones like we make are quck, clean, concise.

    Instructional videos are a type of documentary intended to teach. Instructional videos are longer forms of Explainer videos that expand beyond just the 
    "how-to" of a task, developing rationale or exploring history. Instructional videos can be led by an instructor, or be script-based illustrated narrations.

    You can view some of these styles on our Success Stories page.

  • What is your approach to video production?

    Like any video producer, we have our style. Our roots are in the multi-image slide show era, where we could not use talking heads, so our approach in writing and filming documentary, promotional and instructional videos is to “illustrate, illustrate, illustrate.” We try to use examples, graphics, and video images of what people or the narrator are talking about as much as possible. The key thing we always ask is “what is the single most important IMPRESSION the client wants the audience to have?” That’s because Rule #1 in video is, “People forget details, but they remember impressions.”
