Films that Educate
Using the power of films to open doors of understanding
The most important part of filmmaking is pre-production. First, we do an initial research on the topic. Then we meet with clients discussing needs and goals. Next, we determine the budget and write a proposal for the project along with a tentative outline.
After the proposal and tentative outline have been approved, we then begin a more detailed plan by writing scripts, making story boards, arranging interviews, and so on.
Now it is time to begin shooting. Most educational productions involve both studio and on location shoots.
In the studio, the host narrates his or her parts for the film. We generally use a green screen to add flexibility and make the videos more interactive. On location, we film interviews and capture footage to enhance and make the presentations more meaningful.
The first step in post-production is editing a first draft. We lay out the footage according to the script, and add music and narration. The first draft is then uploaded and made available for client review. When approved, we then move into producing the final draft. A master digital copy is made. We can then duplicate copies into desired formats.
