What You Get

Work Process

All of us are smarter than any of us

Tim Brown, IDEO
Based on Ideo’s design kit, our fresh human-centered approach towards video production is specifically optimised for a startup. It helps us collaborate with the startup to communicate and understand it well, and work together towards a perfect video.
Our work process seeks an active role of the startup. This ensures that the startup participates in and follows the progress of the iterative process of inspiration, ideation and implementation, which is the key to our methodology.

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

Leonardo Da Vinci
To accommodate design iterations and to be timely and relevant with the ever changing marketing trends, we translated the traditional video production process to an agile sprint method. It involves our team working in short sprints of 1-2 weeks.
The sprint method allows to shortcut the endless-discussion cycle, remove the unhelpful steps in the work process and thereby compress the timeline exceedingly. An iterative sprint process also ensures that the result video is a success among the users!

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Steve Jobs
Our team loves filmmaking and the dedication it involves. But what makes it different is the balance between approaching video as an art and as a tool for business! It is this balance that makes our video creations a piece of art that captivates a startup's audience.
We understand the startup business strategy & goals to develop a video concept and an influencing story using our technical expertise and deliver the best videos across different mediums- live footage, animation & virtual reality!
