Strategic Plan Process

Like most successful endeavors, a great production begins with a great plan.  Every production entails countless details – the organization of which ensures your great success.

After years of working in production, though, we understand that the production itself is usually just one piece of a much larger picture.  Perhaps you are looking to boost sales or raise money.  Maybe your goal is to incite the viewer to action.  Or maybe you are planning an amazing event that you want to remember for a lifetime.  Our ultimate goal is to help you accomplish your goals.  We are confident that we can deliver stunning quality and gorgeous imagery, but even more, we want the final product to serve its purpose.

We accomplish this by working alongside you in the planning process.  Before we ever push Record, we sit down with you to get a sense of your purpose, mission, or goal.

At Global Village, we are more than just a production company.  We are privileged to be one part of a cooperative media group that specializes in marketing and strategy, building a donor base, creating beautiful Web sites, planning events, and so much more.  You will find our whole team at your disposal at the start of any project.

Developing strategic and marketing plans.

We offer a free initial consultation and planning session as part of all of our video projects, but we are here to assist you in all other areas of the pre-production process as well.

Together we will build a roadmap that gets you from point A straight to success.  Video production may be just one small part of your plan.  We invite you to sit down and brainstorm with us to ensure that your production provides maximum impact online, on-air, or via any outlet that brings you the results you desire.

Pre-Production

Plan, Plan, Plan!

The key to any successful production lies in a well-executed pre-production plan.  From securing locations to organizing talent, story-boarding to budgeting, there is much that you can do prior to the production phase to economize both your time and your finances at the hour of the actual shoot.

Global Village has the team and the tools to help you plan out your next production.  We can dive in and do the job for you or just take a look at what you’ve done to make sure nothing is missing.  It’s up to you!

Pre-Production

    • Treatments
    • Scripting

    • Scheduling

Storyboards and Treatments

Storyboards and treatments layout the overall picture of your production.  Whether you prefer images or a well-developed, descriptive outline, Global Village will bring creativity and foresight to the planning process.  Let’s start painting the picture for your next music video, commercial, or corporate video today!

Script Revision

The central element to most any production is its script.  A great script lays the foundation for an excellent finished piece.  To the contrary, no amount of fancy production work, big-name talent, or hot locations can compensate for a script that isn’t quite right.

How does your script stack up?  Have you been sitting on a great script but held back on bringing it to life because you are not convinced by the ending?  Or you love the idea but cannot place your finger on the missing element?  Or maybe you are itching to produce your piece, but you aren’t sure it can be done economically?  Global Village is here to help.  Contact us today!

Script Writing

Script Writing and RevisionHave a terrific concept but writing isn’t your cup of tea?  No worries, we write scripts, as well!  Our team of talented writers and producers has written hundreds of commercials, television and radio shows, short films, and even a few movie scripts over the years.  Let’s get started on yours today!

Budgeting

Budgeting for a video production can be murky territory!  Can you afford the “it” actor?  Do you need one camera or three?  Should you film at your local restaurant or in the studio?  How much will it cost to make your logo move like that?  These are all vital questions to understanding what your next production will cost.  No worries.  Global Village is here to help.  We know the production industry, and we certainly understand working within a budget.  Have a number in mind?  Let’s talk about how best to utilize your investment for maximum results.

Talent Casting

CastingThe right production frames the right face!  Let us help you find the perfect match for your production.  Whether we review your candidates and casting reels or find the best professional for each part, Global Village has been discovering great talent for years.

Location Scouting

Location! Location! Location!  We’ve all heard the popular chant of the real estate market, but it’s not far from the truth for a video production either.  The perfect location literally sets that stage for your production.  And it goes far beyond just aesthetics.  Insurance, lighting, availability, dressing rooms, ceiling height, and so many other factors must combine for a location to fit the bill for your next production.  With industry contacts and a discerning eye, Global Village’s experience can help you pinpoint the best location (or locations!) for your next video success.

Scheduling

Coordinating a production requires tight planning.  We all know that time is money, right?  Let us help you plan crew, talent, breaks, set-up, break down, and all the other little details that will ensure your production is a scheduling success.

Contact us for rates and availability.

Steadicam

The steadicam is one of the most vital elements to a dynamic production.   Since its invention, it has literally revolutionized film and video capture.  Designed to bring mobility and portability – not to mention versatility – to every scene, it does not rely on tracks or platforms; it goes where a dolly and a jib cannot, and it captures action and movement – regardless of terrain – with sweeping and fluid accuracy and steadiness of image.  The steadicam truly is a must-have tool in nearly every production.

As with any tool, a steadicam in the hands of an inexperienced operator is of little use.   To the new user, the steadicam can seem bulky, over-reactive, and even finicky.   With an experienced operator, however, the steadicam adds an impressive edge to your production.

Global Village brings you the whole package – a professional and sturdy steadicam designed for use with cameras of all sizes and shapes – as well as experienced and professional operators who have countless music videos, commercials, films, documentaries, news stories, and other productions to their credit.

Our prices are affordable and our service impeccable.  With day rates starting as low as $250 and special pricing for Indie productions, you can count on Global Village to bring creative latitude to your next production.

Didn’t get enough of our first demo?   Take a look at this addition as we highlight smooth filming while running with the steadicam.

Post Production

It’s a wrap! Now what?

Global Village’s team has everything you need to take your masterpiece from film to finish.

Editing

FinalCutpro

A seasoned editor understands the vision and goal of each production, skillfully weaving together each take, camera angle, and scene into a fluid piece that will have the greatest impact.  Global Village’s editing team uses the latest versions of FinalCut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects, replete with all the bells and whistles, to make your production a masterpiece.  Check out our portfolio for some samples of our stellar post-production work.

Color-Correction, Color-Grading, Visual Effects

Do you have video footage that lacks the proper lighting or just doesn’t “pop” like you would like?  Need that billboard to promote your product?  How about lens flares or picture-in-picture?  You are only limited by your imagination!  Leave it to Global Village to take your production to new levels.

Motion Graphics and 3D Animation

 Nothing adds more pizzazz to your production than a creative animation or moving graphics.  The great majority of the most memorable videos of the past decade have incorporated dynamic graphics.  Nearly every sporting event, commercial, and promotional video features motion graphics.  We love what they can do to make video truly shine.  Take a look at this compilation of some of our favorite motion graphics and 3D animation projects and then contact us to get started on your next project.
