Spark their emotion, encourage engagement and incite action through video storytelling.
We tell our story by showing it. Our 2019 showreel shines a light on the work we’ve done over the past year, from local projects with Canadian businesses like the Walker Real Estate Group, to Fortune 500 companies like Air Canada. We take on each opportunity with pride, creating impactful stories through the use of video.
We blended some of our best motion graphics and animation work into one seamless showreel.
We’re not your typical Ottawa video production agency. Despite starting the company only four years ago, our production staff has been working in video production for over 7 years. Our work continues to prove Ajax Creative as a leader in Canada for the best video production services.
We combine our passions, our creativity, and our experience to craft one-of-a-kind customer experiences for our clients.
How do we do it? By producing high-quality videos using a unique storytelling approach that entertains, inspires, and incites action in your consumers.
We look forward to showing you why.
Pretty much any type of video you can think of, we can create, and we probably already have.
We’ve worked with a wide range of industries in both B2B and B2C to create a variety of videos including brand videos, brand films, corporate videos, explainer videos, 2D animation videos, 3D animation videos, product videos, testimonials, commercials, social ads, crowdfunding videos, case study videos and drone videos. Learn more about each type, here.
We're an Ottawa Video Production Company at heart, born & raised. Our Ottawa, Ontario office is located at 5330 Canotek Road, Unit #2.
All of our video production shoots & animation videos are all produced by our in-house Ottawa production staff. When needed we subcontract specialists dependant on the scoop of work and will let you know when we do so.
There’s a lot that goes into creating a video and the exact process will depend on each project’s unique requirements.
Typically, our Ottawa Video Production process involves:
Research & Development - We start with thorough research and development, where we dive into video concept creation, video campaigning, storyboarding, scriptwriting, and location scouting.
Pre-Production - We take care of all project management including scheduling, sourcing, licensing, and communication with clients and actors. We map out all the necessary equipment, shooting days, and editing days before starting production.
Live-Action Production - State-of-the-art cameras, lights, audio equipment, drones, and more are used to capture all the pieces we need to create the perfect story as mapped out in our creative brief. We ensure the day goes smoothly by having an agenda and communicating everything well in advance.
Post-Production - This is where the magic happens. We take all the footage we captured and craft it into your story through video editing in Ottawa, colour grading, compositing, rendering, exporting, musical score, sound FX voice-overs, sound recording, mixing and mastering. This is the time where we add in animation, motion design and any visual effects.
Our creative process is simple but thorough. We want to ensure that from start to finish you have the ability to oversee and provide feedback to achieve full transparency and efficiency.
Typically, our animation video production process involves:
Kick-Off Meeting - 60 Minute Meeting to understand your business, your goals, and to organize the initial details of the project.
Research & Development - We first start by asking questions - lots of them. Why do customers choose you? Why don't prospects choose you? Why do people leave your company? Why do people come to work for your company? and so on. We use this understanding to drive the entire project.
Script Creation, Script Reviewal & Creative Brief -We will review your script/s and recommend any changes if necessary. Then we will create our creative brief and create a logistical game plan to implement it. We map out the necessary voice-over recording days, storyboard days, animation days, timeframe for revisions and put down a schedule, and get moving.
Voice-Over Recordings -We have a network of experienced voice artists to work on the voice-over recordings once your script is done. If you prefer a particular type of voice artist based on gender, nationality, or age preference, we will find the right person.
Storyboard Creation & Styling - We will present a storyboard of still images for approval, once the script has been signed off. This is based on your corporate identity and the video sections discussed.
Video Editing, Animation, Visual Effects & Sound Design - This is where we really shine. After finishing the storyboard of shots, we bring it all together. With professional voice recordings, eye-grabbing visual effects & graphics, animations, and an immersive music score - we'll have an amazing video that's ready to hit the market.
Presentation & Revisions - We will present our first draft on Frame.io and work back and forth with you until it’s perfect.
Launch With Video Advertising Strategy - We send you the master export and assist you with the distribution strategy by creating a game plan on how to get the most out of your investment. We layout specific strategies for marketing and action items to accomplish. Once your ready to advertise your video, we have a network of highly specialized marketing consultants that we can introduce you to
Each project typically takes us between 4-5 weeks, but depending on each clients needs, we can get it done sooner or later.
We have industry-leading equipment including RED DSMC2 2 Dragon-X 6K camera and Black Magic Ursa Mini Pro 4.6k camera. We also have the ability to rent any camera equipment if you require a different type.
"On behalf of Air Canada’s 34,000 employees, I would like to thank Jared Floyd, Jared Galley and Joel B-Leblanc from Ajax Creative for the amazing work they’ve done with Back to Juno. With minimal direction, the team has produced an amazing film, filled with emotion, retracing the return of a WW2 veteran to his battlefield … 75 years later. The art direction, the cinematography, and the story-telling makes this 15-minute film a little jewel that we are so proud to share with the world."
"Within a month, Ajax Creative delivered a well-made commercial that promoted the brand. Their continued track record of strong performance has helped secure future work."

We had a blast with Ajax Creative and we’re looking forward to our next project with them!"
"...they get it right the first time, 9/10. What other production agency can you say that about?"
