Halifax Video Production Process

Boldness in balance

Our unique production process is larger than the sum of its parts. By blending visuals, sound and emotion, we create moving films that mean something more.

Emotions

Emotional investment drives action. We make audiences feel something by identifying what emotion we need to capture to inspire the right action and concocting the perfect story to rouse it.

Ellipse 22-min

Framing & Transitions

Each scene plays its part in telling a story, but the framing and transitions themselves are part of the narrative. We keep the audience engaged by being intentional about what they’re allowed to see and when. Everything on screen has its purpose; nothing your audience sees is an accident.

Look + mood

We paint audiences a picture, amplifying the feeling we want them to experience in each scene. Through camera movement, aesthetics, casting and colouring, we can inspire excitement or instill a sense of calm.

Your beautiful visuals are elevated with sound effects, voice nuances, natural sounds and an impactful music score chosen for the feeling it generates. Every sound is intentional, creating an immersive new world for audiences to explore.
