  • What is live-action video production?

    Live-action production comprises videos that reveal real-life experiences or products through the use of real human actors and settings, unlike animation. In essence, live-action videos incorporate real human beings in real-life settings.

  • Why is a live-action video right for my business?

    Live-action is effective in communicating human experiences. This approach can help you connect with your audience by revealing a tangible product, facility or share real stories and convey genuine emotion.

  • What does a typical video production process look like?

    With an extensive kick-off call, we’ll identify your specific goals and vision. At pre-production, we’ll establish the video concept, scripting, casting, and present you with a storyboard. At full-scale production, we’ll shoot your video until everything assembles at post-production. Following any final tweaks or edits, your video is ready to be received by your audience.

  • How long does a typical live-action video production take to complete?

    Collectively, 6-7 weeks with pre-production comprising roughly 2-3 weeks of thorough planning and conceptualization to ensure a smooth and successful video production.

    The crew size depends on the size of production - we might have as few as 3 crew members to upwards of 10 or more. Typically our production triad is always on set comprising our Executive Production, Video Director and Director of Photography, respectively.

  • Is a live-action video the same as a “how-to” video?

    A “how-to” video is a screencast video – which is a type of live-action video. This is where you demonstrate the navigation or use of software or platform with ease. Similarly, explainer videos explain or display the benefits attributed to a product or service in a targeted manner.

  • Wait, is a testimonial video also a live-action video?

    A testimonial video is definitely a type of live-action video. This is where customers and clients relay their favourable experiences with your brand or service so as to reflect a sense of assurance or trust among other prospective customers.

  • Can I combine live-action with animation?

    Yes! In fact, live-action and animation often complements explainer videos (those short online marketing videos that describe particular services or products) and we’re here to provide you with the most effective videos and media to achieve your goals.

  • Do I need access to a studio to produce a live-action video?

    Not necessarily. Depending on the nature of your video and the story being told a live-action video can be shot almost anywhere. As such, our team thoroughly sources and secures optimal locations to bring your video to life.  

  • What are some advantages of live-action videos?

    We are social beings. Our ability to connect with other people transcends the boundaries of a screen and the unique emotional aspect characteristic of live-action videos makes connecting with your audience seemingly primitive and unavoidably evocative.
