Stages of a Video Production

Pre-Production establishes the message and the plan for producing the message in one of several distribution formats.

Production involves building the individual elements required by the pre-production plan.

Post-Production brings the individual elements together into a final distribution product.

Distribution takes the edited master video and prepares it for Internet, Intranet, or DVD delivery to clients.

Corporate Video

IMC Studios has been creating high quality, cost-effective corporate video since 1992. 

Pre-Production

Consultation

IMC representatives consult with potential clients to determine needs and assess which stages of the project (pre-production, production, post-production or distribution) will be handled by IMC staff.  It is essential that IMC representatives determine whether the client has established the message and format of the project IN WRITING.

An IMC representative provides initial consultation with potential clients free of charge, excluding meals and travel.

Scripting/Storyboarding

IMC will take completed project specifications and create working scripts (or full scripts and storyboards) with narrative for client approval. This saves you money by establishing visual elements and message during the pre-production phase of a project. (Assistance with project specification is also available--See Task Analysis .)

Scripts are required for project pricing. Non-scripted production support will be provided on a Time and Materials basis only.

Scripting is provided at $50/hour. Estimate 1 hour per finished minute for projects up to 15 minutes.  Above 15 minutes will be priced by the project.

Location Scouting

Locations are scouted and evaluated for the availability and quality of:

  • Equipment Power
  • Natural lighting/artificial scenarios
  • Vehicle Accessibility
  • Trailer services/restroom facilities

The Location Scouting Report is produced at $50/hour.  Travel to and from the location is $35/hour per person, excluding airfare, lodging and meals.
