Tacoma video production
Need to capture a simple interview? Explain a product or process? Visualize your company story? Or boost your brand with a fully scripted TV commercial? Our Tacoma video production team has you covered.
One mistake people can make in whittling down their list of possible video production companies is focusing too much on the ‘production’ part of video production. Tacoma, WA, is home to some talented directors, cinematographers and videographers, the fine folks that handle the ‘production’ or the actual shooting of the video. As important as these people are, video quality isn’t just about the visuals.
Heading up our “idea department” is an award-winning screenwriter and brand expert. Our full storyboarding and screenwriting capabilities set the stage for visual stories that stay true to who you are while being creative, emotional, and compelling. Our shooting and editing solutions scale up to meet the complexity of your vision and budget.
Since Hemisphere Design & Marketing is a full-service creative agency, we constantly build and work with brands. We create videos that speak your brand’s language in terms of vision, tone, messages, and visuals. And if your brand is in flux, we have the insight to create pieces that will propel your brand story forward.
We offer scripting, planning, shooting and editing options for the following:
Whether you need high-definition web videos, text-driven social media videos, or cinema-quality 4K, our team has the capability to help your organization take video marketing to the next level.
First, we’ll meet. Understanding you and your vision is key to your project’s success. From there, we’ll propose a scope, plan, and budget. Then the fun begins with storyboarding and scripting, or planning interviews. Securing locations and talent comes next, followed by filming. It’s an expertly choreographed flurry of activity. Next, you relax while we edit. Fair warning: relationships forged in the fire of film collaboration can lead to future video projects.
We offer scalable plans for different project sizes. When production value or project scope demands it, we work with talented local directors, cinematographers, editors, and animators, several of whom have won coveted honors for their work. Our gifted in-house team, headed up by our award-winning screenwriter, can also handle a wide range of projects at a lower price point. Whether behind the camera or just scripting and producing, we bring big ideas to life.
We’ve run a full-service creative agency in Tacoma since 2001. And since day one, Tacoma has been our jam. Helping thriving nonprofits, government entities, and small-to-mid-size businesses tell their stories better is what we do from branding, to web design, to marketing, and video. Our clients appreciate that our pricing is a bit more competitive than what they find up North in Seattle. And our ever-growing skill set means that their a few projects we have to pass on.
Video is the coin of the realm in marketing today because 80% or more of online activity involves watching video content. If you aren't using people's preferred medium for consuming content, learning info, evaluating options, and just plain enjoying themselves, it's likely that your message isn't getting across. This is very true in the B2C space, but it's also true for B2B marketing and marketing professional services. As generations X, Y, and Z take over, the expectations for rich content on websites, social media, and elsewhere have risen too, making video content important for everything from about videos to explainers to social media ads.
The most important thing is to find a production team that listens to you and serves you well. Chemistry, creativity, and capability matter. Outside of those criteria, you need to determine whether you need videography or video production. Typically videography is done by a small one-or-two-person team. Often it involves simpler documentation of events. Video production, on the other hand, can involve more processes (scripting, scouting, casting, etc.) and a larger, often more experienced crew. Video production companies can handle videography, but usually, videographers are not suited to handle full-on video production.
Professional video production costs range depending on many different factors, but a typical corporate video often costs in the neighborhood of $5,000 to $15,000. Pricing could go lower for a simple social media video or much higher depending on the complexity of your promotional video, travel costs, number of shooting days, etc. TV commercials and high-end brand videos usually start closer to $25,000 and go up from there depending on complexity, casting, and usage (e.g., local, regional, national usage). Certain types of video production are also special cases due to their labor-intensive nature (animation, stop motion, etc.).
