When it comes to crafting a video for your business, we realize there are plenty of production companies out there to choose from. Since we launched Magic Elements Studios nearly five years ago, it seems like the number of studios offering explainer videos has increased ten-fold. And while we can’t tell you how we compare to everyone else out there, we can tell you what we know we do well, and why you should consider giving us your hard earned money.
Beautiful visuals, a snappy soundtrack, and a smooth voice-over are all part of a successful video, but they’re not the most important. When it comes to producing a video that effectively tells your story and delivers a compelling message, you need a solid foundation. You need a creative concept that is unique and on brand along with a script that addresses the key benefits of your product or service and drives action.
Before we even get to work, we take the time to understand your business and analyze your brief. Whether it’s a product that’s difficult to explain or a business that seems boring, we do what it takes to distill each concept into a simple message that’s easy to understand and connects emotionally with customers. Whether it’s a conference call with you and your team, or a direct meeting, we want to ensure everyone is on the same boat and working towards the same goal.
We understand that pricing is extremely important. For that reason we work to fixed prices based on the type of video you would like and it’s requirement. This fixed price includes everything you need for a complete and professional video so there will be no extras down the line. We feel this is important so you know you are getting everything you need for one fixed price.
The older we get, the more we appreciate people with experience. My parents call it wisdom, and not only does it help you get things done faster, better, and more efficiently, it helps you avoid the mistakes you made in the past. Each and every day we’re working on videos and learning something new, what works and what doesn’t.
As we’ve matured as a company, we want to partner with you, not just produce. There’s a big difference. Producing means taking what you’re told and executing someone else’s vision. Partnering means being intimately involved in the creative process and working closely together to bring a bring a shared vision to life. And while we may have spent thousands of hours creating video, you have thousands of hours with your business, which means a true partnership is the only way to create amazing work.
We work to fixed turnaround times so you know when we will provide the next part of your project. Our turnaround times are 3, 5 or 8 working days depending on the stage your project is at. When you work with Magic Elements Studios you will be given specific and realistic dates for each deliverable.
Most studios have an in-house team of designers, animators, and cinematographers. Not the case here. We intentionally wouldn’t hire a full-time creative staff. Instead, we partner with some of the most talented creative individuals on a project basis. That scares some people off, but hopefully our work speaks for itself.
Instead of being constrained to a limited range of styles and capabilities, this model gives us the flexibility to assemble a small team around your project that can provide a nearly limitless range of creative styles (e.g. clean, modern, cartoon or corporate) and techniques (e.g. animation, live action). And let’s face it, most of the best creatives are freelance anyway !
We have a small but mighty team here, and I think it works to our advantage. Because small also means we can find ways to get things done in a time crunch and on a tight budget. No big overheads or posh office, just a small, fun-loving, talented group of hard workers.
We know Magic Elements Studios isn’t going to be the right partner for everyone, but if these reasons resonate with you, please get in touch. We’d love to chat with you!
