The Video Making Process

Many people still don’t fully understand what we filmmakers or videographers actually do and in what ways we may differ from one another. Below, we look at the process and stages involved in making great films and videos. But firstly, you need to understand how we differ from many of our competitors. Now, many of our competitors just do one or two stages in the below process so you will have to either hire others to complete the additional stages or you will have to deal with those stages yourself. Here at Caldwell Entertainment, on the other hand, we are a full service brisbane videographers company meaning we are involved in all the below stages - so if you're a business or artist you don’t have to worry about a thing, we look after all of it for you:

  1. Development. During this stage the script is written and all ideas on how the completed film or video will look and feel are formulated. We’ll begin bringing key people on board and will make sure any studios, clients or investors are happy with the general direction.
  2. Pre-Production. This is the organising stage. So at this point we work to secure locations, lock in the rest of the cast and crew, finalise a schedule & budget for the project and ensure we have all the necessary equipment.
  3. Production. This is simply the period in which we are filming the project.
  4. Post Production. This is the stage at which we edit, put together the sound design, create any visual effects and make the project look the very best it possibly can.
  5. Distribution. Now it’s time to get the film or video in front of people. At CE, we have had projects in cinemas, on TV and online. So it’s a matter of looking at your audience or potential customers and deciding on the best area(s) to reach them.

If you’re looking at a production company that only shoots and edits (which is the majority), they are only dealing with stages 3 and 4 which leaves a lot of pivotal processes in your hands. This can potentially create a lot of unnecessary stress as film or video making may not be your area of expertise. It could also add additional costs as it may simply prove necessary to get someone else experienced with the industry to help you with at least aspects of the unfulfilled stages. Needless to say, we would always recommend a full service production company like Caldwell Entertainment to take care of all your Film or Video needs.
