What We Do
We are a remote post production house, very remote, based in South Africa in fact but for your purposes think of us as little, post production related people living in your computer. Not just any people, award winning people, we have collectively and separately won D&AD, Clio, London, Loerie and Cannes Golds and Grand Prix in fact there are very few award ceremonies world wide that haven’t recognized at least one of us and now we are coming to live in your office.
Through an incredibly fortunate confluence of circumstance and, of course, very clever programming, you now have access to equipment, experience and talent at a fraction of the cost. Our services are now available worldwide and because of the exchange rate,we are cheap as chips, did anyone else in the world hear our Rand (currency) crash through the floor?
Simply put we offer the full spectrum of post production services from off-line through grading, on-line and final mix but at Rand rates. (click here for a link to the latest currency report) We thought you’d think that was funny.
How We Do It
Simply fill in a brief form and we will provide you with your very own, unique and secure link to your job site. From there you will be able to navigate your way through live video chat, or if you’re not feeling up to revealing your latest wardrobe malfunction, just plain old chat through the various processes we go through to produce that heart achingly beautiful/ side splittingly funny/ “I’m King of the World” dramatic commercial. You can also link in your colleagues, friends, clients or as some are want to do, your secretary/wife/husband/girl/boyfriend.
Each part of the process is as interactive and immediate as you would like it to be.
POST PRODUCTION SUPERVISION
It is a well known fact that South Africans, with some noteable exceptions, don’t “work to live”, we “live to work”, so the post production supervisor will work while you live. Think about it, someone out here will be executing your every whim while you do other stuff, so after the initial brief, all that will be expected of you is feedback on the different stages of the process, awesome.
From the comfort of your ergonomically designed office chair or your favourite comfy chair at home you can give the offline editor your thoughts on execution, emotion, anything really and just like that, within a couple of days, you have an offline. You will always get what you ask for but from time to time you might get something even better than that, now it’s just getting everybody else on board with your vision.
Unless of course you’re someone who likes to leave the office in which case the grading process is the one for you.
Because we like to make sure that the “picture is perfect”, a quick trip to the nearest compatible Baselight grading suite complete with a calibrated colour monitor, gives you a chance for a tete-a-tete with our colourist, lets you give the grade the final once over, and most likely a thumbs-up.
From here it is back to your office for daily updates on the progress of 3D, compositing or just the simple, straight forward, video finish.
Art Directors like to say that audio is a great way to keep Copywriters busy while they do the real work…
We don’t think that’s true at all.
We can record your favourite v/o artist from anywhere in the world while you direct them via our “portal” or in person. Once all the elements are in place and the audio is cleaned-up, you and our audio guy can tweak and fiddle to your hearts’ content, he really is a Cannes Grand Prix 2016 Winner, you can trust him.
Creativity without strategy is called ‘art.’
Creativity with strategy is called ‘Advertising.’
Meet The Team
Editor and Post-Production Supervisor
Each shot has the inherent potential for story telling, it’s my job to exploit it.
For me post production is all about perception, the narrative in offline, the colours, music and sound design all come together to inform the viewer exactly how to feel and even when to feel it.
Creative producing. It’s a tough, rewarding job. The lessons I’ve learnt in the past 16 years is that if you produce for the best creative team making the numbers work is logical rather than a challenge. The knowledge of workflow paired with all this creative awesomeness is what makes post production work. My mission is to support our client and the team to make the funniest, most cost effective, beautiful and impactful commercials this world of advertising has seen.
People don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill.
They want a quarter-inch hole.
