FOUR-STEP VIDEO PRODUCTION PROCESS
We guarantee quality from strategy to distribution, for your satisfaction.
1. Video Production Planning
Our project management process begins with strategic planning, where we consider the options and identify the big idea. Next, we develop our approach and handle the logistics, keeping in mind your vision, budget, and timeline.
We record cinematic HD video footage, preserving clarity and conveying professionalism. We strive to capture stories with emotional appeal, and support the storyline with intention, variety, and high quality.
3. Video Editing
Our post-production services are designed to create favorable impressions and deliver real value to your business. We compile clips into meaningful sequences, with an appropriate blend of originality and logical order. Custom titles, motion graphics, and music elements add to the artistry.
4. Video Marketing
Depending on your goals, we provide additional marketing tools to present your videos. We develop videos for online discovery, offering keyword optimization, closed captioning, and other specialty services. We customize videos for publishing on websites, social media sites, YouTube, and the big screen.
PROFESSIONAL VIDEO PRODUCTION SERVICES
Compelling storytelling is the secret to successful marketing videos.
Event Coverage Videos
Allow for more people to experience your public appearances by documenting your trade shows, presentations, and special events. Your audience is more likely to ask questions, make purchases, or visit your location after seeing you and your business in action. In this example, we worked with the world-famous Austin radio station, 93.3 KGSR, recording dual-camera coverage of their SXSW Live Broadcast. Their SXSW music showcase featured on-air live performances by Austin artists Bob Schneider, White Denim, and Los Coast. Global chart-toppers included: The Avett Brothers, BØRNS, X Ambassadors, Chvrches, Jake Bugg, Hayes Carll, The Strumbellas, Jack Garratt…
Business Profile Videos
A Google search for “video marketing statistics” reveals how videos boost visibility for your business. Google search rankings now value “quality content” over keywords, and so business profile videos are increasingly popular on websites. Videos like these keep your audience on your website longer—a key indicator of quality. They also allow businesses to build relationships with potential customers by introducing the people behind the business. In this example, award-winning real estate agent Karen Wheeler gives a personal introduction to RE/MAX 1, headquartered here in the Austin area.
Advertising & Promo Videos
Showcase your company’s products and services with a memorable video—the most effective way of engaging with customers. Today’s best marketing videos create great first impressions and real connections. You can bring your audience behind the scenes, spotlighting your true character and revealing the best qualities of your company. In this example, the Global Sisterhood Pledge celebrates all women worldwide as sisters. Here, 40 women voiced a singular statement, calling all women to unify. This cause-related marketing video stirred massive shares on social media, making this a radical viral video.
Videos are the go-to solution for online learning. Google loves “How-to” videos. E-learning and training videos extend the reach of teachers, and they bring simplicity to situations that are otherwise complex. Videos make training programs more efficient by packaging them in a sharable format, as opposed to repeating live instruction multiple times. Various types of educational videos include lectures by subject-matter experts, interviews with practitioners in the field, and demonstrations of new solutions. In this example, the LeatherNu product is demonstrated. This product demo provides guidance to new users, and serves as a great promotional tool, with a square variation for Facebook.
Testimonial & Fundraising Videos
Your videos can have a major impact on your growth. Consider the credibility boost of a satisfied customer of yours on camera, expressing their appreciation for your company, for all to see and share. Videography facilitates word-of-mouth communication, and this is the best form of advertising. In this example, Sarah Lessire shares the story behind her book, The Scent of Dreams. This fundraising video helped propel a successful Kickstarter Project, rich with testimonials from the book’s earliest readers. Today the book is successfully published, and available on global markets.
Commercials & Music Videos
Through the power of emotional appeal, a video can inspire your audience and lift them off their feet. Marketers and musicians have invested in movie-making for over a hundred years, and the spread in popularity is increasing as more businesses rely on videos to share their stories. In this example, Amanda Cevallos stars in “Freddy Ain’t Ready,” a music video produced in support of her second album: Got Me Where You Want Me. Amanda Cevallos is a Honky Tonk star in the Austin live music scene (www.amandacevallos.com).
The camera’s ability to stir the emotions is perhaps best utilized in a documentary film. Here, dramatic storytelling and musical accompaniment meet with intriguing imagery to create what we call “cinematic truth.” It is believed that the camera can render reality more accurately than the human eye, thanks to the varied lenses, filters, time-lapse, slow motion, and video editing techniques. In this example, Lakota warriors stand in solidarity, peaceful and prayerful, at the height of the Standing Rock Movement. This documentary is recorded live from North Dakota, where the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation is located. View the film: Standing in Solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux.
Our unique mini-movies are short and sweet artistic impressions, designed to portray a person’s passion. These videos come in various styles. One example is the looping fullscreen video background, which is a new trend in website design. A second example is the popular square video of 1-minute or less, for Facebook. And a third example is the sizzle reel, like the example shown here. Each of these examples is a “teaser,” conveying key elements of the story and symbolic imagery that inspires the audience to ask for more. In this example, Austin aerialist Tolly Moseley demonstrates her techniques as a performer and instructor in aerial silks.
Preserve your family story in fine detail. Wedding videos are classic family keepsakes, freezing moments in time in order to experience them again and again. In addition to wedding videos, family legacy videos secure your most meaningful stories, giving you the chance to remember the qualities of your loved ones. Consider memorializing grandma in the kitchen, sharing her recipes in her own voice. Consider recording the children through their various rites of passage, from birthdays to graduations. The possibilities are infinite. In this example, young Masha Cox performs a song she’s written with her instructor at the outstanding Austin music school, We Love Music.
Wow your audience with high-impact videos on a high-performance website.
Video Showcase Websites
Today’s best websites feature prominent videos, loaded with compelling storytelling and HD imagery. Videos help with SEO too, loaded with keywords that help the message to stand out. In this example, the Wild Family producers display a library of original video entertainment, while highlighting an array of educational content, plus merchandise for sale. Bells and whistles on this website include: e-commerce online store, email marketing, video blog, 3D video motion graphics, interactive call-to-action buttons, cutting-edge video campaigns, and photos galore.
Music Marketing Websites
In a music city like Austin, where everyone’s a musician, a professional website is a key indicator that a band takes itself seriously. At the moment, one pop music group making major moves here in Austin is The Mrs. The website for The Mrs is new as of November 2016, just in time for the band’s first full-length album. This website is a great example of a media-rich website. It includes an interactive photo gallery and a variety of videos including: music videos, behind-the-scenes documentaries, and cause-related viral videos. Their Magic Mirror viral video currently has over 5 million views on YouTube!
Sell your products across the country and beyond the borders, with an online store. ARISE websites make e-commerce marketing simple for you, with an easy-to-edit WordPress website backed by Woocommerce. In this example, Kuhdoo Soap Co showcases the online store for Austin’s favorite local soap company. This Austin small business is making a big impression on the local economy, through custom hand-made soaps sold online, in farmer’s markets, and in stores throughout Texas.

—Robin Hunter, Restaurant Owner of Cazamance African Restaurant in Austin, TexasRead The Review On Yelp
The video he delivered (in just 1 week!!) went above and beyond my expectations for a ‘perfect’ video. Guests that couldn’t make it to the event really enjoyed watching the video and all of them said they actually felt like they were there. That’s exactly what I wanted! We feel so lucky we found Cabe to film our reception. It was such a special evening for us and the beautiful video will help us remember the evening forever.
—Sangamithra Narasimhan, Austin, TexasRead The Review On Yelp
They directed us into the heart and soul of our business through the art of film. Our videos have traveled far beyond what we expected.
—Jonathan Jones, Executive Director of Garbo A Salon in Austin, TexasRead The Review On Yelp
They can capture the moment through such an artistic and exquisite way. I had the opportunity to have a session with Kat. She took her time to discuss about my expectations and she made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I had an exceptional experience! The photos were stunning!
–Fabiana Roller, Instructor of Zumba in Austin, TexasRead The Review On Yelp

Cabe and Kat did everything to make me feel comfortable on camera and delivered WAY MORE than I could have hoped for. The outcome was a super professional, GORGEOUS video! I can’t say enough good about my experience.
—Deborah Kern, Instructor of PranaShakti in Austin, TexasRead The Review On Yelp
The experience of talking and playing and sitting for their interview was lovely… but the videos themselves are stunning! What a delight, to work with beautiful people who evoke all that is wise and wonderful in our collective experience!
—Maddy Vertenten, Life Coach of MaddyV.com in Freeport, MaineRead The Review On Yelp
Kat and Cabe turn everyday life into art. Their combined talents provide whatever you need for your business or family. I have used Kat as a photographer for my family and found her to be punctual, professional, and her photos were fantastic. The Lindsays are great promoters and have not only built up their own business, but have supported the businesses of others. Their monthly YouTube show is a great mix of their personal lives, music, recipes, literature, and interviews with local Austin artists and entrepreneurs. This is a team of innovators who bring passion to their projects, and you will be so pleased with the result!
