We've Perfected the Science Behind the Art

It can take over 100 steps to create a single video or photo package. So we've made things easy.


  1. Reach out to us on our contact form with some details about your project or brand.

  2. We’ll review internally.

    • If we’re a perfect match we’ll schedule a phone call.

    • If we need more context we’ll email you an additional brief.

    • If we’re not a match, we’ll respectfully pass on the project while offering guidance.

  3. Once we connect and are on the same page, we’ll present a creative proposal with a budget.

  4. Once the budget and scope-of-work are approved, we’ll sign our standard contract.

  5. After signing, we send our initial invoice and the Producer on your account will invite your team to our project management tool that serves as the digital headquarters for our collaboration.
