Pre-production: this is all the work that you have to do before you start the shooting. This includes writing the script, casting the talent, designing sets and costumes, building sets, scouting locations and so on.
Production: this is where you actually shoot the video or film using all the materials you prepared during pre-production.
Post-production: this is where you edit your video, add sound effects, video and titles. This is also where you add visual/graphic effects.
In projects where there is a significant amount of computer-generated images -- like Gravity -- and in animation, these lines are blurred.
Cinematic films require pre-production, including research and scripting. Most use interviews, voice-over narration, or both. The video production company you hire should have a skilled producer to write a compelling script, create interview questions that bring out emotion and drama, and who is able to put interviewees at ease so they come across in the best way possible.
The videographer must be familiar with film industry standards for subject placement and composition. The filming should not only be visually beautiful, but capture true emotions. It is the feeling the audience gets from watching a film that will compel them to take action or connect them to your story.
Not all “high-definition” equipment is the same. To create a cinematic style video, HD cameras with 1920×1080 resolution need to be used. Most modern HD cameras shoot in “progressive mode”, which is essential for encoded video on the Internet. Ultra HD is also known as 4K HD.
Lighting is an important element for cinematic videos. The right lighting creates the mood and depth seen in Hollywood films. Our team can provide your project or current production LED or HMI Lighting.
Hollywood uses a 24 frames per second (24p) frame rate. This eliminates the amateur “home-movie” look and will automatically give a professional cinematic feel. For television productions we capture at 60 frames per second (60p) frame rate upon request.
The use of Glidecams gives a smooth cinematic look. It allows the camera to stay steady even while the videographer is walking or running. A dolly allows a camera to move smoothly to and from a subject.
Sound quality is essential to creating a cinematic video. Wireless microphones, booms and a good audio technician should be used on productions to create crisp, movie quality audio.
Having multiple cameras allows the production company to have a variety of camera angles and perspectives to work with when editing a cinematic video. The final product will have a more interesting and realistic look.
Good quality music from a music library is another important element in cinematic videos. Music helps to move the video along and sets the mood for different scenes.
All movies have a movie “trailer” which shows exciting highlights of the full-length feature film. Video production companies can borrow this technique from Hollywood when editing your video. Popular techniques for cinematic videos are color correction, black and white and soft focus.
