When working with clients we lean on experience & creativity to find the most unique angles to approach the project. We think outside the box to find new ways to express the clients vision and we think inside the box to create content that is familiar which we know will work for the brands' audience.
When creating original content it's really helpful to lay down our ideas along with a soundtrack. Music helps foster emotions that turn into powerful visuals.
Our style of cinematography is clean with a mix of close, medium and long range shots. It allows our audience to create a mental map of where the project is taking place as well as the important characters and/or products.
Each project comes with its own challenges and lessons. It helps to go into each new project with an open mind. Its important not to say "yes" to everything but important to be welcoming to new ideas. This mindset allows each project to be unique and have a story of its own.
Roughly 70% of each project is spent editing. Our team and project are still growing in size so the one thing that we like to do at Roletape is spend some additional time during post production to make our videos unique. When we sit in the editing room we make sure that we are crafting a good story because watching a video that doesn't flow very well can be exhausting.
We are Final Cut Pro editors. The software has always been a reliable source for creating videos no matter how big or small.
Whether you are novice or a pro at editing we recommend always crafting a good storyline. It makes the video editing process flow a lot easier when you have a guide to follow.
Designs can take anywhere between 7-14 days based on the complexity. This includes at least two rounds of revisions.
Most projects only require one designer but we often collaborate in teams of 2-3 when tackling bigger projects
We love any kind of feedback we can get! Feedback only helps make each project better.
