Video is used for many different reasons and in many different ways. Our clients all have different needs, audiences and desired outcomes. For a video to work, you need to start by considering what you want it to do. You will probably want people who view your video to act or think differently. Who is your audience, where will they watch the video and how would you describe the outcome you need? Our Charlotte Video Production team at Steve Huff Media will put your audience and your objectives at the heart of everything we do. We listen, we understand and then deliver results-driven videos in any form and on any subject.
A FEW USES FOR VIDEO:
Website Promotional Video
Instructional / Educational Video

STEP 1: PRE-PRODUCTION PLANNING
This is the planning stage of the project. We can meet with you in person, by telephone call or video chat to discuss your goals and objectives for the video project. This process will help you clarify the audience you want to reach, the message you want to convey and the response you desire from your audience.
Once you've determined these important objectives, we can determine the best audio and visuals elements to effectively tell your story and reach your audience. We will make a production plan the outlines the time, gear and other resources needed to get the project done. Together, we will examine options for the project, including: filming interviews, using voice over narration, shooting b-roll, still images, motion graphics, special effects, music and more. Your budget will provide a framework for the level of production and best approach to successfully complete the project.
All video tells some kind of story and is meant to accomplish something with the viewer. We can help you use video to inform your audience, inspire or to motivate them to action. Video provides the unique ability to promote your brand, products, event, destination and to convey a concept. Our award winning Charlotte Video Production team knows how to get the job done in a way that takes the burden off of you and smooths the way to highly successful project.

STEP 2: PRODUCTION

STEP 3: POST PRODUCTION
The final stage in the process is post production. This is where we combine the video footage, still images, graphics, logos, narration and music to create the final production. The post production process involves tightly editing the elements so the video story flows and moves along in a compelling way that achieves your objectives. In this step, we will color correct all of the footage and images so the video will pop off the screen and convey a high-production value quality. We will also master all of the spoken audio levels and combine them with appropriate music.
The team at Steve Huff Media can incorporate your logo and graphics, create graphics from scratch and we own an extensive library of stock graphics for use in the productions we do. We also have the ability to create highly professional motion graphics of the quality you see on television every day. Finally, we render and output your video in a format appropriate to your needs for sharing the video with your intended audience.
