It’s no secret that the pre-production stage is the most important of the entire filming process – but so many people decide to skip it and head straight to shooting their video. We know that each element of the production process contributes to your final video, and that’s why we take it seriously.
Our creative experts specialise in bringing a vision to life and can help you with the entire process, including planning a budget, story development, location scouting, film casting and script writing.
With some expert planning and an eye for bringing your story to life, we guarantee your production will exceed your expectations and meet your overriding objectives.
Pre-production is everything that takes place before filming or bringing a story to life. The process ensures everything aligns with your goals and identifies any areas you need to focus on before shooting your film.
We like to think of it as the perfect combination of creative thinking and logistics and guarantee that the production and post-production process relies on how you plan your movie.
When we work with you, there’s no stone left unturned, and you get to enjoy the production and post-production processes a lot more.
So, if you’re looking for a dedicated team who will turn a usually stressful process with plenty of roadblocks into a smooth journey, we’ve got you covered.
Your story is everything. If there’s no story in place, your video won’t make any sense. High-quality imagery and enticing background music aren’t enough, and while your story doesn’t need to be a masterpiece, it should always take each viewer on a journey.
The best thing is that storyboarding and script writing allow you to analyse each stage of the viewer’s journey and ensure it achieves your goals.
With Perspective Pictures, you can share your vision and objectives while we handle the rest.
Great story? Always. Perfect planning? You bet. A team who will always go the extra mile? Sure thing.
Concept Creation & Development
Cast and Crew
Every client we work with is different, and there’s never a one-size-fits-all approach to the pre-production process. As one of the premier UK video production agencies, we go out of our way to give each of our clients the support they deserve through the process.
You’ve got challenges; we look for solutions. You have a vision, and we bring it to life. Think of us as your wing people.
Here’s how we can make the pre-production process a lot easier.
Many of our clients know they need a video and have goals in mind – but fail to find the right story. That’s completely fine because we can help with the entire process and inject some creativity into your project.
Whether you have a general idea or would like us to come up with some creative angles, we’re with you.
Yep, that’s the great thing about having us on your side; you get a whole crew. We’re a 20-person strong team, with producers, directors, cinematographers, camera people and editors, so we can take on any project.
You don’t need to lift a finger (unless you want to) because we can handle the entire process from start to finish.
We’ve travelled the world and have been to some awe-inspiring places, so we’ve always got ideas about bringing your video to life. Whether you’re happiest in your own back garden or want to create an immersive video, we can help.
Our team can also work to your budget and ensure you get the right support to choose a location that suits your needs.
OK, nobody gets excited about budgeting, but it’s one of those things we have to do. To ensure the feasibility of your video, we’ll work with you to define a budget and ensure you know exactly what you’ll spend.
Regardless of how much you can spend, we’ll always go out of our way to give you the best of everything that suits your budget.
In most cases, our team has all the necessary equipment in-house, but we can also secure extra if needed. Our RED cameras provide a full cinematic experience, and their unique features mean it’s easier to edit the footage and make it available for all screen sizes.
In some cases, you might need to apply for a location permit or secure an agreement, but we regularly handle this for all of our clients. It’s also a good idea to sort out insurance because it protects you against costs.
We also have all of the necessary insurance, but we will let you know if you need any.
It always helps us get a good idea of what you’re expecting from the production service, so we always request a brief from our clients. However, if you’re unsure how to develop a basic story, we can help you every step of the way.
The message, story, props and schedule are all central parts of the process, but once we have a general idea of the scope, we can put a brief together with you.
Creative ideation is the most critical part of the filmmaking process because it will define your project’s success. We have to consider your budget, story and how you’ll use our production services, but once we have that information, we will work with you to throw some exciting ideas around.
Creative development involves looking at all the ideas and choosing the best one that suits your budget and goals. Once you focus on an idea, we can expand that into a complete story and discuss how our pre-production services can help.
Whether it’s a corporate video, animated film or branded content, this phase enables everyone to explore their ideas and incorporate the budget and timeline.
The script is essentially a blueprint for all crew and cast members to follow. When each person knows what they’re meant to be doing, it’s much easier to maintain a collaborative approach and have all members share the responsibility.
Scriptwriting is very different from regular writing, and our team knows how to align the tone of voice and essential story elements to your objectives.
Production planning involves all other elements that might not seem as significant as the creative process, but it is. Everything from scheduling to organising the crew and cast is essential, and our team will always make the planning phase headache free.
Whether you’re making a corporate video or something quirky, we know we can deliver the best production service for your budget. As a relatively young company, we focus on creating immersive visual content that takes your brand to new heights and meets your objectives.
