1. Discovery

The first step, and the most detailed oriented.  Again, focusing on communication and opening up every available line of communication for both teams.  This is everything from the first consult to see what your message is, brainstorming, video concept development and planning – ensuring all of our ducks are in alignment before moving to pre-production.  Its about our video production team understanding exactly what clients wants to achieve with their video, what are their video marketing goals and were is the final platform it will be presented online or commercially.


2. Pre-Production

The second step is where we begin to communicate the creative side – the outline for the video production, visual planning, scouting locations, scripting, etc. It’s really the foundation of your build.  This part of the video production process gives you a full layout in an outline format (Video Treatment) of how the video is going to look, any graphics, texts or music score also.  Before we film, you know what everything is going to look like and this is the most involved part of the production process.


3. Video Production

Basically the "main coarse" of the production process this is where we do the video magic.  We bring our 4K Cameras onto the set, lighting, professional audio, aerial video equipment and everything else that makes our motion filming and unique cinema style come to life.  Production is the moment where all the time and energy spent in the pre-production and discovery takes flight and turns into something dynamite and head turning.


4. Post Production

As we go into post production video editing you see all the filming and production process come together into a time line format. So, editing the animation, motion graphics, music research, the voice over or that might be done beforehand – but anything we’ve filmed on set for the production days needs to be edited. Editing can take anything from 1-3 weeks to be completed, we strive between 7-14 days but larger shoots sometimes take a longer time to color enhance and edit. 


5. Video Distribution & Upload

The final stage of the process – getting your video in front of the demographic who need to see it! What channels and platforms do you want the marketing videoto be on? To be on social channels, the video will need to be specially edited to these facebook/Instagram specifications too.  We always come up with a plan to stretch this video content across all the platforms in the discovery and pre-production so your 1-2 videos can be 5-7 for your marketing team.

Communication Is Truly Key

Our main focus for every video production we film is communication!  From start to finish, our creative team guides you through the information processes and learns about what makes your company or brand tick.  Our project management process keeps you in the loop 100% from start to finish.  We answer our emails, pick up our phones and of coarse even indulge in a text message if sometime is urgent.  Our clients are our "partners" and we won't sleep until your production is a cinematic masterpiece.


Viral Video Marketing

Viral videos can be useful on so many video marketing and online platforms.  When delivered properly with a solid production value, viral videos can have a significant impact on your target audience not only as a marketing piece but for entertainment content.  Hilo Motion Pictures creates viral videos and marketing pieces for any type of business or platform.

Company Profile Video

Company and business profile videos are the most creative way to tell your brand or products story.  Clients want to know who you are.  Creating trust for your brand and company is one of the best ways to market your company through content and video which allows your demographic.

Product Branding Video

With the awesome tagline ‘Move With Confidence' and an amazing actor or talent narrator, this product branding video for Hexiflex manages to be both informative and humorous at the same time.

Crowdfunding Videos

Whether you’re an brand, athlete, musician, artist, world traveler, or thrill seeker, our creative team would love to join you and your dream on your next cinematic adventure.  From the thrill of creative competition and drive to the visual imagery that epically portrays an brands composition, our creative team captures the essence of what makes your company unique and delivers a film quality adaptation that represents your distinct qualities.

Aerial Video Marketing

With this increased demand for video content, finding unique new sources of material is becoming increasingly difficult, especially content that can “elevate” a brand over its competitors.  Drone based aerial video gives a unique perspective on the world and access to places that the viewer wouldn’t otherwise be able to see.

Location Videos

To promote a tourist destination, city or to advertise a region in its entirety, your company requires a marketing medium that is attractive, fresh and captivating.  

Short of visiting a destination or city, an online attraction video is the best way to advertise a location. Video gives your online visitors a brief yet detailed insight into your attraction and could potentially see the difference between browsing and booking.


Extraordinary Filming Styles

Adding Hyper-lapse, true aerial filming and advanced cinema based styles in all of our video productions allows us to create remarkable video content for your brand, company or product.  Our Creative Team makes the process very fast and efficient working with your teams to create your cinematic video production masterpiece.  Again, communication is always key in video production, and we offer 24-7 support on all projects.  You can even call the owner "TIM" at 3am to discuss your visual needs!  (True Story).
