Actually, every business has LOTS of stories. The hard work is figuring out which are the most important to tell in order to connect with potential clients and inspire them to take action.

Every business has a story.

This is exactly what we do!

Effective video is about way more than just the visuals; it's about communication. The strategy, the intention and knowing who you want to reach and what you want them to do.

We know it’s about more than just setting up a camera — the magic happens in the STRATEGY, and working with you to tell a compelling story about what you do and the value of your work.

01.

In this call/zoom/coffee/beer meeting, we like to learn more about who you are, what you do, and how you’re hoping video can help your business or organization. We’ll talk you through our process, our approach, and see if we might be a good fit for each other!

Discovery Meeting

02.

From here we’ll send you a detailed proposal for the work we discussed. It’ll show you exactly what’s included, the cost, as well as a timeline to make sure we’re able to meet your deadline. 

Proposal

03.

To book our team for shoot dates, and to reserve our editing bandwidth, we require a signed contract and a deposit of ½ the total project amount.

Contract & Invoice

04.

In this 1-2 hour meeting we get to the heart of your business and brand to deeply understand what you do, who you serve, and what you hope to accomplish with video. From there we move to logistics, and begin scheduling shoots and discussing timeline.

Kickoff Meeting

05.

This is when we work our magic BEFORE the shoot and do everything from creating interview questions, charging batteries and packing equipment, to loading teleprompters and creating course outlines. Our goal is to take as much of the pre-work off your plate to ensure shoot day goes as smoothly as possible.

Shoot Prep

06.

Time to get this party started!

Shooting

07.

We take everything we captured back to the studio to get started on working our editing magic. This is the most time consuming part of the project, and guarantee commercial films within 6-8 wks of the final day of shooting. (We do offer a rush option for those working with a tighter deadline.)

Editing

08.

We think the more minds working on a project, the better the final outcome will be. So when we deliver your film(s), we always consider it V1. We use a sweet Vimeo review tool to collect all your thoughts in one place so our team can go back to implement.

Revisions

09.

We’ll deliver all your final films via Dropbox, so you can download, backup, and then share! We also like to share some blog posts we’ve written over the years to help guide you with some best practices when it comes to sharing films on social media. 

Publishing & Sharing

We partner with businesses and organizations in North Carolina, Maine, and beyond by helping them to create story driven, heart forward marketing films that drive awareness of their brand, spark interest in it, and help potential and past clients feel more connected to their work.

Our unique approach is client-focused and results-driven.

We know it’s about more than just setting up a camera — the magic happens in the STRATEGY, and working with you to tell a compelling story about what you do and the value of your work.

Our Process

Film Options

Signature Offerings

While we custom design films for every client/project, we’ve learned over the years that clients like guidance on what’s possible. 

Brand Story Film

This is a Big Dog Little Bed signature film for a reason! A 3-5 minute film that tells a story, with the goal of connecting emotionally with your ideal client/target market and inspiring them to take action.

Anthem Film

A 60-90 second voiceover driven film, combined with compelling visuals, that speaks to the WHY of your business. It shares what you believe, what drives your business, and what you stand for as a brand.

Course Films

Looking to share your expertise, teach others, or create a form of passive income for your brand? With a Masters in Curriculum & Design, this is Janice’s sweet spot, and one of our favorite ways to help businesses scale their impact.

Social Media Starter Kit

A collection of short social media clips that you can use throughout the year on FB, IG, your website or in email marketing. Includes a strategy session before shoot day, and 4 or 8 hours of shooting.

Janice took time to research the topics and people we were highlighting to weave together a meaningful narrative that was carried though each of the 5 films throughout our event. She has a very good eye for stunning shots and is a fantastic storyteller. Do yourself a favor and have Big Dog Little Bed make your next film.
