A Team of Video Visionaries The most advanced studio space, highest-quality equipment, and tried-and-true process all go to waste without a creative, imaginative, and dedicated team to turn your ideas into compelling videos. The team of visionaries at Abstrakt Studios truly cares about creating a strategic partnership with businesses that share our growth-focused mindset. Our team believes the most incredible storytelling comes from the smallest ideas. That’s why we bring a collaborative approach to video production. A casual comment or funny anecdote from a client can lead to a commercial or collateral video that resonates with your target audience. Award-Winning Results The most rewarding part of video production is delivering a product that we are proud of and helps our clients grow. We don’t make videos to win awards; we make them to help you spread your message to the world.

Since 2018 we’ve been honored with 16 awards, including six to date in 2021 alone.

Video and Messaging Versatility There’s no doubting the value of video marketing, but how you plan to use your video determines much of our production strategy. The objective of a TV commercial is likely to be much different than a corporate video. That’s why we conceptualize custom videos based on your needs, goals, and desires. Corporate Videos Corporate videos are an ideal way to profile your culture, vision, and services. Whether it’s a “Why Us” video or testimonial, Abstrakt Studios ensures your message is highlighted in an appealing way that drives interest from potential clients or prospective employees.

Set yourself apart from competitors with videos that balance story, strategy, and vision. In-House Animated Video Production Using animation is an incredibly effective way to make complex information easily digestible for audiences. When you’re looking to demonstrate how your company solves problems, explain the customer journey, illustrate proprietary processes, or tell your story, animation just makes sense. Abstrakt Studios’ in-house team of animators uses animation to bring real-life messaging to customers’ screens. A Proven Production Process Our five-step process was developed through years of experimentation and learning what did and didn’t connect with audiences while creating videos that captured our company vision and culture. Once we mastered our own messaging, we knew it was time to use our process to help our clients grow their businesses. Creative Discovery Every video starts as an idea. The steps you take to flesh those ideas out play a vital role in determining the success of your video. The Abstrakt Studios team works with you to learn your backstory and crucial information to align our capabilities with your expectations. During the first step, we determine how you plan to use your video, how long it should be, who you’re trying to reach, messaging, and the end goal of your production. Once we have a clear understanding, we brainstorm creative ways to bring your ideas to life. Preproduction and Planning After determining the creative aspects of your project, the next step is to begin making those ideas a reality. Our team tackles a wide range of activities, including: Budgeting Scheduling Casting Scripting Storyboarding Location scouting And much more Production Once all the planning elements are accounted for and ready to shoot, it’s time to get your story on camera.

Whether you have a big sale to announce or want to build brand recognition, TV commercials remain one of the best options available. We have the experience and industry knowledge required to determine the optimal visual and audible messaging and strategy to reach your targets. Post-Production Once shooting has ended, it’s time to turn raw footage into an eye-catching, informative, and engaging video. Some clients love to take a hands-on approach during this step, while others trust us to turn their vision into video. The Abstrakt Studios team offers supervised and unsupervised post-production reviews, allowing you to be as involved in the process as you want to be. During post-production, our team handles: Editing Color correction Grading Music Sound effects Reveal and Repeat Never has the phrase “save the best for last” been more accurate.
