WORKFLOW

Working with DF Media has never been easier. Our workflow consists of 5 core stages: development, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. Each of these steps serves a unique purpose with the overarching goal to get to the next step and ultimately on to distribution. Each stage varies in length, and various roles suit different stages.

We believe in creating a quality finished product which requires us to do comprehensive research centred around your unique needs. Each project is tailor-made to fulfill the client’s objective, therefore telling the right story in the right way is essential.

1. DEVELOPMENT

Drafting the creative brief is the first stage in the process. We collect your ideas and summarize them into a digital project outline that includes but is not limited to the project background, objective, critical audience, and video length.

2. PRE-PRODUCTION

Once the client gives the project the green-light, DF Media will create scripts, storyboards, set designs, shot lists, lighting arrangements, depending on the project needs.

3. PRODUCTION

DF Media begins onsite shooting/filming at various locations to obtain footage necessary to complete the project.

4. POST-PRODUCTION

This stage of the process takes place in-house and consists of video editing, sound engineering and colouring.

5. DISTRIBUTION

The final stage of the process varies depending on the need of the client and typically involves delivery of the final product to the client for online marketing or national film distribution.

WHAT SETS US APART?

VISUALIZE

We take your vision, and unearth every last bit of detail on paper to get a clear idea of the final product you are looking for. This process gives us the foresight to see the objective, and provide an innovative storyline through visual representation.

CONCEPTUALIZE

Now that we know what you want, we get to work to obtain the right peripherals to shoot your video. This is where we also fine tune the initial idea, to ensure the final product meets client needs.

MATERIALIZE

MATERIALIZE – After the pre-production is complete, we move from the chalkboard to production. Our team shoots the content and delivers footage to our editing team that turns raw footage into a final product. This stage is also where we hand pick the right aesthetic for your video.

DELIVER

Once the video is complete, we send you the first draft and await your feedback. Feedback helps us to calibrate and shape the video to ensure that our client needs are met.
