How Online Film Director Can Help Your Brand

Online film production has the power to attract, connect and convert your target audience into raving fans and avid followers of your brand. These people will carry, spread and amplify your brand’s message and ultimately grow your online following. Visual content is so much more engaging than written content. 80 % of online users will watch a video whereas only 20 % will read an article. Our team are experts at creating professional and powerful videos for you to use online.

As always, we create custom packages to suit the digital media needs of your brand. Based on your vision and aim, we can professionally execute video production, video content for any social platform that offers video advertising and even pre-roll video ads so you can always be right on your audience’s radar. Please take a look at our online film production portfolio and see if it gets your creativity flowing.

The film director’s role is crucial to the success of any film and extends through every stage of its creation. At Captiv8, every film director is fully experienced in each stage and has the knowledge and the range of skills to create the film you want.

The director’s main aim is to take your ideas and concepts to create a film that will totally fulfil your aims. Whether that’s to promote a product, publicise an event or just to raise the profile of your company, we’ll do our utmost to make sure your wishes are carried out and create the greatest possible impact.

What Are a Film Director’s Responsibilities at Every Stage

In many respects, the film director is probably the most important person involved in the making of your film, having overall responsibility for ensuring you’re totally satisfied with the outcome. That responsibility extends to each stage of the film’s creation:

  • 1. Pre-production. The director collaborates on the writing of the script, selecting actors and conducting rehearsals. Shooting schedules are developed and the overall look of the film is set out, either in great detail at the start or allowed to develop as the film progresses, whichever is more appropriate.
  • 2. Production. All lighting, audio equipment and cameras are set up and positioned to give the desired effect. Framing and tracking of shots are reviewed and sets are properly designed and configured. Most importantly, actors are given instructions and guidance so that the tone of their performance matches what is needed. Completed takes will be viewed for suitability and re-done if not satisfactory.
  • 3. Post-production. The use of video filming has increased the director’s involvement in this stage of the process. The ability to digitally manipulate images has resulted in a video director role to edit the resulting film and provide input over its sound and visual effects.

Using a Film or Video Director in Sydney to Create the Film You Want

With overall responsibility to translate your needs into the film you want, the role of the director cannot be understated. The director has to have the technical skills to create the film, the ability to communicate with and organise the film crew and actors to get the best out of them, motivational skills for all involved and an artistic flair to create the shots that really count.

The varied nature of a film shoot, with the involvement of numerous people and the challenges of creating indoor and outdoor sets, often under difficult conditions, requires the director to be fully organised and able to adapt to changing circumstances. Ours are used to creating films for all sorts of purposes, with different formats and aims, and are well able to deliver whatever is needed.

Every one of our directors will accept full responsibility for all aspects of the making of the film and will deliver the project on schedule, within budget and to at least meet your expectations. That will be achieved despite the often frantic pace of a film set and conflicting aspects and technical difficulties that may arise.

It’s the environment we work in, and there’ll be no excuses if problems arise, just an honest commitment to producing a great film. That’s because we’re used to delivering films that really achieve their aims.
