Our Process

  • Research

    Learning about the subject is perhaps the most important step. We ask questions, observe, and do whatever it takes to learn your story so we can help you tell it. We also explore what others have done and what we can do differently for you.

  • Concept

    Creating your story should be as fun for you as it is for us. Working together, we will brainstorm and storyboard what style and language is best to make the biggest impact.

  • Setup

  • Edit
