Visual branding duo creating Film
& Photography.

About.

Our Berlin based production studio consists of two partners (Valentina & Joseph) dedicated to creating unique contemporary visual branding for companies, institutions as well as entrepreneurs and independent individuals. We are capable of taking on projects of any scale and can expand our team to accommodate the brief if necessary. We are experienced in shooting visual branding in form of music videos, image films, documentary shorts, business/educational or social videos, interview and event coverage, as well as content for television and live streaming for online shows. Take a look at our work in the Film & Photography section to explore the variety of genres we cover and to get a feel for the scope of our stylistic approach.

We create both moving image and still content as each us is a specialist in the respective medium and by working as a team we combine our strengths to achieve results that reflect the creative brief through imagery that speaks to your target audience. We look forward to hearing your initial ideas and collaborating on your next visual branding project, whether in Berlin or abroad.

Made in Germany.

VISION

Laying the foundation for a successful brief, we brainstorm after meeting for coffee and discussing your vision for the project you have in mind. We let our creativity flow and offer options for the narrative and the aesthetics of the visual content that will represent your brand. We want to be sure that we are on the same page before we get started, so we can achieve the desired content by working together. We tailor our pitch individually to you, in order to promote your brand effectively by reaching your target audience through visuals that represent your individuality.

ACTION

Once we have the green light to go ahead with the concept, we progress to the production phase. We do a recce if a suitable outdoor location needs to be scouted, or we organise a studio for the day of the shoot. Models or actors are carefully selected that suit the brief and a make-up artist or stylist is also booked if needed. We shoot with industry standard equipment. We also have our own sound equipment and basic lighting available as part of our kit. If a bigger production is planned, we can order in any extras. All preparation comes together through our direction on the day of the shoot, guided by a moodboard and or storyboard. Our goal is to achieve the highest image quality (and sound recording) for your project, while ticking all boxes by the end of the shoot.
 

RESULTS

All components come together in the editing suite, as this is where the content gets refined. Whether film or photography, the visuals are now arranged into a narrative and edited. The former also entails adding graphics or special effects as well as colour grading the footage. Current trends in visual imagery can also be incorporated. For this final stage we use industry standard programmes and let our experience guide our decision making to shape the outcome of your project and make your visual branding stand out.
