The first step on any production is to learn about your brand, audience, and your goals for the video. Call us over-prepared, but we spend more time on the front end so that when we get onto set, we're solely focused on the shoot in front of us.
Hiatus is versatile – we can produce small table top videos with 3-5 crew members, to 30 person sets with SAG actors, company moves, and 2nd units. With our robust network here in LA, we can scale our production to fit your video's needs.
This is where your project all comes together and we take that very seriously. Being granular is key – someone, somewhere is going to nit-pick some inconsistency, so it's our job to make sure that we catch everything. Based on scope, we have talented in-house editors or will bring on our go-to Post House.
LET'S TALK FOOD
We know food. Quite well. When we delve into a recipe, we're focused on how to translate it best for screen & how to make it look the best for camera (that goes without saying).
We work with great recipe testers, who deep dive into the recipes themselves. When we bring it all together, we talk through everything from the most visual moments, the steps that sound simple but are labor intensive, or just a moment that could be a perfect stop motion sequence.
From commercial Food Stylists to seasoned Broadcast Culinary Producers, we have a great network to bring onto your next project. We are not trying to fill a space in our call sheet – this person is an essential part of the team and we bring on only the best.
Our DP's are all seasoned food shooters and know the intricacies and quirks of food. Making the food look beautiful is a well choreographed dance between the director and these two departments.
We've set up satellite kitchens just about everywhere – from the beach, to the forest, to a garage. Rest assured we know how to make this process flow efficiently no matter where we're cooking.
Food Photography / GIF
If we're going to take the time to make the food look that beautiful, we should be capturing it as stills as well, right? That's our thought, so every shoot incorporates beauty stills. We also have packages that include stand alone photographers capturing each step of the process. Oh and we love to make GIFs as well.
