  • Research ideas and strategies into how to produce your video.

  • Hire Actors for On-Camera and Voiceover performances.

  • Provide responsive support and hands-on creative care throughout the process.

Pre-Production

Professional productions require time

and preparation before the cameras start rolling!

In Pre-Production, TinDragon Media will coordinate the important details to ensure each production runs smoothly, safely and efficiently.

We handle the big and small details like:

  • Hiring and onboarding Production Crew for large scale productions.

  • Coordinate shoot days and develop schedule to film scenes, interviews and time-sensitive events.

  • Research the subject matter and prepare questions for interviews (Documentary Format).

  • Rehearsals with talent for their scenes (Scripted Format).

  • Connect with vendors for equipment rentals, props and other essentials for your production.

 

  • Scout and book locations with the necessary permits and insurance. Plan travel and lodging accordingly for out-of-town productions.

Project Timeline

Every production is unique! There is no "cookie cutter" or "one size fits all" approach  to telling your story. 

 

The timeline for most video projects range from 4-8 weeks from the

concept to final delivery. This can vary based on scope and deadlines.

Expedited deadlines may incur an increase of TinDragon's service rates. 

Producing content that speaks to you will take a little extra time and care.

Budgets

Professional productions don't have to be as expensive as a Hollywood blockbuster.

At TinDragon Media, we value our skill, labor and people, as everyone puts 110% into what they do from Development to Post. So it takes real money to make an amazing story. 

 

A Production Budget depends on creative concept, talent involved, and resources available. Proposals include an estimate based on number of hours, the labor and the creative concept. If scope of work changes throughout the process, time and costs may change.

 

Our full-service productions range between $10k-50K.  We can accommodate lower budgets on occasion for those that align with our TinDragon values -

or just requiring an individual service like Filming or Editing.
