Frequently Asked Questions
After placing your order will be asked to schedule a call with one of our marketing experts, to discuss the goals, content and style of your videos.
On this call, your assigned project manager will collect the information needed to provide you with a Strategic Marketing Overview that includes a strategic brief, recommended editorial schedule, content outlines of your videos, and style suggestions.
We’ll also get an address to deliver your RDV Gear Kit to and you’ll be asked to schedule your first remote recording session at this time.
Remote Directed Videos can be up to 3 minutes long in the final, delivered edit. More minutes can be purchased for an additional fee.
Our goal is to deliver a ready-to-deploy video within a maximum of 7 days after your remote recording session.
However, the estimated time of delivery varies depending on the length and complexity of your videos, as well as the time spent on revisions.
We understand that sometimes you can’t wait a week for a video, and are happy to do our best to accommodate for special circumstances.
Our video review and collaboration platform makes it easy to get involved in the editing process and help guide the direction of your videos.
You’ll be invited to provide your feedback at multiple key stages of the editing process, with up to two free rounds of revisions at each stage.
Before your first recording session, we’ll send you a Pre-Shoot Prep Kit with:
- Instructions for choosing a location (your director can help you choose between locations during the recording session.)
- How to setup and position your tripod and connect the external microphone.
- And other advice to ensure a productive and performative recording session.
Most videos are captured within 30 minutes, though the first recording session with a subject may take a little longer.
You’ll get better and faster with practice, too!
