We wish to encourage new talent, as it is understood that it might be quite hard to get your ideas promoted, especially if you are new to the industry.
Therefore, in case your new idea for a program is realizable but you need help in developing or submitting it, you are welcome for consultation or having the proposal being drafted by us. Then, we shall link it to our contacts.
Faithful to fair play and professional integrity, any idea submitted to us will be credited to the person who sent it in. Should this idea develop into a commission, you will be already linked to success.
We formally begin pre-production once a project has been green lit. The pre-production team finalizes preparations for production to go into effect. Financing will generally be confirmed and many of the key elements such as production members, director and technical crew are set.
The leading director and creative team break down the script into individual scenes and all the locations, props, cast members, costumes, special effects and visual effects are identified. A highly detailed schedule is prepared and arrangements are made for the necessary elements to be available to the shooting crew at the appropriate times.
At this stage, all production members are on location, following director’s orders.
For best results, we shoot using our two broadcast HD camcorders, Sony HDW-F900 and Sony HDW-730S, with Canon lenses and all the necessary ancillary equipment, such as, cranes, steady-cam, wireless audio devices etc.
Production workdays often last 14 to 18 hours, sometimes in inhospitable locations. When this phase is completed, it is customary for the production office to arrange a party, thanking all the cast and crew for their efforts.
At this final stage, the recorded material is logged in fast (raid) hard drives for the editing process.
Two High Definition nonlinear editing suites, with HD-SDI interconnection supported by Blackmagic Design equipment, are available.
The editing suites are supported by the 3D Animation and Graphics departments, where the After Effects team creates all those amazing images.
When the final production is ready, video tapes are prepared for the broadcasting industry and DVD, Blu-ray and WebTV copies for distribution.
We have been developing a quality program distribution network for each country separately. One representative or distribution company will have the rights of both the programs we produce and the ones we represent. Thus, our programs will reach a broad viewing audience more directly.
In this way, we can bypass the mighty global distribution centers that impose lower quality TV programs, such as formats of controversial quality shows. This effort of our company has found great initial response and the first independent distributors for each country individually will be announced soon.
