By getting the detail right in pre-production, it gives a film the best opportunity to realise its potential. This phase includes researching, deciding on production style, writing a script, organising locations and scheduling.
Biomedia creates a production report that evolves with the project and acts as a blue print for the process. Having a detailed document is critical to ensure success in the production process.
The production phase is where all footage is filmed, voice overs and music are recorded. Depending on the project, Biomedia will have soundtracks written and performed by professional musicians specifically for each project
Acquiring high quality footage is a critical step to ensuring a professional look. This is achieved through quality cinematography and professional film equipment.
Post-production is the phase where all the material comes together. This phase involves editing, motion graphics, animation, sound mixing and mastering.
The editing phase is broken down into a rough edit and final edit. Biomedia advises clients to be involved in the rough edit phase to ensure the messages and content are in sync with the communication objectives.
