Feedback summary: 

The videos have satisfied the project requirements and have been successful in business’ efforts. The Black Box Productions team’s defining traits are their flexibility and attention to detail. Their willingness to create strong work in a timely manner has earned them a continued engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the Manager of Creative Studios, Mattel.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Black Box Productions?

We needed video and content production for several of our company’s campaigns.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

To begin each project, we brief Black Box Productions on our needs and they come back to us with proposals. After this, they take us through their approach and incorporate our feedback. Once the pre-production process is complete, they launch into developing the content and receive our insight along the way. In the post-production sessions, they give us a rundown on the evolution of the project and deliver the final product.

What is the team composition?

We work directly with Josh (Co-Founder, Black Box Productions) and Ben (Producer, Black Box Productions).

How did you come to work with Black Box Productions?

We’d engaged with Black Box Productions in the past and had been delighted with their work. For this project, we had an information meeting and got to know more about their production skills. From there, their team bid on our projects and won a majority of them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together toward the end of 2017 and the engagement is ongoing. We just wrapped up a few projects with them and have a few more coming up.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The results are confidential but our internal team is very satisfied with their work. The campaigns they’ve worked on have been successful for our business.

How did Black Box Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

One of the main reasons we continue to work with Black Box Productions is the way they manage projects. We primarily communicate through email and they’re very open to feedback. They adjust their approach if our needs change and they keep us involved in their process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Black Box Productions prioritizes taking care of the customer. They’re easy to work with and are dedicated to delivering the best possible work. Additionally, their team is nimble and flexible.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We have no issues with their approach—they should continue with what they’re doing.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure your goals for deliverables are clear. We went into deep detail with Black Box Productions and ensured they understood the creative vision we wanted. Having a list of tangible requirements makes the process easier.
