The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for an internationally recognized yoga teacher. I do a little bit of everything, since we are a very small company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Cut Canvas Creative?

We first worked with Cut Canvas to create a short video about Janet and her teaching approach and personal story. We later continued this work, filming virtual courses and several promo videos for albums and upcoming events.

What were your goals for this project?

For the original video, we wanted powerful visuals with movement and energy. We wanted to capture Janet's adventurousness, wisdom, and the heart she brings to what she offers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We knew others who had worked with Cut Canvas, and we loved their work. It felt like a fit and it spoke for itself.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We tend to work intuitively and to bring a playfulness into the collaboration. Brett (lead and founder of Cut Canvas) chose to meet by the water and explored from there. We later did an interview with Janet, to get her natural storytelling to shine.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They brought just the right mix of guidance and expertise plus willingness to see what emerged. After the filming, we further clarified the final vision and iterated toward the complete video.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

This was our first project of this kind (especially with regard to the bio video). It set the tone for future projects as we sought to tell stories through beautiful video. We want to evoke a sense of what each training or class is through video, and this set the foundation for our future work in this regard.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

excellent! professional, collegial, and fun. We've continued to work together over the years, which exemplifies how pleased we are.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were most impressed by the quality of the footage and the creative editing. But it also matters that the team at Cut Canvas is professional, kind, and in integrity. The clarity of communication and dedication to excellence has kept us collaborating with them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything.

Feedback summary: 

Cut Canvas Creative delivered impressive services that ensured the production of a satisfying video that fulfilled the requirements precisely. The team provided guidance that streamlined the project’s execution. They were responsive and flexible, which led to an affable and productive partnership.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a director at SecondMuse, which is an international innovation agency. We offer entrepreneurship, social, and environmental programs addressing great needs around the world. We use storytelling to advance policy changes and bring new funding into different social and environmental areas. We work with groups of innovators around the world to help empower their social innovations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Cut Canvas Creative?

We had a program that worked with 12 innovators from around the world on how to use our oceans as resources to improve nutrition around the world, create new, sustainable livelihoods, and protect water spaces. We had a particular congregation of entrepreneurs in Tanzania and wanted to tell the stories of their work in different areas.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Cut Canvas Creative came with us to Tanzania and created a 6–10 minutes, 360-degree VR video that told the stories of our program's innovators, their challenges, and the opportunities in East Africa.

Brett (Founder & Principal) supported us during the preparatory phase. He helped us with creating a script that worked with a short documentary and securing the equipment that we needed. He used 360-degree VR equipment and filmed for about 10 days. Cut Canvas Creative used a VR camera attached to a drone as well as a rigged, underwater 360 VR camera.

He promoted the content through Cut Canvas Creative’s communication channels and partnerships. Also, their team put together a small event for us at World Oceans Day in New York City.

What is the team composition?

We worked with Brett directly.

How did you come to work with Cut Canvas Creative?

We wanted to work with them because of their work with different media and attention to environmental issues around oceans. They’ve done great environmental work, telling stories of different challenges for ocean-related animals and conservation measures. Their team was able to lead the underwater filming that was required for this project. Cut Canvas was a great fit for this role.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $25,000–$30,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started with Cut Canvas Creative in February 2017 and the project was completed in July 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They were incredibly good at delivering to the specific deliverable. We were incredibly satisfied with the end result.

We were overall incredibly impressed by our collaboration with Cut Canvas Creative. They were flexible teammates and adapted to trying circumstances. It was a pleasure to work on the ground with them.

After the filming was complete, they were supportive in promoting and amplifying the video through written content and other partnerships.

How did Cut Canvas Creative perform from a project management standpoint?

As far as attentiveness, they were in the top 5% of vendors. It was usually within a matter of hours that Brett responded. He was proactive, organized, and took leadership in areas that weren’t our company’s strong points. Brett was not only a great teacher but also a facilitator as we went through this process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was an overall enjoyable experience to work with Cut Canvas Creative. It didn’t feel like work to collaborate with them. Rather, it felt like an opportunity to do an amazing project together. It can feel like there’s a divide when working with contractors, but we aligned quickly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They were a pretty small team and we were clear upfront about the deliverables. It was a bit trickier to push them to go a bit above and beyond. Be clear upfront with the deliverables because they will deliver to exactly what was agreed upon.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

BRIDGE Housing is a leading nonprofit developer, owner and manager of affordable housing. We serve low-income families and seniors in CA, OR and WA. As VP of Communications, I oversee external and internal communications activities, including media relations, special events, social media, crisis communications and other initiatives.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Cut Canvas Creative?

We have hired Cut Canvas Creative for a number of video production projects, including a tribute video, a profile of a resident and in-depth mini-documentaries about one of our most complex developments (St. Joseph's).

What were your goals for this project?

For the St. Joseph's videos, we aimed to tell the story of an extremely complex development, and to use the video to celebrate our partners and the way BRIDGE worked to overcome multiple challenges and achieve desired community benefits. The goal was to shine a light on BRIDGE's unique ability to tackle complexity.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Cut Canvas Creative came to BRIDGE via a mutual contact and recommendation. One of our founders and emeritus board members, who also works in the real estate development field, had successfully worked with Cut Canvas Creative in the past. We reviewed the Cut Canvas portfolio, met with them and developed a solid rapport while building out the video concept. While BRIDGE Housing has worked with other video vendors, we were interested in branching out and trying a fresh approach. I made the decision to select Cut Canvas based on a) responsiveness and client-centric philosophy, b) streamlined, easy process, c) good value, d) proven results.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

Cut Canvas developed the framework for the video, including interview questions for each of the seven subjects, plus an overall outline and production/location schedule. They organized the complex story into feasible pieces so that we were able to achieve all shooting and interviews in a relatively short time (two days). Cut Canvas was responsible for all filming, sound, titles and editing. The editing, frankly, was probably the most difficult part, as there was a great deal of excellent footage to draw from. We started off planning a shorter, 4-5 minute video, but during the editing process, Cut Canvass suggested creating a longer, more fulsome companion video to tell more of the story. We loved this idea and were able to allocate additional budget, so we ended up with two terrific videos. I contributed initial guidance plus feedback and some still photos that were incorporated into the final videos.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

There were two people from Cut Canvass who worked directly with us during the creation of these videos: Brett Loveman and a production assistant. They did a terrific job of working with the location contacts and the interview subjects to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. The team worked with me on several rounds of feedback; they were quick and responsive. And the editing was fantastic--Cut Canvas Creative really understood the goals and they created a solid first cut right out of the gate.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our internal and external stakeholders (staff, partners) were very pleased with the final versions of these videos. They will be useful going forward as we outreach to new constituents, including potential donors, development partners and jurisdictions where BRIDGE might work in the future.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Cut Canvas Creative did a stellar job of managing workflow. We communicated regularly and clearly, and the process was quite efficient. No special tools, just email, phone calls, texts and documents/spreadsheets. They were very easy to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I found Cut Canvas Creative to be very client-centered. That is, they listened carefully to my thoughts about the project and they accurately translated that into a high-quality video production that achieved the desired goals and budget. I have worked with other vendors who try to impose their vision or style on a project, but Cut Canvas really puts their clients first.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I was very satisfied with the process and result. Wouldn't change a thing.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

The CutCanvas team has been extremely professional during the whole project: from the briefing phase, through the pre-production preparation, to the filming and the post-production of the materials.

In particular, CutCanvas offered unsolicited suggestions on possible improvements and creative ideas to add to the narrative, to the individual scenes and the marketing positioning of the final products (all were eventually adopted).

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

The level or preparation, attention to detail and the continuous dialogue we had with the Cut Canvas team were absolutely instrumental to the quality of the work and the success of the project.

Cut Canvas did a great job of educating our team on what was required For a solid video production. They brainstormed, created a shotlist, and set clear expectations for the shoot.

On the day of the shoot their team was professional, patient, and incredible at directing our talent who had never modeled before. After the shoot they even sped up the timeline of file delivery to meet our changing needs.

I also value their clarity and organizational skills around production. This helped the shoot flow freely.

Are there any areas for improvement?

In an effort to please our company, I think they allowed us to initially add too many shots to the shotlist. Had they been more firm and asked us to reduce they may not have felt as much pressure on set. That being said, I'm grateful for their willingness and optimism to accomplish everything we wanted to try to accomplish.
