Feedback summary: 

The videos that Ferrari Productions produced were well-received, with significant number of page views and clicks. The team kept the projects moving, and on budget, through constant communication. Their creativity and positive attitude made them a great partner.

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 the CEO of Barrel O'Monkeyz, a marketing agency that supports companies in the sports and active lifestyle space.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ferrari Productions?

I needed help developing two different video projects for one of my clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

My client, Mobile Edge, was using a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the launch of a new product. Ferrari created 3 minute mini-commercial to support the release of the CORE Gaming Backpack. The process for creating this video was complex, involving multiple location shoots and a long editing process.

The other project Ferrari worked on was to create a series of product review videos. These were very short, probably one minute in length. The series spells out the product features and benefits. The process involved developing a storyboard, copywriting, and editing.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with Phil (president, Ferrari Productions) and one other team member.

How did you come to work with Ferrari Productions?

I was referred to Phil through someone in my network. I have several different companies that I could work with, so I evaluate them based on their design, pricing, and if they’re easy to work with. I chose to work with Ferrari because of Phil’s creativity and his ability to provide a great studio to do the filming.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from February–August 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Ferrari did a great job at creating a video that drew people in to the Kickstarter campaign. The number of clicks on the video was very favorable as was the time people spent on the page, which indicates people watched the whole thing. They created 10 product review videos that can now be found on YouTube or Google, so I'm very pleased with everything they did for me. I’m definitely planning on working with Phil again soon.

How did Ferrari Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic. No matter what time I asked them to do things, they got the work done. They always delivered things in a timely manner.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s really important to me that my vendors fit culturally with Barrel O'Monkeyz. Phil was a really nice fit because of his easy-going and can-do manner. He balances trying to move the project forward while keeping what the client wants in mind.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If I had to name one area for improvement, I'd love to have more editing options in creating videos. They do a good job of editing the footage so that it marries up to the storyboard, but it would be good to have multiple options from different styles.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be very clear on your goal and the direction you want the video to go. Ferrari will take the time to understand your business but the more upfront you can be, the better your results will be.

Feedback summary: 

The videos are used in national trainings and have spurred new product adoption. Ferrari Productions invests time upfront to internalize objectives, which allows them to identify tthe ideal medium for a concept. They are detail oriented, sensitive to deadlines, and have stand-out expertise.

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 the Director of Life Sciences and Healthcare for Bluewater, a learning and business consulting company. I support life science and healthcare verticals and manage a number of our key accounts in those fields as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ferrari Productions?

We needed to communicate course material and product knowledge in a visually pleasing way, and video seemed to be the right way to handle that content, in order to produce the intended behavior.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’ve worked with them on about 20 different programs, which can involve 20+ components and individual pieces. They’ve done live-action, voice-over narration, script development, animation, and software product simulation for us.

They support me with the overall strategic concepts. I bring them business objectives and the things we need to accomplish, and then they decide what medium or technique fits with those things best. Then, they help structure the product and get us to where we need to be. They also do all the editing.

What is the team composition?

I only work with the executive producer, Phil, but I know that he coordinates with his own team.

How did you come to work with Ferrari Production?

We were introduced through a mutual business friend. I definitely liked their approach to instructional design for video, and how it can be applied to various educational and learning courses.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $10,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from 2015 until 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Usability was greatly increased for a software product after the launch. Our end client was able to train at 25 different offices in the U.S., which amounted to about 500 people in two weeks. It really helped provide a lot of training an adoption of the new software.

How did Ferrari Production perform from a project management standpoint?

There weren't any details left untouched. Even when Phil had a planned vacation, everything was covered.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I like how they assess the actual business and behavioral outcomes upfront, prior to suggesting tactics. They really think a lot about strategy and what the goals are. Before diving into the “how," they think about the “why.”

Phil was instrumental in helping craft the solution based on the intended business outcomes. He was able to use his expertise to really shapes the courses to make an impact. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

There aren’t any at this time. I would hire him again.

Any advice for potential customers?

I would say that establishing a good communication flow and weekly status meeting would maximize their expertise.
