Feedback summary: 

The team’s expertise, flexibility, and openness resulted in an excellent partnership. They consistently met requirements and delivered sound advice, even in the face of software updates that necessitated production changes.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the e-procurement manager for the purchasing department at Columbia University Teachers College.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Indigo Productions?

We started implementing a new e-procurement platform and wanted to create tutorial videos for our users. Our previous production company wasn’t meeting our needs, so we wanted to look for someone new.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created four videos in the first phase, but we’re going to develop more now that we’ve added new features to our system. The work included coming up with scripts, as well as consulting on our process and making recommendations. Their team has a long history of producing these kinds of videos, so their advice went a long way toward making the project successful.

In terms of the video content, they illustrated exactly how users could engage with our new platform. For example, one video explained how users would receive their goods or services electronically. Indigo Productions walked through the entire process visually and also provided voiceover narration.

What is the team composition?

There were three team members, including a post-production supervisor and a scriptwriter.

How did you come to work with Indigo Productions?

I received a referral from other clients at the university.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from March 2016–August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received quite a lot of positive feedback from users within our department, which is why we ended up creating four videos in the first place. People have found them helpful and are interested in coming up with other kinds of video projects as a result.

How did Indigo Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

They were always on time with anything we asked for. Our process was fairly complicated because our e-procurement platform went through some global changes—it’s used by around 30 other universities besides ours, so it’s constantly changing. The team was very flexible about updating our scripts and production details as we went along.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their flexibility and teamwork we excellent. They also have an impressive depth of experience producing these kinds of videos.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I’d strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to work with a team that engages collaboratively throughout the process.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure to have open discussion and exchange feedback as the project develops.

Feedback summary: 

Indigo’s team delivered a world-class video with superior sound engineering and editing. The team is professional and accountable and exceeded expectations across the board. Their careful pre-production and planning helped overcome numerous challenges presented on location at the opera house.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a professional opera singer. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Indigo Productions?

This was an important production, and it was critical to document it properly.  The completed video has already helped me professionally by leading to additional bookings.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Indigo handled this entire project from beginning to end. The team that they provided has filmed over 100 productions at the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, and other similar venues so I knew I was in great hands!  They used 3 broadcast-quality cameras and a sophisticated microphone setup in order to capture top caliber video and audio.  The editing was superb as well.​

​​​​​​What is the team composition?

They provided me with a video team which included three camera people, a recording engineer, as well as an editor who I worked with at the end to edit the shoot. Max (Founder, Indigo Productions) was my point person, and he was very responsive and easy to work with.

How did you come to work with Indigo Productions?

I did a Google search and read some of their reviews. I took a look at their website and some samples of their work. I had looked at a couple of places, but Indigo Productions responded to me right away. They understood exactly what I was asking for, and they had done other performances before. They sent me a sample clip of a recording of La traviata they had done previously.

How much have you invested in them?

I spent around $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from October–December 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I have received an overwhelmingly positive response from the video they did for me, and it has helped me professionally. I was happy with everything. The sound engineering and editing were highlights for me, but the video is also terrific.

How did Indigo Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent. They kept me on task, which I appreciated. Max always got back to me right away and was always available on his cell.

I worked very closely with the editor to get exactly what I wanted. It took more editing hours than what we initially budgeted, but they didn’t charge me for those hours, which was terrific.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their responsiveness and commitment were impressive. They went the extra mile. We negotiated and agreed on the goals, and then they started working so I didn’t have to worry about it as much. I really appreciated that. They took great responsibility for the project. They met and exceeded every deadline. They were really fantastic to work with.

They had a challenging situation because the theater was not equipped for the quality of work they normally do. They took that situation and really exceeded my expectations.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Feedback summary: 

Indigo Production’s consulting support and involvement designing and building an onsite studio fostered significant company growth. Staff resources are consistently talented and professional. As part of a trusted partnership, the team offers flexible support tailored to vacillating levels of need.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior video editor at a trade association. Our annual trade show facilitates business between manufacturers and retailers. We produce video programs that broadcast industry news. Our consumer-based YouTube channel features shopping tips and recipes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Indigo Productions?

Our company has worked with Indigo Productions for 25 years. They initially produced occasional one-off videos and increased to more frequent content around the time I was hired. We expanded our engagement to include larger projects when we took production in-house. We still hire indigo for certain projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our level of engagement fluctuates based on the volume of our work and staffing resources. Their support has been integral to launching and expanding our business. When we first started in-house production, our studio was limited to a small room with a green screen. Indigo’s consultants and engineers had the expertise to set up large-scale equipment when we upgraded our space. Their team designed and set up our spacious new studio. It features four cameras wired to the control room and corresponding apparatuses, as well as audio equipment. Now our team has expanded, we need less direct support.

We film with their team’s news anchor every two months. They provide a cameraman, sound engineer, and director for our quarterly talk show program. They had edited earlier episodes, but now we edit that footage in-house, it’s featured on our YouTube channel. For our annual trade show, they offer set design, filming, and editing footage. They helped us film, direct, and edit a multi-camera recipe cooking show, newer episodes have been done in-house. They also direct, edit, and produce animation for our commercials based on the scripts we provide.

What is the team composition?

The number of resources we work with varies depending on a project's specific scope. Some projects are as simple as providing news anchor talent. Conversely, they’ll provide several resources to shoot and edit entire videos.

How did you come to work with Indigo Productions?

Our business relationship started before my 10-year tenure at our company.

What is the status of this engagement?

They first started working with the organization 25 years ago. Our partnership is ongoing. They're working on animation deliverables to integrate into current projects, as well as ongoing future shoots for our news program and talk show program. Provides voice over audio for cooking show program.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Indigo’s consulting services and support building our in-house studio have definitely helped us execute more work internally. The fact that our partnership has lasted so long speaks for itself. They always provide top-notch talent. We've never had an issue with any of their resources or deliverables.

How did Indigo Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

They did an excellent job executing the entirety of our largest projects at our trade show. This work included setting up the whole stage, all the cameras, and the editing stations. Their methodology and set-up ensure that everything goes smoothly. It's fantastic.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The thing I most value about Indigo Productions is their staff, whether it is their full-time employees and their freelancers. Every time they bring in staff to work with us, they're always the best.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.
