BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Lone Drone Solutions is a drone-based imagery and data collection company, providing a variety of innovative services and solutions using cutting-edge equipment and technologies. I am the President & CEO of LDS.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Key West Video Inc.?

We were asked to complete aerial imagery and video for a large home builder, who wanted to display the work in an edited video in their presentation centres. We hired Key West Video to provide ground videography and professional post-production services.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to help the client tell a better and more complete story of their communities through an all-encompassing, compelling video.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Key West Video has requested our services a number of times in the past, and since we know they do great work, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to have them work with us this time.

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

They worked with us in understanding what the purpose of the video was, as well as having similar requests to ours in the past which helped in the discovery process.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They provided a videographer for the shooting itself, and an editor for the post-production work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Within weeks of completion, our client had successfully sold all of the homes through their presentation centre.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

While our client had a number of revisals that were periodically sent to us, Key West's editor was very quick to respond and assist with all of our client's requests in a timely fashion.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have extensive knowledge about video post-production and can make changes to work very quickly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything can always be done faster, but we were very satisfied with their efforts every step of the way. Ultimately we wanted quality and not an unorganized and rushed product, so we were very happy with what we got.

Digital Marketing Manager at integrate.ai -- a Toronto tech scale-up.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Key West Video Inc.?

Social media video filming, project management, editing, and interviewing.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to produce a video showcasing our People and the culture we've built at integrate.ai.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I've worked with Keywest at a previous company. I've always found them to be very professional life-savers. They have a knack for interviewing people they've never met before. They were in our office for half a day and managed to pull together a series of videos that truly captured who we are.

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

They were 3 interview-style videos with 3-4 subjects per video.

  • Set design
  • Subject coaching & interviewing
  • Broll
  • Filming, editing, etc.
  • They provided background music and graphics.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

I worked with a project manager and had an on-site producer on the day of. All in, I worked with 3 folks at the Keywest officer but had a dedicated contact. It was nice to know the names/faces of all the people who were touching my project but also great to just have 1 point of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback from the team was great. It's rare to meet a vendor capable of capturing and telling our story well. Engagement on our LinkedIn page went up 400%+ during this particular campaign. We've been asked to have our video featured on other channels as well.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Simple communication, emails were answered quickly and the videos were delivered on schedule. They got the venue before I did!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was blown away by Keywest's quality of work. They're a talented bunch, I've worked with them large projects previously. They put their all into every project, no matter how small.

Are there any areas for improvement?

This is a small thing but we learned a lot on the day of the shoot --I would've loved to get that guidance ahead of time to help make the day run more smoothly.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the National Marketing and Communications Senior Manager at Grant Thornton LLP, a leading accounting and business advisory firm providing audit, tax and advisory services. We are dedicated to helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Key West Video Inc.?

In 2019 we were launching a community initiative featuring organizations that were having a positive impact on the communities in which they live and work. We wanted to share their inspiring stories and capture the photos and short videos of a representative of the organizations that would be featured on our website. Our first community was PEI. We did not have the internal capabilities to produce this type of video or to capture the type of photography that we wanted for our website. This required someone to travel to each organizations to take unique and engaging photography.

What were your goals for this project?

For select organizations, we wanted a short video (2-3 minutes) that would capture their story, as well as capturing insights from other organizations (30-60 second video).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The firm has used Key West Video for much of its video requirements. They were able to provide what we required within our timeline and budget and are always great to work with. They have worked on related community-focused initiatives and this was a good fit.

 

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

We had identified community organizations that we wanted to feature in the long video format (2-3 minutes).  We provided Key West with a creative brief that outlined our objectives for the video, the story we wanted to tell and the types of interview quesitons we wanted asked. Our goal was to capture the video at the community organization's site. We outlined the expectations for community organizations for their video and photo shoot. Key West visisted each site to capture interviews and B-roll.

Key West was also invovled in photo shoots for additional community organizations and was able to capture footage around 1-2 key questions that could be used in short video insights online. Further they attended our live community event to capture video to create a short video of the celebration of those community organizations to be share internally and externally.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

The vedor provided regular and consistent feedback on the process and timing. Videos were drafted and shared, allowing feedback for finalizng. Multiple images were provided, allowing for final selection.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have successfully launched our website featuring the community organizations. The photography is engaging and captivating. The video's effectively capture the stories of these community organizations. The images are impactful in helping drive social media to view the website.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Projects with Key West run smoothly and there is consistent and valued feedback and interaction with the team.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team is always responsive. They provide positive ideas and feedback. They act professionally and are always effective in engaging those they are filming or taking photos with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, there are none.

BACKGROUND

For what projects/services did your company hire Key West Video Inc.?

To create and produce videos for our retiring Partners.

What were your goals for this project?

To create meaningful and engaging videos that could be shared with a wide audience and used as a keepsake for our retiring Partners.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I have worked with Key West many times over the past eight years and always call them first when we're looking to create new videos.

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

The project involved creating 10 videos, from across the country, and for each video, Key West interviewed between 3-4 people, created some amazing B-roll of the various locations and cut it all together into 10, 2-3 minute highly engaging videos.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

For this project, an editor and project manager was assigned to help schedule the interviews, keep the videos on track, take a first edit and then work with us on any remaining edits. Having one contact person is highly helpful when you're trying to juggle many different schedules and videos.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The videos turned out fantastic, and we had great feedback from both our retiring Partners, and others who attended the event where the videos were shown. Key West has worked on this project for us for many years and each year, they come with new ideas to help keep the videos fresh.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very effective. I love working with Stuart and his team. They're always friendly, very responsive and make sure they're clear on what we're trying to achieve at the beginning of the project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Having worked with many vendors over the years, there are many things I find impressive about Key West. They're extremely reliable and I trust them completely. I've worked with them on many, many projects and they've always met our deadlines and come in on budget. They never take our relationship for granted, and are always coming to the table with new creative ideas.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, I've always been very happy with them and their work, but I know if there ever was an issue that I would be able to bring it up and they would resolve it right away.

Key West Video Inc. is an easy partner to work with, and they offer great value for the price. In addition to having strong communication skills, their willingness to help has made for an enjoyable experience. They are committed to getting the work done in order to satisfy the project requirements.

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 head of sales at ChangeConnect.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Key West Video Inc.?

We wanted a stronger online presence because what we had wasn’t enough. We wanted to add a video component to it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Key West Video Inc. helps with video production. When we have events, they come in and do event videos to recap the day, which we use as a part of our advertising. They’ve shot 10 of our events. The second component of their work has been our vlog series, which they’re now working on finalizing.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with a couple of their shooters and a couple of their administrative teammates. 

How did you come to work with Key West Video Inc.?

We found them at a tradeshow. We picked them because we watched a video that they produced and it was on point. Additionally, their pricing is good. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $28,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in February 2017 and we’re still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve referred other businesses to them as well, and people like their work. Key West Video Inc. is easy to work with and the price point for their work is phenomenal.

I can get a video for maybe $2,500 while other video providers quote me $25,000 for the same work. There isn’t anyone there like them. They’re not a cheap firm but for their value, they do good work.

How did Key West Video Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

I like their project management style. They have a large backlog because they’re popular. Their communication is good and on point, and they always tell me the timeline. The team had also been very helpful with planning and advice. 

The whole collaboration has been pretty flawless. We know when we’re supposed to be doing what, so it’s been a very pleasant experience. We communicate in-person and online, and they always give us clear instructions. When we do our vlogs, they always look over our script.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re willing to help. Other providers that I worked with in the past would charge me per iteration after two iterations. Key West Video Inc. wants to make sure that we get the work done and that I’m satisfied.

They never complain about too many iterations or that the feedback is irrelevant. I’m not very natural on camera so even when I went to do my vlog twice, they told me that it wasn’t a problem. Their customer service is phenomenal, and you can tell that they know what they’re doing. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have no suggestions. I really like them. We’ve had other vendors in between but we still go back to them. We like working with them and will continue to do so.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be open-minded to some of their suggestions. Sometimes you have your own idea of what you want and it might not turn out as good as you think it will. They’re the professionals and they know what’s on-trend.

They do their homework, so take their advice. As much as you want to tell them your requirements, it’s a dialogue. You’re hiring these artists for their creativity. Don’t ruin it by giving too much artistic direction.
