The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

At Reliable, I was the Marketing Manager. My role was to develop content for a wide variety of products. Reliable manufacturers consumer and professional products in garment care, steam cleaning and a wide variety of other markets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Minifridge Media?

We hired Minifridge Media to produce a video for our new home steam cleaner launch.

What were your goals for this project?

For years, our commercials (for web) were missing the mark on production value, entertainment and delivering the overall product value. We wanted to create an exciting video that showcased the product in a creative way.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Over the course of a few weeks, I researched a variety of vendors. This included browsing videos reels, multiple discussions over the phone and receiving proposals. After talking to Andrew at Minifridge Media I knew his team was right for the job. He was professional and friendly and provided an explanation of his team would handle this project.

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

Once we began working together, we collaborated on the idea we spoke about during our initial discussions. They asked the right questions to find out about the product and its key attributes. They were able to create a script, hire the write actors and find the right set. After shooting, we worked together on the edits and the process was a breeze

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We worked together through the entire process. I approved the script, I was brought on set and provided feedback during shooting and was part of the post-processing process. Feedback and edits were easy for Minifridge Media to manage.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video ended up being one of our best yet. The production value, overall entertainment and feedback were all positive (internal and external).

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I worked directly with one person so that it made it easy to discuss everything from the script, to edits and more.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The creativity and talent acquisition. They were able to find ideal actors and the right set for this project. Watching the video being directed was also a real treat. Andrew has great vision and leadership that was on display during the shooting process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

My team and I were very impressed with the overall experience.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm Senior Producer at a full-service ad agency in the U.S. Under one roof we have direct mail and digital sales, content developers, media buyers, a signage print company, digital content marketing, data base developers, one of the Midwest's largest studios, full pre-and post production, and more. I drive video projects through the creative, writing and producing stages, as well as the vetting and hiring of on location crews.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Minifridge Media?

I needed a crew to do a multi-camera recording, and photographs, of a keynote presentation at a world leading company, along with documenting the activities around it, from registration, to executive panels, to interviews to cocktail hour. We also asked Minifridge to edit, on site, a day-of video featuring interviews that played at the end of the day to wrap the meeting.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed professional footage to thoroughly document the event that we could later edit into a variety of videos, from the Keynote to highlights of the day.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I researched production companies online and asked for bids based on my objectives. I contacted Minifridge based on the content of their website and the quality of their video work samples. I hired Minifridge because Andrew was knowledgeable about the industry, didn't balk at my requests, offered ideas and solutions to achieving our goals, and was willing to work within our budget.

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

I needed content to edit into several videos. Minifridge worked with me to schedule what we needed to do to work around the event schedule. We covered the event with two cameras, from b-roll to recording sessions and keynotes, to shooting interviews. In addition Andrew took the interviews while on site and turned around an edited video featuring interviews of participants that played at the end of the day; with graphics, no less.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Leading up to the shoot we had several pre-production meetings over the phone, and lots of email correspondence. Andrew was very active in helping plan the day to be sure we could capture everything we needed. He hired a crew, arranged the gear and showed up promptly the day of. During the shoot I never heard a complaint; they were always helpful and because of our pre-planning they were self-motivated to get what I needed on video. Our client was also very happy with their hustle and impressed with their professionalism.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The event and the subsequent videos helped cement the relationship between our client and his client. Everyone was thrilled with the final products and that client relationship, and ours, is still going strong.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow before, during and after the shoot went smoothly, and because we enjoyed working with Minifridge we have since rehired the crew.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Andrew and his crew are dedicated to providing a professional end product. My end product was the b-roll, which was well shot and composed, the interviews, which looked great and had high quality audio, plus event photography. They were careful to make themselves as invisible as possible to the meeting participants. I saw and appreciated the effort they went to to make sure I got exactly what I needed. And, they're nice, I really enjoyed getting to know them and work with them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

If you're looking to hire a crew, Minifridge Media is your professional solution.

He organized everything for me, including where to shoot, who to hire, what wardrobe to wear. I pretty much just had to show up

What was the team composition?

it was him, a videographer, and location contact. I didn't have a high budget so I didn't allocate much to for extra equipment/lighting, but he did make the appropriate recommendations...it was my choice to fore-go on certain things.
