Feedback summary: 

The film produced in the project has received completely positive feedback so far, wowing all stakeholders from the city. The New Evolution Video team was highly competent and flexible throughout the project, taking on difficult technical and artistic challenges to produce an unprecedented result.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work in project management, engineering and marketing for a technology company that both manufactures and acts as a general contractor.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire New Evolution Video?

The original scope of work was to make a required pre-construction still and video image record of our sprawling job site as required by project specifications. The intent was to make a high-definition record of all on-site infrastructure that were to be affected by our scopes of work.

This also consisted of miles of surface roads and material staging areas. The records had to be of superb quality as we are liable for repairing/re-building anything that might become damaged during our operations to complete the municipal project for the City of Carlsbad, CA.

After great success with that, we decided to expand the SOW with New Evolution Video to include recording various technically challenging site activities as both a training and marketing tool whereby what we do could then easily be translated into understandable imagery.

What were your goals for this project?

Initially to satisfy the contractual requirements of the City, then evolving to development of training and marketing materials.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We canvased the San Diego County area for the best fit drone capable video production company. The person(s) to oversee the on-site filming and post-production editing would need to be very technically minded, creative and able to think fast on their feet with on-going site change dynamics posed by work activities and variable weather conditions (high winds).

Richard Tiland the founder of New Evolution Video got personally involved in answering all of our questions and preparing a proposal. Their proposal/technical acumen impressed us the most. To our knowledge, this type of work using a drone had not been performed before and Mr. Tiland was excited about the challenge.

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

We spent a couple of hours going over our business/technology and prepared general storyboards. Mr. Tiland was not daunted by anything and was able to interact in real-time as there's no script per se for most of this type of work. He became familiar with what we did mostly by witnessing it first-hand and spontaneously, was able to get phenomenal footage.

He needed to be flexible and ready to adapt/switch gears moment by moment at a very active job-site and he worked exceptionally well accepting both technical and artistic direction as well as masterfully dissecting situations on his own. There was never any bickering or feelings hurt/all went smoothly every day that production occurred.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We have been presented with edited/"catalogued" footage as needed/when needed for our review and presentation to our clients. Missing deadlines was never an issue, we were always well within allotted scheduling. For our current/on-going projects, we receive immediate updates regarding the quality of our footage. We are still in the beginning stages of collecting material. We will work side by side during the editing process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At this juncture we can say that the municipality and their quality assurance sub contractors were absolutely floored by the quality of our submitted materials thus far. We received no other comments aside from praise. Actually using a drone and having 4K footage was first for all involved.

It is becoming more and more common for owners/municipalities to require comprehensive high definition still + video footage of job-sites to ensure that no contractor damages have been incurred over the course of work. We decided to to do this with a drone and we saved almost a day of labor in the process.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Phenomenal thus far/no complaints.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They are extraordinarily capable and easy to work with. They have been very flexible and have NOT said NO when crazy work-site scheduling changes have turned things completely upside down. Their response??? Saved our bacon....

Are there any areas for improvement?

Growing pains can hamper a bit at times....Usually that's a good problem.

Feedback summary: 

Year after year, New Evolution Video produces quality pictures and footage from events that are shared widely across attendees’ social media channels. Their consistency in creating appealing materials makes them a valued, continued partner for years to come. 

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 partner and co-founder of iConnection. We run spa and wellness events for the Southern California spa industry. Every year we have three networking events with about 150 attendees from the community and about 25 spa vendors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with New Evolution Video?

We always need a professional videographer and photographer for our events. New Evolution Video has been working with us to capture these events through photos and videos every year.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Essentially, New Evolution Video takes B-roll footage and take hundreds of photos of our annual events. After they edit the materials, we share it across social media, particularly Facebook, and people tag themselves and their products to promote their businesses. The people and vendors who attend our events use those shots and videos for their own social media purposes.

What is the team composition?

Richard (CEO, New Evolution Video) has sent various photographers and videographers over the years. I’ve met about 6–7 of those teammates throughout our engagement. 

How did you come to work with New Evolution Video?

I’ve known Richard personally for a long time, so when he established New Evolution Video, it was an easy decision to choose them for our needs. I’d already seen his work and the four founders of my company have also known Richard for a while. We trusted him, knew his skill level and attention to detail, so we didn’t even consider any other company.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together on this project since 2010 and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve gotten extremely positive feedback on the photos and videos. Just by looking at our Facebook page, the traffic to all of the photos and videos is clear. Everyone “likes”, tags, shares, and reposts the content across social media. After the events happen, people jump straight to our Facebook page to use them for their own channels. 

How did New Evolution Video perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate by phone, email, text, and in-person. We can give a date and Richard or his teammates will show up for the events. Between 24–48 hours after an event, all of the videos and pictures are uploaded for us to access. Everything is done in a very timely manner. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The great people on their team make them stand out from others in the industry.  Richard knows our project well, so we only need a quick phone call for him to know exactly what to do. After the first time working together, everything just fell into place. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. Going into our tenth year with them, we’re delighted with New Evolution Video and will continue to use them. We have no plans to ever change that as long as we have our events. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Contact them directly. Speak to Richard and he will customize their services to fit your needs.

Feedback summary: 

The client has received high praise for both videos they had developed. They felt that the team was well-organized, met the expectations that were set for them and followed through with promises they made.

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 am the global marketing director of Solar Gard. It is a division of Saint-Gobain, a 350-year-old manufacturing conglomerate. Our primary focus is improving comfort and protection through window film and surface protection solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with New Evolution Video?

We were undergoing a rebranding and a recreation of our message. We wanted to make a video that would help us articulate that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The video had 4 to 5 different sets. New Evolution Video assisted us with scene location, finding the right spots, and picking actors and actresses. They also helped out with sound, script editing, and workflow. They have helped us brainstorm a few concepts and once we decided on one we liked, we went on to the structuring of the storyboard. From there, New Evolution Video took full responsibility for the direction, production, after production, sound and voiceovers, and so on. We included some graphics and digital effects, predominantly words on the screen, and our logo coming out as a watermark in some areas. Digital effects included putting a grid over windows where our products were displayed. One of the benefits of our products is that they can't be seen. In order to help highlight this, we placed that grid on the covered areas.

We have brought New Evolution Video for a new project consisting of a video explanation of our manufacturing process. New Evolution Video has brought in a different director for it, but I've been equally impressed with the quality of our final product.

How did you come to work with New Evolution Video?

We put together a scope document which was sent out for RFPs. We analyzed multiple potential partners, ultimately selecting New Evolution Video because of their balance between cost and professionalism. They showed some creative feedback for our RFP. We wouldn't have expected to get along as well as we did when we met New Evolution Video face to face, given that we're a corporate organization and they're a creative agency. The team is made up of great people with great ideas.

How much have you invested with New Evolution Video?

The cost of New Evolution Video's services has been between $10,000 and $50,000 for both of our projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

The videos have been completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

One of our videos was for internal purposes, so I can't provide any statistics for it. It was highly praised internally. It looks like a professional production, which is great. Our next video had a lower cost, but the general impression for it was that we spent a lot more money than we actually did. The quality was there.

How did New Evolution Video perform from a project management standpoint?

New Evolution Video's team was well-organized. They stuck to their promises, met our communication expectations, and performed well. I'd recommend New Evolution Video to anyone.

What did you find most impressive about New Evolution Video from other providers?

New Evolution Video is made up of good people. They made an excellent job of extracting what our real need was and bringing some creativity to help deliver it.

Are there any areas New Evolution Video could improve?

None.

Feedback summary: 

 

The client has received great feedback on the video that was created. Many of them felt the video would be good as a commercial. They appreciated that the agency was on time and always had open communication. 

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Verimatrix is a security company in the telecommunications space. I work in our marketing department.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with New Evolution Video?

We are a technical company and the telecommunications space is very complex. New hires were having a hard time understanding what we do, so we were trying to create a video that explains our company’s services. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I had developed a script which was 18 pages long and they cut that down to 4 pages. From there, we laid out each of the frames, how they were going to flow, and what we were going to represent visually. The video was true animation and they did a phenomenal job with it. We developed the main character before we did the rest of the video. They animated the video according to what we had outlined. We’ve done a range of projects with them since.

How did you come to work with New Evolution Video?

There were 3 other people who had worked on the project before me and I had their referrals. I did an RFP process with 10 different companies. I went through their proposals and what stood out to me from New Evolution was they had really quality and creative work. Because we are a technical company, I was looking for something that was going to bring character to a dry subject. I saw a lot of creativity in what they put together. For the quality of the work that they did, they were at an amazing price point.

How much have you invested with New Evolution Video?

The cost per project was $5,000 to $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We are currently working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

With the latest project, we did an energizing, motivational video for our annual meeting. Everybody loved it and said it would make a great commercial. The original project we did even helped people who have worked here for 5 years understand our business.

How did New Evolution Video perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been on time with almost everything. We have open communication. I work directly with Kurt, who’s my primary point of reference. He always returns calls and emails in a timely manner.

What did you find most impressive about New Evolution Video?

When I have a strong vision of what I want to see, they are able to make that happen.

I’ve also given them projects that just have an outline and they were able to work within that framework.

Are there any areas New Evolution Video could improve?

Overall, they’re doing great.
