What was the scope of their involvement?
When Oranje came down to propose a quote for their services, we went through the process of defining a scope. Based on the information and text I provided, they suggested a concept, method, atmosphere, and set up.
Oranje came up with a plan to produce one corporate video and two product profiles. I elaborated on our company’s history, described the type of video we wanted, and provided text with translations for French and English.
We spent three days together on the road. Oranje assigned us a producer and camera operators. They assembled an entire team and took care of all the details. Based on all the tasks we outlined in the quote, they planned a calendar for the project. They kept us updated about any delays.
What is the team composition?
I was in touch with one account manager, who did a good job.
How did you come to work with Oranje?
Oranje called us regarding their services during business development outreach. Julien (Vice President, Oranje) presented what they could do for us perfectly. He outlined their strategy and method, discussed work they'd done for other companies, and provided referrals. Based on that short conversation, my general manager decided we should meet them. I found their company’s approach to our project very interesting, so we signed a contract. We are one of many industrial businesses they're working with right now.
How much have you invested with them?
The initial budget was close to $25,000. We will probably spend another $10,000 for the shoots we've done in Ontario and the Rimouski, Canada. These locations are very far away, so the extra fees are understandable. We've discussed extending our collaboration to include Google AdWords and Analytics strategy with our website. Added together, the two contracts will total close to $40,000–$45,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We've been working together since April 2018. Our first meeting was in March. Tomorrow, we will finish our last filming segment. We hope to complete the corporate video and other products by the end of September and have further projects planned.
