What was the scope of their involvement?
Panoptica provided production services, including getting insurance for our equipment and crew, hiring the crew, and creating a line item budget that worked within our set budget. They also found a fixer in Ecuador who helped ensure our equipment and staff arrived alright and organized transportation.
They provided full production services and directed the commercial, developing the storyboards, visuals, and mood boards. Our staff flew to Ecuador and worked with Panoptica as they executed the shoot. They also provided post-editing services, including sound mixing, composing, color, and exporting.
What is the team composition?
We primarily worked with a production manager, but also connected with their director.
How did you come to work with Panoptica Films?
A friend of mine recommended Panoptica to me. Since they were able to deliver within our budget, I didn't consider another vendor.
How much have you invested with them?
The commercial came out to about $30,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked on the commercial from February to May 2015.
