SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have n associated with Santanu Productions (SP) number of years for their corporate films covering a range of subjects – the quintessential company film, project films, safety films, event-specific films and people films. A small company in terms of manpower, Santanu Productions distinguish themselves with their quick assimilation of briefs, and prompt & effective implementation right from story board to rushes to completed film.

But their USP lies also in their ability to translate simple ideas of the customer into effective story telling solutions in film. The success of this small production house is evident from its large active customer database (that includes many successful corporate houses in India, who have become its regular clientele, along side new customers), its references and commendable body of work. Santanu Productions owes its success to the vision, passion and technical & visualisation capabilities of its head Mr Santanu Bhattacharjee, who has several decades’ experience working with and for a wide range of leaders in various fields.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

SP was responsible for end to end delivery of the films. Receiving and assimilating the brief, creation of a story board, usage of material provided, provision of graphics where needed from SP database/library, sourcing of royalty-free images and footage where needed, best onboarding of external resources based on budget, entire production including recording of voice overs, music integration, timeline creation until final rushes and completed film.

What was the team composition?

Santanu Productions operates with a key team of 2 or 3 fully-qualified and trained film editors. Mr Bhattacharjee receives the customer brief and translates this into a film concept. The team functions around his brief/instruction.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

As many as 5 films were developed in the period under review - each with a duration of 3 to 6 minutes, based on our requirement. the films were delivered with SP's trademark attention to quality and content. The end result was more than satisfactory, and a couple of the films have been used. 2 of the films could not be used to the onset of the Covid-19 situation, but will be screened on revised event dates.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Excellent. SP is very agile and customer-focused. Electronic connectivity, quick assimilation of requirements, fast turnaround time of all stages of production, flexibility to allow studio on-line editing inputs, change request handling are watchwords for SP, and they live and deliver these to the full satisfaction of the customer. Mr Bhattacharjee's own background in music, stage filmography make him a leader in the field, and he identifies quickly with passionate and driven customers.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The attributes described above, and the cost aspect. They are reasonable and driven more by long term customer relationships than by project cost.

Are there any areas for improvement?

One area foreseen is an expansion of team strength to take into consideration higher workloads. However, even in peak workload situations SP has been accommodating to urgent requests.
