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

Setter Studios met with us to discuss our goals. They visited the office prior to filming to discuss logistics and came up with a detailed project plan. They filmed the office, staff, and selected patients. They returned another day to shoot additional film. They will come back for a final shoot to capture a better view of the ocean from the office. They’re also working on an additional video highlighting dental procedures performed in the office.

They guide our team through the process in order to complete filming in a way that minimizes disruptions to our patient workflow. Communication is open, whether via texting, email, or in person.
