Sparkhouse delivered a high-quality and professional video. Their transitions were well-planned and stand out. Super responsive, their turnaround time was fast. Overall, the process was seamless and they completed the project in just a few days.

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 the founder of a pop-up museum, called the Donut Life Museum. It’s similar to other interactive exhibit museums. It’s very immersive and each room illustrates a significant moment of life. It’s donut-themed and utilizes donut puns.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Sparkhouse?

They helped me piecemeal some of the images I had to create a branding video.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It was a one-minute video. To get started, they just needed graphics or images of the exhibit. I sent that over in a folder. We’re an interactive exhibit, but are trying to adapt because of COVID-19. We were also looking to produce hand sanitizer and face masks once the museum is reopened. I sent them those images, and they embedded that into the branding video for us. They implemented those images, text overlays, and come music behind it.

What is the team composition?

In addition to our main point of contact, there were three other people on the team who were copied on emails.

How did you come to work with Sparkhouse?

One of my classmates from college reached out because they were helping small businesses record branding and promotional videos. Then I applied through the application for the complementary video and explained how our business was impacted by COVID-19.

How much have you invested with them?

It was a pro-bono project.

What is the status of this engagement?

The turnaround time was pretty quick. It started at the end of April 2020, and I got the video back about three days later.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a pretty good job. I liked that the turnaround time was pretty quick and they did a very professional job. I also really liked their music selection. They worked with me to make minor tweaks at the end, and they were very helpful with that. The video turned out very well. They did a really good job, especially since it was just a few days long.

How did Sparkhouse perform from a project management standpoint?

They were really responsive. From our first email communication, they responded within a few hours. Whenever I had a question, they responded right away. It was really easy to work with them. The application helped them prepopulate a lot of the information they needed to get started. Overall, the process was seamless.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really like how they included the text overlays and they chose the perfect soundtrack for the video. It looks very professional and their transitions are very well. done.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be very clear about what you want and the message you want to send across. On top of that, being prepared with all of your materials. I had all of my archived images, logos, graphics, and fonts ready to go, so it was easy to share with them.

The video received a lot of engagement on Instagram and brought in tons of new clients. There was a 12%–15% increase in the number of bookings based on my tracking of the post's engagement. Sparkhouse did a good job, so I’m interested in creating more videos with them.

How did Sparkhouse perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated by e-mail and text messages. Their team was responsive to any edits or changes that I requested. They were amazing, so Ioved working with Sparkhouse.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication skills were great. Their ability to create value was their most impressive quality. It was a free video, but their team gave me amazing content to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I was satisfied.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be open. Let them know exactly what you want. If you don’t, you won’t be happy with the final product.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am employed as the Health Communications Manager for the OC Health Care Agency. The Health Care Agency's ultimate client is the entire County population. While providing direct services to individual clients or patients, the Agency’s primary focus is to protect and promote the health and safety of the community as a whole.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Sparkhouse?

Sparkhouse was originally contracted to work on a training video to support the Environmental Health Department in communicating licensing and permitting process related to temporary food facilities. When the COVID-19 pandemic occurred, those plans were postponed and we used Sparkhouse to help communicate an important message to the public regarding resiliency.

What were your goals for this project?

The objective of our Resiliency video is to encourage the residents of Orange County to feel hopeful and empowered in an uncertain time by focus on strenghthening our resiliency and adapting to our new circumstances.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We reviewed some of our prior partner agencies as well as specialized video production companies. We chose Sparkhouse because felt their approach to the project demonstrated they understood our business and knew how to breakdown the steps of a complex project into manageable parts.

They also showed work experience similar to the look and feel of what we envisioned for our project. The selection was made by the communications team in collaboration with the program leadership executives.

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

The Resiliency project Sparkhouse created for us wasn't the original ask. As the COVID-19 pandemic hit, our agency's priorities have shifted to a singular goal of supporting public health.

We asked Sparkhouse if they could produce a supportive video to communicate hope to the population during challenging times. They were given top line objectives regarding the video project, after which they wrote the script, created the storyboard, sourced stock footage and voice talent, and producted and edited the video. All the work was done within seven days.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Sparkhouse used a solid management and feedback process, establishing iitial goals with the communications and program teams to set up timelines and understand our vision.

They kept us up to date on each step of the process, establishing reasonable time for feedback and responding with professional design consultations to keep the project on track for achieving objectives and not straying too far into details that might have detracted from the end product. They demonstrated agility when responding to revisions and still met the deadlines.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

While this is still an ongoing situation in Orange County (and the World), the content Sparkhouse created has been well received with great comments and lots of sharing within social media platforms. It has also been shared by County providers and partners to their followers and clients.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our interactive workflow has been terrific. In VERY unusual and demanding times, Sparkhouse has kept us on track, giving appropriate prompting to help us meet our deadlines while allowing for executive approvals. Our ask for get this done asap, and they delivered on time, met objectives and delivered a beautifully created product.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Flexibility, professionalism, agility and in the face of lots of challenges, they created an excellent product for us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Next time, I hope we aren't creating something in a pandemic!

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the Founder and CEO of Eruditely (https://eruditely.com), a groundbreaking knowledge and networking platform for content creators, writers, artists, musicians, educators, learners, and more!

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Sparkhouse?

We hired Sparkhouse to produce a marketing video that would demonstrate our platform in detail to a variety of audiences, including new members, crowdfunding, investors, and the general public.

What were your goals for this project?

The main goal of our project was to produce an inspiring and informative video that would fully demonstrate our platform and its features using a variety of different use-cases. Knowing that we had a lot of information to convey, we wanted to tell a story for each set of features to keep the video interesting and the viewer engaged. This video had to be appealing and compelling to many audiences ranging from future members to potential investors.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I spent about two days researching and evaluating various video production companies that I found online. I ultimately found Clutch and started to review the top video companies there. I was trying to find a video company that had a wide degree of capabilities and styles. Eventually I found Sparkhouse and reviewed their portfolio which was very impressive. Ultimately I reached out to them and had an initial conversation with their CEO Torrey Tayenaka. That conversation went very well, and lead to me choosing them.

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

It was evident from the very beginning that Sparkhouse had an extremely organized planning and production process. Before the project started they had me fill out a Creative Brief so that I could fully explain our goals and requirements. Their entire production team read that brief in preparation for our first conference call. At every phase of the project the team made sure they fully understood our requirements and feedback, and adjusted the plans accordingly. What I found most impressive about Sparkhouse was that they really stuck to their production phases. Some of those phases included a script outline, script copywriting, AV script, black and white storyboards, colored storyboards, animation production and many phases of corrections. By breaking down the process in this way and really following it forced us to clearly think out every step and detail, and ultimately resulted in better decisions and superior results.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Sparkhouse has an amazing team, and people who specialize in every part of the project. This includes a dedicated Account Manager, Producer, Creative Director, Copywriter, Voice-over Artist, and animation team, among others. Their Founder and CEO Torrey Tayenaka was very hands on, especially in the earlier phases of the project which I felt was very important. Their project management style is rooted in their well-organized production phases, but also complimented by their extremely fast response times. Earlier in the project we had a lot of conference calls with multiple team members so everyone was on the same page. Individual team members would often reach out via email for specific purposes, and their response times were extremely fast. Sparkhouse also uses Frame.io to help coordinate the entire team with the client during review phases. Our video in particular went through many phases of review and corrections, and using Frame.io really helped to keep that process efficient. I should also mention that the entire team at Sparkhouse is extremely patient, and is willing to go the extra mile to make the customer happy.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We finished our video recently, so it's a little early to speak about overall success. But I can say with confidence that every single person who has seen our video thus far was blown away by it. We all had certain expectations of what this video would like when the project started, and the end results have far exceeded all those expectations. The video Sparkhouse made for us is visually stunning, captivating, and inspiring. It checks off all the boxes we needed to make a video for all audiences. I have no doubt that it will help us to bring attention to Eruditely for many years to come!

I think these results speak for themselves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzceBgnNn0U

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Over the months that we worked with Sparkhouse I got to know every single member of their team very well. Their Founder and CEO Torrey Tayenaka is extremely professional and easy to talk with. If there was ever a problem he quickly stepped in to remedy it. Our Account Manager, Spencer, was always there with lightning fast response times over email. Having those fast response times is so critical on a large production project. The Creative Director, John N, was really key to our video's success because he was willing to work on all the details and multiple phases of corrections. I pushed John hard to get every single detail right in our video, and he was always up to the challenge. I also enjoyed working with the Producer, Jonny, who was very helpful in the end phases of our project. Every single member of Sparkhouse has different responsibilities, but they all work together extremely well to produce superior results. I honestly enjoyed working with every single person!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

There are many things that I found impressive about Sparkhouse, but one thing stands out beyond all others. I'm not the easiest of customers to have. I'm a detail-oriented perfectionist who has very high standards. I expect the best out of everyone I work with, and I push people hard to achieve amazing goals. This kind of work ethic can produce great results when working with the right people. In the case of Sparkhouse they were always willing to go the extra mile for me. Our video was extremely detailed, and I wanted to really get it as perfect as possible. This meant going through many phases of review and corrections. There were times when I thought I'd drive the Sparkhouse team crazy, and I probably did. But despite this they always remained professional and were willing to put in the extra time to get every detail right. I have great respect for them because of this. The team at Sparkhouse is talented, capable, and diligent! They have exactly the right mix of qualities to produce incredible results. I'm so grateful that I found them and for all the time and hard work they put into making our video the best it could be!

Are there any areas for improvement?

Our video did take a lot longer to produce than originally planned, but that is not due to Sparkhouse. This is mainly because I pushed to make the video as perfect as possible, resulting in many extra phases of review and corrections. I think the only real issues we had with Sparkhouse were in the earlier phases of production while working on the script outline. There were definitely some miscommunications during that stage, but we were able to resolve those problems with the help of Torrey. While I can't say this entire project went flawlessly, the end results were flawless because Sparkhouse was always willing to go above and beyond.

Everything started after I click the red button on their website "Get Started", this form was very effective, they ask me specific questions about my project. Right after I receive a phone call from Torrey, where he explains the video process in detail. Areas where their team needs to involve to create the impact I was looking for.

These guys know exactly what they are doing. My main point of contact was Torrey and he was extremely responsive over the phone and email. The round of revisions was simple and they were open to making the necessary changes to accomplish our goal.
