What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The work was outstanding, professional and exceptionally creative. The founder exceled at storyboarding; I think he was born to do it. We noticed improved traffic and video views on one project, but don’t have analytics for anything done before that.
The whole team also proved their strategic branding and marketing skills. Most employees are film school graduates, but are more strategic than other industry professionals. They make insightful recommendations and have a good grasp on industry best practices. I keep recommending them for their overall talent.
Sparkhouse made it easy for us, as a startup, to work with a limited budget. They’re creative about getting resources, such as free actors from Los Angeles, at a cost-effective price.
How did Sparkhouse perform from a project management standpoint?
It’s great that I work with only one or two people. The producer or founder marshals all the resources: actors, scripts, location shoots, etc. They take care of everything.
The founder especially is not shy to bug me until he gets what he wants. They’re great project managers, getting tasks completed on time and on budget.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The combination of digital marketing prowess and video production competency stands out.
Are there any areas they could improve?
They could take me to lunch more often, but I have no serious critiques.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Have a realistic budget in mind because most video production companies engage under a certain amount. However, Sparkhouse can adapt to meet clients’ financial needs. When I started as a startup, I was impressed with how they were able to get resources without breaking the bank. The more direction the client provides, the better they can execute.
