Thank You - DoorDash

During the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic – the grocery stores were running out of food and restaurants were closing, but Dashers were on the front lines, delivering – keeping us fed and restaurant owners in business.

This spot was a Thank You letter to all Dashers.

Matt Maeson - Go Easy

Director Cody LaPlant wanted to craft a music video that dealt with the duality of Matt Maeson in his song – “Go Easy” – where we feel his sense of imprisonment through the metaphor of his inmate self. Juxtaposing both worlds, we are able to witness the consecutive escapes – where Matt is able to reintegrate himself to truly find freedom.

To receive your Graduated Drivers License you must have at least 30 hours of practice behind the wheel. Children’s Hospital wanted to encourage students to keep practicing, because no one is proficient at anything with only 30 hours of practice.

She Walks for Water

We follow an impoverished family in the Dominican Republic as they make their daily 2km walk to their nearest source of water – the local river, a source polluted with garbage and filled with bacteria.

Revolution Fashion - Gerber Technology

Announcing Gerber Technologies brand new Innovation Center, Director Jordan Larson wanted to craft a promotional video that established a new style for the company’s brand – highlighting the micro factory that is leading the way in fashion technology.

Dashin' Mike - The Departure

We follow Mike – an entrepreneur who wanted to carve his own journey in life – culminating in the decision to embark from his hometown of Tomah, Wisconsin to Doordash across the contiguous 48 states. An ultimate road trip – we witness his departure, where he faces his fears and tribulations as he prepares himself for this epic campaign.

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 an independent musician.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Take7 Productions?

I had challenges finding video and photography services that met the standards of what I was looking for.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first video they shot for us was for a song called “Black Magic”, where I collaborated with another artist. The team provided a big light that was meant to mimic moonlight. They also had a couple of cameras to capture everything.

What is the team composition?

We worked with four people from their team.

How did you come to work with Take7 Productions?

I met their team lead through a good friend, and we became good friends for a year before discussing the project. I played them the song one day and they asked to do a video for it. The rest is history.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $2,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our project spanned June 2016 and wrapped up July 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video ended up looking awesome, and we ended up winning video of the year from a global publication. We were also screened at the Milwaukee film festival. Everyone who saw the video really loved it, too. Overall, it was really easy working with them. They’re a friendly, open-minded team that’s open to hearing suggestions.

How did Take7 Productions perform from a project management standpoint?

They were awesome. I had never done something of that magnitude before, so I was a little starstruck when we started. They were very helpful in making things for the video. The team did a lot of things that went above and beyond.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a great knack for relating to the people they work with. As an artist, it’s easy to sit back and let the video leads talk about what their vision is, but Take7 is really open to collaboration.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so. I wish their services were a bit more affordable so I could work with them more, but they charge what they’re worth.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to voice what you’re thinking, it’ll make the end result better.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Take7 Productions, LLC’s work has met the mark. The team produced 11 successful deliverables that exceeded expectations. The team is collaborative, prompt, and always willing to devise creative solutions. Customers can expect a fast-paced team that’s willing to work at a moment’s notice.

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 a senior producer at a creative agency. We connect brands with a network of filmmakers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Take7 Productions, LLC?

We were contacted by a food delivery service and they needed to find a partner to create a video about one of their employees who went across the United States, making deliveries for a living. We had less than a week to find a filmmaker that would be able to capture that employee’s journey. Take7 was only an hour from where that employee lived and was immediately able to start filming.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They filmed this employee for about four months, as they were on the road making food deliveries. The team filmed his departure and met up with him in a number of states to capture footage. In the end, there were 11 deliverables; 4–5 of them were two-minute length films. Six of them were 15–30-second pieces that were used for social media.

What is the team composition?

We worked with three people from their team, including a creative director, a director, and a producer.

How did you come to work with Take7 Productions, LLC?

I was looking for filmmakers in Milwaukee, so it was hard to find teams that fit the profile and quality of what I was looking for. When I found Take7 I fell in love with their work and they were just a perfect fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $90,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2019, and we wrapped up in January 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re incredibly satisfied with Take7. It was really wonderful too, because our client attended some of the shoots, and the team had such a great rapport. They were professional, did exactly what we wanted, and provided solutions for us. They’re definitely craftspeople; they never overshot because they had such a clear vision of what they wanted the end product to be. The team took the time to understand our client’s brand and was able to create content based on their tone and style.

How did Take7 Productions, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

They were the best. The team is incredibly responsive, and they’re willing to make things collaborative. Conversely, if you just want them to take the lead on things, they’re able to do that as well. We communicated via phone and took care of any work I needed within a moment’s notice.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re communicative, organized, and quick to work, which we found useful. The team always came to us with creative solutions. They’ve produced some of the most beautiful work I’ve ever seen.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Honestly, no. They’re crushing it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My advice is to get collaborative with them; it’s a strong suit for them. If you’re looking for a partner, then they’re the team for you.
