    We get that email all the time. "We need a shoot, can we get a quote?" You need content, we get it. To us, the creative process is a collaborative process. and we like to start with the "Why" When you watch a film or TV, you see 100s of decisions that have beforehand. We approach film making and photography the same way. There are many questions to ask before we hit record and take a picture. We like to ask the questions before every shoot and when we get the questions we create a "Creative Brief" The questions are more about who you are and what you're trying to communicate. What do you like? Show me your world view, we want to learn from you. We try to sum up your essence into keywords which help guide the story, look and feel. Without a direction and purpose your wondering endless. We live in an age where we're in an informational overload. Just giving someone facts doesn't work. You have to connect with your audience and we get to the "What are you trying to say?" rather than be yes men.

They are scrolling all day, be a breath of fresh air and say something authentic.

Do you want some eye-catching material, or do you want something safe and commercially. An example of hard light. This is great for you want that image to grab someone. An example of soft light. Great for e-commerce, show the product off and all the details. 🧠 goes into making images and video. We ask the right questions to help you steer your message in the right direction.

  • Authenticy

    It's not a keyword, it's often thrown around a lot but we like to delve deeper. Authenticity to us is being an "Original" and creating genuine connections with your audience. When you scroll through your Instagram feed, what do you see? An edited version of what they want the world to see, being authentic to me means. BEING AN ORIGINAL We all project an image of ourselves and we can also control that image, not allowing others to define us. CREATING A CONNECTION When yourself, you attract like-minded people, we are drawn to characters that we can relate to. If you are in the business that wants to connect with others and stand out from the crowd. This a great route to take, we buy from people we relate to. Visual Smugglers helps sculpt your Authentic story, we're a Toronto video production company that creates authentic, bold and engaging content for your brands and business. BEING AUTHENTIC IS BEING GENUINE TO WHO YOU ARE, ANYTHING OTHERWISE IS BEING DISGUISE. #authenticy #thecreator #videoforsmallbusiness #torontovideproduction #videocaststudy #barbershopvideo #💈

Ozark (On Netflix) season 3 came out and I've been an Ozark fan for quite some time. This season is where things get intresting. You had two seasons that built up the story, they were the blueprint. Now you see these characters develop. This show deals with mental health issues, family and a criminal empire. If you haven't seen the two other season, what's your excuse? You got the time! Your like this show if you like dark shows, shows that show the diverse spectrum of the human condition and personas. Summary If Statement: psychology, dramatic drama and Narcos. We think you like this one. Rating: 5 ✨✨✨✨✨ #2 After Life, Season 2 After Life, is on Netflix. This is a show full of meaning and symbolism. It grabs you with a hook and leaves you with a jab. This is what life is about, it's realistic and we often find that life is funnier than reality. We are all going through a hard time at the moment, and you can relate to the main character. He is also trying to find meaning and sense from all this madness. We delve into his world and we hear words of wisdom from all walks of life. This is a show about reflection, expectations, our past and how we treat each other. Summary If Statement: Deep, full of symbolism, your cry, you see a bit of you in this and that's ok.

  • What is Production value?

    Production Value Let's look at this question more deeply, the production value is more than having a large camera and big lights. It's all these elements that are at play that your not aware of. Behind the scenes of a movie set is an army of people to make things look great. You have your lighting department, makeup, set decorator, location scout. Conclusion This list is long and the key take away from this is that production value is basically when you pay attention to each element that goes into filmmaking to make it look like it was a natural event. #new #blog #videoproduction #toronto #creativeagency #productionvaule

  • Grab My attention

    Grabbing attention We live in a 24/7 world, where data is being collected and it's harder to get through because we're getting bombarded with images. Thinking about it gives you stress. You hear advice on what you need to do, 7 best tips, motivational videos, and hustle culture. What do we do with all this? Everything trying to capture your attention, but I'm feeling we're going to try and have more honest and natural conversations. The day where we are more human is eventually going to happen. Media has changed but the message has always remained the same. We are just distributing the message in different ways. Instead of creating a large banner, selling you that owning this product will make you happy. We tell that image on an Instagram picture and with no copy to it. More honest ones, remember storytelling. Telling stories, passing on wisdom, self-reflection, they will be an uprise for detoxing from media. One day was going offline and scream, "Hello, world.!" > End

  • Be You

    KEYWORDS, BUZZWORDS, Video Production, Videography, Filmmaking, Marketing, and the list goes on, we live in a world full of buzzwords and Top 5 tips. Self Help Books and the word entrepreneur is used to describe anyone who doesn't work 9-5pm. These are all just words with no real meaning, they are all pointing in the same direction. "Same" How do you stand out as a brand, if you just following a trend. When the sex pistol came on stage, they were really different to anything that people had seen before. So maybe we're at this point, where great art will be born and we are rejecting the notation to being the same. You are starting to see people disturb the flow of content, content that makes you sit and think. You are taking in a different kind of message. A message that isn't trying to sell you something, but rather a message that you can relate to, a message that you can feel. We are moving forward but at the same time we are also moving backwards. We are remembering the old principle of storytelling and being authentic rather than being the same.

  • Let's Collab

    Let's Collab, is inserted in profiles around the internet. It's the forgotten art. Let's go back in time when the kings wanted to send a message. They sent it via a messenger, who might take days, weeks or months to convey the message to the other person. This is where the behavior began, we thought to ourselves. Why should I leave my castle, to tell share a message, I'll send someone to tell you my message. We send messages, SMS, what's app message and all kind of messages to each other. We ask ourselves this question every day, "do I really need to leave my house?" The world is a scary place, cold and all kinds of anxiety are outside. This is a modern dilemma, but I pleased you. Leave your house, collaboration is how we exchange ideas. When you're in the same room as someone, talking face to face and brainstorming. You think to yourself, "this is so much easier in person." As technology advances, we must remind ourselves of the power of face to face and vibing of each other. Imagine the number of bands and business were created from two people sitting in a room together. Collaboration brings many wonderful things, it's easier to follow someone when you face to face. You don't have to go through messages. It's instant, ok, you have search, but a notepad with a pen is a wonderful thing and you think about each word you write down. So, please make that effort and collaborate.
