A REEL Multidisciplinary Video Production Company
Things Just Got Reel
We understand you’re here for one of a couple of reasons:
1) You need help promoting your business or a product.
2) We are your competitor and you’re worried about us.
3) You’re gathering information for a current project.
Regardless of the reason, we’re happy that you chose to visit. At any time, if you need further information, please call us at 704.998.3711 and we’ll help you any way that we can. Working with a video company has been daunting in the past, but no longer.
The entertainment industry is full of weird jargon and positions that have creative names. We don’t want to impress you with terms used in Hollywood, we want to impress you with the outcome of your project.
Businesses must tell their story to draw in prospects and convert them to clients. Think of companies like Disney, GEICO or Wal-Mart. I bet that you know their stories, don’t you? The world is waiting on you to tell yours, so let’s get started. Big or small, we create it all.
Episode 11 Studios is proudly owned by United States Air Force veteran, Randy Davis, and Charlotte business woman, Beth Sowell. As the Director and chief Editor, we choose to work with a small, talented, motivated crew so we can stay involved in the production process as much as possible. You’ll never see us standing around texting, or trying to squeeze as many people as possible on our crew; we’re lean and laser focused. Not only are we proud of our history, but also what brought us together to form this company, which makes us so excited to bring your marketing needs to life. We breathe life into each project, through the use of scientifically proven psychological cues to drive your prospects to action.
We Provide Services Worldwide
No longer are we bound by location. The business world is smaller today and it’s easier to service clients near and far. Whether you’re in Charlotte, NC or anywhere on the freaking planet, we can help your business reach critical goals. Multimedia makes a huge difference in how the world determines your worth; we all know it. When we complete your project, your customers will look at you with new appreciation. Let’s get started telling your story, make that call.
We focus on creating content that displays correctly across all media platforms: desktops, tablets, mobile devices, and even the silver-screen. Nothing is more frustrating that spending money on a project that doesn’t reach your audience. From social media marketing to advertising to internet and email campaigns, we know you will see your desired results with our photography, videography and 3D computer graphics.
No matter the platform, our marketing approach succeeds because we understand people; on a consumer behavior and psychological level. Each project must touch the viewer on an emotional level to achieve the desired impact. At Episode 11 Studios, we know how to spark that emotional response in an ethical fashion. This combined focus of ethos and pathos in marketing ensures that your company’s personal message is delivered with integrity.
Imagine a group of mystics who can see your desires and conjure your wishes. Now, remove the disbelief and you have Episode 11 Studios. While we may not have proven mystical powers, our results are, in a word, magical.
We begin by getting to know you and your business on a personal level. We take the time for this extra step in order to help us create an accurate profile of your target market. With this profile in mind, we tailor a strategy that is custom-made for your business to grasp your market’s attention.
We believe in combing the science of the mind (psychology) with the artistry of a creatively-talented crew. A professional media production project should move your audience emotionally through a series of proven psychological steps.
If the viewer isn’t stirred to laughter, tears, smiles or distress, no amount of advertising will give you a return on your investment. People buy emotionally, not logically. Produced with cutting-edge cinematography, compelling scriptwriting, and creative editing techniques, your campaign comes ALIVE.
While no one likes a braggart, we know you appreciate quality. We are proud of our success and look forward to giving you the benefit of our experience.
We cross-train each member of our staff into every position within our organization. Our editors shadow the production crew, and our production crew rolls up their sleeves to work with our post-production editors in the editing bay. Experiencing the challenges of each department helps to streamline the workflow and allows our clients to benefit from a production value that is unheard of in the multimedia industry.
Our entire staff of videographers, photographers, film editors, and 3D artists are passionate about the projects that we create. The outcome is a remarkably effective creation for our clients and a satisfying extension of our staff’s labor of love.
This passion, training, and attention to detail has proven results giving us justifiable reason to boast. Don’t you want the best video production team working for you on all of the following?
• Award-winning Advertising Videos
• Marketing Vignettes
• Primetime TV Shows
• Documentary Films
• Book Trailer Shorts
“It is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.” – Harry S. Truman
This is our motto at Episode 11 Studios. We work and live by this sentiment. While we are competitive in the video marketing industry, we emphasize collaboration within our production company. There is no room for ego in the creative process. We succeed as a team, not as individuals, because it takes a united effort to bring all of the pieces together. Our goal is to work together with you to provide a continual stream of effective, stress-free multimedia projects to help achieve your company’s goals.
Our video producers, photographers, and 3D artists all take the time to learn about your organization, your products and services and your professional goals. Together we can better develop a plan to help you capture your target requirements and gain critical growth for your organization as a whole.
Through a continual study of consumer behavior and psychological cues, we design an ethical strategy to be used in the creation of your video project. This strategy translates to our basic, three-step formula for marketing success:
1.) Attract attention.
2.) Make the message memorable.
3.) Cause consumer to take desired action.
Whether we produce a corporate communication message, a photographic project, or a training, safety, or trade show video, our strategy always begins with a focus to lead the viewer to some form of action. That action could be to share your message on social media, send an email, make a phone call, or visit your location. Whatever your goal, our project should invoke this desired action.
We pride ourselves in being better than other larger video production companies out there. By working with only the best individuals, our smaller team accomplishes more than larger Hollywood-style production companies. We know each other so well, we can anticipate each other’s needs, which means we can fulfill your desires more quickly and efficiently.
Each member of our production crew is worth five idle heads staring at their smart phones. We know how frustrating it is to see people standing around, waiting to be told what to do. Our team is like a family. We combine our highly creative talents with the best cinema-quality production equipment. We have worked together for so long, we can give you the Hollywood quality videography without the Hollywood-sized headache or price tag.
Only the Best Technical Resources and Creative Practices
At Episode 11 Studios, we only focus on stellar video production, which will enhance your business. We have developed an exclusive production workflow, which allows for an abundant production value. We take you through every step of the process, with custom-designed tools to help you effectively explain your vision and gain management buy-in.
Episode 11 believes its corporate customers deserve the same production quality that the big brands use for their seven-figure Super Bowl ads—without the seven-figure price tag. Our videographers are equipped with the video production tools best suited for corporate production projects, not weddings or social events. Our photographers only shoot with the latest camera technology. Our editors only use the most current versions of Autodesk Smoke and Adobe After Effects, and our 3D artists only use Autodesk Maya. By catering solely to corporate clients, our focus is laser sharp; our strategies are effective, and our style delivers Hollywood quality to you at an affordable price.
Episode 11-What’s in a Name?
How did we become “Episode 11 Studios?” Everyone asks us that question. We know how powerful effective video production can be because that is how we were inspired to name our company. By watching TV!
The Tim Allen sitcom, Home Improvement, was one of our favorite shows. We just happened to be watching it while brainstorming the name for our production company. As a creative group, we wanted our name to be something fun, not stodgy. Home Improvement was on and episode 11 was our favorite.
Just like the video products we create, the 11th episode evoked a meaningful response in us, which continues to help us tell our own story.
