Our Three-Stage Production Process

We're aiming to become the premier video production company in Chicago. As a full-service production house, we take you from idea to final cut to help you realize your creative vision.


Whether it's a 15-second Facebook explainer or a 45-minute corporate promotion video, we take each of our projects through the same three-stage video production process.


Let's dive a little deeper into each step.


Pre-Production

Good preparation saves you time and money, so we take the time on the front end of every video project to chart our course to produce a video that tells the story only you can tell.


CREATIVE DISCOVERY & CONSULTING

We want to hear everything about your project:

  • What is your message?
  • Who is your audience?
  • What do you need this video to accomplish?
  • What's your idea?

Don't have an idea? No problem. Our creative team will work with you to create something special.


SCRIPT WRITING & STORYBOARDING

Just like an architect draws a blueprint, we script out the whole video from start to finish and storyboard each shot so we know exactly what we need when filming starts.


EQUIPMENT BOOKING & STUDIO BOOKING

We take on project management by coordinating equipment, actors, and spaces. All you need to do is show up when we tell you to!


TALENT (ACTING + VOICE OVERS)

You worry about making what you make, whatever it is. Let us deal with finding the voice and acting talent, the background music, and so on. 


Production

Time to get the cameras rolling. We’ll take everything we learned from the pre-production to bring your video to life.


SET DESIGN

Your office may not be the best place to shoot your video—or it may be almost perfect. Our team attends to all the details of the set to make sure it serves the story.


FILM AND AUDIO CAPTURE

We bring in the professional equipment we need to get the highest quality video and audio for your video.


CREW AND TALENT DIRECTING

Our directors know how to get everyone to work together to have smooth, safe, efficient, and fun shoot.


EXECUTION

From "Action" to "That's a wrap!"


Post-Production

Our expert editors will do their magic on every shot of your video, piecing together a one-of-a-kind video for you to share with the world.


GRAPHICS

We source as well as create dynamic, colorful graphics to illustrate and support your message.


COLOR AND SOUND CORRECTION

If you hear someone say, "We'll fix it in post," this is what they mean.


STOCK FOOTAGE AND PHOTOS

We can insert other media to enhance your story beyond what we can shoot on site.


MEDIA STORAGE

All the media we collect is stored and backed up on Salvi's secure servers. You never need to worry about losing footage.


DISTRIBUTION

We'll give you a clean, final cut of your video project and can offer guidance on effective distribution strategies and channels.

​Specialty Areas

We offer video production services for all of Chicago. But our unique backgrounds and experiences have given us special expertise in several areas.


Corporate Videos

Use video to reach more people in a more engaging way—and with the option for asynchronous and/or remote access. Common corporate projects include:

  • Training videos to onboard new hires or to maintain industry compliance
  • Educational videos on new initiatives
  • Promotional videos about new programs and products
  • Investor/shareholder videos
  • Customer testimonials/case studies

Music Videos

Enrich the power of music to tell a story with creative and exciting visuals.


Athletic Event Videography

Real Estate Videography

Video can move around your space in the same way your prospective buyer will. It's a powerful tool to help buyers imagine themselves living in, working in, or owning your property.


Non-Profit/Community Organization Promotional Videos

The good work you do deserves good promotional materials.

  • Tell the stories of the people and places you impact
  • Engage more people on social media
  • Inspire and excite investors and donors with the power of story
