So, here's the plan?
BRAnd strategy meeting
First we meet in-person or online. You tell us about your brand, your business and everything you do for your customers. Then our team will get to work building your unique story.
BRAnd story proposal
Once we've had a little time to develop our approach we will present you our idea and discuss the resources required to bring this vision to life.
Video Production time
Time to produce this. We put together our crew, assemble all the necessary pieces and work with you and your team to lock in the schedule. Time for the movie magic to begin!
Have a script, a song/music video idea or a product story but don’t know how to get it off the ground? Need funding, a crew, connections, industry knowledge? Our producers will go to bat for you and bring your vision to life. Whether you’re in need of script development all the way through to distribution, HatChaps know the way. From short to long form productions we have the knowledge to deliver the greatest possible crystallization of your art.
Owner, Nick Bohle, is an experienced film, music video, theatre and music creator and performer. HatChaps was founded on the premise that... well... Nick wears many hats. As such, his breadth of experience in so many fields lends well to the director's chair. Nick continues to mentor emerging directors and filmmakers with the HatChap Productions Internship Program.
NARRATIVE PRODUCTION PROCESS
Tell us about your story, your script. Great films come from great words so we like to sit down and create a solid foundation for the rest of the production process to stand on.
Amazing content comes from having exceptional images and sounds paired with calculated delivery. Who is this film for? Who are we speaking to? How can we evoke our greatest effect. We'll discuss your goals and targets then tailor the production plan to meet your objectives.
From coordinating logistics like locations and equipment to permits and contracts it is important to consider the whole picture ahead of shooting to manage costs and expectations.
Lights. Camera. Action! We use our top-of-the-line production equipment and team to capture beautiful images and crystal clear sounds. Our skilled directors allow actors to access their true potential as performers and bring your vision to life on screen.
Now we get to work putting it all together. Our skilled editors, sound designers and post-production team works together to build your film into its final version. Once we have a final edit we will send to you for a review and any revisions.
