Doing Filmmaking the Vancouver way

The filmmaking industry in Vancouver is leveling up

Filmmaking in Vancouver is completely disrupting the marketing industry as content is desired by brands on a never-before-seen level. This has created a serious problem for marketers and brands who need to develop great advertising content for YouTube, social media and online web use.

So we’ve created a powerful solution for brands to get high-value content as filmmaking in Vancouver is done at an inexpensive price while still retaining the value. We’ve cut all of our overhead and reduced our studio space so we have a remote team which is cross-functional and contract-based.

We’ve expanded our filmmaking Vancouver team to include nearly 1,500 contact filmmakers. I was surprised there are even more video producers than that!

There are nearly 10,000 people who have experienced filmmaking in Vancouver. This includes the commercial, broadcast industry, film industry and all other video and media marketing related firms in town.

Filmmaking in Vancouver is generally split into two different segments.

  • The filmmaking industry
  • The commercial industry

A lot of large productions in the filmmaking industry are from Los Angeles and other places of the United States who use Vancouver as a Production Services location.

For the commercial industry, it may include:

  • Event videos
  • Corporate videos
  • Animation and motion graphics studios
  • Even video industries that compliment the whole video game industry

We certainly saw a huge problem with marketers attempting to get video production done so we provided one of the most powerful solutions ever seen in filmmaking Vancouver.

But this didn’t happen overnight. We have been producing videos since 2001 when we won a film festival in high school. My partner and I joined together to create our company Red+Ripley.

Now it has been 20 years and we have produced over 1,000 projects. Just last year, we produced over 150 projects. Our average production budget is under $10,000 and includes a lot of corporate and commercial videos that you call filmmaking in Vancouver.

The benefits that clients gain from filmmaking

Our company works for companies such as Microsoft, Best Buy, Discovery Channel, Future Shop, CBC, many local universities and tons of brands you have never heard of! That’s 1,000 projects and counting my friend. We could be complete fools and figure out something at this point!

The benefits of filmmaking to our clients have been numerous. We have completely ruined companies with a volume of business that they couldn’t control. I’ve seen how companies have to increase their prices, hire more administrative staff to handle the increasing volume and fill dozens of responses from viewers and consumers stumbling across their product or service.

All of the traffic was generated from filmmaking.

When we worked for BC Cannabis, there were nearly 50,000 internal people who reviewed their series of filmmaking videos, which are expected to be used for up to a decade.

Aside from generating business, many brands want professional exposure. A properly done production which looks polished with some high-quality visuals is pretty standard for a visible brand that is looking for a volume of exposure.

Even if we scale our filmmaking project rate down to $1,000, I am proud of what we put out at the door!

I will warn you about other filmmakers in Vancouver. They certainly aren’t bad and I know most of our competitors have had great working relationships.

However, I recently worked with a company which was still shooting on DSLR cameras in 1080p. This is a standard we left behind nearly seven years ago with the purchase of our Red Digital Cinema cameras.

Another important standard is the inflated production budgets and seemingly professional lingo. Sometimes a lot of this presentational stuff is from a young kid who got out straight from film School fiddling around with a couple thousand dollars worth of gear and some Adobe software.

So please contact us today and ask for me personally so that I can help you with your project and expand on your vision and outcomes. I will make sure your filmmaking project is dialed in for great success!
