F.A.Q


What does Shade Tree provide?

Shade Tree provides an experience for your intended audience.  We tell your story through compelling video that motivates viewers to take a clear call to action.  Whatever your end goal is, we can use film to get you there.

From early planning stages to completed video, we take you through the whole process.

What if I don’t know what story I want to tell?

Not a problem.  Once we get a feel for your business or project, we can help develop the story that will resonate most with your viewers.  We are not only amazing story tellers, but fantastic story writers as well.  We’ll get you there.

I only know I want a video, but have no ideas from there.  Can you help?

We certainly can.  More and more businesses, in particular, are seeing the statistics that accompany video marketing campaigns and what it does for your business.  There is NO BETTER medium for connecting with your potential customers than through video.  So we have many clients that are in this very position, they know they want a video, but don’t know where to go from there.  Our pre-production system makes it easy to discover your story, identify your audience, and formulate the best message to achieve the results you are looking for.  In short, we’ll take care of it.

How much does it cost?

This is a difficult question to give a blanket answer for, as every project varies in scope and size.  However, after one free consultation we can put together a package that works with your budget.  We provide all our clients with a multi-tiered quote so that we can find the right package for every project.

Where can you shoot?

Anywhere you would like.  We have travelled all over the country and world on various projects, as our unique and extensive network allows to do so.  We haven’t (yet) shot in Antartica, so we are actively looking for a client that needs that scene.  Who doesn’t want to go to Antartica?

Why do I need a video?

Frankly, with where we are at currently with technology and marketing, this question today is identical to another question asked 20 years ago: “Why do I need a website?’  The answer becomes pretty clear.

Video marketing, and especially home page video, is the only way to compete in today’s environment.  But, not all videos are created alike.   Fortunately for you, we are far better at video production than our competitors.  Want some statistics on video?  Check out this blog post.

What makes Shade Tree different?

We don’t want to be those guys, but we are pretty good at what we do.  You can see some of our work here.  We are a small firm that has produced film for some very large brands and corporations.  Why?  Because they have seen our work, and they have experienced our process.  In fact, we travel around the country teaching other filmmakers how to produce video and run production like we do.  We’ll bring that experience to work for you.

How long does the process take?

This is a question that is unique to each project.  After we understand or help you discover your vision, we can give you a firm timeline on the entire process.

Is all of the content used either original or licensed?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Definitely yes.
