From the Version to the Final Product

Consultation during the First Conversation
Before the project starts, we will have a meeting with you, in which you can inform us about your goal and your target group. We are happy to advise you on how you can achieve these goals in the best possible way.

The Conception
Our agreements serve as the basis for different concepts with corresponding offers. You can then decide which concept fits your needs best.

Pre-production starts as soon as the conception phase is over: filming locations and actors are organised by us and schedules are created for the filming. When everything is organised, we are ready for the shooting.

Production & Shooting
Filming is the heart of every film production. The actors are staged at the appropriate locations and emotions are captured in the best way possible to meet your and our expectations

Music & Speaker
Once the shoot is over and everything is filmed, the voice of the right speaker is inserted if necessary. You can freely decide which voice and language you want for your film. Even the right music should be added. Only through the right background music a film production will get the final touch. You can choose from a huge music selection or if you cannot find something suitable, we will compose an individual sound just for you.

During post-production, the footage is sifted and cut. In order for the right atmosphere to emerge, the image undergoes a colour correction. On request you can also add animations and special effects.

The Approval
After we have implemented the concept and all of your correction requests, we will provide you with the finished advertising film digitally as a download. Depending on your wishes, you will receive our productions in every popular video format in Full HD quality.

Documentary Film | Shooting | Creation | Production


The documentary is a film genre that depicts actual happenings or at least aspects of them as truthfully as possible. A documentary should therefore be authentic and give the viewer the opportunity to judge the authenticity independent.

A documentary should in the first place cast a spell over the viewer by provoking emotions. Therefore personal stories and / or individual fates are told. The aim of a documentary film is to document and inform, while captivating the audience as much as possible. The viewer should think about the content of the film and deal with the subject. The story is told with the help of moving pictures, the right speaker and atmospheric music, whose unity should touch the audience emotionally.

Shooting and Producing Exciting Documentary Films

By definition, the first moving images were documentaries because they captured moments in life in a film. Documentation has been popular for decades and will continue to be an important part of the film industry in the future. When producing documentary films, it is always important to give the video a modern look and capture as many emotions as possible. At the same time, the documentary should be as authentic as possible. That way the film can capture the reality of the experiences and represent them appropriately. When creating your documentary, we focus on delivering a unique, modern and authentic result to your fullest satisfaction.

In a documentary, it is important to present real actions, people, circumstances and events in order to give the viewer a good impression. For a documentary, no detailed storyboard is usually needed. Rather, a good sense for people and actions is necessary to capture emotional images despite improvisation.

The Conception

Since a documentary film is, in most cases, meant to capture reality, the biggest challenge is to find people with an appropriate personal story to give the film a vivid character. It is also important to determine which message the film should convey and what its communication goal is. It should also be based on a specific target group.

The Organisation

Depending on the duration of the shooting and the intended content, the required equipment and personnel must be scheduled.

Highest Quality

We oblige to the highest quality standards: Our modern technology from well-known manufacturers always allows us the highest image quality. So we can deliver you the best pictures and achieve an optimal result.

Professional Sound

In documentaries as well as in other film projects, pictures are usually accompanied by music and other sound effects. On request, a speaker can accompany the story, too.

Production and Costs of a Documentary

In a short documentary, a perspective on a self-contained world is conveyed. This world must be presented in an emotionally appealing way. It does not matter if a short or long documentary is to be produced, the time required is similarly long.

First the theme of the film is defined in the conception. For this purpose, a basic story should be found in cooperation with the customer. Then the goal or purpose of the movie is defined, whereupon we create the script. At the latest, the emotion to be achieved should be determined. Afterwards we create a storyboard and have a detailed consultation with the customer. This conceptual design process takes about one to three days.

When actors are the focus of the documentary, interviews provide variety. The performers have to be organised and should feel comfortable in front of the camera to look authentic.

For the final production, the right equipment, locations and staffing needs to be planned. Additional costs for props, rides and equipment rental may apply. The shooting is based on a previously created schedule. Of course, the size of the film crew depends on the size of the project – the bigger the project and the longer the filming takes, the higher are the costs. Even the post-production can be very expensive. Graphic designers take over tasks such as the design of the intro / outros or the insertion of animations and special effects. In addition, the right music and sound effects are an important aspect that enhance a documentary. The cheapest solution in terms of music are GEMA-free songs, which are paid for according to a license model. For your documentary, you can also produce your own piece of music for about 500 euros.
