From small idea to finished product

What does the Viva Media process look like?

So you’ve just signed on for the great adventure of making a new video, or maybe you’re still on the hunt for the right company to work with and you’re wondering, “How does this thing work?” or “How is a video made?”

Don’t worry, that’s totally normal. We’ll walk you through our video production process and what you can expect as we move forward.

Here’s a quick rundown, broken into 7 easy-to-follow steps:


How we make your video


After the project has been signed on, our "T's" have been crossed and "i's" have been dotted, it's time to understand your company and your goals for the video, and of course some good ol’ fashioned brainstorming, we put together a creative direction and concept.


We then present you with plot points, messaging, tone and visual style, as well as information on your target audience, and the current landscape. The script then serves as the actual narration of your story, allowing you to read the wording that will inspire your audience to listen, interpret and take action.


The storyboard consists of hand-drawn images for each scene in the Creative Treatment, giving you the full picture before we bring the scenes to life. The Storyboard helps you visualize the characters, icons and environments that populate every scene of your video, while also giving you a sense of motion and how these assets will interact with each other and how each scene will transition seamlessly.


This is where our talented team of designers and illustrators bring the hand-drawn sketches of the storyboard to realization with colouring, shading, texture and every fine detail that makes up the visual identity of your video. Our strategy behind developing a visual style for your video is balancing art with purpose: creating something that is both beautifully designed but will also strike a chord with your audience and appeal to their interests.


Is this thing on? It’s time to tell your story. At this point in your journey, we source demos and samples from our talent pool of voiceover artists from all over the world, finding the perfect match in terms of tone, delivery, cadence and personality in order to deliver your message. The voiceover artist is your storyteller.


In the approved graphic style, we go ahead and create all of the scenes of the video in the fully designed Styleboard. This will show you exactly what each scene will look like in the final video, before we put things in motion.


This is where we really get things moving. Our animators bring static Style Frames to life by putting all of the graphics into motion, while finding the perfect pace and rhythm for delivering your message to your audience.


To top it all off, we give your video added atmosphere and texture by creating background sound effects that complement your story, along with a music track that helps maintain the overall tone and feel of your piece.
