Hi, welcome to our Frequently Asked Questions section.

How do I get my Custom Branded Video?
Because each video we create for you will be unique to your brand we need to define the products together. A Strategy Call is the best way to do this, and find out first if a video will fulfil your needs.
But we’ve made it super simple, and we have a process that we’ll go through with you.
Of course, we have a starting point. Your Goals. From that we’ll piece together everything you need to have a unique and engaging video, integrated with your branding during the full editing process.
The benefit is that together we can be highly cost effective, use your existing content (that you’ve already paid for) and save you a packet in the process.
We’ll pull everything that you need either from your website content, your existing branding files, or our “Magic Vault”. If you already have HD logos and website images you’re ready to go right now.
We take care of all the creative stuff and will make a proposal based on the Top Level styles you choose. However, our proposal will be fine-tuned to the voice of your business and your brand.
To make sure we can do that we’ll have to have a short call, especially if this is your first project with us.
It’ll be super simple. We’ll talk about your business, fix color palettes and images, and define the text and Calls To Action.
If you’re not sure about such things, don’t worry. It’s our job to guide you, and we won’t take much of your time.
Once we’ve done, we’ll create a Private Product Proposal outlining everything we mapped out together.
What if I don't have a YouTube page?
Can I include my own video or images?
- Logo format should be 2048px x 2048px .png with transparency.
- Video should be 1080p minimum [1920px x 1080px]
I don't want to do a voice over?
Can we use our own people in the video?
Can my video be embedded on my website?
Absolutely. We recommend it! The high definition video we create can easily be converted for use on the web, mobile or large screens. It’s a great way to get the most out of your marketing dollar.
Make sure you have hosting that can rapidly serve HD video and you’re good to go.
If you do have issues with shared hosts lagging or streaming High Definition content, then get back in touch with us. We can offer secure, high-speed hosting for a small monthly charge.
We’ll also securely lock your videos so that they can only appear on your own website domain. As an added bonus we’ll colour-brand the player controls to your website design.
YouTube is great for getting promotional content out there, and our Intro/Outro products are ideal to signal to your subscribers that you’re a Pro worth subscribing to.
If you do use YouTube to host website embedded content, just remember that your video may be polluted by your competitions advertising, end-screen next video suggestions, YouTube Player branding, and a host of other things designed to drag people away from your website and into YouTube’s ads network. At the end of the day, that is what YouTube is designed to do and they do it very well.
How many different ways can I distribute my video?
