January 20th Biz Blast: Millwork Films
Millwork Films, LLC, is a full-service film and video production company based in Boardman, Ohio, serving businesses and non-profit organizations that need keen storytelling for their promotions and fundraising. Whether you want video for your business website, a documentary for a fundraising banquet, or a DVD to distribute to your employees, clients, customers, or supporters, they can help. They offer concept and story development, production planning, studio shoots, location shoots, live sound recording, non-linear editing, sound mixing, music scoring, DVD duplication and web video management.
Millwork Films was founded in April 2010 by the husband-and-wife filmmaking team of Eric Harper and Julie Cancio Harper. But this is not the first time they have worked together. Their creative partnership began in 1998, working on commercials and independent films in Boston, while Eric completed his MFA in Film Production at Boston University. Later, they spent several years working together in film production in Los Angeles.
Over time it became more and more important for them to work on meaningful projects that have a positive impact on their community. They relocated to Boardman, Julie's hometown, to start their own production company. Millwork Films, LLC, is here to help you get your story told through the art and craft of film and video production.
In order to start your project, the first step is to call and schedule a meeting. There are so many variables in film and video production that the best thing you can do, especially if you have never hired a video producer before, is to meet with them for an initial consultation. Bring everything you know about what you need -- and want -- the video to accomplish. And don't worry about any details you don't have yet. Eric and Julie will collaborate step-by-step to develop the elements of the proposed film or video.
After the initial meeting they will put our proposal in writing, including pricing, and email it to you. This is all part of the free consultation, which is their standard way of opening each new film or video project. When you're ready to move forward with a production, you sign a contract and start producing.
