⎯⎯⎯ Creative Brief
The Earth Coast Approach
With the upcoming 2nd annual High School Science Quiz Bowl, Dinosaur Ridge is well positioned to continue to build awareness around paleontology, geology, and earth science.
Showcasing the driven & passionate work that the students put into this competition will be the key focus of the final produced video.
Also, with the coming growth and expansion of Dinosaur Ridge, it is important to communicate the importance of this facility to the greater public and its impact over the coming decades. Hosting and showcasing events like the High School Science Quiz Bowl helps to keep Dinosaur Ridge front and center for the core audiences interested in these subjects.
Dinosaur Ridge reaches a specific audience, while this audience is diverse in age, ethnicity, and other demographics, there are common unifying factors that differentiate this specific audience.
The filming style which we will apply to this project will first-and-foremost speak to this audience and capture their imagination.
Earth Coast and our team have extensive experience in communicating to unique and specific audiences. You can see a list of our diverse work and filming styles here: https://earthcoast.com/portfolio/
To help production and editing go smoothly, most of the work to create a video is done before you start filming during the pre-production phase.
This process includes deciding on the overall filming style, time, locations, subjects to film, and what you want the final product to look and sound like.
We pride ourselves in outlining a detailed plan and preparing as much about the film ahead of time as possible. We do this by creating and sharing a wholistic project board that visually outlines these points with assigned due dates, and folder structures to keep things organized and everyone on the same page with where the project is at. Communication is key and our team strives to keep you updated through every stage of the creative process.
When it is time to start filming, we use our production schedule, storyboard and project outline as our guiding compass, and creatively adjust wherever needed to best support the story and goal for the project.
For video, the magic comes together in the editing room.
Once everything is captured, we have the experience needed to only select necessary and engaging content that will captivate viewers. We look at what approach, method, and tools will best serve the overall goal and story and use them to our advantage.
This could include the use of, text, motion graphics, stock footage libraries, voiceover, images, sound effects, and other editing effects.
We also enjoy carefully listening to feedback and implementing suggestions and ideas that help serve the large and small picture goals of the video.
How you feel while watching a video is just as important as what you see, this is the role of music in the video.
We take a close look at what type of audio will best support the goals and style of the video and strategically utilize our Music Library with over 10,000 song selections and over 500,000 sound effects.
Our team will assess how music, FX, and graphics can be best utilized in your media and build flawless graphics and add specific sounds that will maximize the impact of your video.
⎯⎯⎯ Strategic Approach
The Science Quiz Bowl
Voiceover Narration to lead the story.
This will allow for an overall structure for the film, highlight the subjects, and let their personalities stand out more. We would help you create the script for this before we start filming. We can hire a professional voiceover artist to record the voiceover narration that will provide the structure for this film.
On-Screen text and graphics for support
If additional supporting content is ever needed throughout the video, we can use animated or non-animated overlayed visual aids such as pictures, videos, or graphics to accompany information/topics.
Capture high quality, relevant, and visually engaging video for b-roll
Due to the length of the video, having relevant, and creative footage/shots that look intriguing, well-composed, and properly-lit is critical in helping viewers enjoy watching the video, stay engaged throughout, and digest/process the information. Visiting the locations before filming will greatly help achieve this and allow things to flow smoothly during filming.
Have interviewees repeat questions within their answers
For interviews and conversations with subjects, encouraging the interviewee’s to repeat questions within their answers, instead of including the question from the interviewer, will help give a natural feel to the subject’s interviews and allow them and their story to remain the primary focus.
Showcase the Teams Through Tailored Interview Questions
This will allow the audience to personally connect with them and showcases the teams individual personalities, ambition, and uniqueness. This keeps the film dynamic and helps the audience stay invested in the final outcome.
