In this guide, we'll break down the typical steps involved in our video production process at Olympix Media to provide you with a comprehensive overview.

Video Production Process Step 1:


Laying the right groundwork is essential to developing a great video.

​Pre-production is where we figure out the best plan of action for your brand's vision. These are the steps involved:

  • Concept Development: This involves brainstorming ideas, defining goals, and outlining the overall vision for the video. ​At the concept development stage, we collaboratively decide on the look, feel and style.

  • Scriptwriting: This depends on the style of video, but if the video requires voiceover or talent, we will craft a compelling script that aligns with the objectives of the video and resonates with the target audience.

  • Storyboarding: Creating a visual blueprint of the video through sketches or illustrations, outlining the sequence of shots and visual elements. This helps us plan out what’s needed on the shoot day and helps piece the footage together in post-production so it is aligned with the concept.

  • Location Scouting: Identifying and securing suitable filming locations based on the requirements of the script.

  • Talent Casting: If actors or presenters are needed, casting sessions are conducted to select the right talent for the roles.

  • Production Planning: Detailed planning of logistics, schedules, crew requirements, and equipment needs.

Video Production Process Step 2: Production

This is where the magic happens.

The video production team will the client on location to film the agreed content, equipped with a copy of the production schedule to refer to.

Here's a breakdown of what's involved:

  • Filming: The production crew captures A-roll footage according to the script and storyboard, ensuring technical and creative aspects are executed seamlessly. Here at Olympix Media, we use 4K cinema-grade cameras, with full lighting and sound set-ups. We strive for an immersive experience, elevating your project with a focus on quality and creativity.

  • Directing: The director oversees the filming process, guiding actors, camera operators, and crew members to achieve the desired vision.

  • Audio Recording: Sound technicians record clean and high-quality audio, including dialogue, narration, and ambient sounds.

  • B-roll Footage: In addition to main A-roll shots, supplementary footage (B-roll) is captured to enhance storytelling and visual interest.

Video Production Process Step 3: Post-Production

It's time to bring the video to life.

The Editor will use industry-standard Adobe Creative Suite software to piece the video together, colour grade, clean up the audio, add background music, include relevant branding, titles, motion graphics, and in general, make sure the video looks exactly as planned in pre-production.

Here's what you can expect:

  • Editing: Footage is meticulously edited to arrange sequences, trim unnecessary content, and add transitions, effects, and graphics.

  • Sound Design: Audio elements are refined, including mixing dialogue, adding music, and enhancing sound effects.

  • Colour Grading: Adjusting and enhancing the colours and tones to achieve a cohesive and visually appealing look.

  • Review and Revisions: Clients review the draft and provide feedback for revisions to ensure the video aligns with their expectations. Here at Olympix Media, we use for streamlined collaboration with our clients.

Understanding the video production process empowers clients to collaborate effectively with video production professionals, ensuring a smooth and successful project from concept to completion.

Each phase plays a crucial role in delivering a compelling and impactful video that captures attention, communicates messages, and achieves desired outcomes.
