Sometimes a client comes to us with a fully formed plan. More often, they know what idea they need to get across, but are less clear on how to execute. Tom11 specializes in working creatively with clients to develop concepts that are appropriate to the project, and fit within the budget. We have great ideas just arcing off our circuit boards all the time, so let us shock you with a new way of looking at your problem. Because of our years of experience, we have probably already made many of the mistakes that you might make- but we've learned from them. Let us help you, and we'll both be more proud of the outcome.
Capturing great images can make all the difference when you are trying to tell an engaging story. Other times, being at the right place, and the right time, are much more important than what lens, filter, and framerate you are shooting at. Tom11 has shot hand-held documentary style and mounted bullet cameras on vehicles for Discovery Networks and NBC Sports. On the other end of the spectrum, we have worked with fancy $50000 RED camera systems on tripods, jibs, and steadicams. We have shot at the Bonneville salt flats, cabled from the top of an aerial tram, in forests and underwater around the world. We know how to use the right gear to capture the action, and to tell a story.
Tom11 has worked with a wide range of video edit systems, but the software is nothing more than a tool. Our editors have decades of experience, as well as high-falutin Masters degrees in Computer Graphics and Fine Art from various Universities across the country. We also have a wider range of experience that comes from working in different media- running a digital audio workstation actually flexes the same muscles as editing video, and this cross training makes Tom11 stronger than your average EditDroid.
What do you do when there is an element of a story that can't be filmed? Some concepts are just too large, small or wiggly and etherial to be photographed directly. For those cases, animation is the best way to get the message across. Animation could take the form of hand-drawn 2D cell-style, 3D renderings, stop-motion, cut-out style (think Monty Python) , or some combination of 2D and 3D graphics along with still photos, video, text, and more. Tom11 has worked extensively with animation and compositing packages to create these types of animations.
