March Blake Media specializes in character-driven documentaries that fit each client’s unique needs and budget. We offer three service lines, and each project begins with a free consultation and quote.
The process starts with a consultation to discuss audience and purpose. During this meeting, the schedule, budget, and scope will be set. For each option, our team will lead the creative editing process to craft the story and structure of the documentary, followed by technical editing to refine audiovisual elements. A rough cut and fine cut are provided for feedback and revision.
Option 1: Full Production
This option is for clients who want a glossy, high-end production that is managed from start to finish. March Blake Media will provide full production services for all footage.
Option 2: Direct & Edit
This option is for clients whose projects need to incorporate voices from a broad geographical cross-section and/or projects that would benefit from more intimate footage. Under the direction of March Blake Media, clients’ employees, staff members, and/or audiences participate in the filming process from their independent locations.
Option 3: Full Edit
This option is for clients who either have completed or will complete filming on their own as well as clients whose projects will consist exclusively of archival footage and assets. During consultation, we will determine what materials need to be transferred to March Blake Media for use.
This option is for film and video production professionals. As part of post-production crew, March Blake Media will work with provided footage and assets to craft a cohesive structure and compelling story that focuses on characterization and maintains high ethical standards and factual integrity in its selections. Revisions will be ongoing, and the final product will be a complete fine cut of the documentary, which will be picture-locked and ready to send to technical crew for final polishing.
This option is also for film and video production professionals. As a consultant, March Blake Media will work with the director and/or editor throughout any and all phases of the production process. With directors, we will work to make sure pre-production planning captures all relevant leads toward a compelling and well-rounded story and identify gaps or newly forming plots during production. With the editor, we will help craft a cohesive structure and compelling story that focuses on characterization and maintains high ethical standards and factual integrity.
