PRE-PRODUCTION: At the heart of any business project, planning is the single most critical factor in keeping things on time and on budget. This can also be the most neglected piece for a lot of producers and companies. We spend a great deal of our time planning and discussing expectations long before we ever pick up a camera. No one wants to unnecessarily re-shoot a scene or receive a finished production that does not meet expectations. That is why we emphasize pre-production planning where we will discuss goals and expectations.

These are just some of the considerations when looking to produce a professional media production.
PRODUCTION: Lights, camera, action! Well maybe not just yet.
We pack our production gear as needed for your production. High definition 16:9 widescreen format is what we generally shoot, however we can shoot in standard definition 4:3 if that is what you need.
We also are prepared with several light kits and sound equipment. If your production is large-scale, we have several trusted companies that specialize in lighting and sound, so our company can scale with your needs.
The difference between the amateurs and the professionals is quickly realized in set up. Paying close attention to lighting a scene and recording high quality digital sound is what separates the two very quickly. Amateurs are ready to "run and gun" shooting as soon as they arrive. Professionals need to take a few moments at the start of a shoot to make certain that the scene is lit correctly and the sound is of high quality. In addition, the things that seem little can become a nightmare in post production, like white balancing a camera, or making frame rate adjustments. Act Naturally Studios will ensure that all technical aspects of your production are set in place long before we press record.
