Measured Results

We encourage our clients to track the results of the cinematic stores and commercial cuts to determine who watched, when, where, how many times, how many shares, how much they watched so that you can see the effectiveness of the campaign.

It's About Reusable Assets


Numerous Short Cuts
We design long play stores so that we can also produce multiple short social media cuts to maximize the lifespan of the films.


Powerful Internal Stories
Our team will unearth numerous internal stories among your employees as part of our discovery process that provides valuable company insight and material for additional videos in the future and brand clarity to C-Suite executives. These testimonials can be used as assets for future cinematic storytelling.


Extensive B-Roll Footage
Long play films require a great deal of B-roll to visualize the story. BSM catalogs this footage by topic to be reused for multiple social media, presentation, and future storytelling purposes.


Fresh Regular Content
The ultimate goal of a video production campaign is to create enough assets to produce regular monthly content. This not only increases social media engagement but more importantly, it changes perception and drives action.
