Pluto Pictures is a full-service video production agency in Calgary, Alberta. We’re formally-trained award-winning filmmakers with decades of experience in video production and marketing, but it’s our dedication to strategy and storytelling that sets us apart. We believe great storytelling can make the world care about anything (even if that thing is a tiny rock floating through space 5 Billion kms away).
We lean on our years of experience in Strategic Marketing to help develop your project. Why video? Who is your audience? How are we positioning your story for them? If you need help answering these questions, we’re there.
We’re as comfortable on a keyboard as we are behind the lens. We have years under our belts as Copywriters for websites and marketing agencies. We’re also award-winning scriptwriters and have written nationally-recognized screenplays, on top of hundreds of corporate video scripts, commercials and radio spots.
This is where we shine. With crews ranging from a single videographer to a full commercial film set, and locations from your offices or a studio to the great outdoors, we cater our video production to the needs of your project. We bring infectious energy and enthusiasm to our sets, and we make even the most camera-shy person feel comfortable in the spotlight.
Post-Production is where it all comes together. Whether we filmed the project, or you need an Editor for your existing footage, we’ve got an award-winning team with years of experience in Editing, Colour Grading, Graphics and Sound Editing.
If you want it to move onscreen, we can make it happen. Animated logos, captions and graphics, even full-on cartoons or explainer videos; we have a soft-spot for animation and we love doing it all.
We’ve helped dozens of international brands, agencies and video producers from around the world film their projects in Calgary. We act as an extension of your team and ensure the footage we capture meets your standards, while fitting seamlessly into the story you’re telling.
Great videos aren’t made by accident. We’ve been honing our video production process for years to deliver a service that’s easy, customized to your needs, and keeps your story front and centre.
STORY AND YOUR NEEDS
We take the time early on to customize our process to your story. We’ll start by asking big questions, discovering the story you want to tell, looking at your project holistically, and putting together a video production plan that fits your unique needs, schedule and budget.
IT’S ALL IN THE
Once you’ve given the greenlight, you’ll have a clear understanding of all the various logistical and creative prep activities we’ll be undertaking. Whether it’s workback schedules and creative briefs or casting calls, location surveys and storyboards, we make sure everything is ready to go before cameras roll.
STORY TO LIFE
Yelling “Lights! Camera! Action!” to a crew of 20 people doesn’t work for corporate video anymore. With the exception of big budget commercials, our shoots are more intimate, more efficient and less invasive. Whether it’s a half-day in your office, or multiple days in a variety of locations, you can expect a smooth and enjoyable production process.
WHERE IT ALL
Footage, graphics, animations, sound and music all come together. By the time we get to Post-Production on your video, you’ll already have a clear understanding of the schedule, and we make the feedback process painless as we move from Rough to Final Cut. When it’s time to go live, we can upload and deliver the video to your desired platforms, or send you the file to distribute as you please.
At Pluto Pictures, we pride ourselves on friendly, responsive service and great relationships. Whether you’re looking for corporate video production or just want to start a conversation, please send us an email we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
