We started planning for this testimonial video production about a year ago. MisterHomes is a real estate agency based in the Northwest Chicago suburb of Palatine, Illinois. However, they service the entire Chicago real estate market. They wanted to increase their suite of videos while educating potential clients about their real estate services.

We developed a video marketing plan that involved the video production of a real estate branding film. After that was created and posted on the company’s website, we produced a series of testimonial videos. They were filmed in Palatine, Schaumburg, and Wadsworth, Illinois over the course of two days. During pre-production, we learned more about each client’s story and really focused in on putting viewers in their shoes through the visuals we filmed and storytelling. All of the videos were edited. We also created a compilation and social media video cutdowns. The series was added to our DVD style streaming menus where a library of videos can be selected and viewed.

Every business has a story to tell. For MisterHomes, its two principals wanted to provide a more personalized real estate experience for their clients. Matt was working for a larger real estate firm. In their branding film, he recalls the time he purchased his first home; an experience he today helps many clients through. His brother-in-law, Dominic, liked to build things and appreciated architecture. In their company branding film, they wanted potential clients to hear their story.
Cary IL Video Production
In one day, we filmed the entire video with our DSLR video cameras, car-mounted GoPro camera, timelapse gear, and 3-axis stabilized gimbal.

In addition to filming in the field, our post production services included motion graphics in After Effects. We animated the company logo, their sales map, and lower third titles.

We also repurposed some of the b-roll we filmed on location and edited it together to use as a video background to the company’s website.

In anticipation of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Women’s Board Gala, we were hired to produce a film that would introduce attendees to what the club does. We wanted the film to connect with the audience on an emotional level. So, we filmed with our DSLR cameras at two of the nonprofit organization’s roughest clubs. We wanted the audience to focus on the kid’s stories. In order to achieve that, our creative approach included interviews shot against a white backdrop. Final post editing included a black and white effect. We also created a closing logo animation where the organization’s symbolic door would swing open to a collage of video images and revealed their logo.

From our client: “As the client, I was amazed at the work Nathan provided. I have worked with him on several projects and he always gets it spot on-from music to narrative to visual. Beautiful and meaningful work as always.”
