Our mission changes each calendar year.
Our values are built to last forever.
We must respect the fact that our clients are trusting us with their life's work. We must have higher standards than our clients in every area.
Everything about our company is open source, in good weather and bad. We are open about our financials, our process, our results and more.
No client - ever -should have to chase information about the project they hire us for. We communicate clearly, completely, and we solve problems before they happen.
We are grateful - and honored - to serve our clients. We’re grateful for our team, so we can share credit when they contribute to our projects.
Every part of every story must be told with excellence and skill. We put the designers in position to win.
Our choices are always deliberate, careful and informed from experience, and our clients see the care in all of our work.
We respect our clients enough to not re-invent the wheel with every project.
We learn from every delivery and make all our future clients benefit from our lessons, and put all of our designers and clients in position to win.
No customer - ever - should be asked to pay for a templated work that looks the same as someone else’s.
We make original metaphors, unique music, and from-scratch art. On every project.
Our work shouldn’t be a neverending grind.
We want a fun process, fun projects. Even the most technically complex software can be made to be fun.
Here are some things people ask before ordering their Simplifilm.
Yes. We offer the Impeccable Experience. If any part of any project is not delivered on time and at our standards, you can get a full refund. Of course, you have to do your part and confirm or correct our decisions fast. Details at agreement.
We have a three-phase process (which ties into payments)
This is where we get a creative brief to you, determine what your video should say, and set a goal. We also learn about you and your competitors.
We write the script, get voice talent and more.
Production is where we assemble all the parts and deliver an advance copy.
Finalization & Launch
