Our Process

The average project at Media One Creative takes between 6-8 weeks from kick-off to project delivery. At the start of the project we will supply you with a comprehensive workback schedule that outlines the entire process.

We offer our clients two rounds of revisions in the pre-production phase and the post-production phase of a project. For a live action video, we also include our clients in the talent audition and location scouting processes, as well as encouraging them to be on set for the video shoot if they so wish.
