ABOUT BERAD STUDIO

Berad Studio is an award-winning, Hawaii-based, video production company that has traveled globally to produce marketing, brand, and documentary films for social media and traditional distribution.   Impactful and authentic storytelling is our passion, and the driving force behind our creative and technique. We create beautiful, memorable and strategic content aligned with your brand’s identity and business strategies.

WHAT WE DO

We specialize in producing strategic video solutions for clients that blend beautiful imagery, inspiring narrative, engaging graphics, and emotional music to communicate the essence of a client’s vision, story, and spirit, and share what makes their brand, products, or services unique.

WHO WE ARE

We are curious about life and love learning, meeting new people, traveling, and new experiences.  We have a fetish for filmmaking and storytelling.  We consider it a joy and privilege to be able to do what we love—documenting images and special moments and communicating our client’s stories to the world.

We are so grateful to our clients and partners who enable us to do what we love for a living!

HOW WE DO IT

Great video content begins with comprehensive Pre-Production.  During this phase, we discuss your goals for your video project; learn about your business, products, and services; develop the storyboard and script for filming; obtain necessary permits; hire film crew and actors; arrange for equipment and supplies; and attend to the myriad of details that must take place before film production can begin.

During the Production phase, we work effectively and efficiently to shoot clear and compelling film footage that can be woven into a final video.  It generally takes at least 8 hours of filming to get enough footage for a 1-2 minute final video.

The tedious Post-Production phase occurs behind the scenes when we take the raw film footage and craft it into a compelling video that captures the hearts and minds of viewers.

Our goal at Berad Studio is to make the entire video-production process as seamless and painless as possible.  Projects are completed on time, on budget, and on brand (within the confines of our statement of work) or the overage is on us!
