"Only if I work so long that I fall unconscious and suffer a head injury do I feel like I've actually done my job correctly."
Northwoods Revolution is a Chicago-based commercial production company. We specialize in digital cinematography and editing, and are a one-stop-shop capable of taking a project from inception to final delivery.
We are experienced in working with a wide variety of clients, such as Leo Burnett, Optimum Nutrition, Red Robin, and many more. We are efficient, easy to work with, and hold ourselves to the highest standards of production, all while maintaining competitive rates.
We are available to travel for most projects. Don't hesitate to contact us with an out-of-state or out-of-country proposal.
You come across one of our advertisements, or are referred to our website by the good word of a past client. Upon reviewing our work and deciding that Northwoods may be a fit for your production, you find our contact information, conveniently located under the contact section. After a quick introduction you brief us on your project, and we come up with a quote and basic treatment, outlining the story and visuals of your film.
We draw up storyboards, and more treatments, if necessary. We refine the budget, and discuss financing the production. Locations are scouted, approved and booked, along with any necessary casting and hiring of specialized freelancers. Potential background music ideas are tossed around. A contract is drawn up, approved by both parties, and signed.
Everything goes to hell. Just kidding! Northwoods begins to work its magic by putting everything outlined in preproduction into practice. Use of RED cameras, Canon DSLRs, dollys, cranes, and quadcopters is implemented, and dailies are sent out and discussed.
Your project is assembled quickly and efficiently and a rough first draft is sent to you for your consideration. You send back notes, and we do whatever those notes tell us to do. This process can take anywhere from one or two drafts to ten drafts. After all this is done, we deliver the product and raw footage in the pre-determined form, you pay us, and everyone is happy!
