CONVEYING EMOTION THROUGH MOTION PICTURE

CONVEYING EMOTION THROUGH MOTION PICTURE

My name is Sidney Baker-Green. I am a Cinematographer, Director of Photography, Editor, and Colorist. My career as a cinematographer started with photography. I've love chasing stories to tell when I am older. When I stumbled upon motion picture, it added a deeper layer to my creativity. Stories that I was able to freeze in time became stories I could bring back to life. I've been able to realize my artistic vision to the fullest with video; and, I hope to share that with YOU.

CREATED WITH HEART| DESIGNED WITH EMPATHY

While passion is the key to good work, being able to get the audience to feel what you want them to feel is the key to great work. Regardless of  if I am shooting for your restaurant,  or your personal brand, every shoot is approached with empathy in that regard.

CUSTOMIZED TO FIT YOUR NEEDS

Your project is unique in its own way. There simply isn't a "one size fits all approach" to creating effective photo and video content. 

From the moment you inquire about working together, the process is designed to specifically pinpoint not only a tangible outline of your vision, but also the best way to uniquely bring that vision to life in a way that connect the core values of your brand with your ideal client.

After we've setup a time to talk following the initial inquiry, our first meeting will focus on if we are compatible to work together. Compatibility is import because your project is important. To accomplish this, we will discuss the following: the details pertaining to the project you have in mind, the feelings and emotion you're trying to convey to your ideal client, the total budget you have with respect to video for the project, and time sensitive goals you have in mind for the project. If both of us are in agreement that we feel each other a good fit for the project at hand, then we will proceed to the next step. 

THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

initial consultation

Once we've determined if we are a good fit to accomplish your mission, I will draw up an outline of what it will take on my end to accomplish your needs. This scope of work outline for the project will help you visual see what it's going to take to accomplish your mission. In the same virtual portal, I will also send you a contract that we can review together to ensure it fits both of our needs. From there, the last thing to do is to sign and submit the deposit. It's time to hit the ground running.

THE PROCESS

A strategic plan is needed to accomplish any mission, and the same is true for your video project. Pre-production is simply getting all of our ducks in a row before we meet on set / location to execute shoot. This includes drafting a mood board, selecting location(s), drafting scripts / interview questions, creating a timeline that expects the unexpected, defining technical specifications such as gear for the shoot, and of course anything else not mention above that is unique to your project.

THE PROCESS

The day is here! Everything is ready to go. Just to make sure we are on the same page, we will meet one last time prior to shoot day to go over all the details together, and make any last minute adjustments if needed. Our goal is function like a well oiled machine on sink day: all parts firing in synchronization for maximum efficiency. Once everything is finalized, we will during our defined day(s) at location to capture any audio, video, and photo pertaining to the project.

THE PROCESS

After our days on set  / location come to an end, the post production and review process begins. This is simply where all the editing and magic happens that brings the vision to it's fully realized form. Once all material has been completed, an in-house inspection will be performed. Once all material has passed our production standards, it will be sent to you for a final review to make sure you're happy with the end result. From there, the deliverables will be sent to you via our pre-discussed method, as well as an implementation guide to get the best ROI on your investment.

LOCATIONS

I am a International Published Photographer, Director of Photography, Lead Editor, and Supervising Digital Colorist based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Michigan may be the home of my studio and production company; however, my work showcases my love for travel and destination work. Canada, The Islands of Hawaii, Florida, Los Angeles, and Northern California are some of the many places I've had the pleasure of working. Regardless of the location, my goal is to approach each unique project with the mission of connecting you with your audience, and creating digital handshake that builds awareness and trust with you ideal client.
