Client Testimonial, Video Production Company Review

And lastly for today, here’s a recent testimonial/review from our client Prepdeck. They hired us to create a video for them for fundraising, and it’s raised over 14x their funding goal. Not too shabby.

Please describe your company and your position there.

Prepdeck is an innovative, patent-pending kitchen accessory that helps keep things organized, tidy and stress-free in the kitchen. I’m the founder and CEO.

For what projects/services did your company hire PatrickOrtman, Inc.?

We hired Patrick Ortman to help with the end to end execution of our first commercial and branding video.

What were your goals for this project?

Our objective was to create a sleek, forward-thinking and well-branded production. Ideally, the video aimed to balance an aspirational quality with the broader appeal of our product’s functional operations. We needed multiple edits that varied from 30 seconds up to two minutes in duration.

How did you select this vendor?

I assessed PatrickOrtman, Inc.’s previous work. After multiple conversations with Patrick (Founder & Partner, PatrickOrtman, Inc.), I felt confident his team was the right choice. He took the time to understand our needs and goals. I could immediately tell that he was thorough and could deliver a quality product in line with our vision, no matter what effort that required.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

Patrick took a deep dive into our business to understand our product, target customer base, and overarching goals. We worked collaboratively to write a script, select locations, and vet actors. From there, they flawlessly executed the project from start to finish. We had some last-minute needs and requests, which they always happily accommodated. They delivered what we needed time and time again.

What was your vendors’ project management or feedback process?

PatrickOrtman, Inc. maintained a robust line of communication throughout the entire process. They strictly managed timelines, resources, and deliverables. Patrick was always in control and made sure we felt informed at all times

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We used the commercial and brand video to successfully launch our brand in Summer 2018. The video assets PatrickOrtman, Inc. produced were a significant factor in our success. We beat our initial launch goals by more than ten times.  I have no doubt that Patrick’s work played a critical role in those stellar results.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The collaboration was excellent. PatrickOrtman, Inc made everything feel comfortable. Our communication was clean and crisp. It was helpful that we agreed on most things. Even when we had different opinions, our incredibly valuable conversations would lead to the best result.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Overall, the quality of the final result is the most notable criteria for our engagement. I admired the ease with which they worked. PatrickOrtman, Inc.’s willingness to adjust to our changing needs stood out as exceptionally impressive

Meet Prepdeck! Brand Film Video Production

EDIT: Now that Prepdeck has exceeded its funding goals by about 10,000%, here’s the brand film we put together for them:

And savvy entrepreneurs and companies have learned that having a killer crowdfunding video is the #1 most important tool in their social marketing arsenal. So they’re coming to video production companies and agencies like us to help them create commercial-quality videos for their products.

We helped write, produced, and did the post work on the Prepdeck crowdfunding video. Our Los Angeles studio worked with LaunchBoom! out of San Diego and the CEO of Prepdeck to show off what makes Prepdeck special. And it turned out great!

What’s Prepdeck? It’s a complete meal preparation system, with over 45 features and accessories to help you prepare, measure, and store ingredients. It’s really awesome (we only work on awesome crowdfunding projects, of course). I like it so much that I just bought one, not a giveaway mind you- using my own money. Here’s the link to learn more about Prepdeck and to back it on Indiegogo!

And of course, here’s the video we created plus a couple of promo shots taken by Andrew Johnston:
