The Storytelling Process
Our partnership with you begins with listening. We listen to your story. We then help you craft your message, develop a unique creative strategy, and identify the most effective avenues to communicate your story to your target audience.
Whether it’s an intimate one-on-one interview or a large commercial shoot on a busy downtown avenue, Castle Gate Media understands what will make your production day successful – attention to detail, and a singular focus on effectively communicating your story.
Once the cameras stop the creativity continues, and your story comes alive. The pace of the editing, the choice of music, incorporating simple graphics or lively, full-screen animations – every post-production decision is customized to your specs, for your audience.
At the helm of Castle Gate Media are Tom Keith and Robert Ryan. Their success is the result of a perfect combination of award-winning media skills – Robert’s track record as an innovative Writer/Producer; Tom’s unique visual artistry both behind the camera and when overseeing post-production. High-quality, engaging content is our calling card - the reason clients first find their way to our door.
The customizable experience, the collaborative atmosphere, and the personal service are why our clients return again and again to Castle Gate Media.
“We’re well aware that there are many production companies out there. But we also know that what sets us apart is our excellent client services. We don’t just work for clients, we partner with them. I come at this work from a creative writing background. So, staring at a blank page, consumed by uncertainty (and alcohol and pizza)… I’m familiar with that challenge. That’s why the best part of my job is when a client comes to us with a great story to tell, but no idea how to tell it. Because then we get to use our visual creativity to solve their problem, and bring that story to life.”
“Anybody can put up a camera and pull the trigger. But it takes our level of client service to produce the high-quality video products and gratifying experiences we deliver. My greatest satisfaction is that every one of our clients trusts us. They trust that we’re genuinely listening to them. They trust that we’re telling their story in the most compelling style - that the interviews will look great, and our camera work will be provocative and engaging. And they trust that everyone involved will have a great time working together. We take pride in that.”
