At Outmost, we focus on making film and animated video production work exceptionally well for brands. Together, we define what you want to achieve, who you want to engage, and where you'll reach them. Then we guide you through a rock-solid creative process with collaboration at its core, so you get a video that does exactly what you set out to achieve.
Every project is unique, and every client different. For us, getting the most out of your video means making the creative process effective and highly enjoyable.
We’ve built a rock-solid creative process with collaboration at its core. Each creative milestone has been designed to ensure we're maximising what you want to communicate. You'll always know what to expect, and when. And you'll be crystal clear on what is being produced.See our process
In our industry, technical terms get bounded around a lot - 2D animation, 3D motion graphics, explainer videos, branded content, corporate video production, animated infographics... These are the tools of our craft, but let's cut through the jargon, and help you decide on the best approach for your film or animated video production.
Wherever you like. That said, depending on the initial brief, there may be restrictions relating to licensing. For example, for some paid advertising channels, voice over and music licence fees are more expensive, so unless we've paid for the additional licensing, restrictions may apply. It's also worth noting that we'll want to design media for chosen channels from the ground up to make them most effective.
Yes, you'll be the full copyright holder. We can even send you over all the raw assets too if you like. Once your final invoice is paid, we automatically sign over all copyright to you and you're free to use the assets how you please.
Around 6-10 weeks. Largely, it depends on how much time you'd like to review each stage of the video production process before moving on. For example, some clients are happy with a 2 day sign-off period, whilst others need 4-5. We'll discuss your needs and the best timeline in our initial Discovery call.
This is a question (understandably) we get asked a LOT. So to make life easy and give you a sense of how much different types of video production cost, we've created a guide - complete with video examples and their associated costs. Head over to our contact page where you can request our guide.
In our Discovery session, we'll explore where you intend to use the media and then suggest the best approach. For example, if we're creating an Explainer Video, we'll suggest we create some short, looping snippets from the main animation to use on social. These have been shown to be far more effective than posting the full video, however, we encourage you to post all media on social as we've also seen some fabulous results using long-form media too.
Yes, and it's vital we do. Every part of the production process is always a collaboration with you, so we're more than happy to explore creative routes and pre-prepared scripts. However, the narrative forms the backbone of the creative, and there's lots of nuances that will impact how the video flows, so we'll want to make sure the concept/script aligns with creating exceptional video content.
As many as you like. Seriously. Most production companies will limit you to 3 amends, but we think this is crazy. It's crucial we're all happy with each stage of the process, or we'll be running up hill from there on. That said, we do have one rule. Once you've signed off a stage, we may add additional fees if we're asked to revise that stage later. For example, if we've completed the animation and you ask for a change to the visual storyboard, we'll often charge additional for this as it requires a rework of the animation. It very, very rarely happens though thanks to our rock-solid video production process.
Yes. From the very outset we'll establish if you intend to use the media internationally. For these audiences, we'll want to ensure the script doesn't include any colloquialism or phrases only UK audiences will understand. We'll translate the script into your chosen language and provide you with VO samples. We'll then retime the video to perfect match the intended script pacing.
Most certainly. For us, every single aspect of the video production process has to align and be perfected in order to create high engagement - including the concept/script, visual design, film, animation and sound design. We manage the whole process from start to finish.
An Explainer Video tends to be a bit of an umbrella term that encompasses lots of marketing goals. For us, we define an Explainer Video as media designed to increase website conversion rates. They can be used on social media platforms to great effect, however, creating short snippets from the main video tend to be much more effective - and we recommend tailoring them for each platform.
We create engaging video content by getting clear on what you want to achieve, who you want to attract and where you'll be showing your content. One of the things we love most about our industry is that no one part of production process creates engagement on its own. It's truly a team effort - between client and agency - and every part of production; from concept and scripting, to visuals, animation, and sound design.
Our core mission is to produce video that engages your audience based on what you want to achieve. For increasing website conversion rates, that's often an Explainer Video. For brand awareness, we'll produce a Commerical, Brand Story or Social Ad. For PR Campaigns, we'll produce a range of media to work across different platforms. Everything else is really a subset of these core video types, for example, animated infographics, event videos, motion graphics, video production and 3D/2D animation.
In our initial Discovery session, we build a firm foundation for all the creative stages to follow. We get clear on what needs to be communicated, your brand guidelines, and the audience we want to engage. Each stage in the production process has been designed with collaboration in mind - and we talk you through our thinking, capture your feedback and upload new versions on a specialist collaborative platform. Most importantly, you'll always know what to expect and when.
Simply wonderful. We believe the whole process should be a joy to be part of. We do what we do because we love to make videos exceptionally effective, and that can only happen if the process is hugely enjoyable for all parties involved. We are curious souls, driven by wisdom and fuelled by creative freedom.
