Repast Studios: Agile Video Production

 

A genuine story comes from the people who live it—your employees, clients, and partners. Rather than working from a script or storyboard, Repast prioritizes connecting with people.

We listen deeply. Throughout the process of discussing your project, gathering footage, and producing and editing video, we’re open to discovery and ready to move forward in response to what unfolds.

Hardly anybody is naturally comfortable in front of the camera. So we prioritize crafting an atmosphere of ease and openness. To invite storytelling, we balance careful coaching with respect, attention, and curiosity.

 

Chris is first and foremost a brilliant storyteller. He has a way of soaking up information and crafting a story that gets right to the heart of the message. Often times pulling out stories that no one else saw. On top of that, he always captures beautiful video to support the story. I never have to worry about the project when Chris is involved.

The more we show up and pay attention, the more great stories emerge. When you choose an ongoing engagement with Repast, we’re present regularly. We take in what’s happening and continually produce video that weaves into the life and communication demands of the company.

in-house collaboration

Let’s say you’re a one-person communications department and video is on your plate, along with 20 other things. You know what you’re doing. But you don't quite have the skills or staffing to create video at the level you’d like. Repast can complement your skills. And we can mentor staff to build your in-house capacity.


 

Contributors

Repast’s video crew can scale up for large jobs, work lean to maximize your production dollar, or anything in between. Chris Bohnhoff, founder, assembles and leads the appropriate team for each project.
