We have a curated band of scriptwriters who work under the aegis of The StoryWeavers Inc, to deliver content that's fresh, relevant and stays true to your original idea or message. From Idea to fully developed Content and Story to final Shooting Scripts.
It could be a skit for a Gujju-Panju wedding, or an award function or a birthday or an opening of a restaurant. Every event requires content. (Samples available on request)
To Document anything from personal stories and videos, a video for progeny about Grandmother's wisdom, to document any form or matter of reality you wish to keep safe. We videograph and create the documentary as well. Of course that will be a separate cost.
Every brand has a story to tell. We will tell your story with such aplomb that you will be wanting for more. We create other formats too based on the need of the brand.
About any event, expereince or journey of your life that you want immortalise and inspire others with or just merely share. It could be about abiding love your parents share, your grandmother's generosity and wisdom or her stock of recipes which has kept your family so healthy.
It could be about an app, product or service you choose to offer and dont have an ad-film budget.
1. A story tracing puppy into mature love, marriage, children and spiritual love through the life of a couple friend and her parents.
2. A story about a how a mobile app came into being and what is the offering of the app.
3. A mother-daughter-maasi story about music, story telling and dance as ancient and modern forms of expression.
4. A YouTube channel showcasing authentic Kutchi recipes and their customs and festivals built around it. We will be sharing ancient scientific principals governing these recipes and their combinations.
We did a film for Oasis India called 'Oasis'. It is a 5 minute film about a journey of 5 prostitutes who were abused as children and then led into prostitution and how they have found freedom, joy and a whole new life through Oasis India. It is a journey from darkness to light. Since it is a very sensitive journey and story, I cannot showcase it on my website or channel. But there will be testimonials from the coordinators of Oasis India about their journey with us.
1. We shoot on Ipad and Samsung Android S6.
2, We use our own lapel and multidirectional mic.
3. We use portable LED lights. We have a stand and selfie stick that we use to stabilize our 'cameras'.
4. We edit it ourselves.
5. We are completely professional in our planning. Everything about the shoot and edit is planned on an excel sheet so that all concerned are on the same page.
6. We are completely transparent, honest and open and would appreciate the same from anyone who engages us.
For a meaningful cause like Oasis which did not have a budget, we did it voluntarily and were just given conveyance. But the work was as professional or even more so than commissioned work. The payoff for us is that we had complete creative freedom and cooperation from the team at Oasis India. The joy in creating was present every moment of planning, shooting and editing.
1. How can you call yourself professional when you are not charging a fee?
We are professional. Period. What you are talking about it is the commercial end of it. We have faith people will come forward to pay for good work done professionally.
2. How will you survive and continue doing your work without charging a fee?
We have noticed working in a stringent budget makes you push the envelope and do remarkably good work. If we learn to work on no budget and low budget, we would make more profits in big budgets to reinvent and reinvest in our own company and its workings.
3. Will it be broadcast quality?
It will be shot in 1920X1080 format and output after edit will be MP4. It will not be quality that can be broadcast on any other channel other that YouTube.
