VIDEO BROCHURE CUSTOMIZATION
by 3rd Coast Digital Films -

The video we are offering is based on an original program designed by 3rd Coast especially for Star Service of Baton Rouge. This production cost Star more than 35,000.00 - but they have made their money back many many times over.
You receive the value of the Star presentationfor a fraction of thieir cost, due to the generosity of Mike Miller at Star.
We customize the original presentation for you so that your company is front and center - with no identifiable trace of Star or any other company in the production.

It looks and feels like the video was made only for your company. The prices we have set reflect our expertise in developing and marketing this video template to you, and the quality of the 3rd Coast production team that conforms the template to your business.

If you wish, varying levels of customization are possible, and are detailed below.
Currently the following companies and branches are using our HVAC preventive maintenance video.

YOUR CUSTOMERS ARE GETTING THE WHOLE STORY!

With exception of interviews in higher levels of customization, each program is approximately the same length, but we can shorten it or lengthen as suits your needs.

The levels differ by shooting on location, or adding customer testimonials or if your company principal decides to appear in the video.

When we customize a video, we make it look like yours and yours alone, we focus on your company identity - and you decide what images to include. This keeps the customer focused on your Company Name, and on the business at hand.
