HOW DO WE DO THAT?

_MG_0096.jpg

We asked some recent agency clients to describe the value we bring to them. In their opinion, these are the qualities that set Mills James apart:

Largest capacity in the country. Within our walls lies a surprising armada of production, post and distribution resources, even compared to the coasts. Smaller boutiques can clog up with just a few projects, but you won’t hear “we’re too slammed” from us. Check out our facilities lineup below backed by 160 in-house artisans and craftspeople. Our agency clients regularly tell us our capacity and breadth make things so much easier for them.

A flexible production partner. Our teams are an extension of your team, so we can handle a small piece or support the whole project in any configuration you need. We can help with storyboards, animatics or test spots. We can pick up a quick social video project or handle the production complexities of a national campaign: the casting, shoot, visual effects, motion graphics, audio sweetening and national spot delivery.

Coastal quality at "modern" prices. One of our clients recently flew to the coast to produce a TV campaign to run in 17 states. After they spent most of their budget, they came to Mills James and asked us to finish the project. We did, and our client told us they couldn’t tell the difference between our work and the California production company's.

Our producers, directors, DPs, designers and editors execute their projects with the same passion and talent of their coastal peers [and without the eyebrow-raising charges that are being met with increased scrutiny.]

Broader canvasses. Brands don’t need just spots, they need spots, social media campaigns, experiential events, augmented reality ideas, sales training efforts, content marketing engines, you name it. As one of the nation’s most comprehensive video and event production companies, we have the experience to produce multi-platform brand content for any storytelling experience.

An enjoyable journey as much as a successful destination. All of us who work in the production industry choose our attitudes every day: we can either dive into any challenge with engaged curiosity or resist every left turn that forces us to pivot quickly. Our personal reactions often mean the difference between clients feeling energized and empowered or stressed and always trying to smooth ruffled feathers. We want you to feel energized and empowered always. It's more fun that way.
