Our commercial video project with Creative Deviants was excellent, done quickly, and our finished product was superb.Oct 10, 2016Verified
Rand is an awesome professional who has an eye for making everyday stories extraordinary. He helped us make a short product/founder video, and I am very very happy with not only the result, but also with how he guided us through something we were not comfortable with, i.e., talking in front of a camera, with patience and a sense of humor. I would definitely work with him again.Sep 14, 2015Verified
My name is Alan CK Sweet and I am a song writer, music producer, and the former drummer of Bad Juju seen worldwide in front of over 150 million viewers on MTV. I contracted Ran to do a recent video production for my upcoming cd production called: ASP "Dig-It-Al" cd #2 that has featured artists such as Alex Acuna recording for me on this studio/filmed production. I found Ran and his video production work on location to be top notch quality work and him personally to be extremely professional. I would contract him again for our future productions anytime. I would give Ran Courtney a five star rating on his work. Most Respectfully, Alan CK Sweet of Www.IAMWST.Org or Alan CK Sweet on LinkedIn email@example.comSep 11, 2015Verified
Wedding and Event Videography
Working with Rand has been great! He really elevated the level of quality of our annual event video, from the video quality to the editing and final product. He was extremely easy and professional to work with in this whole process, which made my job easier particularly the day of the event. I would highly recommend Rand for your business video project.Oct 27, 2014Verified
We hired Rand & Creative Deviants to create a time-lapse video of a mural for our company. It turned out beautifully. He was very professional, easy to work with, and produced great quality work!Mar 19, 2019VerifiedCreative Deviants L.A.'s reply
Thanks Kelsey, what an amazingly cool project to be a part of, hope to work with you again!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?No. Because every project is different, standard pricing doesn’t really work. We do our best to give a rough estimate based on what a client posts but a brief conversation can help us give a much more accurate quote. Also, we have found that clients really enjoy getting more than one quote from us. Rather than X will cost $7,500, we often will submit in our proposal a quote within a clients’ budge but will also include what can be done if that budget can be stretched, even slightly. For example, our proposal might include that a budget of $11,000 will allow for a full-day rental of a drone and with the higher budget, we can also have that “hero shot” of someone wearing your product in a luxury jet you really were dreaming of.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Because the needs of our clients vary from project to project, it’s difficult to give an exact answer for our process. Typically we listen to each clients needs and vision - if they have any, which is totally fine and happens more often than not. From there we work on any combination of pre-production, which includes: concept, story development, script writing, location scouting, agreeing on style and tone, and/or casting. From there we go into production where we shoot the written scripts. After that we enter post-production, which include editing, color correction, any animation or graphics, and music. We typically send the client a rough cut in which they give their notes and we make the appropriate adjustments until we have a final cut. This entire process can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months, depending on the scope of project. It’s worth noting that not all clients require all aspects of what we do. Our services are a la carte and we always are happy to deliver as much, or as little, as each client wants. For example, filming a conference doesn’t require as much, or any, story development, where creating a Facebook ad doesn’t require as much post-production as creating an animated explainer video.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Combined, our employees have multiple degrees and forms of training. With that said, we have found that cumulative hands-on experience has been far more helpful than any formal education in film or tv. The Creative Deviants team has over 30 years experience in the industry and as one of our writers put it “Though learning about narrative structure was helpful, nothing makes you learn to get the right shot quite like filming in Alaska with sub-zero weather and only 2 hours of good sunlight per day.”
