The Process:

Video Production Planning

The production of the promo video for Yvon Building Supply started with a comprehensive planning session with the client to gain a better understand of who the company is, what their values are, the type of footage the client was eager to receive, as well as how the footage would be used. With a greater understanding of the company and their marketing goals, we were able to start logistically planning the shoot, as well as identify key messages to be conveyed.

This initial stage was crucial in aligning the project objectives with the client’s vision, ensuring a seamless narrative that perfectly encapsulates Yvon Building Supply’s core values and market distinction.

The Shoot

During production, our team employed state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to capture the heart of Yvon Building Supply’s operations. High-quality visuals and aerial footage of the warehouse, retail shop, and delivery operations provided a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the company’s day-to-day activities, showcasing their efficiency, dedication, and the breadth of their product offerings.

These elements combined to tell a compelling story of a business that is not only a supplier but a trusted partner in construction and renovation projects.


Post-production was where the collected footage was transformed into a cohesive story. Through expert editing, colour grading, and the use of dynamic storytelling, the raw footage was molded into an engaging and persuasive promo video. Special attention was paid to ensuring the video communicated the brand’s key selling points and differentiators, making it a potent tool for increasing brand awareness and driving business growth.
