So what goes into an episode?

  • We typically film for about 1.5 hours. On arrival, we’ll discuss with you what we’re doing with the episode and how to feature your MOCs. Once we record the interview, we shoot B-roll for cut-aways.
  • Editing takes approximately 4-6 hours to complete. The editing process includes cutting down the conversation to a 10-minute episode, then overlaying B-roll to generate interest.
  • Further cut-aways are sourced and added, and titles are added. Fun facts and pro tips are researched and copywritten as the episode are edited and added to the timeline.
  • Finally, the episode goes to audio, where the soundtrack is added, and the voice is balanced and mastered.
    The episode then gets uploaded and scheduled on YouTube, where social media elements are added, as well as the accompanying article that was written and published.

All in all, it takes about 7-9 hours to complete a single 10min episode.
