These days, it is so easy and affordable to make videos, that consumers expect to be able to not just listen to a band, but watch them too! Most musical acts are in fact discovered on YouTube. Look no further than our *clear throat* national treasure, Justin Beiber.
The types of videos can range from live performance, to high concept music video - and everything in between.
A very personalized process
Writing and Concept
Nobody knows your band’s identity more than you. This is why we work closely with you in the conceptual and writing stage. You have chosen to use the powerful medium of video. Let’s make sure we best use it to your advantage. Our budget plays a big role in determining what type of concept we will come up with.
We like to get on the same page early on. So let’s determine a budget together that both sides will be comfortable with, and figure out the best product that we can output within that budget.
Often times we get asked, “how much does a 30 second video cost”. We always reply by saying, “30 seconds of ‘Thriller- Michael Jackson’ costs millions, 30 seconds of viral sensation ‘Somebody That I Used to Know – Walk off the Earth’ cost nothing to make, and has been viewed over 6 million times!” Check the video out on youtube if you haven’t seen it. The point is, budget doesn’t determine what we are trying to say, it determines how many liberties we can take saying it.
By this point we are totally on the same page. Now let us do what we do best. Our experienced team of filmmakers will take our concept and turn it into a reality. Whether it’s a high concept narrative video, or a quick and dirty video with one shooter/director, you can be sure with with our high end production quality equipment, your video will have the look and feel of a professional production, no matter the budget.
Editing and Uploading
This is another process where you become vital. We aren’t finished the production until you are satisfied. You can even sit in on editing sessions to make sure that we end up with perfection.
Now, let’s put together a plan to upload your video so that it gets the most exposure possible.
How do we know you will love working with us?

I’ve worked with Reel Mensch Studios since 2011, and every time they are extremely passionate, professional and profusely creative.
— Nabeal Mansour, Media Masters Creative Communications
They quickly became invested in our project and genuinely treated us like 'co-producers'. Their ability and willingness to listen to our vision is what sets them apart. Jared was able to take our idea with specific targets and key deliverables and turn it into a beautiful story for us to share widely, and proudly.

I listed a house at midnight. The Realtor called the next morning as her Vancouver client saw the video in the wee hours and wanted to fly here to buy the house. They arrived the next day, and the deal was done.

As a former TV Broadcaster turned Realtor, I can safely say that Reel Mensch Productions is top notch.
