EXAMPLE PROPOSAL

OUTDOOR SAILING ADVENTURES

PROMO VIDEO PROPOSAL (photo Overlay)

INTRODUCTION.

This proposal is for the creation of a promotional video of the sailing programs offered by outdoor sailing adventures! This new promo video will bring fresh and exciting insight into the incredible experience a sailing trip can be, for an attendee or a group as a whole. We would be creating something that is captivating for both teens, parents, and potential supporters. 

Watching the video will help to ease potential concerns an attendee may have about spending any length of time onboard, but also spike their curiosity by showing how exciting and engaging life on a ship really can be. We will capture the epic nature of sailing–as well as the friendship forming, confidence building, engaged learning and personal growth that can be experience during their time aboard.

HOW WE PLAN TO ACCOMPLISH THESE GOALS.

OUTDOOR FILMMAKING IS WHAT WE DO AT LEFTCOAST. NOTHING ELSE. 

It's what sets our work apart from the rest. We focus exclusively on outdoor filmmaking. It's how you found us!

Creating great outdoor promo films is what we do, and what we do better than anyone else.

With over half a decade of sailboat filming exeperience, we are incredibly well suited for the task. 

It is no small challenge to board a tallship and create the level of videos that we create. The experience and skillset has been hard won. Many mistakes, issues, unforseen obstacles, and lessons learned along the way. Now that we've been at it for a while, we've built a skillset and approach that allows us to create incredible results for our clients. 

PRODUCTION PLAN & DETAILS.

THE PROOF IS IN THE WORK

One of our sailing clients SALTS, has seen over a 30% increase in program signups ahead of schedule from previous booking years. 

We worked with them in 2017 to shoot a promo video and instagram campaign, which performed brilliantly for them. 

WE CREATE VIDEOS THAT PAY FOR THEMSELVES

We don't set out to just make beautiful videos, or even simply to tell a great story. We set out to combine both those things with a direct effort to increase profits for our clients. We use video to solve problems.  

Creating beautiful films takes a lot of investment up front. But how much worse is that investment if there is never a return on it! 

We see countless other production companies make this mistake over and over again. Just making a generic video, because they feel that's what you ought to do. 

What a waste. 

We see video as an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful investment that has great returns if done correctly. It's no fun making videos that barely break even. 

We make videos that turn a profit, and make returns for our clients.

THE TOTAL PROJECT COMMISSION: $$$$ (Photo Overlay)

OUR QUOTES ARE ONE PRICE

The proposals we create are one price. That way there is no surprises or randomly increased costs. In this case the only opportunity for additional expense would be if we went with the July trip. We would then need to take into account travel to oregon and back. 

WE NEED YOUR COOPERATION

In order to pull off a project like this, we need the cooperation, and collaboration of your staff on the shoot days. We have experiences with working around programming, but it's great to view this as a team effort. 

NEXT STEPS

Next step would be to discuss on questions you may have. From there if we feel this would be a great fit, then we would draft a contract and proceed from there.

FINAL DELIVERABLES

  • The final deliverable of this project will be a promo video 2-3 minutes of length.

  • The file will be available in both 4k Ultra HD, as well as HD formats.

  • A short social trailer. We also like to included a 30-45 second version of the video to share on various social channels. This video helps to drive traffic and awareness to the full length promo. (Included is 30min-1hour of consulting to help optimize the different uses of the video)

  • There will be 4 social video edits credit in addition to the trailer, that are great for social media promotion
