What’s the Mintox Media Difference?

Mintox Media’s director, Russell Brown, will translate your product, services and passion into snappy clips for maximum impact.

There are three big reasons my regular clients keep coming back:

Award-winning storytelling

Corporate videos may be non-fiction, but they still require a clear flow of information to take every viewer on a personal journey. I scaffold details in a logical order, so your target audience doesn’t get confused or bored.

Customised videos

No templates here! Every video I create is carefully tailored to engage your target audience while meeting your budget and deadline. This ensures the video meets your specific goals and you don’t end up wasting money on unnecessary stuff.

Reliable service

I’ve been making corporate videos long enough to know the common pitfalls of production and how to avoid them. Mintox Media’s streamlined workflow ensures your video is always delivered on time, with no silly errors.

How much does a corporate video cost?

I don’t like to be vague, but with each video tailored to a specific project, it’s difficult to provide a generic quote. A very basic video can cost as little as $1,000, while more complicated projects involving actors, aerial footage and 3D graphics can be over $50,000. If you can provide an indication of your budget up front, I will happily explain what can be achieved for that amount.

What information do I need to provide in order to get a quote?

As much as possible! A good starting point is to email the following details, (as applicable):

  • A brief overview of the subject matter
  • Why you need a video
  • The target audience/s
  • Intended broadcast platform/s (website, social, conference, shareholder meeting etc)
  • Ideal running time (plus alternate versions if required)
  • Proposed filming location/s
  • Proposed exposition method (interviews, voice over, titles, scripted drama, or a combination of these)
  • Important content that absolutely must be featured in the video
  • Deadline for delivery
  • Links to any existing videos you like, and why.

If you don’t know the answers to all of these points, that’s totally OK! Once I fine out more about your project, I can suggest the best way forward. Ideally, I’ll meet with you to brainstorm ideas prior to quoting, but if you’re in a hurry I can email a quote within 24 hours.

How can I be confident you’ll portray my business accurately on screen?

Every production starts with a relaxed meeting or phone conversation, to find out exactly where your company has come from, who your people are and what makes your point-of-difference super-duper special. This informs every aspect of the eventual video; script, camera angles, music, colour grading… the list goes on, but the final video will just “get” you. Of course, every video incorporates your logo and styleguide to fit seamlessly with existing branded material.

Do you outsource production to other people?

No. At Mintox Media, you always deal with the bloke in charge… Russell Brown. I attend the preliminary meetings, write the script, operate the camera and edit the footage. This ensures your message stays creatively pure from inception to delivery. Larger projects may involve actors, sound recordists, makeup artists, drone operators, voice over talent, animators etc, but I’ll always be in charge.

Do you offer fast turnaround times?

I love a tight deadline and I’ve never, ever missed one. If you need your video soon, let me know upfront and I’ll set time aside for filming, editing and review. Same-day turnaround is possible in certain special situations. If I can’t meet your deadline I won’t take on the job, simple.

How long should my video run for?

Mintox Media videos are generally 1-5 minutes in duration, but every clip is exactly as long (or short) as it needs to be. Sometimes alternate versions are edited for different platforms. Successful videos avoid information overload by focusing on a handful of key points. Whether you require a 30-second clip for your website homepage, 5-minute showreel to attract investors or a 10-hour training series, Mintox Media has you covered.

Do you use real people or actors?

Following a preliminary meeting, I’ll suggest the best way to get your point across; whether you use a voice-over, presenter, interviews, fly-on-the-wall documentary footage, dramatic re-enactments, even comedy. I’ll explain the pros and cons of each method within the context of your particular video. It really depends on your goals, your audience, your schedule, and your budget.

What if I’ve never made a video before?

That’s totally fine… I’ll explain the production process and clarify my creative and technical decisions. Whether you arrive with just a handful of dot points or a fully-approved storyboard, I’ll always produce a video you’re completely proud of.

Why have a corporate video?

With the influence of film and television on our culture over the past hundred years, people today are increasingly visually-oriented. An engaging corporate video can quickly convey abstract concepts such as “company vision”, “best practice” and “brand position” in minutes. Bespoke moving images make your goals and accomplishments tangible to customers and staff – many people will only truly grasp what you’re all about once they see your story on screen!

What does “mintox” mean?

For those who didn’t live in WA in the 80s, “mintox” is a beloved throwback to a simpler time. While the term “mint” was used globally as a synonym for “excellent,” us Western Australians took it up a notch, adding the suffix “-ox” to denote when something was… well, beyond excellent. I first heard the word “mintox” when I was five years old, and I’m keeping it alive.
