It is easy to make a video. Pick up a camera and start shooting; or just turn on the live-feature on your favourite social-media. It is so easy that every one is doing it: your friends, student-interns, and even your neighbour’s kid (yes, the one who is in grade 2!).
Then why would you need us- a video production company led by an award-winning filmmaker with more than a decade’s experience in video- storytelling?
Because we make videos that reflect the professional standards of our clients. That is, videos that are outstanding, high-concept and of superior production-quality. The kind you will be proud to put your logo on.
We design videos to do what you need them to do, whether it is to raise funds, inspire social change, attract more clients, train users or increase the visibility of your brand. So when it comes to engaging & driving your prospective clients, donors or sponsors, who are already overwhelmed with large volume of amateur content, our videos work.
In other words, OUR VIDEOS ARE EFFICIENT. JUST LIKE YOU.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out these testimonials by our clients and watch the videos we have made.
And then contact us to find out how we can work in your budget.
Now that is even easier.
Eileen MacKenzie- Executive Director
Shazia Javed created a video for the Community Foundation of Mississauga in 2015 to help our charitable public foundation promote our Smart and Caring fund opportunity. Shazia was a pleasure to work with, completed the project on time and listened closely to the needs of our organization. We appreciated Shazia's patience and understanding of the constraints of the charitable sector.
Sahar Zaidi- Program Manager
( Canadian Council of Muslim Women )
Shazia was selected by the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) to create a public service announcement for one of our projects titled "Engaging Men and Boys to End Violence in the Family". Not only did her proposal and budget meet our requirements, we were also impressed by her screening of Namrata at our fundraiser. Shazia did a lot of background research to provide CCMW a script by attending one of our focus groups and by meeting with the board to learn about our vision for the PSA. She stuck to our schedule, budget limitations and assisted with the recruitment of actors. The board at CCMW were pleased and impressed by her work and the PSA was well received at its screening two months ago.
Shazia is a pleasure to work with especially in times of stress and unexpected situations! I hope to be able to work with her on another project or in another capacity.
Farheen Khan- Director, Fund Development and External Affairs
International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF)
We had the opportunity to work with Shazia and Lifesketchmedia Inc. to produce two video trailers that contributed to the promotion of our annual fundraising campaign. Shazia was committed to producing films that were high in quality while still maintaining a modest budget. She worked diligently with our team to capture our key messages and to tell our story in a way that would captivate our audience. I highly recommend her work and look forward to the opportunity to work with her again in the near future.
Annis Karpenko- Executive Director( Visual Arts Mississauga )
It was a real pleasure working with Shazia and her team. She created three wonderful videos for our organization. It made all the difference working with a producer who could analyse the USP of our organisation and then develop video concepts that we could choose from. She was creative, professional and took extra care working with the interviewees. Thanks Shazia and LifeSketch Media.
