Documentary Film Production


In case you haven’t been watching, over 6 billion videos are viewed on YouTube every month. That’s almost an hour for every person on Earth. Videos are a valuable, powerful way to tell your own story, and to showcase different aspects of your life. Not speaking about giving long text
about your life, we’re talking about compelling, interesting, and emotionally engaging storytelling that can makes every aspect of your life interesting to watch.
A documentary done right can make your own story unforgettable. We do video right by understanding your personality, your goals behind the video and your audience. Then we decide the best kind of storytelling that will resonate with that audience. It could be documentary-style, humorous, or emotional. It’s all about finding the right way in so you get the most out of your investment.

Scope of Services

There are a lot of pieces involved in developing a compelling video but at 9Yards Media & Marketing, our extensive experience has taught us how to be a lean, mean, production machine, depending on your budget and expectations.


Laying the right groundwork is essential to developing a great video. Pre-production is where we figure out the best game plan for your personal preference. We decide on the video concept, the look/feel and style, we write the script, cast any actors, decide on location and set design depending on your plan selection, and lock down all the other details involved with how the actual video is going to look, sound, and perform.


We’re rolling! Now that we have the road map developed in the pre-production stage, it’s time to
put it all together in front of the cameras. This is where our professional crew of director of photography, camera operators, sound engineers, and lighting techs do what they do best – film a great video.

Post Production

Our editorial post-production team kicks in to shape your story, handle color-correction, record any voice overs, clean up the audio, add music, create graphics and in general make sure your video looks exactly like we planned in pre-production. It’s at this stage that you’ll see the first cut.

Final Revisions

Once you’ve seen the first cut, you’ll have a chance to share your thoughts with us. There is one round of revisions allowed at this stage, within reasonable expectations and within the scope of the original video concept.


With the final cut complete and your approval signed-off, we create high quality files of your video that can be used for a variety of formats.
