ABOUT

Founded and run by Stephen de Villiers, an award winning filmmaker with a passion for service and forging life-long client relationships, Beyond Content is an end-to-end video production agency. Working with some of Adelaide’s top creatives, we produce corporate, commercial and animated video.

From a brand’s perspective, video can be a tricky beast. Audience demand for video is self-evident, but a few questions remain. What kind of video should we make? How much should we spend? What should we say? Where are we our customers? How do we measure our return?

Corporate Video

Your brand will love you

There’s corporate video and there’s corporate video. No matter the brief, we always inject a serious dose of beauty and love into whatever we do. We also believe that the fundamental rule applies – unless you’re utilising the power of narrative (storytelling), the game’s over. Pretty pictures alone don’t cut it. But a branded film, carefully crafted to work at a deep narrative level, produced with some of Adelaide’s best, award-winning crew just might.

World Class Post-Production

We specialise in post-production, through offline and online editing, motion graphics and our high-end colour grading specialisation. Whether you’re finishing a short film or music video, or need a suite of commercials cut, graded and prepped for broadcast, or you want to work with us to assemble and offline your feature film or TV Series, we’ve done it all and have the software, hardware, skills and expertise. Our in-house editor and colourist Sam has been specialising in this kinda stuff for almost a decade now and has the story instincts, technical wizardry and patience needed to see any project come to life in the edit.

Content Strategy

Get the most out of video

These days shooting a video at random, haphazard occasions doesn’t always produce the best long term result or ROI. More and more we’re working with brands to develop a content strategy outlining where and when to best invest in production and how to measure results and pivot according to market response. It can help to think about touchpoints, platforms, user generated content, repurposing existing content, etc. We can help navigate some of the jargon.

 

Animation Production

Explanimate Yourself

Animation can be an awesome way to concisely and elegantly convey an idea or message. Whether you’re interested in a stand-alone animation or to enhance a live action video with animated elements, we’ve got the tools, time, skills and eagle-eye to bring it to life.

Social Media Video

Short is Sweet

Snappy 30 and 15 second videos designed for the phone and for the short attention span. You know you want one. It’s where your audience lives. Don’t worry, we’ve made more than a few. We’ve got you covered.

TV Commercials

Be seen on TV

Even though the trend is definitely moving toward online video, and has been for some time now, we do love shooting a good commercial. Generally there’s more scope for a considered narrative approach, which, if we’re honest, is where our strength lies. Come on your own, or bring your agency. Let’s make something beautiful!

How we work

Every job requires a unique production methodology, whether it’s a one-man crew, or a full-scale production complete with grips, gaffers and all the other wonderful people that make up a film crew. As creative lead, Stephen generally services the work as producer and director. Depending on the needs of the job, he regularly utilises the talents and resources of many of Adelaide’s key creative personnel, in the form of cinematographers, editors, sound editors and recordists, animators, composers, designers, and so on. Rest assured your budget will buy you the best resources money can buy.

Pricing Guide

Budgeting a video is (or at least was) a bit like asking ‘how long is a piece of string’? And while it’s true that there are a range of variables that can influence how much a video costs to produce, we feel that the world has moved on and customers expect and deserve a degree of upfront transparency. So while this is only a guide the prices and examples below should serve to give a sense of what can be achieved on what kind of budget.
