What We Do
about

ANDREW JONES PRODUCTIONS

We are a Tokyo based video production company. Our specialities are defined by what our clients typically ask of us. This encompasses news stories and documentaries mainly for the consumption of non-Japanese audiences and infommercials for corporate clients. Music videos also feature in our repertoire. We favour the cinematic but contemporary look for our work as this is often what the audience wants too. At the same time, we are fully aware that each project is different and we select the most appropriate look and workflow that ensures that we meet the needs of our clients or situation.

We can offer you productions in Cinema 4K, UHD 4K, 2K, HD and even DVD quality. We have broadcast quality cameras and place equal importance on audio quality as we do on the images.

The type of production output you ultimately choose will affect the budget necessary and we will advise you what’s best for which circumstances should you feel you need help in that area. In order to keep production costs down, we advise that the client if an organization other than a broadcaster, sit down and formulate in as much details as possible what exactly their message is and their idea of a concept. Pre-production meetings are costs we charge for and the less time spent here, means the more budget you will have to add options in post-production (editing stage) to help give your video that extra little bit of polish. Good pre-production planning also means that the production process itself (the shooting of the necessary footage) will go much smoother – thus saving even more time and money.

Putting the Client’s Needs First!

We understand the need to future-proof work for corporate clients and the need to make a quick turnaround in the world of news. We therefore use the latest technology and employ the best techniques to make the end-product appeal to as many of your intended audience as possible. Where a quick turnaround is both critical and important, we focus on being efficient and choose the most appropriate tools for the job. Technology and techniques are only part of the equation and Andrew Jones draws on his 24+ years experience of working and living in Japan to accurately ascertain a news event / business and then deliver it in either English, Japanese or Welsh.

THREE STEP PROCESS

If you are using a production company that charges you by the length of the video they produce, you are dancing with fire. Video production involves many stages and many days and hours to produce what may end up being a 30 second commercial! A proper professional business approach assures that your time and investment will see fruition as everyone is clear about what is necessary and how much it will cost. The three basic stages with the examples of what are typically included in those stages are shown below.

STEP 1 - PRE-PRODUCTION

Planning & Storyboarding 

STEP 2 - PRODUCTION

Filming & Recording Footage, Voiceovers & Other Material

STEP 3 - POST-PRODUCTION

 Ingesting Media, Tagging, Editing, Colour Correction & Grading, Graphics, Subtitles etc.
