Here’s a little bit of information about Digital Fate Creative’s professional services:
We can, and do create or capture almost anything imaginable within the digital realm. Our specialties include:
- Digital Aerial Photography and Video — NoCo Aerial Imaging
- Digital Image Manipulation and Editing
- Creative Development for Digital and Print Media
- Corporate ID Solutions
- 2D and 3D Digital Animation and Video/Sound Editing
- Content Development
- System Support and Training
- Project Management
Our number one goal is to create a solution that exceeds your expectations. Our specialty lies in thinking beyond the edges of the box by first defining them, the goal and the target market, and then we remold the paradigm. Digital Fate Creative will develop solutions based on your digital media needs. Though we rarely have to look beyond our own in-house talent, we will consult or contract with one of our peers or another vendor if there are elements of the project that are beyond our scope. While this does not happen very often, we will do what is necessary to exceed your expectations.
Digital Fate Creative creates programs and products that we sell commercially via our development branch, Digital Fate Labs; however, this does not have a negative impact on our client’s projects. Actually, to the contrary; because we create systems, products and programs for commercial sale, we are constantly learning new methods and techniques and we’re staying in-tune with the digital media industry. In turn, we apply this experience to create the very best for our clients. All of our projects; in-house and client, are managed by seasoned project managers, and ultimately, our clients always come first.
Our fees are generally project based. We complete a full assessment of your needs via customized questionnaires that you fill out to give us the information we need to provide a quote to you. There is no charge for this, as we can’t tell you what it will take until we know what you want. After acceptance of the quote, there is a one-third project start fee. The remainder is not due until you are satisfied and we’ve delivered the product to you.
Of course, quotes are just that. They are estimations of the work required based on the development treatment. If the treatment changes, or additional work is required based on the client’s request, there will be additional fees. Once a project has begun, we take every opportunity to keep the client informed and involved along the way. Clients must approve every change and there is never a unknown fee tacked on at the end. If you would like to start the process online, please register for an account. After approval, you will be able to login and complete a project assessment.
Projects come in all shapes and sizes. No project is the same as another, so we will create a timeline based on our experience and in conjunction with your project treatment. This will include all applicable milestones and expected delivery date. Like fees, timelines are subject to be updated based on treatment changes.
We provide limited digital imagery and video for specialized circumstances, for example, aerial/drone, underwater, and or extreme locations. Our aerial/drone division NoCo Aerial Imaging was begun to meet the demand for these situations and is thriving as a result. However, Digital Fate Creative is not a general ground-based Photography/Videography Studio, nor are we general ground-based photography/videography professionals. Therefore, when a project has a required general ground-based photo and/or live action video element, we contract with trusted partners that are professionals in their respective field to capture and provide the raw media for Digital Fate to complete post-production services. We also have many colleagues that we can refer you to that provide these services if we are unable to meet the high-standards we insist on for every project.
We are not an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Web Hosting Solution. We design, develop and deploy the websites and supporting elements that are housed with your ISP. Again, we have trusted sources that we work with for these services and, if necessary, we will help you find a provider that meets your needs.
Certain projects require that we convert videotape and or slides or film to digital for inclusion in the finished project. While this is not the focus of our business, we are required to perform such transfers for example, when developing a web video archive or timeline. While we have the tools and talent to transfer many types of tape media to a digital format, we do not provide this service as a standalone project. Tape and film media can be very fragile depending on it’s condition and age, and we do not want to do any further damage to your media by putting them through standard transfer procedures. While it doesn’t typically happen, aged film media can easily be damaged or destroyed even when being carefully handled. For this reason, when a project requires conversion, we require that the client signs a release of liability and consent to digitize form for these services. Depending on the age and condition of the media, we may refer clients to studios that specialize in handling delicate media for digitizing.
