Your story is unique, powerful, even extraordinary. It deserves to be told right. At Spark & Foster Films, we believe in the power of a good story well told. We produce tailor-made film and video content that communicates your story with impact, creativity, and heart. Whether narrative films, documentaries, or commercials, we adapt to your needs. From film sets to live events, we bring you the creative vision, the right talent, and the tools to get the job done.
We work to understand your story and define the scope and budget of your project. We take time to listen to your ideas and bring our own creative input to the table. We explore and evaluate all possible options to help you choose the right direction.
We assemble the right talent and tools for the job. Working from the concept created in phase 1, we develop storyboards or shot lists, schedule shoot dates and times, design sets and secure locations, and assemble the perfect cast and crew.
This is the magical phase where your dream starts becoming real. Working from the schedule, crew roster, and shot lists developed in phase 2, we shoot original content with creativity and artistry. We provide broadcast quality 4K cinematic production with pro lighting and sound.
We take content from phase 3 and edit, color grade, and sound mix to produce the finished product. Working from the strategy created in phases 1-2, we design graphics, titles, and animations as needed. We let you review a rough cut and we listen carefully to your feedback before delivering the finished product.
In the past 12 years, Spark & Foster Films has produced content for over 220 clients in 12 states. We are New York based, but our reach expands across the Northeast and beyond.
