We Make Our Customers Happy
It all starts with our clients vision, then we shape the vision based on the time and budget for the project.
Your vision is the foundation for the project.
We layout the concept for the project based on your vision that is sculpted by our insights and the time and budget for the project.
From this we develop a script and storyboard to realize the scope of the project.
With the project outlined we shoot, edit, animate, develop graphics, and code based on all the elements of the project. And yes, we do everything in house.
With the final production elements in place we deliver your finished project.
Our Main Skills
We are expert animators using Lightwave, After Effects and Adobe Character Animator software. Lightwave was one of the first applications to focus exclusively on lighting a scene. Lightwave was almost used exclusively to create the 1st Star Wars movie due to its superior outerspace rendering ability.
We create full 3D environments and character development and rigging. For 2D animations we author in After Effects and Adobe Character Animator.
A background in radio and television broadcasting gives Anstar Productions Group an extended advantage when it comes to audio recording, effects and editing.
Bill's 1st job was in radio and then a television announcer for PBS where he narrated, recorded and edited the schedule line-up for the Tucson station.
Audio encompasses 50% of a video production presentation and a strength at Anstar Productions Group.
Some people forget that the World Wide Web has only been around since 1991 and Anstar Productions Group created its first website in 1995. Engineers and early developers had little to no design expertise and only focused on content and data. Anstar Productions Group immediately noticed the need for design first based websites as we realized the marketablility of a site.
Graphic design is another major component in video production and web design. Our background in Adobe's Master Suite software applications keeps us out in front when it comes to branding and creating a visual impact.
We offer a cross platform branding experience ready for print, web and video.
30 Years of editing experience on every software platform has led to our choice to date- Adobe's Master Suite. When Anstar Productions opened its doors in 1989 there were only 6 production companies listed in the phone book and we did independent contract videography / editing work for 4 of the other ones listed. The quality of our work has kept us in high demand and still in business today. We remain at the forefront of technology with a skillset ready to take on even the most challenging requests.
We made our first video promo 30 years ago and our first "film" 20 years ago. Today most companies that shoot film are actually shooting digital video in a film frame rate. We offer both film and video formats in High Definition, 4K and 8k resolutions. 8k is the digital equivalent to an IMAX film format.
We offer multiple camera shoots in just about every format available, just contact us to schedule a production meeting.
