Our Approach

Production has changed for a lot of people. For us, not so much. We're Experts in Remote Production with hard-earned global experience since 2010. Now our two production companies - Co.MISSION & Magic Seed - have united to move production forward in a new age of creative possibility.

Hometeam_Global-1

A Curated Global Network

We have curated highly-capable teams in major cities from coast-to-coast and around the globe. We can remote stream a Director to guide a local crew, or conduct autonomous shoots remotely with livestream monitoring.

Hometeam_Innovativev

Years of Experience

While Covid is getting everyone to think differently, we’ve been taking a distributed approach to production for the past 10 years. From pre-production thru post, we tap cloud-based tools, next-gen talent, and our hard-earned experience to remotely create content.

Hometeam_Successful

Successful Campaigns

We're not newbies to remote production. With our distributed approach to production, we have successfully created original content for well-known channels (NBC, HBO) major global brands (Google, Starbucks, LG) and agencies (Ogilvy, McCann, 72andSunny) and shown them what's possible.

Hometeam_Experience

Innovative Approach

We are a team of creative problem solvers. Working with our clients, we design a production approach to fit a project’s brief, budget, and constraints. We employ new tools. New processes. New Talent. We get most excited when we’re doing what’s never been done before.

A Better Production Model

The Old Way

Artboard-61

The Hometeam Way

Artboard-61-copy
Icon-Clock-1

Save Time. Why shoot back-to-back when you can shoot in multiple locations on the same day?

Icon-Money

Save Travel Costs. Airfare, Baggage fees, hotels, car rentals, per diem - all things of the past. Put those savings right into higher production value.

Icon-Plane

Eliminate Travel Days. No more down days getting from A to B. No more travel fatigue. Conduct shoots remotely across the globe without ever stepping onto an airplance.

Icon-Heart

Lower Risk. Without travel, there are fewer risks and fewer opportunities for exposure.

Artboard-23-copy-2

Tap Into Local Expertise. By working with local crews, you leverage local know-how to find the best support teams, the best locations, the best stories.

An Adaptive Approach

Day-to-Day, Week-to-Week, the ability to safely shoot across the U.S. is shifting. Clients are understandably hesitant to start production under such uncertainty.

With Hometeam, your production can move forward with confidence. Our distributed model means production can be flexible to scale up or down and shift location depending on forces outside your control. You can feel secure knowing that you can lock in your shoots and they’ll move ahead even if the rest of the world is at a standstill.

at-home

During Pandemic Lockdown

Our filmmakers have access to their own pro gear and have also provided info on their household co-habitants who can appear as on-camera talent. We have info on their talents and available locations too. Many of our filmmakers even have home studios.

Shifting Local Restrictions

Take your location wherever the risk is lowest. If there’s a Covid flare up in one part of the country, we can crew up somewhere else where production is possible. We can also tap our global network to shoot content abroad when it’s called for.

open-for-business

Open for Business

Covid or not, you may find that remote production simply offers a more streamlined approach to creating content. Hometeam’s global network unlocks creative storytelling on a nationwide and global scale. And without travel costs, budget can be saved or reinvested into production.

Health & Safety

Safety comes first. Creativity a close second.

We consider the health and safety of our crews the priority. In concert with healthcare professionals and film industry guidelines, we've developed an approach that keeps crew and talent safe on set.

Hometeam_Check-1

A Production Approach for Now

The Hometeam approach is built for health & safety: working with smaller crews, minimizing travel, remote monitoring, and abiding by strict health and safety guidelines.

Hometeam_List

On Set Safety Protocols

Our on-set health and safety protocols have been developed in partnership with healthcare professionals. And with dozens of production under our belt since 2020, we've gotten into a new rhythm for Covid-safe production.

Hometeam_SafetyLeads

PPE & Designated Safety Leads

On set, all crew wear PPE and abide by social distancing and hygienic practices. We also assign a designated Safety Lead so that one person is responsible for keeping an eye on health so our crew can focus on creativity.

Hometeam_Covid

Let Us Coordinate Testing

Over dozens of productions, we've developed the best protocol to get crew tested in a timely way. We rely either on local PCR testing clinics or mail-in tests depending on timing and logitical constraints. Rest assured our crew will arrive Covid-safe and ready to shoot.

Create the Shoot Playbook

In pre-production, our Producers will conduct subject pre-interviews and create shooter Playbooks - storyboards, style guides, camera specs and extensive shot lists - which will guide our local Hometeam filmmakers.

Execute Remotely

Without the need to travel, our local Hometeam filmmakers will capture subject stories. Crews will follow our Playbook and key interviews will be conducted in-person or remotely by a director. Whether a client wants to monitor every shot, or just conduct a remote interview, we’ll provide a remote video village to tune in.

Footage Delivery & Post

All crews will work with similar or same cameras and follow exact shooting specs to capture consistent quality of footage. We coordinate with your post team to ensure that files will be meticulously organized and delivered by hard drive in a timely manner.
