DEG Productions has been producing branding, training, marketing and other types of corporate video content for over 20 years. We’ve worked with most of the Fortune 500 companies.
WHO WE ARE
We are a full-service media production company based in Westchester County, New York.
DEG’s predecessor, Deerfield Productions started over 35 years ago producing for many of the nation’s leading advertising agencies and publishing companies. We established DEG, Inc and its divisions; DEG Direct Response, Deerfield Education Group, and DEG Productions in 2005 serving the Direct Response, Brand and Retail Advertising, Educational publishing, Corporate & Social Video and other markets.
At our core, we are creative producers and bring this expertise to bear on both our internal and external projects, as proven by the countless industry and consumer awards we have won.
Today DEG is one of the most active production companies in the nation. DEG’s comprehensive team includes experts in all phases of production, from creative concepting, script writing, content development, and project coordination, full-service productions of all sizes, and a robust digital media and post-production team. Many of our clients work with us over many years of close collaboration.
Our creative team has been together for many years, creating content that produces results in a wide variety of categories. Our team is what gives us the ability to consistently produce programs that exceed our client’s creative and technical expectations.
Production is a lot like milking a cow –
you need every single drop.
If it doesn’t sell, it isn’t creative.
Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.
If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed.
Human history in essence
is the history of ideas.
I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
Sweat equity is the most valuable equity there is. Know your business and industry better than anyone else in the world. Love what you do or don’t do it.
If your mother cooks Italian food,
why should you go to a restaurant?
The best things in life are free – and $19.95.
I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact.
OK, I’m happy. I’m happy. All right? I’m happy.
Cinema is a matter of what’s in
the frame and what’s out.
An investment in knowledge
pays the best interest.
Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.
William Butler Yeats
Look at the walls of Pompeii.
That’s what got the internet started.
Our first step is to find out more about you, your company, service or product. After the discovery process, we work with your team to determine the style and type of production that best suits your needs and will deliver the desired results.
SCRIPT & CREATIVE
This step is one of the most important in the entire production process. This is where we shape the content, tone and scope of the production. The goal is to create a compelling story that drives home your message.
This step is where the planning for the project begins. Once we have agreed on a visual style, we generally move onto storyboards. The next crucial step in pre-production is casting. We have enormous casting resources based on our many years of working with some of the top talent agencies in New York. Location Scouting is a real strength as well, with incredible studio and location resources throughout our area.
The actual production process involves many facets such as production scheduling, crewing, lighting, rigging, & camera selection and filming logistics all of which we are expert at.
Our post-production resources are second to none. Working with our team of talented editors, your production will be managed from visual concept through completion. We combine live action, animation and motion graphics to create compelling stories and messaging. We create striking visuals that bring your project to life.
Our team have been around the block. We’ve handled an incredible variety of projects and we like it that way. The work never gets boring because we may be asked to produce an educational video series one month, a series of national spots the next, and a Direct Response Infomercial after that. This variety keeps us fresh and makes us uniquely able to shift gears and provide a fresh creative approach time and time again.
