We’ve been crafting custom production solutions since 1984.
We can handle any production from a simple single shoot day with an ENG style camera crew to a complex production involving a crew of 25 or more with the production equipment to match. DEG gets your production done efficiently and on budget, without drama or stress. We do all the “heavy lifting” so you, the client, can relax!
One of DEG’s strengths is in the area of pre-production. In our experience, pre-pro is a critical element in the production process, providing unique solutions to each project’s individual needs. From the start of a project, DEG works closely with our clients to determine key creative visual and messaging goals for the project. Working from the information provided from location scouting, script breakdowns and talent casting we will determine the most expedient way to produce the project with the goal of maintaining high production standards while keeping costs contained.
Our production department is accustomed to large projects with tight deadlines. We have a “deep bench” when it comes to staffing, with highly qualified production professionals. We have the “bandwidth” to take on large projects and stay on-schedule, while still providing superior work that will surpass expectations.
Our production team has worked on literally hundreds of educational programs, national spots, corporate videos and broadcast programs.
Our equipment resources in terms camera, audio, grip and lighting packages are unmatched in our region. The “look” of our productions is unique because we utilize extremely high-end production techniques in productions with sometimes challenging budgets. We try to integrate striking visuals into scenes whenever possible, often through the use of camera movement and bold, cinematic lighting. This approach gives our projects higher production values more akin to films.
DEG is one of the nation’s leading producers of dramatic scenario and classroom-based educational programs. We are also a market leader in the production of national broadcast commercials in the Direct Response and Health and Beauty categories. This experience has helped make DEG a highly efficient production organization, capable of simultaneously handling multiple productions with large casts and crew.

Our first step is to find out more about you, your company, service or product. Then with that knowledge, we work with you to determine what type of production will be the strongest for your message. We want to ensure that our goals and vision align with yours.
Script & Creative
This step is one of the most important in the entire process. This is where we shape the content, tone, and length of the video. The goal is to draw in viewers with a video that’s tailored to their wants, needs and preferences. We want to deliver the maximum “bang” in the shortest amount of time, as attention spans are short. We can create the script, work with you in its creation, or work from your provided script.
Frames and Storyboarding
Key frames are still images showing what a specific portion of your commercial or video will look like. This gets our vision out of our heads and into a tangible form for your feedback. Once we have agreed on a visual style, we move onto storyboards. A storyboard is a visual representation of your video, told through a series of still frames that showcase major moments in the video. These steps lay out the look/feel and overall flow of your video.
Professional voiceover talent is key. We have a large pool of voice talent to choose from – male, female, corporate, casual – we can work with you to determine the best fit for your video.
Once the voiceover and storyboard are complete and approved, we get started on producing your commercial or video. When it’s ready, we’ll upload it and ask for your comments and feedback.
Once our animators and editors have completed the visual components, our professional sound designer adds sound effects and music to bring the video to life. This final level of polish helps to elevate your video above all the other videos out there.
Upon final approval, we’ll provide the completed master in the file type of your choice. All of the project files are kept on hand on our servers in case revisions or updates are needed in the future.
