Often paired with a product or message, Corporate Videos are one of the most efficient and direct ways of addressing your specific target market with a direct call to action. Corporate videos include (but are not limited to) “talking-head” interviews, green screen, motion graphics, b-roll, music and voice overs.

<b>Animation</b>

A world of make-believe at its finest. Animation will immerse your creative concept or script into either 2D or 3D animation with custom character design, storyboards, music and voice overs.

<b>Featurette</b>

Capture and showcase what you have to offer in a micro-documentary styled video. As one of the more budget-friendly packages, Featurettes can draw immediate interest and are naturally inclusive of a shorter turnaround.

<b>Live-Event Videography</b>

From conferences to seminars, to corporate events and fundraisers to brand activations, 81 Entertainment has your live-event covered from beginning to end and can readily transform it into a cinematic reality. Popular video choices include highlight reels and trailers.

<b>Aerial</b>

Give your audience a unique perspective by flying them to new heights. Whether it’s video, photo or a combination of both, incorporating aerial into your digital assets are a rising trend. All of 81 Entertainment's flights are permitted through Transport Canada via obtainment of an SFOC (Special Flight Operations Certificate).

<b>Music Video</b>

When it came time to produce a challenging network special, it was 81 Entertainment that provided invaluable production guidance throughout the entire project. There wasn’t a problem that couldn’t be solved. 81 Entertainment’s calm, professional manner provided the Executive Producers with the confidence that anything was possible. I look forward to the next time that we can work together!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with 81 Entertainment on several occasions over the past two years. We were immediately drawn to 81’s professionalism, artistic talent, creative vision and overall, easy-going manner. After running an around-the-clock 48-hr event, having a dependable production team such as 81 Entertainment to execute our vision has been key to our success. Our global team always looks forward to working with 81 Entertainment, and we know that when we have them on-board, our video is in great hands. I look forward to continue working with Mitch and his team.
