What's the production process?

1. First things first. Together, we'll describe who you want to reach & develop strategies especially for your target audience or learner.

2. Which medium fits your message? What's the best way to get your messages across to your audiences or learners? What media combination will give you the biggest impact for your budget?

3. Next, "pre-production." Once we understand your objectives, audiences, media combination & budget, Backporch Media Production will write text and scripts, design graphics samples and storyboards, and prepare user interface samples for your approval.

Instructional design sampleDepending on your needs, Backporch Media Production works with illustrators, 3D artists, translators, multi-lingual voice talent, and other specialists.

Once you like what you see...

4. Production begins. We work with you closely throughout the process and regularly provide materials for your approval. For complex instructional design projects, we provide thorough testing to ensure that the materials will meet your needs.
