Top Video Production Company in New England
Skillman Video Group has been actively creating and marketing video content for large, small, national and international businesses since 2005.

We’ve grown considerably since those days, and now operate out of our offices in Boston. Our success as a Boston Production Company is indebted to a variety of factors.

Video Production Services

When clients or consumers engage with your business they are not only requesting a service, but more importantly they look to the culture, stories, and people that comprise your organization. Your product could be amazing, but consumers will be unable to form a meaningful connection with it without a well-told story to support it.
And yes, every person, business, and organization has a meaningful story and vision. From direct, internal corporate videos to start-up videos designed to showcase the faces and people of a business, the purpose of a web video is to tell a story. The trick to effectively telling your story is a creative approach to an intriguing concept, and Skillman Video Group specializes in moving from concept to content.
We have produced a wide range of videos for Boston business including live events and commercials, testimonials, brand, training, animation, and educational videos. We don’t just create a video for clients, we develop a long lasting relationship and lines of communication that makes the process easy and less stressful for both parties.
Communication is always an important part to our video production process, without it the concept would be lost and the client is disappointed. We want all of our customers, whether a small business or large, to feel comfortable discussing their ideas and changes they would like made. Communication contributes directly to a well-developed video.
Yes, SVG’s goal is to deliver a unique video with the client’s message, but we also look to do so in a timely manner that does not waste anyone’s time. Our thorough planning allows us to be prepared for any scenario and get the job done without the client having to break the bank.
We are there every step of the way for the client that way there isn’t any surprises come filming. We want our customers to know exactly what is going on and not feel discombobulated or unorganized during a video production shoot. In other words we don’t want the client to stress for that is our job, but our step-by-step approach makes it so there is no need to stress.
- Discovery phase: SVG likes to conduct a ‘meet and greet’ to gather pertinent information about our clients, and learn their corporate language, business culture and even obtain knowledge regarding preferred aesthetics and design.
- Design phase: SVG launches into a conceptual design phase, based on the knowledge acquired at the ‘meet and greet’ and other methods of research conducted. During this phase we focus on the best way to tell our client’s story – be it animation, a series of testimonials, or a more complex algorithm of videos.
- Development phase: Script drafts are created, storyboards are drafted, and casting decisions are made during our development process.
- Production phase: Upon completion of pre-production and client approval, the product is completed and sent for final approval.
- Post-production phase: A complete and perfected marketing product is offered to our clients consisting of a high quality, well-written, beautifully designed video, web site, email or social media campaign. Enjoy!
Video Production Clients
We serve a wide variety of clients that require professional video production services in the Greater Boston Metro Area as well as to national and international companies. Our clients have been professionals from the fields of hospitality, education, law, health care and technology.
Skillman Video Group has worked with well-known clients like Legal Seafoods, Gillette and Yamaha. Whether your organization is a large, well-established organization, or a burgeoning startup that is looking to make an impact, Skillman Video Group can produce the most effective content for your web marketing needs.
With media constantly evolving, your business can count on SVG to always deliver a high quality video with creative content that will stand out from your competitors. With over 10 years of video production and video marketing experience, we work directly with the clients to determine the best video concept fit for their goal. SVG knows exactly the setting, content, lighting, and video style needed for a high quality video that will grab a specific audiences attention or reach those outside of the targeted audience.
The videos we create for clients aren’t just average and built around a budget. We take pride in every video we make, and no matter what the budget is, our goal is to always create a unique video that displays the client’s story or message.
We understand that the video isn’t just for internal purposes, but it’s for a targeted audience, and as we stated before our approach revolves around the business’s audience.
At SVG we work with our clients to develop a video that fits their mission and business.
If a family-owned business wants to show off their commitment to their customers and work ethic, we then come up with a video that will show that concept off. For instance, in this case a testimonial video would be key. The goal is to show the businesses commitment, and interviewing the staff and customers proves that. Using real customers and staff connects directly to the specific audience.
However, in the case of a corporate business that is looking to show off a new prototype or product, a brand video would be best fit. It allows the business to present the product, and also show how it will positively impact the customers.
