The Kahani Approach

We believe that the success of a video marketing strategy is measured by how well it’s able to connect with people. That’s why we take the time to build meaningful relationships with our clients so that we can make a strategic approach to effective storytelling. The platforms are just the dressing, the real core ingredients are the stories and how they connect to each other in multi-faceted ways.

Our content strategy work involves a complete appraisal of your organization's position and codifies a comprehensive assortment of digital content that can be sustainably repurposed in the face of whatever platform and algorithmic changes that come now and into the future.

What we're asked

How much do your videos cost?

Our films are custom made from the ground up. No formulas. No templates. That means each project needs to be properly speculated and will have a unique price.

How long does it take to make a video?

Production schedules can vary depending on the scope of the project and availability of everyone involved. However we typically require a three week minimum for post production (editing) in order to deliver the highest quality videos.

Can you turn something around quickly?

Yes we can. We have a highly skilled team that’s capable of making things happen as quickly as you need, however we will apply a rush premium of 20% of the total budget if the delivery must be made in under three weeks.

I have a subject in mind but no idea how this process works, where do we start?

Our friendly producers are happy to lead you through a number of creative processes in order to format your story into a powerful script. We are keen writers and love a good creativity challenge.

Can you provide examples of how a video can objectively impact a business?

Yes, please visit our Case Studies page to see how our documentary films have influenced real change. If you’re a business looking for an ROI with video, we can show you examples of the kinds of videos that drive sales and the kinds of videos that create life long fans for brands.

How do you make a viral video?

Cast a dog, a cat, or a baby.

"Very professional, artistic in his own vision and executed our project seamlessly"

Inder was a pleasure to work with and more importantly he understood the vision and importance of our film. He is very professional, artistic in his own vision and executed our project seamlessly in a timely manner, meeting all deadlines while staying within the budget. I recommend him highly for any kind of filming whether it be a practical how to film or a story to be told.

- Julie Woodyer, Zoocheck

"Completely blown away."

We wanted to capture a poetry reading at our office featuring Shane Koyczan. Inder filmed it like we asked, and then went above and beyond by adding visuals and music that we would never have thought of doing. He went way above-spec and delivered an incredibly powerful video. It gained over 100,000 views in the first week!

- Mark Busse, Creative Mornings Vancouver

" I would unreservedly recommend Inder for any video project."

Inder's videos are unparalleled for their high-quality footage, beautiful cinematography, and ability to capture the values of a brand accurately. Inder is a consummate professional. He is easy to work with, understands the video's intended concept quickly, and produces an excellent product. I would unreservedly recommend Inder for any video project.

- Jen Paulson, Founder, Siggie Lodoen

"A sure-fire way for businesses to stand out."

I’ve worked with Inder on several client projects and each time has been a great experience. One client did not expect to have such an emotional reaction to a video about their products. People were literally crying when the video was shown at the company retreat. This storytelling approach to corporate videos is a sure-fire way for businesses to stand out.

A note from the founder

I’ve spent over a decade as a video marketing expert in Vancouver for big brands and have come to realize something very important.

In this day of marketing automation and trend chasing, real artful storytelling is the most effective way to reach hearts and minds.

We are helping companies connect to their audience in a unique way – through impactful videos.

If you’re someone that appreciates the value in beautiful films, then we should collaborate.
