A creative initiative by Keida Mascaro and Nicholas Flandro.
Arguably our favorite offering is our ability to come aboard with the creative development of your project. At our core, we are storytellers. We enjoy thinking from problem solving and value adding perspectives, and can lead in the management of ideation sessions, deck building, conceptualization and pitching. We can create ideas from scratch as well as assist in polishing a solid project. We build decks, create character bibles, design storyboards and shoot sizzle reels, bringing on carefully selected collaborators to create content that makes an impact.
We produce film, video, photographic and animated content for our clients. Each production is crafted out of the specific needs of the creative, and we thoughtfully curate the right team to move the project to its intended goal. We are detail junkies and consider every aspect of the production from cameras to foley, casting to locations. Everything is important; we adhere to the classic French code, “Mise en place, mise en scene.”
Publishing is possibly the most mysterious aspect of our industry, and we are excited to assist with your deliverables and publishing strategy. Maybe your project needs to be formatted for a television media buy? Perhaps your content needs to be managed on your social media platforms? A publicity campaign might be needed? There are a lot of options in this digital age, and we customize a publishing strategy that incorporates sourcing and on-boarding the right partners to help you maximize impact of the content we create together.
We are Mascaro Flandro.
