Pre-Production Planning

We will help you develop the conceptual framework of the video and the draw out the most important themes.

  • Who’s stories do you want to tell?
  • What demographics are you trying to reach?
  • Will it help for us to create multiple videos with different target audiences from the same content?



Skilled Crew: Plowshares Media supplies a full crew for every studio and on location shoot, so we not only get the shot, but we know that it always looks great and sounds clear.

  • A Producer
  • Production/Script Coordinator
  • Director of Photography
  • Audio Engineer

Professional Equipment: Lets face it, having the right gear for the job can make all the difference; that’s why we maintain industry leading lighting, audio and video equipment.

We also work with a wide range of Directors of Photography, meaning we always have access to the newest and best cameras, at no additional cost to you!



PSM edits your footage using industry standard Final Cut Pro and Adobe CC suites in addition to other video production specific software and hardware packages.

Having creative control over your video as it develops is important, so we set up a series of specific times when you can

  • review cuts of your video as it develops,
  • talk with us about the overall direction and give feedback

We find that 3 cuts are usually enough; a Rough Cut for major changes, a Fine Cut for smaller changes and color correction, and an Approval Cut for slight or no adjustments and audio mastering.

We can screen with you in person or upload an HD file so you can stream the cut anywhere.

We also have a wonderful partner in Amplify, they help mission-driven organizations achieve their policy and advocacy goals through:

  1. Data-driven digital media content production and strategic communications consulting
  2. Traditional government affairs
  3. Grassroots campaign tactics

We’ve partnered with them on a number of projects, give them a look!

And these are two 30 second PSAs (one, two) with Jason Jones (The Daily Show correspondent) that we made for them.


We deliver all of our DVD masters on 50 year archival stock. We also provide the option to deliver the finished video on High Definition Blu-ray discs.

Internet Ready Deliverables: Easily put your video on you website; we always provide each client with streaming ready file based versions of each video in Flash, H.264, QuickTime or other popular formats.
