Hospital’s Small Budget Video Produced Big Results

Small but Mighty

Blueforest Studios, video production company based in Raleigh NC, partnered with WakeMed to deliver a unique and engaging video for  Halloween. WakeMed was looking for a low-cost quick turnaround video for social media that highlighted the activities in the NICU during Halloween. The Blueforest Studios team was up for the challenge and this is what happened:



Video Made in a JIF-fy

This project was unlike previous video projects. The video was filmed and delivered within 48 hours. The price of the video was lower because there were only one videographer and one day of editing. The turnaround time was extremely fast for this particular project. Another reason this video was low cost was the scripting. WakeMed was in charge of the script for the Halloween video.
