The Creative Process.

Developing Your Creative Flair

Helping Ideas Take Flight

Every project starts with an idea, a light-bulb moment. An idea can make or break a project. At Astor we act as a catalyst, creating fresh, exciting and air-tight creative ideas for media projects locally, nationally and globally.

With experience in Commercial, Corporate and Fiction-Film production, we know how to curate a project so that it not only ticks the brief, but does so with flair and unique qualities.

Elements Of The Creative Video Process

The Elements of Creativity

Let’s Get Familiar

A creative idea is nothing if it doesn’t reflect your ideas, values and intentions. Whether you prefer video calls or a natter over a warm beverage (maybe smoke signals and carrier pigeon are more your style?) we’ll understand, analyse and build a database of inspiration and information to influence the creative process, ensuring the outcome not only does the job, but exceeds expectations.


Crack out the drawing board

Making sense of the scribbles on the napkin, we flesh out the narrative, combine the moods into a board and sketch out every element of the big idea, getting it from imagination to paper. No matter how wacky or mundane, we’re all ears.


Get Your Hard Hat On

We’ll consolidate the cool and implement the informative, manufacturing storyboards and constructing blueprints with the opportunity of your input, as reference for when production begins, let’s not lose track of the goal!


Let’s Make It Better

Someone’s gotta make sense of all this! We’ve got just the people for the job – our keen eyes and rigorous attention to detail will delve into and rebuild whatever vague or clear concepts there is, refining them and making sure anyone could understand the messaging and key points of the project.

Our Creative Process – From Start to Finish

What is the ‘Creative Process’?
Making a video perfectly hit your goals comes down to a very important part of any production called the creative process. The creative process is where the original idea is formulated for the project – it needs to follow a few rules in order to work out properly. It needs to be informative, engaging, creative, and most importantly, unique. And if you follow that guide, your project will set itself apart from the crowd.
