CREATIVE SERVICES

Based out of Montreal and backed by the biggest media empire in Canada, CREATIVE SERVICES is a team of bilingual video professionals who are ready to do big things for you.

We admit it.  We are BIG!  As part of the Bell Media empire, CREATIVE SERVICES has access to more technology than you can imagine.  From Gimbals to GoPros and Avid to After Effects, we’ve got it all.  And we know people - lots of talented people.  It’s one of the advantages that comes with being in a family that runs TV and radio stations across Canada.


But did you know that the CREATIVE SERVICES team can leverage our network for you?  We’re a bilingual group of video production innovators, and when we’re not making award-winning promo spots for CTV Montreal, we’re out there producing TV commercials and videos for clients who want to deal directly with the producers and technicians who make it happen.

Need someone to come up with the perfect concept for your budget, and then carry that concept from script to screen?  Maybe you simply need to animate your logo, translate a script or shoot an interview on the other side of the country.  Whatever it is, CREATIVE SERVICES is here to help.  

And no, you don’t need to advertise with Bell Media to access all this expertise.  Want to stretch your video production dollar to the max?  Contact us here at CREATIVE SERVICES and let’s start talking about all the big things we can do for you!

 

 

WHAT WE DO

CREATE YOUR VISUAL IDENTITY Using smart and simple language, we distill your selling points into TV commercials that engage.  We also write and produce longer-form videos for websites, paid programming and screenings at special events. We adapt to your needs.

AGILE PRODUCTION TEAMS From high-end productions requiring full crews, Cine cams and lighting to run & gun style DSLR shoots, we do it all.  We also have access to large stock footage and music libraries, along with Bell Media’s vast network of bilingual on-camera and voice talent

HIGH-END FINISHING TOOLS Bell Media’s broadcast infrastructure drives all of our post-production facilities.  We work with industry-leading editing, graphics and sound mixing tools.

SUITE AND STUDIO RENTALS If you want to steer your own creative and simply need access to our broadcast tools, you can rent our post edit and audio suites on an hourly or daily basis, with a technician.  Studios with electrified grids and set photography are also available.

BROADCAST DELIVERY SERVICES Sending broadcast media to TV stations can sometimes be tricky.  We can help you translate, subtitle, encode, close caption and deliver your content to stations in Montreal and beyond.

 

FOR EXAMPLE


Groupe Auto Force
is 7 different dealerships, all in one location. But car shoppers weren’t familiar with the name. Script, shoot, post – we did it all, including the cool drone shots that helped put Groupe Auto Force on the same page as names like Spinelli and Gabriel.


Leonardo Da Vinci Centre
Bringing Leonardo and his 500-year-old studio back to life on a shoestring budget was a real challenge. First, we held a casting to find our talented actors.  Then we crewed up to gather the costumes, wigs, and props that make this spot so much fun.


Acteurs de Changement
This touching tribute was shot run & gun-style in a single morning by a one-man crew. It’s a style of production well-suited to employee profiles, for example, and was part of a web series sponsored by Bell promoting grassroots heroes effecting real change.


EMSB
The English Montreal School Board's investment in vocational training is massive and the amount of real-world technology they possess simply dwarfs that of competing private schools. We shot at their four campuses over the span of six days with one simple goal: show the technology.


CERIU
Revitalizing urban infrastructure is serious business. Do you have complex subject matter that needs to be communicated? We can help! This three-minute video was shot at several client conferences over a period of three months.


Kaspersky
Producing a commercial entirely out of stock shots is a smart way to keep costs down. But the key to making a great stock footage spot is ensuring that images from many different sources all come together with a uniform look and feel. That’s what we did here for Kaspersky.


PurLift
Need a bit of 3D for a commercial or corporate video? We created this 3D animated spot for PurLift’s sponsorship of games on Hockey Night in Canada.


94.3 Énergie
The Radio Énergie team is always looking to expand their social media profile.  We stitched together this longer form, broadcast-quality video for them using an eclectic mix of fun stock shots, cool graphics and skillful editing.  Their Facebook fans really liked it!


CJAD 800
We often produce for fellow Bell Media stations. When long-time radio powerhouse CJAD 800 wanted a campaign appealing to a younger demographic, our motion graphics team created a series of slick typography-style spots that reach out and grab your attention.
