Toronto Video Production
CYPHER VideoWeb is a Toronto Video Production company with a solid track-record spanning over 18 years. We have mastered the entire process – from scriptwriting, directing and videography to editing, post production and project management. Our approach to the production process is tried and tested, which allows us to be cost-effective, flexible and efficient.
We start by educating ourselves about your business, your audience and your video messaging. Based on your input and provided materials, we shape the idea into a script. This is the blueprint, the heart of the project.
Once the script is approved, the real action begins. Whether it’s at your location or in a studio, we conduct the shoot with precision and professionalism. It’s a fun experience for your employees and causes minimal disruption to your work.
This is where all the pieces come together and your video comes to life. From editing to sound recording, on to motion graphics and colour grading – our team of experts create a dazzling product that is not only compelling to watch but conveys your message effectively.

Frequenty Asked Questions
Every client’s requirements are unique and we tailor our process to best fulfil those needs. Having said that, here are answers to some basic questions.
Give us a call or email us with a brief description of what you’re looking for. Please attach any relevant material, such as website links, brochures, images or sample videos so that we can get a better understanding of your requirements. We will be then prepare a formal proposal which will include the creative treatment and quote for your project. If you approve, we can get started.
Once you “greenlight” the project, we will immediately get going on the script for the voice over. This is the most crucial part, as it will determine the thrust of your messaging. Working with you we will make sure that all main points are covered and that your target audience receives your message effectively and efficiently.
Simultaneously, we will plan the logistics of the shoot – identifying location(s), obtaining permissions, etc. If models are needed we will get in touch with Talent Agencies and forward you headshots of available options. Similarly, we will send you demos of voice over artists (male or female). Once you’ve made your selections the talent will be booked and the shoot date will be set.
We will then proceed to record the voice over. This is usually done before the shoot as it allows us to nail down the timing and gives us a better idea of the footage requirements.
Schedules vary according to project complexity but we generally begin editing as soon as the shoot is completed and in most cases clients receive the first cut of the video to review within 7-10 business days. We’re so focused and attentive to details that this first cut is often the final version of the production or very close to it. If there are any changes to be made we do those right away and send you the final version within a day or so.
We can deliver the video in any industry standard format you require. If the video is primarily intended for online use, such as embedding it on your website or uploading it to YouTube, we suggest the MP4 format. This is a universal format which allows for relatively smaller file sizes without compromising quality. We shoot and deliver in Full HD (1920×1080).
If the video is intended for broadcast we will create the video file as per the specific requirements of the TV station.
We always meet or beat deadlines. If the delivery date is unrealistic, we will let you know at the beginning of the project.
Video production is a fun process and you’ll enjoy working with us. We’re committed to delivering the best possible product – both technically and creatively. But don’t take our word for it. Talk to our past clients. You will hear nothing but good things – about how impressed they were with our work and how much our videos have helped grow their business!
