BRAND FILMSMy favorite thing is listening to why you do things, watching your face light up and your voice change as you get excited about what you’re doing, telling the world who you are and explaining your purpose. This isn’t marketing. This is focusing your brand story so it’s engaging, entertaining, visually beautiful, and makes an impact on the audience. Your brand story isn’t just about what you do, it’s about who you are and why…
United Way of the Midlands
We started this relationship in 2015, and have created so many great films with their marketing team. This is an ideal collaborative relationship and they bring us exactly the kind of brand story projects that we love.

The Vista Guild
Our home base is at SoCo Columbia in the heart of The Vista. It’s a vibrant Columbia, SC neighborhood that is a very exciting place to be. This has been a great relationship for us because we get to be proud of our little home spot.

It’s been remarkable to work with such a fiercely dedicated group of educators and meet these amazing kids. Everyone we talk to is impressive and their focus on developing the whole child is inspiring.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Coldwell Banker approached us in the fall of 2016 to create some TV spots for them. Now, TV commercials are not typically our bread and butter, but we loved the concept so we jumped in headlong and are creating a series of spots for their different markets in Columbia, Charlotte, and Charleston.
Five Points carries such a special connection to folks in Columbia. It’s a place that a lot of us associate with our youth and our wilder side. In all of the years, it hasn’t lost its spirit and still has that rebellious nature. We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with the Five Points Merchant Association and are so proud to tell this story.
We’re so excited to be able to tell the big stories that are happening in our area. BullStreet is one of those big stories. It’s what people are talking about. We are bringing the story of BullStreet from their perspective, and in their words. This is the kind of project that really gets me excited to go to work. We get to work, once again, with the fantastic Flock & Rally. We did 6 videos in all, check out their page to see more. www.bullstreetsc.com
We are always so excited to participate in events that enrich our community. Many of our non-profit clients will invite us to cover events for them to help raise money or just simply showcase what they’re doing. On the other hand, there are those massive, long-running, successful events like St. Pat’s in Five Points that are just awesome to be around.
WHO ARE WE?
We are Cinema Couture. Our goal is for you to reach your audience.
The key to that is the way we tell your brand story. The film should be beautiful, meaningful, and should hit your potential audience in the heart.
Our process starts with getting to know you and what you’re about. We want to understand why you’re here and what you would want to tell the world if you had a chance. Then once we have this amazing video that you really believe in, we help you figure out how to share it with the world and make the most of the few minutes of attention you can get from people.
Couture means custom made. We specialize in brand storytelling. That is who we are.
WHO DO WE WORK BEST WITH?
Our process isn’t for everyone.
We want clients that don’t have to hide behind marketing speak and statistics. We want clients that are focused on the long game and interested in building a great marketing foundation.
We work very well with non-profits because of the wealth of stories they have. But we also love working with small businesses that have a great foundation of passion and hard work to tell the world about.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I BUDGET FOR THIS?
Our films start at $1500 and it depends completely on how many shoot days it takes us to get the story. On average our clients invest $4000 on their film.
