Review of Brace Media by Neil Hillman

Dominic has proven on many projects with us, to be totally reliable and utterly trustworthy. We recently mixed a feature film that required replicating on dvd at very short notice, when our US distributors experienced technical difficulties close to the Premier and Press Launch. The Dolby sound tracks that we produce at The Audio Suite are complex; the correct Dolby encoding process to dvd is complex; but Dominic handled the situation perfectly, delivering to both my, and my clients, complete satisfaction – on time and on-budget.

We use Brace Media extensively as a 'partner offering' to support our work at The Audio Suite, with both national and international end-users. Dominic's attention to detail, specifically with regard to the precise requirements we demand of him for the Dolby soundtracks we create, means I have total confidence in how the final product will be received and enjoyed by our clients and their audience. I unreservedly endorse this talented man and his fine Company.

[They] were outstanding at not only translating the brief from concept to finished animation, but also creatively enhancing it. The animation has been a great success – explaining a complex process in a simple and engaging way. When I needed to edit the animation down to half its original size they were able to turn the job around in literally an afternoon. Exceptional talent and stupendous value – look no further!

Just a quick note to you and your team for the fantastic work that you have provided for us and Gazeley over the last few weeks, it has been really appreciated. We won the job – the feedback from Advantage West Midlands is that it is the best presentation they have had.

Dom did a fantastic job when it came to the DVD authoring of our film: 'Whatever Happened to Pete Blaggit'. The results were exactly what we wanted, he delivered on time and was very professional.

Keep meaning to get in touch so that I can pass on my appreciation to you and your team. The work (product and service) you have provided us and our clients over the past few years has always been top quality and very consistent. Brace are a truly valued partner that I have the utmost respect for. Thank you.

Dominic has provided peerless service. A great person to speak to and always willing to help, I couldn’t recommend Dominic and Brace highly enough

Plus One have only started using Dominic this year following a recommendation – we have never looked back. Previously we had used an online company for our CD/DVD printing and replication. But dealing with Dom and the team is a pleasure, quotes fired straight back, superb quality, sound advice given when required and deadlines met or beaten! Nothing is ever too much and they pull out all of the stops on those tight deadline projects. The last project that they produced for us was on a tight deadline and needed some Flash work producing before they could start printing and burning the CDs. They delivered the complete job 48 hours before the deadline. What can we say – outstanding!

Got the CD’s early yesterday morning – I’ve checked a few and all is good, & they look great. Thankyou for your very professional & efficient service. Will certainly use you next time.

Dominic has repeatedly delivered a cost effective and efficient service for us here at Birmingham City Council - providing excellent quality and responding accurately and imaginatively to our briefs.

I define Dominic as my 'technical producer' because he has become my reliable go to resource for all post-production services. He was initially brought online in the distribution phase of a digital feature film that I produced, where he designed and formatted for mass duplication a multi-language, subtitled, multi-format DVD version of the movie. This expanded into technical design, production and branding of a premiere marketing initiative including a large-scale photo-story exhibition, all print media including z-cards, trailers, and music videos, and the re-design of the movie website to be more impactful and user friendly. Six years later, and now operating from Canada, Dom continues to be my go-to resource for all things design and technical production, including provision of reformatted movies for international distribution, supply and updating of digital media assets, and archiving. Always efficient, timely, extremely knowledgable, overly able, open to ideas and input, Dom is my rock for all things technical in a sometimes unfathomable digital world.

You are amazing, I literally can not thank you enough. I am really happy that the picture is looking good and the sound encoded as Dolby 5.1. I just got back in and was greeted with the DVDs, Blu-rays and hard-drive. I immediately viewed and can honestly say they look amazing. Thank you so much for all the help and support. I am also currently developing my Debut Feature film, so will be in touch.

Brace Media helped me get my website up and running and taking orders in a matter of just a couple of days for my very urgent launch.
It's done well the past 12+ months and I am looking to build a refreshed website and brand with them very soon.

Brace Media Q&A

Brace Media Q&A

What makes a great website?

A website needs to do a few things.
It needs to be a pleasure to view and experience. It needs to guide visitors easily to where they want to go and to the information they want.
And, if you are offering paid products or services, it needs to be able to steer visitors to those services so that they can benefit from your skills or products, and be able to book or pay for them.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What is the purpose of the website?
What visual styles do you want or like? Give examples.
What will your clients get and benefit from visiting your website?

What information do you need from a client before you start work?

The information we need is about who you are, who your customers are, what are you trying to say to them, and how.
We must understand this before we can try to help you put any message out there.

What sorts of printing projects do you usually cater for?

For printing, we've covered everything from business cards and other printed stationery, to promotional flyers and brochures, to posters, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, pretty much most things you can think of.
Our prices always include free shipping to one UK address.

Describe your creative process.

We'll start by discussing your thoughts and plans, and goals. Next we take that and input on styles you like, and depending on your budget, either crack on with one or two visual concepts and proceed from there, or offer you a myriad of design choices to look at. Once a design is chosen we'll refine it, take it to print or convert that into a live working website.
For video, motion graphics, 3D animation and DVDs, we're far more locked down due to the complex processes needed, so where needed, we'll storyboard concepts first so we all know the direction, and get cracking from there. Progress along the way is shared, though rounds of revisions are limited - so it's best to get your comments and feedback organised.

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

The information we need is about who you are, who your customers are, what are you trying to say to them, and how.
We must understand this before we can try to help you put any message out there.

What do you love most about your job?

We love creating wonderful imagery and storytelling.
But what we do isn't about 'graphics'. It's about people. It's about you. It's about communicating from one to another.
We love to help you succeed, and that's what excites us the most.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Brace Media was an evolution from a previous company, itself founded in 2004. We created that due to the lack of quality out there, and because there were no jobs in the fields we wanted to work in after 9/11 (that impacted media and especially the animation industry in the UK heavily, as US stopped spending money outside of US, so many UK companies died).

Why should our clients choose you?

Why should clients choose us? Maybe they shouldn't choose us. Maybe we are not the right fit for each other. That's fine.
We'd rather serve and work with people who value their business, want results, and are willing to invest in themselves to get results. If you can't spend money on your business, why would you expect your clients to spend money with you?
