Brand Consultancy and Strategy
To strategize to sell a Brand is perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of advertising. As Prahlad Kakar rightly puts it that “Likeability is very different from sale ability”, it isn’t just the visual of a great logo or a clever tagline which will sell the product or service. We understand that there is a great deal of thought that goes into the target, demographics, competition, novelty and demand, which all come together to strategize and build a brand to market it successfully. Image and positioning always gain paramount significance as it all comes down to what the consumer remembers and takes away at the end of the experience.

Specialized Camera Equipment
Back in the day, when special effects, VFX, specialized equipment were entities unheard of in Indian advertising, we felt the urge to broaden our scope to a more progressive approach in film-making. More often than not, film-makers felt a certain disconnect in the shots they conceived in their minds to the execution they finally accomplished. From a drop of water falling into a pond to the heroine’s scarf blown away in wind, the finesse and detailing of the shot could only get across if the viewer could hold the moment for a prolonged time and were able to watch the action and grasp it before it got over. On a regular timeline, the speed of these actions was really high, they would normally take a second or 2 at most, the need was to extend it and make it slower and more powerful an impact. In order to do this we had to go abroad till the 90’s. Hence was born the need to get specialized high speed cameras and equipment which could record more fps (frames per second) and give our clients what they really wanted.
Line Production is figuratively described as performing a set of operations and setting the protocol in a repetitive manufacturing process. Conceptually, aesthetically or logically, each project is different and requires a set of creative's and techniques which are poles apart from each other. But at the base of any different project, lies the core called Production which essentially just follows one basic principle that the show must go on, come what may! Executing the Directors vision and dream and making it happen is what we do best.
A picture speaks a thousand words. We, at Genesis, have always valued our print shoots for Clients as much as our ad films because we believe that to capture an idea on a single frame is far more challenging than making the film. In a quest for getting that perfect shot, we have seamlessly integrated a pool of talent and ideas over the years to provided clients looking for a one stop solution both the ad film and print shoot to happen simultaneously while doing the campaign for them.
