SURVIVE MV CAMPAIGN
Josh Emerick + Ross Theisen
Mike & Team ENMY,
Our main objective bridging the transition between the previous music videos and coming into the next phase and album for ENMY. Additionally, we are excited to continue a working relationship between ENMY and JECP. As much as we want this project to be beautiful, we want to earn trust and form a long-term partnership while strengthening your brand.
We mostly looking at the Survive Music Video, but from our conversation have added in additional options to support ENMY in humanizing the brand with a album film and more promo support.
Below we have listed a few options to review and tune back into us for scheduling, questions, or concerns. We're eager for you to dig in and review!
With 2023 around the corner and the album is a larger tackle we want to not only continue visual support but do so in a way that matches and still remains financially responsible. We know this is the first of at least 3 possible videos for this album and with that we also want to play to your strengths, by shedding more light on your creative process, thinking and values by introducing more human pieces of content like talking head films and more of what we consider ground covering to marketing efforts along with the polished pieces like music videos and visualizers.
The main focus is the Survive MV, but we want to start supporting more as a partner, which long term will save dollars and shape the identity of this album. Below I have a few brief notes from Mike and my call to recap and start trickling ideas in towards future videso and connect each piece.
Discovery Call Notes
Transitioning from personal struggles to storytelling
Growing without Editorial Playlist/Becoming more sustainable
Humanizing the band through talking-head content/connection
More simple promo material for visual aides
Each song is a story/ Has a personal identity
Survive Bridges off the EP into general and ice in general, Describing and compartmentalizing
Silver Bullet: About experiencing heartbreak and they are the weakness and how fragile love can be
Stories and books for storytelling symbolism
Album teaser film + Micro-social cuts for more content around talking heads, track by track and meanings
Potentially using practice space in the future for talking-head content at a later point
This video is to be in your face around the band and be more focused on energy and performance. We want to streamline the shoot for a faster edit turnaround and keep costs more effective. From a creative detail in lighting, we will lean more towards yellows, oranges, and reds to match the lyrical content of embers and ash and want the band to be in distressed clothing. We would like to do a creative call to talk through ways this can be achieved so we can collaboratively make this come to life. Additionally looking at Detail shots of the band along with Circular motion to elevate the creative. We discussed using stock footage to make it more than a performer video and keep the video content more unique and a step above past catalog videos.
Warm Tone lighting
Studio band shots
Fire-fighter/burning ember b-roll (Stock Footage)
This film would be aimed at tackling the growth of ENMY, where you're heading, celebrating your fan base, what making the music means and a more heart felt approach and appreciation to this next chapter. The idea is to create content that is shareable, and grateful and give your audience something to really connect with. We can produce this one the same day in the separate studio location at the venue we discussed to create a more intimate setting.
Cinematic/Wide interview frames
Stylised with personal ENMY details
Doesn't have to be instruments, but that's a good start
Guided by us and workshopped before the shoot to save time in post
Matching b-roll from stock footage or band practices later
Live footage from a concert would be a great bonus or faked
Verbal Inspirations: warm - pressure - hero - saving

HOW WE DO,
WHAT WE DO
THE JECP WAY
By being consistent, persistent, and dependable, while treating people as people we will deliver great experiences for both our clients and team,
showcasing JECP as an example of great leadership in creativity, business practices, and community building,
ultimately leading to return customers, great word of mouth,
and earning a positive reputation for
care for our craft, service, and industry.
We work with artists and freelancers who embody these values,
as it ensures forward progress, creative outcomes,
and a culture of learners.
While providing a service has created a business,
in each aspect, we strive to create a personal and human feeling
to make all of this fun and approachable.
Our main goal is for these projects to establish a relationship over a transaction, and if we truly succeed,
we create a transformation in our artists.
Our leadership embodies "asking why" and embracing the exciting and challenging conversations that drive relationships forward.
Understanding our partner's needs is our foundation. We remain open-minded to ensure people's viewpoints are heard, cultivating the best projects consistently.
There's a lack of accountability, ethics, and gatekeeping within the music industry.
We do honest work with clear intentions; ethics are king in our decision-making.
We believe this leads to personal trust and the healthiest work setting, community, and vulnerability.
We partner with those who value a focus on growth, sustainability, and proactive momentum.
These efforts make for win-win-win scenarios, celebrating success together. The success of each artist and creative supports the success of the next. We make each play one at a time, realizing the long game takes a group effort by our team and our clients.
Every project takes a similar approach to create success. The biggest factor is staying clear and transparent in communication. Both parties want a project to work smoothly. We aim to reduce stress and answer questions, so we are in the most creative production mindset. Pre-production requires syncing everyone’s schedules, securing gear, locations, and freelancers, as well as preparing wardrobe, MU, and props. We run a tight ship with to-do’s for all parties and that’s how we deliver such consistent projects and experiences for our clients. Our ask is that clients respect the process and help us gather information and confirm along the way. Let’s make it a win-win scenario.

Survive MV Inspo
this is a great baseline creative focusing heavily on the band's performance, but in addition to our conversation we want to support making this bigger with the Stock footage option and fire and ash with the firefighter footage and bring a warm tone into the studio for band shots and potentially have ENMY dress in distressed clothing for the video to symbolism going through hardship and tie into Burn a bit. Cinematically we also want to add more circular motion and energy to the shots as a way to elevate this video beyond the other performance-heavy MV in the ENMY catalog.
This film is more of a documentary than what we have in mind, but nonetheless, we do think something like this diving into a more human approach to making the album, what this next chapter means, and where ENMY is heading would be the goal. We would be looking to shape this into a 2-3 min film with 2-3 social cut downs for promotional ads. Our hope is to not only educate your fan base but more importantly humanize ENMY and create more connections.

We see this as an opportunity to continue our storytelling, brand building and relationship with ENMY + Co. The artists we work with are driven and care for their futures and see JECP as a partner in creative decisions. We want to evolve our artists and give a pro-level treatment in return for trust in the creative process.
review. decide. Sign.
Take some time to look the full proposal over together, ask questions, and on our next call, we can dig into the nitty-gritty. We can decide which option suits you best and draw up the invoice, contract, and other paperwork needed to make it official during this call.
Once we have an agreement, we officially enter pre-production, setting dates, securing locations, props, gear, team, and all the small things in between.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns. We are eager to build something special for the ENMY and hope for one of these sticks!
"They excel at so many things; it's almost scary.
The amount of planning they put into every project is unmatched.
It's comforting to see how much they care about the project
and how every single detail is thought out well before the shoot date."
— Sean Divine, Guitar
