At M-1 Studios, we partner with clients to develop the highest-quality video productions for a diverse array of products, services, marketing and training needs. Several of our productions are available for viewing on our Vimeo and Youtube Pages and Channels, as well as specific category examples below:

Video content that is adapted to your message (including color choices, fonts, and company logos) combines high-quality visuals with a specific focus on a particular aspect or product/service your business provides.
M-1 Studios partnered with Bozii to premiere the “What’s A Bozii?” campaign with storyboard visuals, on-location production services, and post-production editing that included text pop-ups, logo animation and photography elements.
Complete Company Overviews
Our most popular video production is the complete creative company/service overview video, highlighting specific business areas of service, expertise and background knowledge- often used for website homepages, industry-specific tradeshows and Facebook business pages.
From the creative development of an approved script with narration and sample questions, on-location production services include filming demonstration highlights, animation development, as well as optional interviews to create a complete visual overview within the chosen timeframe, as demonstrated here for Proto Manufacturing.

HD Television Commercials (Studio – Teleprompter)
With our in-studio teleprompter system, green screen capabilities, and on-call hair & makeup artists, M-1 Studios can provide high-quality effective broadcast-ready commercials filmed right in our studio.
M-1 Studios develops a commercial script that gets your specific brand message across while being considerate of the :15 or :30 second time constraints. With our teleprompter system, the talent looks completely natural while addressing the audience.
HD Television Commercials (Animation)
Commercial production using supplied Company or organizational logos and pictures to create an engaging animation, that is tailored to a particular message and never template-based.
Southfield Public Schools Michigan wanted to produce a 30-second commercial series for their College Tuition offerings that could reach the entire district area both online and with purchased airtime. Based on their initial concept, M-1 Studios produced unique animation content conveying the message, along with voiceover narration and music.
HD Television Commercials (On-Location)
M-1 Studios offers complete on-location production services, including location scouting and sourcing, casting of on-screen talent, and camera/lighting/sound setups.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wished to have a new :15 and :60 second commercial promoting Belle Isle as a vibrant tourist destination in Detroit. M-1 Studios cast all talent featured in the commercial, as well as scheduled a full production day on location, to ensure the highest-quality footage showcasing the state park.
Training & How-To Content
Training videos showcasing a particular product how-to or process can be filmed on-location with either actors or employees, based upon client notes or a developed script to ensure all particular steps are described.
These training segments can then be divided up into several individual segments for online use, or put together as a DVD for internal training use. Here is a sample of one of several after-purchase product training video segments, with voiceover recorded in-studio and demonstration of the steps requested by the client.
Social Media Video Series
Service-based businesses such as restaurants & stores benefit from our monthly on-location social media video production services, for content for Facebook fan pages, Youtube page promotions, and Instagram and Twitter feeds.
All production is completed same-day on location with quick post-production turnaround times, for timely posting of the videos as part of ongoing promotions and fan page updates.

Construction & Project Documentaries
The Sarah Jordan Boarding House at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, was documented as part of a complete historical restoration project completed by BELFOR USA.
Filming occurred throughout several summer months in order to produce this mini-documentary, as well as an extended half-hour television version showcasing the restoration and all aspects of the project. Voiceover narration was developed as the footage was reviewed and edited.
Non-Profit & Organizational Documentaries
We work directly with non-profit organizations to schedule and capture the content needed to effectively tell their story and gain additional outreach and support for their mission.
Affirmations has collaborated with M-1 Studios for the last 5 years to create short documentaries which showcase the ways in which the center supports the community. The videos are updated annually to screen at Affirmations’ spring fundraising events, and year after year, they set new donation records. Through the use of compelling, heartfelt interviews and on-location cinematography which captures the compassion that the center brings to Metro Detroit, these videos have proved to be an invaluable asset that Affirmations uses throughout each year.
