Music Video production:

Once the song has been produced, SNEED will develop the Artistes video idea and create their vision into a high quality product which will appeal to the Artistes public using the latest technologies available.

 

Radio and TV Commercials:

Once a client brings a concept or requirement to us we will nurture this idea, developing it through to its completion. We can also script radio and TV commercials from scratch, and source the most desirable actor for the voiceover or role within the TV commercials. We pride ourselves on producing a high quality product which will have the desired impact on the public and therefore give the client the best value for money possible.

At SNEED, we understand that the brand idea of a company is relative to its success and therefore strive to design a brand that will exceed the set expectations.

Corporate Market:

Our Corporate based work ranges from Kenyan based companies, NGOs and other non profit making companies as well being sub-contracted by other advertising agencies. We provide the best solution by producing theme music and songs for their documentaries, TV shows and launches. Some of these services will include providing them with music systems and public address systems for their events. The advertising agencies which include Scanad, ADCC, Express Advertising and Thompson Kenya among others all lie in the corporate market which is also the most profitable.

 

Arts Market:

Our Arts based work involves the musicians located in Kenya and East Africa who wish to produce their music and music videos. These include urban youth who are greatly influenced by the urban music culture, hip hop being the most dominant music culture in the world. The Kenyan youth listen to such music and attend shows purchasing merchandise that we have produced.
