That is a good question! And one that we certainly take seriously. Editing can become very tedious and time-consuming. It is common for clients to believe that their project is simple and just won’t take that long. In reality, though, things usually take longer than you would initially think. It is our goal, to complete your project in the shortest time possible, while providing the highest possible quality. Feel free to call us for an estimate of your job.
Not necessarily. Many of our clients are able to drop off their projects and give us detailed directions so we can edit their video on our own. This can really be a time- saver for you. You can go on about your day or week, doing your job while we are editing away doing our job! When we are done, you simply come back for a viewing and approval or we can send you an approval disc.

Sure thing! Just bring your project to us — your information, videos, photos, ideas, etc. — and we will supply the creative juice so to speak. Later we’ll have you in to view the entire video and make any changes you want.
Well, we can do just about whatever you want: video effects, video dissolves, wipes, titles, slow and fast motion, split screens, etc. Just describe what you are looking for and we will do the best we can to make it happen.
