Christine, it was a pleasure working with you. I appreciate that when editing you didn't just "do as I told you" but made suggestions. Thank you for your thoroughness and dedication to my project.

Planning a video production for your small business:

It has been said that video production is 99 percent planning and 1 percent production. Time spent in pre-production will ultimately save you time and money by avoiding unnecessary mistakes and streamlining the production and post production workflow. We are expert planners and will guide you through the process, provide a timeline, and give you a framework for you to provide us with the information we need to deliver a quality project according to your budget.

People ask: How much does a professional video cost? A video producer once replied by saying "How long is a piece of string?" The cost depends on multiple factors, including the time it takes to write the script, number of days required for videotaping and location requirements, length and complexity of the program, amount of editing required, voice over and talent requirements, etc. We can give you a preliminary estimate after we get some information about your project. Complete the
Inquiry Form on our contact page and schedule an initial no cost, no obligation consultation. Tell us if you have a specific budget, and we'll let you know what we can provide for that amount.

We can show you samples and guide you through the process of understanding the most effective and affordable way to deliver your message and complete whatever video project you require. Following the initial consultation and preliminary estimate, a completed script is necessary in order to provide a more detailed estimate.

CUSTOM PHOTO/VIDEO MONTAGE

Testimonial


Hello Christine - I want to let you know that the DVDs you made for me, for the girls, really went over big. They really thought they were awesome!

To view a sample montage, "The Life and Loves of Mary Ellen" (40 mins.) and read about the "making of" please visit http://vimeo/2955320 (copy & paste the link in your browser).


A photo/video montage is an ideal way to share special memories. They are often used for: Weddings, Birthdays, Family Tree, Anniversaries, Biographies, and Memorials. We are able to incorporate other items, such as slides, poems, quotes, captions, narration, video clips, video interview, sound effects etc.

Ten to twenty minutes is a typical length for a photo/video montage. The estimated length for an 80-picture montage would be 9 - 12 minutes. Each picture is displayed for duration appropriate for the image as well as the theme of the montage and the accompanying music selections.

The finished product is much more than just a "slide show" and we don't thoughtlessly apply cheap effects. Each photo is individually sized, cropped, and adjusted to enhance its viewability. Motion and transitions are carefully applied to convey the mood and theme of your montage movie. Special effects are used sparingly and only when they have a purpose that serves the theme and your preferred style. We do not just "drop in" a music bed, as many companies do. The music is carefully cut,  mixed and timed to enhance the visual experience.

We can deliver your completed project on professional quality DV tape, DVD and mobile devices such video iPod.

Are you in a quandary about what to do with hundreds of slides you'd like to transfer to CD or DVD?

Contact us for a no obligation free consultation and we'll give you some tips and solutions that will best serve your purpose. It's not "one size fits all". Be aware of this when comparing prices. You might want your slides viewable on a computer screen only, or on dvd playable on your t.v., or optimized for both.  As you sort through your slides, make note of any special ones the might require a specific resolution scan if you think you might someday want to have an enlarged print made from the slide.  We'd be happy to give you more details when you
contact us.

DOCUMENTARIES

Testimonial


Dear Christine,
Thank you for your professional guidance. I could not pay enough for your sharing your knowledge with me during the many phases of my documentary and addressing my questions and concerns in your usual calm, professional way. It gave me the hope needed to attack the mountain of material and unlock a useful, do-able method to access it. I am very happy about your handling of the tapes I brought back, preserving all visual and audio, so that now we have been able to put it to use. Thank you for your monumental help in getting me through this.
