Frequently Asked Questions
Q: So how does this all work?
A: First of all, thanks for your interest. The process generally flows like this -> Initial consultation to determine what type of video that you're looking for (If I'm going to shoot video footage, then we set up a shoot date) -> Sign paperwork -> Meet up on shoot date and shoot video footage -> Then I'll take all the footage that I've shot and / or obtain any footage you provide me with and upload it onto my video editor and review it -> After this I'll edit the video and then send you a video preview -> You watch it, tell me how much you like it, and give me the green light -> Once I get the green light, I upload the video into my YouTube account and provide you with the link for you to share with all the world. You may request for a DVD copy of the video for $25. Extra DVD copies can be purchased for $5 each. If you want a copy of the video file for your computer, that will cost an extra $25.
For the memoirs and athlete highlight reels, your videos will not be published on YouTube for privacy reasons but you will automatically get 1 DVD copy of the final video. Extra DVD copies can be purchased for $5 each. If you want a copy of the video file for your computer, that will cost an extra $25.
Q: What's the turn around time on these videos?
A: After all the video footage and / or photos have been collected, it takes me 5-10 business days to complete and send you a video preview.
Q: Ok, sounds good. But how much does all this cost?
A: It really depends on the type of project that you're looking for. We'll discuss my rates during the initial consultation. I promise they are very competitive. Just look at how much I charge for DVD copies and video files. I mean, c'mon.
Q: Do you shoot weddings?
A: Sorry, I don't shoot weddings.
Q: I have my own video footage that I want to put in the video. What format do you need it to be in?
A: I've used video footage from DVD's, hard drive camcorders, Mini DV camera's, SDHC cards, any camera with a USB cord, iPhone and Android video clips. If you have a format on here that is not listed, contact me and I'll see if I can convert it. I do not convert VHS tapes to DVD.
Q: What do you use to edit with?
A: I'm an Apple guy. Currently I'm using Final Cut Express and iMovie to edit with.
Q: Can we get our video onto a blu-ray disc?
A: Unfortunately I do not offer this service at this time, but the DVD copy that you get is playable in a blu-ray player.
