Once I have received your content it is then transcoded and logged into my system so that the file extensions of all the existing content match the desired output for my non linear editing system. It is here the file names are properly labeled so that when assembly occurs each video file is uniquely defined (hereby making the editing process quicker).
At this point all of the existing content is imported into my editing system. Once all of the media is properly placed into the desired folders we immediately sync all of your second system audio to the existing footage and replace the desired audio to the footage. Please note, it is desired to have an onboard camera microphone (on and recording) while still generating second system audio.
Sometimes there are bits and pieces of undesired content hidden within different video files. Whether it be a slate, the director calls action or cut, or the camera moves focus off of your subject, these things need to be cut out. Sub clipping is the process of trimming the fat so that the now labeled video files contain only the leanest (or most important) portions of the video. The now sub clipped video files are then organized into different folders and the assembly edit can now begin.
This is the actual editing portion of my process. At this point all of the meticulously handled content are placed into a sequence that best tells your story. Think of this as a giant puzzle that needs to be put together.You have all of the pieces in front of you, now you need to put them all together in a way that conforms to the grand picture. The assembly process is just that. Putting all of your video files in a sequence of which best represents your vision.
The best part about all of this is that you don’t have to meet up with us every time we have a new cut available for you. The luxury of today’s technology has granted us the blessing of remote communication. Once your video has been edited you will be sent a private link and Password to view the edit and critique. Only you will be able to see this video. Once you have made your notes you simply deliver the notes to me and we make the changes based on your decision until the Video has been crafted to your expectations.
If you would like to sit down and go over the edit in person, I can accommodate your needs. My editing suite is set up for you to kick back on a comfy couch, have a drink (or a bite to eat) and watch your edit on a 65 inch flat screen television. Please notify me know if you would like to schedule an editing session with me inside my editing suite.
Here it is! The fruits of your labor turned into a video sequence that you are truly proud of. Once we have received approval from you and you are happy with how your video turned out it is then time to export the sequence into a file extension that best suits the platform that you will be displaying your video. Whether it be the web, cable television, DVD, Blu-Ray or a digital projector your video will be exported to your desired file extension and compressed to your liking. Your video is now ready for pick up and will be waiting for you on a Hard Drive, DVD or Blu-Ray.
And now I present you with your video, completely ready to go. At this point it is your choice how you would like your video delivered to you. I offer two methods of delivery. The first is a hard copy of your video on Hard Drive, DVD or Blu-Ray. The final video will be delivered with all of the RAW footage provided and gathered and will also have all working project files to refer to. The second method is remote delivery via a private link with a password. From this link you will be able to download your video directly to your Hard Drive.
