Q – How do I get my footage to you?
If you are in London we recommend that you drop the footage in to us, get in touch and we will give you our address and arrange a mutually convenient time.
If you are not able to hand deliver the footage we recommend sending it to us via courier or special delivery. We will ensure that we are in to accept delivery and notify you as soon as it is received.
When we return your completed project we keep a copy on our system until you have safely received both the original tapes and finished DVDs and hard drive.
HOME VIDEO EDITING / FILM PRODUCTION:
Whenever possible we will visit you at home to collect your footage and photographs and then return with each draft and the final edit.
If we are not able to visit you at home we recommend that you use a courier or special delivery to send us your footage and photographs. We will ensure that we are at home to receive the delivery and notify you as soon as everything is safely received.
Q – How does the editing process work?
Whenever possible we will visit you at home to discuss your ideas for your film and play you some examples of our previous work. This meeting is obligation free and there is no charge for it.
When you commission a film we collect all the footage from you and set a date to return with the first draft.
We use approximately 5 minutes from every hour of footage that you have shot.
We will ask you for a list of music that you would like the film to be edited to or alternatively we can suggest a soundtrack for you based on your musical preferences.
We will license all the music used.
We return to play the first draft and will make a note of any changes you would like made. Alternatively we can upload the drafts to a secure website for you to view at your leisure. This process repeats until you are 100% happy.
Q – What are your turnaround times?
We can usually complete transfer work within a couple of weeks.
Please get in touch to discuss turnaround times for editing and filming.
We appreciate as much notice as possible but will always go the extra mile to produce last-minute projects whenever possible.
Q – Do you scan slides?
We can scan slides for use in an edited film but not as a standalone project.
