My most common method of editing is to provide a quote for a fixed price, based on your edit decision list. Using the raw camera footage provided from the session, you can watch and listen to everything to decide which takes are best by creating an edit decision list. This is done after production and is used to render a high-definition file (finished product). I will provide a sample list to help you get started.
I spend additional time changing camera angles, adding crossfades as well as fade INs/OUTs, trimming the video’s length to match your final required duration, synchronizing the audio track with the video track, and finally, rendering the high-definition file for your approval.
For multiple-camera packages, I use my own artistic judgment with regards to changing camera angles and transitions in the editing process. If you would like to change the camera angles yourself, this would be quoted at additional cost.
A second method of editing is to do the editing with my supervision, where you will have full control over what works and what doesn’t. You can work with me in my studio at an hourly rate (please contact me for this rate). I work very efficiently, and a lot can be accomplished even in just a couple of hours. Working with me in the studio allows you to instantly see the results and make changes quickly (including camera angles).
A third method of editing is to have me choose the best takes for you using my own musical discretion. This method is designed for artists who are extremely busy and do not have time to choose their best takes. Please contact me for a quote for this method.
The best quality audio is always used throughout the post-production process and can be provided by myself, the venue, or another audio engineer.
If you need to add video titles and/or credits for specific selections, please contact me for a quote.
If you need to go back and make new changes (new edits or change camera angles), they would be quoted at additional cost. If not, the editing process is complete. I can then use the high-definition file to make you a DVD, Blu-ray Disc or convert the file for use on publishing on YouTube.
