Video edits can take anywhere from one to four weeks, with a faster turnaround possible depending on the situation. This is why:
Many people believe that making videos is as simple as filming and uploading, but there are numerous other processes that occur in the background. Before we even come out to shoot, we spend hours planning, storyboarding, scripting, location scouting, talent coordination, preparing our gear and much more.
We will not proceed to the shooting location until these steps have been completed. This is the easiest and most enjoyable part of our jobs as videographers because it is when “the magic happens.” We can record up to 300GB of content on a typical day of shooting, which takes a long time to transfer to hard drives and upload online.
The majority of the time is spent during the post-production stage of the process. We need to go through all of the day’s footage, prepare it for editing, and begin editing. We need to find the best track for your video, put it together in the best sequence, fix any audio that may have been recorded, colour correct the footage, add any graphics on screen, and, if necessary, add some SFX, export it, upload it, and send it to you for approval.
We are not satisfied unless you are, so we are happy to go back and forth until you are satisfied that you have the best-looking video possible (we’re pretty sure this won’t take long).
