I had a great experience working with Shane from Optical Narrative. I needed help on a video project that needed a quick turnaround time. Shane was able to meet with me shortly after I put in the request and was able to complete the project overnight for me. The quality was great and the customer service was fantastic. In fact, I am already working on another project with Shane again due to the great experience I had. Highly recommend.

Details: Short film • 10 minutes • 5 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Shane was my first Thumbtack consultant, so I had a few technical things to learn about platform, but Shane of Optical Narrative was very patient, responsive, and professional. He delivered a quality product in good time. I will be sending lots more work to Shane.

Shane was fantastic to work with - really responsive, attentive, and produces high-quality work very quickly. He even proactively made suggestions on ways that we can make our overall video content better (outside of the work he was doing for us). Highly recommend working with him if you're looking for an extremely reliable and effective video editor/producer. Thanks Shane!

Shane did great at filming the video FAQs! There was a small hiccup along the way but he rectified it almost instantly and I'm happy with the results.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our standard rate for a single camera operator and equipment for a full day is $950. On most jobs we recommend using a lighting professional as well, our lighting gaffer is $750 for a full day rate. If you need a make up professional we can supply that as well. We can scale up and down your production based on your specific needs. Our post production services are $100 per hour and include color grading and visual effects.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get an over view of the project the customer has in mind and then look at any sample videos they have seen in the past. Looking at work the customer likes, gives me a good idea of what they want in a final product.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend a minimum of 2 seminars and or courses per year while viewing 10 to 20 hours of online content. This industry changes daily and you have to stay on top.
