Shaun successfully met my 12 hour deadline on a last minute project I needed done. Even though I gave him a tight timeline he did not skimp on the work, he clearly spent time editing and perfecting, while listening to all my notes and requests. We had the video done in just 1 revision (which is a first for me because I can be very picky!). Thanks Shaun! Will definitely use FD again in the future!Sep 25, 2019VerifiedFD Productions's reply
I’m super happy you liked the final cut! Thank you providing such clear direction and helping paint the narrative.
I hired FD Productions to do Post Production services and they FAR exceeded my expectations in terms of their work on VFX, sound design, and overall narrative flow and tone. They were more than just a vendor - much more like a true partner. I could tell the team really cared about my promotional video and went above and beyond to make sure the finished product was really impressive and of the highest quality. I plan to rehire FD Productions for all my post video needs.Jan 29, 2020Verified
Shaun provided us with a fantastic edit. He is professional, fast and imaginative. We worked great together! I highly recommend him.Mar 15, 2017Verified
Next year I will mark my 60th year in public television. 32 years of it were spent at KQED-SAN FRANCISCO, one of the flagship stations of the PTV system. There I started in the late 1950’s as a Stage Manager-Floor Director and eventually became a Production Assistant, Producer-Director, and finally Executive Producer of Local and National Production, as well as EP of all On-Air promotion and fund-raising.I've produced THE THREE TENORS. LES MISERABLES IN CONCERT, FRANK SINATRA-THE VOICE, and concerts by PERRY COMO (an Irish Christmas), HARRY BELAFONTE, and CAROL KING!! For the last 19 years as an Indy, I have co-produced and directed biographical performance Specials on THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS, THE KINGSTON TRIO. and LIBERACE. One on the great Bandleader-composer GLENN MILLER is currently being developed. My task at hand last week was to produce/direct a 7-minute short documentary on my 91-year old sister Renee Cary, who passed away in July. So..the version had put together for me was used for a 10am run thru Friday morning. Luckily I received permission from the Coordinator of the Event the next day to send them a revised version to be downloaded later that day onto her laptop. So I googled SANTA BARBARA EDITORS and up came the word THUMBTACK. Those folks asked me the critical questions, whose answers would lead them to recommend someone who mainly could do the job THAT DAY Friday in order to download it that evening. AND that’s exactly what happened due to the EXTRAORDINARY skills and terrific personality of SHAUN KHAN of FD Productions!!!! When SHAUN CONTACTED me and I found out he was in LA, while I was in Santa Barbara — I thought “same old same old”. Well i couldn’t have been more wrong!!!! Shaun explained to me on the phone that we would do the edit session using SKYPE to link us together. So we did and I was able to see and hear on my IPAD EVERY edit that he did after we were able to discuss what it was to entail—down to the VERY IMPORTANT to me speed of the dissolves between the photos.Oct 17, 2017Verified
Shaun was great to work with and would highly recommend him for your editing needs. I had to put together a short film that I shot a while back... After hiring Shaun, he was able to do an assembly cut for the short in no time at all. He even didn't even have that great of on set notes to work with since some of notes were missing from the production. But Shaun was quickly able to understand the narrative and what I was trying to go for in the story. I work with editors all day long so I have experience with producing short pieces. In this regard, Shaun is one of the best editors I have had the pleasure to work with as he takes notes and direction very well. He truly wants what's best for the project and has a passion to do the best he can. I would definitely work with Shaun again.Oct 3, 2017Verified
