I love to hear clients tell me that "You hit the mark just right"" and "I love the polish and finesse on the edit." A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a cinematic video that captures the real essence of your special event...priceless!

    For over 6 years now I have relied on Emma Clark to assist in a wide variety of video shooting and editing. Emma brings a very special uplifting attitude to every assignment. Never late and 100% reliable. She has a creative mind and works hard to be as efficient as possible. A few years ago I moved her into a position where she does the entire production unsupervised by me. I actually have turned about half a dozen clients over to her care exclusively, managing them in the background while Emma does the entire production from shooting to final editing on her own. I can't recommend her service more to any video client, she has earned my highest recommendation.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
With new clients who are looking for an experienced professional to guide them to an excellent finished project: I like to dialog via a phone call to explore more of their vision and to offer suggestions from my repertoire. Then we can arrive at a mutual understanding of what will be involved and settle on a final price. For clients who are more experienced, I can take their direction and respond with excellent quality and turnaround times.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
On-the-job training with an industry professional since 2009. On-going live classroom and Internet courses in shooting and editing. I love learning new processes and techniques that I can incorporate into my work that will "wow" my clients!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Depending on the scope of the video project, I will charge per day, per hour for shooting and editing, or per minute of finished video.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
While hiring a professional video editor for a project for which I was producing, I had the opportunity to provide direction during the actual editing sessions, and became enamored with the power of video to actually sculpt and create a story that could have any number of nuances. I was hooked! For me, videography is the perfect marriage of art and technology.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I love working with clients of all backgrounds, disciplines and ethnicity. My experience has included large, high-profile corporate events, corporate instructional videos, weekly TV production, professional theater and dance productions, community and school events and productions, and life events such as weddings, birthday parties, funerals, Bar Mitzvahs, Quinceaneras, etc.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Most of my shooting and editing of late has been in the performing arts and academic venues. Typically I will turn around these types of projects in 1-3 weeks.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Experience is vital. Pretty much anyone with the desire can pick up a camera and shoot video. But with experience comes the nuances of how to compose the shots, and the special touches in editing that take your project from mediocre to excellent! Communication is key. You need to have confidence that your videographer listens to you and understands your vision for the project.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What is your overall vision for your finished project? Documentary style? Cinematic highlights? How many cameras are needed to accurately and completely capture all that is necessary to tell your story? For events with a DJ or a PA system, will an audio feed be available to the videographer?
