- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I am offering to film and edit Wedding videos for a discount rate, in order to build up my portfolio. I am also offering very reasonable rates for other types of events, within the general Southern California area. Please see my website for current information.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1) Exchange messages through Thumbtack; 2) Phone conversation with the customer, in which we determine time, place, and duration for the event. In addition, I'd like to get an idea of what the customer wants and expects. We will also work out the cost of the service; 3) Film the event; 4) I then edit the event footage. The time it takes to do this depends on the duration of the event, it's complexity, and the customer requirements for the length of the deliverable. 5) Usually, I am done editing within a couple of days. I'll send the customer a link to the video on Vimeo, so customer can preview and suggest any changes before I deliver final product. 6) After making required changes (based on customer feedback), I will upload the completed video file to a download site. 7) Once customer has paid me for the product, I will send an email containing a link to the customer, where the video file can be downloaded. 8) Other options for delivery could include a physical flash drive, or a BluRay disk. In these cases, the deliverable will be physically mailed to the customer (so, there will be a delay before the customer actually receives it).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took a videography class at UCLA about 10-12 years ago. I have been working with video (cameras, editing) for quite a number of years. Equipment available to me: 1) Sony FX30 Cinema Line camera (4K capable); 2) Camera-mounted microphones; 3) Tripod; 4) Lavalier microphones, with wireless transmission; 4) Gimble (Steadicam); 5) Separate audio recording device, capable of recording audio directly from a sound board. 6) DJI Air 2 drone;
