Merve did a great job editing my wedding video. I was glad she took on my project since she is not a wedding video editor but truly a professional in commercial production and editing. She was a pleasure to work with and I will recommend her editing to my own clients that I work with as a Location Manager in film and television.

Lindsay is really brilliant...and she works quick! If you have a video problem or emergency, she can provide solutions and do your editing, seemingly, in the blink of an eye. Her fees are beyond reasonable, and I told her that. I know nothing about video, my first time ever being in a video, and never done any kind of editing. But, I think even experienced editors would benefit from her perspective--- she has a good eye for what works, to make anyone's projects as visually appealing as can be. She took some footage of mine that was rather raw and unflattering, and turned it into something wonderful !!!

Tonnie was delightful to work with because, being that the entire project was explained over emails and phone conversations, she went through the entire shots list and character list with me until she understood the project, and tried her best to deliver asap knowing the time sensitivity of the project. The best part about working with Tonnie was that her pricing was honest and she offered a free service for first time clients - that within 48 hours of final delivery, she would fix anything you found that needed it, free of charge. Tonnie can do what most people in video editing cannot - and that's negotiate fairly regarding the business side of the project and the fact that there may be misunderstandings when trying to convey an artistic idea - she leaves room for conversation and evolution so that everyone is satisfied - that's why I decided to give her a bonus payment in the end. Tonnie kept communication open and forthcoming with questions. I felt confident the project would be successful because there were daily emails and weekly phone calls until the project was complete. Tonnie's attitude was upbeat, positive, kind, friendly and sincere. In the end, with one or two fixes, she completed the project as I'd expected and all is well. I recommend Tonnie for anyone who wants an honest, hard working, happy video editor that does a good job and delivers what you want.
