About this pro
Eric did an excellent job for us. He was extremely professional and talented. We got a great film and created a wonderful story that came from footage that was not professionally shot and needed to be finessed. Picture, sound, music - all came together extremely well. We hope to work with him again in the near future.Aug 23, 2013Verified
I highly recommend Eric. He's very thorough, proactive and delivers outstanding value. He edited a number of interviews down to brief clips that captured the essence of the conversation. Basically I dumped all the B Roll in his drop box and got great finished videos in a matter of a few days.Jul 8, 2013Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is not complicated, but it is highly variable depending on each projects individual requirements. No charge for the first meeting to discuss what the clients needs are. No charge to provide a basic and honest quote rate/set of rates. A 25/25/25/25% payment plan is typical of a normal project. The first 25% pays for production planning, up to 50% gets the project shot, 75% begins the post production phases and the full100% is paid to deliver the project. Once the terms and project quote are agreed on by both parties, the time spent in planning, gathering crew members, equipment rental costs, transportation cost, calculating principal and post production costs are considered billable time. Naturally, all time spent producing content, managing crews and talent, streamlining the post production process are also time in which will be billed. But do not worry, this will all be accounted for as best as possible in the primary quote!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Workshops, seminars, equipment demonstrations and manufacturer newletters are my best friends for keeping up with this fast paced industry. Occasionally an adult ed class will be attended to make sure that the brain can still absorb things in a classroom setting.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Get at least 3-5 quotes from various service providers. Meet in person if at all possible before you utilize, and especially, pay for a service. As an example, I like to meet my clients in person or at least via video/phone conference to discuss in detail what is required from both of us before we really get started. Be open and honest about budget and timeframes.
