Allen Film & Video, Ltd.
KC Allen did a superb job with this project. It involved multiple shooting locations and interviews, as well as significant B-roll. Also had video from other videographers that had to be edited into the final cut. KC's video shooting skills are excellent, and his editing is masterful. This was a very high profile video and Allen Video delivered a masterpiece.Apr 25, 2016Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Much like buying anything of value, some of the costs come in the options you choose. When you buy a house or a car, the more you spend the more that it is customized to your desires and needs. Same with video. Higher budgets allow us more time, the ability to bring in more people to help, the flexibility to hire actors, the option to use equipment we may not have in house (rentals) and more. Many people think about the "$1,000 per finished minute" rule, which was coined in the 70's when everyone shot on film and gas cost less than a dollar. These days your budget can be very finely tuned so you're spending the right money on the product that's perfect for you and your business.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Education is constant. We're always buying or upgrading software, which means we have to be able to use it to its full extent.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I went to college to be a computer programmer. That lasted about two weeks, because I was in school for two weeks before I found out there was a college radio station on campus. Slowly I started to devote more of my time to the radio station and less to computers. In time, that investment worked out well because I landed in the radio industry for nearly two decades. The glass ceiling was ever present, though, so I took the next step and founded a video production company in 2001, and we're still open and doing business a decade later.
