What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We first listen to what they are after, concept, end goal, planned use of finished product, budget. Then we discuss various ideas on how to execute this. Discuss the low end of their budget to the higher end. What works for them.
Then we go back and produce something to make the vision come alive, a working concept. After that has been present and reviewed, we make the idea a reality.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It has been a fun side hobby for many years, until the day came for our owner to quit his day job, he decided video was what he wanted to do the rest of his working life.

Best Recent Fun Project: We shot a music video for one of the owners favorite artists.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be sure the provider you go with has the latest HD equipment. Also they should know what video export works best for you. (IE. DVD, BluRay, YouTube, Facebook or Website download.)
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Budget. (To cut to the chase). Knowing your budget (high and low end) is many times the starting point to how big or how small the end product will be. You may have a dream, but in reality your budget may only give you a percentage of that dream. And nobody wants a percentage of a dream!
