What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our pricing system is a bit complicated, but only because our company does everything related to multi-media. The cost to convert videotape to DVD for preservation starts at $25, whereas the cost for shooting HD video is $250 for the first hour and $150 for each additional hour. All of our other services fall some where in between these prices. It's best to call for pricing.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our most common types of projects are the production of TV commercials, corporate videos, closed captioning and web videos. After that, it's CD and DVD duplication and the conversion of any audio, film and videotape format to CD, DVD or hard drive. We also do all file conversions.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We are very proud of the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" fund raising campaign video we produced. It was a very rewarding and emotional project. Our staff had the great opportunity to meet and interview many great women survivors of this deadly disease. Their stories were extraordinary and very compelling. We were allowed the freedom to be creative and it showed in the final product.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
In the video production industry, it is extremely important to check the service provider out thoroughly. Since our beginning in 1982, we have seen dozens of competitors open and then close their businesses, some within just 1-2 years. It is mandatory to provide a great service and product, otherwise you can not survive.
