Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. 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.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. 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.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. All of our work is done in-house. Our staff takes great pride in workmanship. They know that it is extremely important to provide each customer with a project that they will be proud of. I think that we do this especially since many of our customers keep coming back, some for over 25 years.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I think the personal interaction with the client and the creativity involved in this industry is the most rewarding aspect. My staff and I love the great feeling we get when a client comes in to preview their project for the first time. Their smile and look in their eyes just makes everything worth while.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. The most common question we receive is "can you do the project within budget and on time"? I can honestly say that since 1982, I do not remember an occurrence when we did not complete a project within the parameters we were provided. Please review our testimonial section on our website. I think these speak for themselves.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. 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.
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?
A. In February of 2011, the FCC made it mandatory that any TV broadcast programing of 5 minutes or longer in length, have closed captioning for the hearing impaired added. This is a service we added back in mid year of 2010 and seems to be growing with leaps and bounds. Our prices are extremely competitive and the "turnaround" time is the fastest in the industry. Give us a try.
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. 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.
