Tips On Budgeting Your Project

Julia Cowell
Budgeting any project can be a struggle, especially when it comes to video. Many people have a difficult time wrapping their heads around the costs associated with producing a video. The key to getting the results you want are putting together a budget that best fits the end goal. If you want an 8K crane shot of Times Square with your company’s logo superimposed on every screen, but you don’t have the budget to hire the camera, crane operator or shut down NYC traffic, you may have to rethink why that shot is important to the story you’re telling. But, if you want your video to convey a sense of elegance and style through smooth camera movements, it’s much easier to budget for a video with that in mind. So how should you start budgeting your project?

What Is High Quality Video?

Ryan Pratzel

I was recently asked to define "high-quality video" and it got me thinking: Shouldn't all video be quality video? Do you need the qualifier high? Regardless there are some ways to define quality or high-quality video. If you're looking to produce a video these are all things you should consider.

Starting a New Video Project

There’s a long standing joke in filmmaking: “We’ll fix it in post.” It’s a cringeworthy phrase that you’ll hear on set when a crew runs into frustrations with lighting or audio or an interview subject. It basically means, “we’ll fix it after the fact,” or, “we’ll find the story we need in the editing room.” Nobody wants to “fix it in post,” especially not your editor. Say that phrase near an editing suite and watch your editor’s eyes glaze over as they imagine 100 different ways they’d like to throttle the video crew.

We're Moving!

Ryan Pratzel
It's hard to believe we've been in our office on King Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia for nearly ten years. We have grown substantially since our move from our original office in Arlington. Now it's time to expand! September 4th we're moving to a larger office just a few blocks away. This new space is nearly twice the size of our current office. The new office will continue to feature our fast 10GB editing network, but will also offer a larger collaborative creative space. The space will also feature a small insert studio for filming interviews and presentations.
