Video Production & Editing
We are somewhat new to working with motion pictures. Due to demand for high quality videos with our style of composition, we have recently upgraded our camera to a Sony Alpha 1. This camera is capable of video resolutions as high as 8K and is capable of competing on par with some of the best Hollywood cameras in modern production. Our first major project will be producing cinematic videos of architecture.
Motion picture production is similar to still photography, but quite a bit more challenging as you add time, as well as motion in a 3D space to your capture. Video files are made up of 25 photographs per second, so the files are significantly larger, and post-production takes longer. Those are just some of the challenges. However, those differences can also enhance the impact of the message you wish to convey.
We are still quite busy with our focus on still photography, but check back soon and we will have some previews of our videography projects.
Customer Education Video
This video was shot in 8K and downsized to HD. Shooting footage this way allows you to zoom in and out which helps when cutting together footage and makes the presentation more interesting. Also, HD footage benefits by downscaling resulting in a higher image quality. This was shot on our Sony Alpha 1 and a 50mm f1.4 lens.
Walkthroughs for Estate Agents
We also do editing of self-produced videos for estate agents. We can produce intro/outro titles for you and you send us your videos via Dropbox, then we can edit them together and upload to YouTube. This service has been especially popular since the lockdowns have pushed viewings online.
The cost of editing a video starts at €20 + VAT. Title creation costs depend on the complexity of the design. Contact us if you would like a quote.
In the above example, we did the intro/outro and drone footage (the handheld walkthrough was provided by the estate agent) The resolution is HD 1080p.
What does it cost?
As I mentioned in the introduction, video editing can be very time consuming. For a basic low quality video like the 2 bottom examples, once the intro/outro are made, it may take only an hour to edit and render the video. However, for high production projects the amount of labour goes up exponentially. If you would like an estimate for your project, please contact us.
