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.
In, Over and Out
This video was produced to show off both Ireland, our drone footage, and our editing abilities. The footage is in 4K resolution. A cinematic style was our goal. Some noteworthy challenges in the footage were low light at evening, and flights close to the ground and near objects. Having good high quality music is also an important investment for any video. While I do play guitar and piano, you wouldn't want me to compose your music! There are many high quality sources on the internet for royalty free music that has a reasonable cost.
Welcome to St Nicholas Quarter
An estate agent client of ours wished us to produce some promotional videos for our local community. We made the intro and outro titles and shot drone video to be used to produce 4 videos with interviews of local people of interest. The resolution is HD 1080p.
Please note that the main footage is just shot by the client using an iPhone and the audio quality is quite poor. We did our best to improve the audio track, but traffic noise is difficult to remove in these circumstances. However, for being a very low budget production (around €20) we think the quality is quite doable.
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 also the still photography (video 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.
