What’s Full HD?
We’ll produce your video at Full HD resolution  (1080p)  – That’s a higher res than 720p and good enough for those huge HD TVs.

Can You Write Me A Script?
You can either supply us with a rough script and we’ll hone it so that it gels with the video. Or you can just give us a general outline about your product, company, or service and we’ll produce something for you based on what you say combined with best video marketing practice.

My Friends Reckon I’m Quite Fussy – How Many Revisions Can I Have?
We allow three revisions to the video project before we have to start charging by the hour.

What About Music? Can I Use Robbie Williams?
Er, no. Not unless you want his lawyers to sue your ass off. Never mind, we have much more suitable options. We include a fully licensed copyright free music track in each package. We’ll choose one to suit your business and the feel and tone of the video.

So What’s All This Video Encoding Malarkey?
Video encoding is crucial in showing your video off in the best quality on the various video platforms.  We select the optimum bit rate, file format and gamma for each platform – so you don’t have to. We’ll encode different high quality versions to suit the major online video hosting platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo and Wistia.

Can I Have A Hard Copy Of The Video File?
Yes, we will supply you with a maximum quality video file as a hard copy on DVD – so you can reuse it, re-edit, or re encode it at a later date if you so wish. Note: A copy of your completed video file on DVD is not the same thing as an entertainment DVD program with menus and stuff. It’s simply a hard copy of the video file.

Who Can I Contact To Discuss Different Aspects Of The Project?
Your Project Manager: A single person will be assigned to oversee your project.

Can You Upload My Video To YouTube?
Uploading to YouTube consists of uploading your video in the optimum file format and at the optimum bitrate for that platform. Currently we upload to all video-sharing platforms at 720p, which is more than good enough right now – good enough for our company videos in fact. If we uploaded at the full 1080p the videos would not stream (play) as smoothly for some people with less powerful computers and devices.

Can I Have A Voiceover Like In The TV Commercials?
Yes, a professional voiceover is a feature of certain packages. It’s perfect for topping your video off and giving it a final polish. There’s nothing as impressive as a good professional voiceover artist speaking your script.

There’s a wide range of voice over artists available – including the very ones you hear on TV. But as you might imagine those artist are hideously expensive and beyond the budget of most SMEs.

Happily, there are plenty of unknown (affordable) voiceover artists who sound just as silky smooth, rounded and fulsome as the ones on TV. So rest assured we’ll choose a great voiceover artist who will give your video a commercial TV sound and feel.

What’s Keyword Research?
When people are looking for a particular type of video on YouTube (or anywhere else) they type in keywords or search terms – like, for instance, ‘Wedding Videos’, ‘Beautiful Wedding Dresses’ ‘Funny Weddings’ ‘Amazing Wedding Venues’ or just ‘Weddings Leeds’. Now, if you run any type of wedding business I’m sure you can see the advantage of having your YouTube video tagged with these keywords pop up in front of them? A video with a ‘Buy Now!’ or ‘Visit our website’ message placed at an appropriate point.

What’s SEO Optimised?
That’s where we take the time to use the appropriate search terms and ninja tricks to tag your video, add strategic captions and links back to your website, so that when people click through you can then sell them some stuff.

What’s Premium Video Hosting?
That’s where we upload your video to our Vimeo account as well as YouTube. The advantage of Vimeo is that, as a paid service, it tends to offer slightly better playback quality to YouTube so it might look nicer embed on your site. Vimeo is the place professional video artists choose to host and highlight their work.
