Our specialties and fields of expertise


As 4K and 6K acquisition becomes more prevalent in the marketplace, we are prepared to film future-proof video for you.


Even though most video content is still shown in HD, by editing 6K or 4K video in an HD timeline we have more control over framing and more information for green screen and color correction.


Without a good script, it doesn’t matter what we film or edit for you. That’s why we offer experienced scriptwriting services to ensure your message comes across clearly and succinctly.


We are experts in Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop and Speedgrade. Our knowledge in these programs ensures high-quality post-production with all the latest tools available.


We can make a great video for you, but if no one sees it, you won’t receive a return on your investment. That’s why we offer Video SEO and distribution services to make sure the word about your amazing video gets out to your specific target market.




I strive to offer creative video production and editing services in a timely and efficient manner. That’s why I think it is better to spend more time in pre-production in order to ensure that the plan is solid and considerations like the budget and talent, and personnel are more than adequate to pull off the production without a hitch. Ultimately, it’s more economical to do things right the first time. I’m equally comfortable being the leader or being part of a team, I check my ego at the door when I have to perform. Additionally, I maintain a comfortable, yet professional rapport with the client, crew, and cast of each production in order to promote an atmosphere of excitement, fun, and creativity.
