Frequently Asked Questions

Can I talk to you before beginning a project?

Absolutely!  A discovery call is a typical part of deciding to work together, although I have accepted projects over Messenger or email alone at times.  If you’d like to schedule a call, you can fill out the form above, or go directly to my scheduling link HERE.

What is your typical turn-around time for video editing?

This definitely depends on the length and complexity of your project.  Typically, I like to request a week, to allow time for file transfer, rendering, and a review process.  As we work together, it’s possible that we may develop a different timeline.

Alternately, if you are looking for short videos and very light editing, it may be as little as 2 business days.

Let’s talk about your project to see what you need! 

How do I get my videos back?

For file transfers, I will set up a dedicated Dropbox folder for you.  You can add any users from your team who would need access.  If this is a one time project, access to that folder will remain for 30-60 days past final approval so that you have time to remove any files. 

Tech support options include uploading to YouTube or your course program.  With that option, the video would also be in your Dropbox folder if you wanted to save it separately as well. 

Do you provide video strategy with the editing?

We all have our strong suits, and I would be doing you a disservice if I provided you with strategy sessions for content creation, scheduling or new trends.  However, I do know some wonderful strategists if you would like a referral.

If you want strategy for how to record better or changes to make the editing easier, then yes, I can help you with those strategies.  In my corporate life, I also was a videographer so I know about lighting, framing and have picked up more tips that help for online videos as well.

Ok... but really, WHICH of your 8 favorite ice cream flavors is your real favorite? As a word person, don't you know the meaning of "favorite"?

You’ve got me there!  The day I wrote this, cookies and cream was my favorite.  I haven’t had it in quite a while, so it sounds great.  If you ask in a call, it might be different.  If it’s December, it might be mint chocolate chip… there’s just something about the Christmas season and mint.
