Intelligent Octopus Services

Your Message + Consistency = Visibility & Impact!


Intelligent Octopus focuses on polishing raw video footage into professional finished videos, with options to repurpose, for video podcasters and course creators so you can focus on connecting with and drawing in your audience (and, you know, increase sales).  With over 20 years of experience, we’ve got your video editing details so that you can plan, record, and move on with confidence! 


Video Editing Services

You could choose a simple video editing software, hand your editing over to a VA or hire someone off Fivrr, but if you’re here, you know that the best quality comes from an experienced editor who is going to care deeply about your project.  In addition, you have the choice of adding tech help with uploading your video or copywriting support for show notes or emails, from the same place that creates your video. If you’re looking for a streamlined way to get your videos finished, and set to go, you’re in the right place!

What is it like to work with me?

Straight-to-the-point communication and deliverables!  You’ll receive the attention you require, the details you need, and timely check-ins on the process of your project.

  1. Discovery call: let’s chat about the extent of your project or projects. If it all sounds good, we start with a contract and deposit or 1st month payment then…
  2. Get the pieces together: We’ll use a dedicated Dropbox folder to share the resources to get your project started.
  3. The magic happens: You record and upload to Dropbox, then focus on anything else as your message is polished and prepped for the world.
  4. You revel in your new simple, sustainable process and your videos just keep coming!

Looking forward to chatting with you about your video project.  Let’s make sure the world hears your brilliance!

Core Values:

Your standard octopus keeps things very simple: hide, hunt, make more octopuses.  

Intelligent Octopus does a few more things than that, but I still believe that core values should be simple.   Here’s what IO finds most important as your message is polished to best reach your humans:

Humanity- We are people, talking to people.  Let’s find what we have in common and focus there first!  We’ll figure it out together from there.

Grace-  Speak well, speak gently, and always assume the best of others.  In the way we communicate, do business, and take responsibility for what goes wrong.  We’re all imperfect.

Education Anything alive grows.  Humans grow by learning and experiencing new things.  If you’re not growing, then you’re stagnating or going backwards.  So, we want to always look for new things, and to provide new ideas as well.
