A-La Carte Production Services

Media Miracles – Sensibly Priced

Turn Key Productions

What do you have to say, show or demonstrate to the world? These days everyone has a camera, but can they tell a compelling story?

Like a good journalist we find the heart of story, the human side of your business – and the key to engage your viewers.

Video Editing

Your footage or ours – bring what you have (business or personal), and we’ll edit it with you.  

We can improve, update, up-rez or incorporate new footage, add music, effects and graphics to taste.

The possibilities are endless. 

$60/hr.

Videography.

Today everyone’s got hand-held devices, but to get good sound and picture it still takes wireless mikes, professional cameras, tripods even. We can do that – and give you the footage/files for later editing.

BTW: We don’t  do weddings.

 $100/hr.

Digitizing your Photographs

Do you live in Santa Barbara and have old photos or film you’d like to preserve and don’t wish to risk them in the mail? Using our high speed, great-resolution scanners we can create digital copies while you have a cup of tea – and upload to the Cloud or to your thumb-drive.

 

$60/hr (300-500 photos/hr)

Voice Recording & Sweetening

If you have something you’d like to read, perhaps make an Audio-book or a podcast – we have just the mike and the place.  We can add intros and can even score original music or soundscapes (great for audio meditations or visualizations).

 

$50/hr.

Music Magic

 

 

For films, theatre or a live events that needs extraordinary sound and music, call us. We have written and scored songs and music for many movies and live performances (see Credits).

Family/Historical Videos

If your parents or grandparents are still alive – perhaps in their eighties or beyond, catch them on video before it’s too late.  Honor their lives by preserving not only some of their photos and stories, but also a bit of their spirit.

Our elders, and the “Great Generation” in particular was the last generation who knew life on planet Earth before everything changed. Mass transportation, television, computers, cell phones and the Internet was all invented in their lifetime. When they are gone, so is their sense of life and a world that will never be again.
