Our video production service is divided into two categories:
Videography and Copying/Editing service
VIDEOGRAPHY

This service includes the videotaping of weddings, parties, important events, etc., and the production of promotional videos.

We have over 30 years experience in video production.  We have done hundreds of weddings in the Southwest Michigan area.

For promotional video work, we would be considered mid-level professional in our type of service. That is, we don't have the capabilities of the larger video production companies, but can produce a quality lower-cost promotional video for your group or company.

Pricing is based on the type of service and the location.  Promotional video production rates are based on length of video and amount of production work required.  (Prices subject to change-check with us when acquiring information)

*Extends to counties bordering St. Joseph County, Michigan.  Higher prices charged for distances farther than those counties.


COPYING/EDITING

Our in-store video editing service includes making copies of your videotapes to DVD at a cost of $15 for up to two hours.  Copies can be made from standard VHS, VHS-C, 8MM Videotape, or digital videotape.

We can also edit your video footage to rearrange scenes, delete unwanted scenes, or add titles.  Prices vary, depending on the type of work to be done.

Video transfers (putting old 8mm reel-to-reel movies on DVD) are priced by the amount of time on the finished DVD.  The first 30 minutes (minimum charge) is $65 and then $1.50 for each additional minute.  Movies on the small reels are approximately 31/2 minutes, the mid-sized spliced reel (about 4 inches across) about 15 minutes, and the larged spliced reel (about 7 inches across) are about 30 minutes long.  You can estimate your transfer cost by using these approximate times of movie footage.  One title at the beginning of the transfer is included (more can be purchased at $2 each if desired), and music is dubbed over the final product as part of the package price.
