Have you ever come to a point in your edit where you know you’ve got the perfect shot to use, but you just can’t remember where it is? Or have you ever had a bride request an extremely specific moment to be included in her film, but you don’t know which of your shooters captured it? Or what about having an audio source suddenly become unusable half way through editing a Best Man’s speech?

Never fear! Our workflow system is here!

Never miss a shot

Implementing our systematic workflow will help ensure you never overlook options for what to include in your video just because they’re buried under other media.

Save time and mental energy

Our defined system will help you overcome the difficultly of starting a project, allow you to work through the edit more quickly and efficiently, and prevent you from getting burned out at the end.

Work with a team

We developed this workflow not only to be more efficient with our time spent in each phase of a project, but more importantly, to keep multiple team members on the same page as the project moves from desk to desk.
