Video Editing

We use the best state-of-the-art professional editing software suite – Adobe Premiere Pro and can provide our editing services both in our studio and on-site.   Patty Mooney is our primary editor whose award-winning work has been seen on television, in corporate projects, and on the Internet.  Patty learned how to edit in the 1980’s when editing was linear and you had to use to behemoth 3/4″ video machines to make cuts.  If you were an hour into your timeline and realized you had made a mistake in the first few minutes of the video you would either have to start all over again or go down a generation; that is, make a copy of the existing show which meant a loss in quality, like making a photocopy of a photocopy.  Ah, those were the days!  When editing systems became computer-based and nonlinear, Patty jumped in with both feet and never looked back.

She has edited everything from Candids videos, aka “Happy Face Videos” which have required her to keep vampire’s hours on-site at various hotels at conventions of all stripes, to documentaries, commercials, music videos, testimonials and corporate training videos.
