Exclusively for people on this site, I will edit your footage to make it look 'better'.

I have a few tricks up my sleeve to make your videos stand out.

Just submit your video, and I'll do the rest.

-

In my latest video, it looks as if someone else is filming me, but nobody is actually there! This effect wasn't intentional, it's just a panning of a larger image. My camera was resting against my trailer, lengthwise for 16:9 footage.

ALWAYS FILM LENGTHWISE!!!

However, I could make it look EXACTLY as if someone was holding your camera with subtle breathing movements that look life like, yet retain quality of what you've been filming.

This effect ads some depth to your scenes, and makes your video more fun to watch!

-

Depending on what you film with, the footage may appear too 'lit up' because the gama levels on your camera have been set too high (some cameras don't have the option to lower them). - it's very difficult to correct the bad footage to make it look like a lush green environment (lifelike), so instead I can add something a little different, something that adds some detail into your footage by balancing the colors more.

-

Also, I am slowly perfecting the art of sound - as of now I can remove background noise from your footage, and optimize it for your video.

My advice, don't shout. It's easier to edit quieter sounds than louder ones.

and more...

I recommend for you to host your video on your website, so that I can download it. To make the file smaller, I recommend using jzip (http://lp.jzip.com/?sysid=102&appid=100&gclid=CKvfoYOcr7MCFQyk4AodQmcAfw) or any other zipping program.

I'm thinking of doing a new short clip on my buddy. I'll let you know when I have done it.

Thanks!

That would be awesome!


Also, don't be afraid to film as many takes as you want.

In all of my videos, I've said every sentence at least 1000 times until I chose the best one. In every video where I speak, my face is probably more red than it should be due to how angry I get when I screw up a sentence. Lots of swearing on my part.

In my last video, I took the same shot of me talking 12 times because I couldn't say "we're going to give you" without it sounding like:

- We're gonnagive you
- wierginna give you
- rrrr going to give you
-WE ARE... GOING TO GIVE YOU
- WE ARE GOING TO F##KING GIVE YOU

I find I have a very difficult time pronouncing words clearly, scripts are like tongue twisters for me. However, if I speak slowly and tilt my head up just a bit, the words come out best.

-

Also, if your film has too much 'light' in it. Meaning, the sky for example has too much glare... You can lower the 'exposure' on your camera (if it has the option).

Videos taken may also look a little odd, so setting your white balance would be the best thing for you to do!

There was no editing done, this is just a camera setting :)

Could you also take some generic video of you performing different services that you could then edit in a logo of another company if they wanted to hire your services to make them a commercial, but didn't want to film anything themselves?

Maybe you could even edit in a couple of pictures they send you too?

It's in interesting idea, but it sounds a little complex.

I personally wouldn't want someone else, using their equipment that I don't have (or like) for a video advert - but that's just me and I'm stubborn. I could see it working somehow for some people. Worth a shot.

I could make a generic video like this;

and put another companies logo on it, but I feel like I should charge at least $5.00. It will help me with future film projects, which can in return provide you guys with better entertainment lmao.

As for submitting pictures, yes! That is a can-do!
