Using the latest Avid & Final Cut Pro edit suites

It's only when we go into post production that all the visual ideas become reality. We bring all the raw footage together adding animation, graphics, special fx, sound and various other visual enhancement techniques such as 'grading' to tailor the programme to your exact requirements and give you the best possible quality production.

During the editing stages we work very closely with the client supplying proof copies on dvd at various stages of the edit to ensure that everything is coming together to your satisfaction.
