Editing & Grading 4K: Windows or Mac

I’ve been an Apple fan since I bought my first iMac back in 2005. I didn’t have the money for it but at that point I didn’t care because I’d had enough of Windows. About 5 weeks previous our latest short film was due to be shown privately in a local cinema and of course, my PC decided to stop working and wipe …

2015

I thought I would round up 2015 with a little blog post on what we’ve been up to. It’s been a busy year. To the point where I’ve not written as much as I’d should have. Let me start at the end. I was asked to go to St. Kilda to make a short video. However, this wasn’t the eventful …

Digital Filmmaker

If I am asked what I do for a living it always makes me cringe replying with ‘videographer’ or ‘we make videos’ because it reminds me of working with that awful technology; videotape. But, it’s what people know! Video was terrible to work with.  I’ve shot videos (see, I’m using that word again!) on, SVHS, Digital8 and MiniDV tapes and …

Skye Wedding Videos

We’ve been very lucky to be based on the Isle of Skye, UK since 2011. However, since moving here, we’ve focused solely on creating websites and explainer videos for our customers.

The Internet allows us to work at home on the Isle of Skye. Which is our dream. However, ensuring that our business survives is always at the forefront my mind. Every month we take on …

What Makes Us Different?

There has been a lot of competition in the explainer video market so we’ve have to write quite a few proposals to win projects. This is something we rarely do, but it’s given us the chance to really look at ourselves and work out what actually does make us different from all the other explainer video companies. We are one …

Zopim

I’ve written quite a few blogs lately about the software we use that helps us run our business. Like Kashflow and Mavenlink. However, these products don’t really help us make any sales. They simply make our lives much, much easier. Which of course, I’m all for. However, today I’m going to talk you through Zopim. Our Live Chat tool. We first heard of …

Kashflow Payment

Running a small business has many challenges. It’s not just all about finding the work either. It’s about managing everything so that you have time to actually do the work you have been hired to do. If I take away all of my paid work, I spend my days; writing articles like this, scheduling our many, many projects to ensure …
