Get Good. Get Great. Get Rad.
Maybe you’ve already tried filming yourself on camera – do you watch what you’ve produced and cringe a little? Or, perhaps you’ve been thinking about getting on camera but the whole setup and filming process has you totally bamboozled.
Producing video is hard work, but I can help you make this whole process so much easier. And not only that, with my coaching you’ll get better results on camera.
It’s my belief that everyone can be good on camera, and that your best performance is hiding away under your own fears, doubts, and inhibitions. And with my help, you’ll find it!
What Does a Video Coaching Session Look Like?
There’s no one-size-fits-all process, as everyone is different. But for the most part a coaching session with me will look something like this:
We’ll go over the plan for the day – what you want to get out of it, what content you want captured, and what your overall goals are
I’ll assess the space that we have to work with, and set up my cameras, lights, and microphones to produce the best image and sound we can. If we have multiple angles we can work with, even better!
We’ll pick a video to start you off with and we’ll just get going. Usually clients choose an ‘easy’ video to begin with, and this gives you a chance to warm to the camera and get comfortable.
Don’t fear – this isn’t a drill seargant grilling, and I’ll do my best to make sure there aren’t tears! During filming I’ll observe your performance and try to find ways to bring out the best in you, with critiques and constructive, practical advice for you to put into place. Acting as your director, putting myself into the eyes and ears of your viewers and your customers, I’ll advise on the best way to say what you’re trying to communicate. We’ll keep the camera rolling, and we’ll keep going until you nail your messaging.
This isn’t about making it harder for you, but helping you get over your performance roadblocks and work through any clunkiness.
The Magic Happens*
(*Not actual magic – sorry!) With my guidance you’ll get through your video production objectives, and it’s my promise that I’ll help you up your video game. Even the best people on camera can improve, and this isn’t about being ‘broadcast quality’. What it is about is getting the best out of you that we on the day.
How much does video editing cost?
The costs of working with a video editor can ramp up pretty quickly. Like a lot of design and editing work, the longer something takes, the more it will cost. But what if you want to plan out a series? How do you plan and budget your project?
I wanted to create a package that is easy to understand and scale for content creators, so you can go into working together knowing how much everything will cost on a weekly or monthly basis, or for the length of your project.
Introducing: Rad Video Edit Credits
Rad edit credits are fairly simple: one credit = one completed video edit.
However, I need to make something really clear – that doesn’t mean aspiring filmmakers can send their feature-length masterpieces to me in exchange for a credit. That would be INSANE!
I work with content marketers who generally produce:
- TALKING HEAD EXPLAINER VIDEOS:
Face-to-camera pieces of content that discuss questions, problems, ideas (or anything relating to your product or service)
- VIDEO COURSE LESSONS:
Again, these are generally face-to-camera videos, walking students through a particular lesson. These might include accompanying slides, additional video content or screenshots.
Like blogs, but on video. A vlog is generally more of a personal video – it might not have a specific marketing message addressing customers’ problems, but gives people an insight into the life of you as a person
THE NOT SO SMALL PRINT
I have a couple of important notes around the criteria that your content needs to match in order to qualify for edit credits. These are designed to keep the process as slick as possible for both of us.
VIDEO LENGTH: The maximum length of the unedited footage must be under 20 minutes, and the finished edit length must be under 15 minutes.
NUMBER OF FILES: It might take you 27 attempts to get the perfect take, but I will accept no more than 10 separate video files, and 10 accompanying media files (e.g. audio, images, slides etc.). It’s no help to either of us to have to review content that you know won’t make it into the final edit.
EDITING REQUIRED: Your videos should need no more than cutting out what I call ‘fluff’ (umms, ahhs, extra long pauses or those moments when you look away from the camera to have a think to yourself), and polishing up your performance.
If your project falls outside of these parameters – for example, you need something cut to be in-sync with music, or you require lots of complex graphics, I can sometimes make allowances, but these will be priced on a case-by-case basis. If you’re unsure about anything, the best thing to do is to book a call with me to discuss your editing requirements.
What If I Need More Credits?
For clients who purchase an initial 4 or 8 credit package, additional credits can be purchased in blocks of 4 thereafter for £260 +VAT (£65 +VAT per credit).
