Tech Talk

I pride myself on my flexibility and on offering a tremendous value for every dollar spent. Whether you are a business owner in need of promo materials, a musician looking for a music video or concert coverage, a non-profit organization looking to document your ongoing project, or a couple in love looking for a perfect wedding film or photo album, I will work with you to produce the best video for your budget. I have everything to take your project from script to screen, artfully lit, beautifully shot in full HD (and even in 3D!) precisely edited, and released to your audience on BluRay or via the Internet. Below you will find my rates and list of services I can offer. Contact me with more information about your project, and will be able to provide you an estimate of the total cost based on your requirements.
