Transparent Preliminary Discussions
Each project is begun by holding preliminary discussions with each client. This helps Video Caddy's team to build an in-depth understanding of the client's vision and requirements.
The editorial development process begins with the management of the raw media into the correct order. The editing process involves techniques to reliably select the best shots, smooth cuts and transitions, cropping, trimming, and arranging raw media into the desired sequence. Another important consideration is continuity, ensuring the clarity and consistency that is expected from top-flight specialists in post-production services.
The technical development process is the next step of the process and involves the correction of unwanted or unintentional content. The final product can be perfected by removing or shortening scenes that drag or detract from the story, correcting serious errors and inserting retakes. The overall duration of the clips is adjusted, audio is corrected, and additional graphic elements or special effects are designed and added. Video Caddy also offers more comprehensive advanced options including CGI, sound manipulation, Foley, ADR, scoring, and final mixing of the audio bundle using the best equipment and software.
Continuous Opportunities for Client Review
Video Caddy believes that communication is key, and as such their team remains in contact with each client throughout the lifecycle of the project to ensure that the client's vision matches team's direction. The client's involvement at each stage of the fully transparent process leads to shorter turnaround times, and greater accuracy.
Finishing and Mastering
In the final stages of the project, once the storyline has been edited and the content is finalized, the final production values are added, including quality enhancement and adjusting for the platform the final product is intended for.
The next step is mastering, which is the process of structuring the entire final package for delivery. Mastering is a tricky process with unexpected challenges. As a result, the final package could include a number of complex variables such as multiple subtitle packages, commentaries, and multiple other possible additions the client may require. Format conversions, subtitling, audio options, and captioning may all be utilized to reach as broad an audience as possible.
Output and Delivery
Once the project has been successfully completed, delivery of the final outputs takes place. The creation of the end product in the form of playable media is handed off to the client and the audience. Outputs can vary from the rendering of DPX images for film printing, outputting high-quality tape formats, DVD development, and web playback optimization.
