Paul Stowe is a freelance editor who has been editing for over 30 years, 20 of those on Avid. The Remote Video Editing service is one that he has been offering for a number of years, for a few clients.
Paul says: "I find it much easier working on my own. A lot of the process takes place in my head before it goes onto the timeline, and that requires concentration and space to try things out."
With the increasing speed of the internet files can be shared quickly between locations, so clients all over the world can give feedback at various stages of the edit. When completed, the final output files are uploaded to an FTP site, so they can be downloaded anywhere around the globe.
Projects can be charged by the hour, the day or with a fixed price. By keeping overheads to a minimum we can offer very competitive rates.
This is a really cost effective way to post produce your project.
