The Importance Of Post Production Editing

The Importance Of Post Production Editing

When it comes to making bespoke videos, editing is quite rightly an essential factor. Post production editing sets the scene and allows the clips to come together to make an interesting story. In many cases a script is given to one of our editors on how the client would like the video to be produced, and it is then in the editors hands to create a video that sets the scene and flows, whilst taking into account the requirements of the project.

Net Neutrality - What is it and will it affect me?

You may have seen the uproar in the news regarding Net Neutrality in the USA. Ajit Pai, an American attorney and chairman of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), proposed that Net Neutrality should be scrapped due to bigger websites taking up more bandwidth than they should have.
