Video Editing is for Everyone

“My wedding was shot in 1964 in a dark church. Can you make it lighter?”
“My dad liked big band music. Can you put music behind my video of him?”
“My son scored a winning goal. Can you make it in slow motion?”
We get frequent calls from customers with questions like these, and we’re happy to say that editing video is a specialty. Editing is simply making the videos you shot even better.
If you like your videos you’ll love what editing can do:

Editing allows you to tell a story. People are drawn to stories. When you edit you are creating something more interesting than just random video clips.
Editing sustains interest. It will make your videos concise and have a point. For example, "Our Family at the Lake" - showing quick shots of your family on the beach complete with beach music is much more enjoyable than hours of raw video footage.
Editing is fun and creative. It's a way for you to put your spin and creativity on something you love.

You've probably watched enough television and movies in your life to know what editing techniques are effective even if you don't know what they're called. Here are just a few simple editing techniques that can make your videos even better:

  • Transitions - Have you ever seen a photo montage with images that fade out or fade in? Or a video that slowly goes to black at the end? Those are simple transitions you can put on your video.
  • Color correction - Is your wedding dress more blue than white? Color correction is an easy way to address many issues like this.
  • Titles - Does your daughter have a sports video that needs vital information like her position, number, weight, GPA, etc. on it? Does your son want composers' names on his musical recital video? Putting titles in your videos is no sweat.
  • Music - Nothing is more effective than appropriate music on your videos.
  • Voiceover - Have you ever seen a 50th wedding anniversary photo keepsake with the husband reading a poem he wrote while they were courting? We have. Not a dry eye in the house.
  • Effects - Yes, special effects like slow motion, fast motion, or blur are simple these days with our professional editing capabilities.

When it comes to editing we say: Whatever you can imagine we can most likely achieve. When you bring your editing project to us here's a very basic map:
Removing what you don't want
It may sound simple but the first step is just getting rid of video that's not essential to your story.
Finding and choosing what you do want
This is the beginning of the fun - finding the filet mignon of your project.
Telling a story
This is the most crucial part of your editing and the reason you're doing it. And we're here to help you every step of the way.
Adding the "cool" stuff
This is the icing on the cake. Music, effects, titles, etc. are fun and put the finishing touch on.

HVS Top Five Family Halloween Movies

Sure, it’s easy to find slashing, gory, hands-over-your-eyes movies for Halloween, but we’re family friendly! Here are a few Halloween movies that are fun for the season, but won’t keep the kids awake all night. 

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown - Because every generation needs to experience Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, and all the gang for every holiday. 

Ernest Scared Stupid - Ernest is always just silly fun. This time he accidentally sets loose trolls, on Halloween, who turn children into wooden dolls. Now he must save his town. 
The Addams Family - Because, like Charlie Brown, every generation needs to experience Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, and all the gang – and Halloween is the perfect occasion. 
Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit - If your kids have never experienced the Claymation inventor Wallace and his dog Gromit they’ll love this one. They rescue a village plagued by a mutant rabbit and save the annual vegetable competition. 
The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad – A 1949 adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, it’s a Walt Disney classic that every kid should see.
