Editing

Minimum Charge £25.00

Price is £25.00 per half hour or part thereof. The price is calculated by the time an editor works on your production.

Instructions on compiling an edit list for our editor to work on:

To have your camcorder tape, videotape or disc edited we need to be supplied with an edit list. To build an edit list, insert your tape into your machine, rewind it to the beginning and reset the time counter to 00.00.00. Take an A4 piece of paper draw a line down the centre and write the headings ‘Start’ on the left-hand side of the line and ‘Stop’ on the right. Play your tape/disc to the point that you want the recording to start and make a note of the counter reading along with a brief description on the left-hand side of the A4 sheet of paper. Then play your tape/disc to the point that you want the recording to stop and make a note of the counter reading along with a brief description on the right-hand side of the A4 sheet of paper. E.G. Start 00:01:17. Begin just before young boy wearing red jumper enters the screen from the left. – Stop 00:11:47. Stop after little girl with the blue dress jumps off steps, etc. Remember to inform us of the type of media that the final file should be output to, DVD or USB.

Video and Audio Tape Repair

Video and Audio cassette repairs can take various forms from a snapped tape to a broken casing. Even mouldy tapes can often be transferred successfully so it is worth submitting them. If in the unlikely event we cannot repair a tape there is no charge.

Tape repair – £15.00 each

Note:  We do not recommend the use of a spliced tape as it can cause damage to your machine. It is advisable to have your tape transferred as well as repaired.
