FAQ

It often seems that there are more questions than answers in the video world! Here are some FAQ's that we often come across. If you have a question that isn't answered here, please feel free to contact us at info@rnlvideo.com !


How much does a video production cost?

What type of equipment do you use?

"Uncle John" Videotaped our wedding for us using his camcorder. Will you edit it for us?

What geographic area do you cover?

I've heard about compatibility problems with DVD recordable disks. What's the story?

If this is a "part time" business, what do you do full time?


How much does a video production cost?

It depends! (Seriously!). There are too many unique variables in any production to give a firm price here. Pricing a job for a client requires us to fully understand your situation and expectations and then we can provide you with options. There is a "rate sheet" in these pages that will give you some idea of how much our time costs.

What type of equipment do you use?

For those of you that are technically minded, our primary equipment consists of - A Sony VX-2000 digital camera - Bogen Manfrotto tripod - Seinheisser wireless microphone system - Lowel lights - Sony VegasPro 8 professional editing and DVD authoring software - Adobe After Effects - Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended - Adobe Illustrator - Adobe Flash CS3 - Canon Digital Rebel 6MP still camera - and too many other tools to list here. If a particular job requires specialized tools, we can rent them. If a job is out of our league, we'll tell you (and point you to an alternative!).

"Uncle John" Videotaped our wedding for us using his camcorder. Will you edit it for us?

Let us look at it first. We have successfully edited wedding videos shot by well meaning friends and relatives, but this is often a most difficult task! Depending upon the quality of the video and your expectations, we may be able to help. However, you need to know up front that a high quality video starts with top notch camera work. If you get sea sick looking at the video, chances are we won't be able to help.

What geographic area do you cover?

We are based in Las Vegas, so our typical area of service is Southern Nevada. Travel outside of this area is a possibility, so let's discuss your situation. If you need us on location in another state for a week, we are probably not your best option. However, if your timing is flexible there is a good chance we can schedule it in. Let's talk - e-mail us at info@rnlvideo.com

I've heard about compatibility problems with DVD recordable disks. What's the story?

DVD recordable disks (DVD-R, DVD+R, etc) are a little different from the DVDs you buy or rent at the store. Older "set top DVD players" (the kind that you have hooked up to your TV) sometimes have difficulty with recordable DVDs. The good news is that most newer set top DVD players are very compatible with recordable DVDs. It is rare to find any compatibility issues with the DVD players in computers. If you are in doubt about your player, take a minute to check out www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers. There are thousands of compatibility reports on this site and you should know very quickly what to expect. If your player is not compatible with recordable DVDs, you can now buy a fully compatible player for under $50.

If this is a "part time" business, what do you do full time?

Ha! Easy one - I work. Seriously, though, I keep these two worlds separate. Let's just say that I am an executive with a Fortune 50 company and am lucky enough to be based in Las Vegas (as opposed to the cold, cold north tundra where my company is based).
