Video Editor

"The film is made in the editing room. The shooting of the film is about shopping, almost. It's like going to get all the ingredients together, and you've got to make sure before you leave the store that you got all the ingredients. And then you take those ingredients, and you can make a good cake - or not."
- Philip Seymour Hoffman

Our Video Editing Services

ON-SITE EDITING

Most of AZ Pod Studio's expertise in on-site editing has been honed through our work with conventions and trade shows. However, in recent years, we've expanded our portfolio to include music festivals and other multi-day events. When needed, we are fully competent to film, edit, and master content in a single day. To pull this off successfully, we ensure that all necessary media assets like logos, graphics, and music are selected and collected well in advance. We also emphasize crafting a comprehensive workflow plan beforehand to facilitate the one-day delivery of the final product.

Our editing suites are powered by Mac and PC platforms, operating on Adobe Creative Cloud. This allows our editors to seamlessly toggle between Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and other Adobe programs. We typically carry a pair of hard drives for every production to back up your footage immediately. AZ Pod Studio generally assigns an expert editor to your project, but for busier workflows, the addition of a Digital Image Technician (DIT) may be needed.

As another 'same day' solution, AZ Pod Studio can offer live editing. This is particularly useful when you're using multiple cameras and want to reduce post-shoot editing time. To make this happen, we use one of our BlackMagic ATEM Switchers to churn out a polished final video. This is the same system we employ for live streaming. Furthermore, we record the ISOs from each camera, so if any tweaks are required before mastering, a revised edit of the switched final cut can be prepared in just a few minutes.

IN-STUDIO EDITING

Our cutting-edge, in-studio video editing services cater to diverse projects, including documentaries, commercials, corporate videos, social media content, music videos, and much more.

As you step into our high-tech Phoenix Video Editing suite, you'll encounter a space with creativity, technology, and professional expertise. Our seasoned editors work diligently with advanced editing tools and software, employing their profound understanding of pacing, storytelling, color grading, and sound design to create incredible videos that captivate audiences and effectively convey your message.

At AZ Pod Studio, we value collaboration and open communication. We work closely with our clients, considering your unique vision, feedback, and objectives throughout the editing process. Whether you're looking for a fast-paced, energetic cut or a slow, thought-provoking edit, our team is equipped to deliver.

Our Phoenix Video Editing suite isn't just about making cuts and tweaks; it's where your content comes alive. We stitch together scenes seamlessly, enhance color and sound, create engaging transitions, and add special effects where necessary. And with our cloud-based collaborative platforms, you can review and provide feedback on your video wherever you are.

With AZ Pod Studio's in-studio video editing, you're not just getting a video - you're receiving a finely-crafted, custom visual experience that resonates with your audience and elevates your brand. Dive into the journey of creating unforgettable videos with us today!

"A film is made three times: first when writing, second when shooting, and third when editing."
- Paul Hirsch

Video Editing - Post Production

At AZ Pod Studio, we consider video editing a single chapter in the comprehensive book of Post-Production services we provide. A common misperception is that 'cut' and 'post' are identical, but in reality, post-production paints a much broader canvas than just video and sound editing. It's an artistic blend of audio harmonizing, original music creation, color refining, image grading, motion graphics, and even the world of 2D and 3D animation and CGI. And of course, it wraps up with the final mastering and dispatch of your video in the format that suits you best.

While a significant chunk of our video editing and post-production endeavors are tied to the projects we manage from scratch, our versatile editors are capable of jumping onboard at any point in your production journey. We're ready to roll if you need us to handle editing, mastering, or anything in between.

It's worth mentioning that our post-production squad isn't just reserved for the technical stuff. They're equipped to join your brainstorming sessions and if required, can step in at the eleventh hour to ensure your project crosses the finish line.

Our Area's of Expertise

HD & UHD (4K) EDITING: AZ Pod Studio Phoenix Editing has been at the forefront of producing high-resolution videos in 4K Ultra HD (UHD) for nearly a decade. Our 4K videos offer more vibrant colors and allow us to crop into an image without losing resolution. Nowadays, we're delivering more videos in 4K than ever before. As technology keeps evolving, we're also increasingly working with 6K, ensuring that our image quality keeps pace with the advances.

HIGH-DYNAMIC-RANGE (HDR): As humans, our eyes and brain have evolved to perceive a broad range of light levels, from bright sunlight to deep shadows. We aim to mirror this adaptability with High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI), a video technique replicating the natural luminosity range we see. AZ Pod Studio Phoenix Editing aims to capture and display a range of luminance that mirrors what we experience through our vision.

2D/3D ANIMATION: Whether you're looking for a cartoon episode or a short animated clip, our capabilities extend to creating 2D and 3D animations. We have a team of editors specializing in this intricate work, considering that animation requires time, dedication, and expertise in various software programs.

WHITEBOARD ANIMATION: Hand-drawn illustrations, captured live on camera or brought to life through 2D animation, can effectively communicate complex concepts visually. We have an in-house illustrator at AZ Pod Studio Phoenix Editing, skilled in telling stories through a sequence of engaging sketches.

Our Video Editing Process

How long does it take to make a video from beginning to end? Well, that can differ quite a bit. It all hangs on things like how long the video is, how intricate the shots are, and your budget.

Typically, you're looking at about 2-3 weeks after we've finished filming to get your first look at the rough cut. With us here at AZ Pod Studio, we're often juggling multiple projects simultaneously, so our editors and animators have some homework to do before they can dive into the editing.

Stuff like making sure the script is good to go, getting any voiceovers done, picking out the music, and whipping up any graphics or animations that need to be sorted out before the editing starts.

And to ensure everyone's on the same page, our post-production supervisor is typically in on the planning calls with the rest of our creative team. That way, our editors are always in the know, keeping things moving smoothly and efficiently.

Video Editing Onboarding

STEP 1) 

ONBOARDING

Dive into an immersive journey with our video editing services, starting with a comprehensive onboarding process. This crucial first step helps us align our services with your vision, ensuring a seamless transition from raw footage to captivating video. We understand that every project is unique, and this understanding drives our initial conversation.

During this dialogue, we explore your specific goals for the project, assess your available budget, and understand the timeframe within which you need the work completed. We delve into the extent of the video footage that requires editing and gain clarity on your end expectations. These insights give us the context to customize our services according to your needs, ensuring that our result meets and exceeds your expectations.

After understanding your project's scope, we estimate the cost and turn-around time. This transparent approach ensures that there are no surprises along the way and that we can work within your budget and timeline constraints to deliver a top-notch product.

Furthermore, to foster effective communication and collaboration, we assign a dedicated point of contact from our team who will be responsible for all queries and updates related to your project. We request that you designate a similar point of contact from your side to streamline our interactions and ensure a smooth, efficient workflow.

The onboarding process is a vital cornerstone of our editing service, setting the tone for the entire project. It's more than just a preliminary conversation; it's the genesis of a creative partnership. Let's transform your vision into a captivating video narrative that resonates with your audience.

Offloading & Backing Up Video Files

STEP 3)

OFFLOADING & BACKING UP

Taking the utmost care of your valued footage, we prioritize its safe storage as we transition to our video editing process's offloading and backup phase. As your raw video data arrives at our advanced post-production hub, we meticulously offload it to ensure flawless extraction and allocation for the editing process.

To ensure the absolute safety of your footage, we implement an extensive backup system on our dedicated server. With a built-in redundancy feature, this system ensures that your data is stored in three secure locations.

 

This comprehensive approach mitigates any risk of data loss, ensuring that your footage is always safeguarded.

Our robust server architecture enables us to store your valuable data across multiple drives. This further enhances the reliability of data storage, reducing any potential risk of data corruption or loss.

Additionally, we utilize long-term cloud storage solutions. This gives us an added layer of data protection while also allowing us to access your footage whenever required.

At AZ Pod Phoenix, our video editing service's offloading and backup phase isn't just a process; it's a commitment to protect and preserve your invaluable footage, setting the stage for exceptional video editing.

STEP 5)

TRANSCRIBING (OPTIONAL)

At AZ Pod Phoenix, we believe that the video editing process should be effective and highly efficient. This is where our transcription services play a pivotal role, especially when dealing with a substantial volume of unscripted interviews in your video content.

Transcribing is a step where we convert the audio content from your footage into written text. This procedure is incredibly beneficial for unscripted interviews, where determining the most impactful content can be quite time-consuming. While our talented editors can accomplish this task, we believe their expertise is best utilized in crafting the narrative and enhancing the visual appeal of your video.

With transcriptions, clients and directors can quickly review the spoken content, identify critical points, discard extraneous information, and select the most compelling excerpts. This saves substantial time in the editing process, streamlines decision-making, and ensures the most critical messages make it into your final video product.

By converting speech into text, our transcribing step also opens the door for enhanced accessibility. The transcriptions can be utilized to add captions or subtitles to your video, making it accessible to a broader audience, including those who are hearing-impaired or speak different languages.

AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing prioritizes your content's potential and strives to deliver the highest quality videos. Our transcribing service forms a crucial part of our commitment to creating videos that look good and convey your story most effectively and efficiently.

Professional Video Editor

STEP 7)

VIDEO EDITING

The editing step is the point where the narrative arc of your video truly begins to take shape. At AZ Pod Video Editing Phoenix, we blend dialogues, additional B-Roll footage, textual elements, and graphics to create a cohesive and compelling visual experience. Once our skilled editors have all the necessary elements, they dive into their craft without interruptions, translating your vision into a tangible reality.

The editing process at AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing is a meticulous orchestration, an intricate dance of arranging and rearranging video components to communicate your message best. The dialogue establishes the narrative thread, the supporting B-Roll adds depth and context, and the textual elements and graphics provide vital information and visual appeal.

Although we occasionally have clients who prefer to be physically present during the editing process, we've found that the most effective means of communication is through Wipster, our preferred video collaboration platform. Wipster offers an intuitive, real-time avenue for feedback and revisions, which keeps the process streamlined and focused.

Every step in our editing process is done with an unwavering commitment to your vision. As your footage evolves through the editing stage, we uphold meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that every second of your video contributes meaningfully to the overall narrative.

 

This is where the magic happens, where your raw content is transformed into a captivating piece of visual storytelling. Trust AZ Pod Phoenix with your editing needs - we'll ensure your message resonates powerfully with your audience.

STEP 9)

AUDIO MIXING & COLORING

Upon finalizing revisions and perfecting the video cuts, it's time for our editors at AZ Pod Phoenix to take the reins and add that final touch of finesse, bringing your vision to life in vivid detail. This stage, commonly known as audio mixing and coloring, is where your video's visual and auditory elements are polished to perfection, culminating in a genuinely captivating final product.

The audio mixing process involves the meticulous fine-tuning of all the music and audio tracks in your video. Our audio engineers blend dialogue, background music, sound effects, and other audio elements to create an immersive sound experience. They manipulate the volume, frequency content, dynamics, and panoramic position to ensure a harmonious sound balance, optimizing every audio detail to enrich your video content.

Simultaneously, the video undergoes a coloring process, a critical aspect that significantly impacts your video's overall mood and appeal. Our coloring artists apply their expert skills to adjust the color grading, re-checking and fine-tuning the color values and contrast to give your video a visually consistent and appealing look. They meticulously manipulate hues, saturation, and lightness to create a visual tone that perfectly aligns with your brand identity and story.

The audio mixing and coloring stage creates a cohesive and immersive viewing experience. It's about ensuring every frame resonates with your brand and message and that every sound echoes with clarity and intention. At AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing, we're committed to delivering this polished, professional quality in every project we handle.

File Delivery

STEP 11)

DELIVERY

After meticulous rounds of editing, refining, and mastering, it's finally time to deliver your professionally edited video. At AZ Pod Phoenix, we've made the delivery process seamless, allowing you to get your high-quality video swiftly and securely.

Primarily, we upload your final video on our collaborative platform, Microsoft. We ensure the option to download is activated, allowing you to access your video in either its original high-resolution format or a more compressed version, depending on your needs.

 

If you want to broadcast your content through cable companies or other broadcast mediums, we're adept at accommodating their specific format and delivery preferences. We understand that each broadcaster might have unique requirements, and we're flexible in delivering your content exactly as they need it. Whether it means uploading directly onto their servers or using services like Dropbox, we have you covered.

The delivery of your video is the exciting culmination of our dedicated video editing service at AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing, marking the moment when your vision, transformed into a compelling visual narrative, is ready to impact your audience.

File Sharing

STEP 2)

FILE SHARING

Initiating the dynamic video editing process, we dive into the pivotal stage of file sharing. We understand the magnitude of your raw footage and the delicate essence of your brand. Thus, we ensure an efficient, secure, and seamless transfer of all your digital assets.

We use robust and trusted cloud services such as Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, and Box to facilitate this process. This approach not only ensures easy accessibility but also safeguards your data with high-end encryption standards. The seamless file sharing and uploading process allow us to get to work swiftly, cutting down any needless waiting time.

Along with your raw footage, we invite you to share your unique branding elements. This includes your color palette, logos, fonts, and detailed brand guidelines.

 

These integral components allow us to accurately understand and reflect your brand's personality and ethos throughout the edited video. It ensures that your brand's identity remains consistent and recognizable, significantly enhancing your audience's engagement and recall.

For videos that involve scripts, we request those as well. Scripts help us effectively align the visuals with the spoken word, ensuring a harmonious and engaging flow of your video narrative.

The file-sharing stage of our video editing service is streamlined and organized, setting the foundation for a meticulous editing process. It allows us to collectively transform your raw footage into a compelling story that resonates with your brand and captivates your audience.

Video Ingesting & Transcoding

STEP 4)

INGESTING & TRANSCODING

Following the offloading and backup phase, our video editing service progresses to the ingesting and transcoding step. This crucial phase ensures seamless integration of your footage into our sophisticated editing workflow.

As we often work with footage sourced from various camera types and assorted codecs, this stage is vital in standardizing the data for editing. Here, we employ an advanced transcoding technique, transforming all incoming data into a consistent DNx codec proxy format compatible with all our editing stations. This process aids in facilitating a smooth, efficient editing procedure, irrespective of the source of the original footage.

A DNx codec proxy creates a more miniature, manageable copy of your original footage. While this reduced resolution and bit-rate copy retains all the essential visual elements, it demands less computational power, allowing our editing programs to operate at higher speeds. This, in turn, enables our skilled editors to focus on the creative aspects of the editing process, delivering a superior final product faster and more efficiently.

However, our commitment to maintaining the highest quality means we never compromise the integrity of your original footage. Before we finalize and master the edited video, we reconnect the proxy copies to the original high-resolution footage. This ensures that every detail captured in the original recording translates to the final product in its most original, highest-quality form.

With AZ Pod Video Editing Phoenix, the ingesting and transcoding phase is more than a technical process. It's a strategic step designed to optimize the editing procedure while preserving the original quality of your footage, facilitating the creation of a truly fantastic video.

STEP 6)

SELECTING MUSIC

Music plays a profoundly significant role in the video editing process at AZ Pod Phoenix, providing an emotional underpinning that can enhance the impact of your content. Whether it's an animated music video or a compelling testimonial, the music selection step is crucial in setting the mood and tone of your video project.

For videos like music videos or commercials that are meticulously cut to music, we ensure that the music is pre-selected before we begin editing. This precision is vital as certain cuts need to align with specific beats, riffs, and song bridges. Altering the music track after these cuts have been made often necessitates a complete re-edit, a task we diligently avoid to respect your time and budget.

We have more flexibility for videos that are not explicitly cut to the rhythm, such as testimonial videos. In these cases, we can add or alter the music track after editing. However, we often employ a temporary music track during editing to bring the project to life and guide the mood.

Remember, even when the music is subtly mixed in the background, it sets the emotional stage for your content. The words spoken in your video may inform the viewers, but the musical score beneath those words guides their feelings and reactions. Our music selection step is designed to synergize with your message, amplifying its resonance with your audience.

Video Review & Revision

STEP 8)

REVIEW & REVISION

The review and revision step is integral to our video editing process at AZ Pod Phoenix. Upon completion of the initial rough cut, it is uploaded to Microsoft's robust platform for our client's review. We facilitate this by providing you with a private link sent directly to your email, which allows you to watch your video online at your convenience.

This platform is uniquely designed to offer a highly interactive review experience. You can pause, rewind, or advance the video at any point and make comments directly on the screen and timeline. Your remark provides valuable guidance to our post-production team, who will read and respond to your feedback, ensuring your vision is flawlessly translated onto the screen.

At AZ Video Editing Phoenix, we are committed to openness and fluid communication with our clients. We keep you involved in the process, marking off completed comments and always ready to incorporate your fresh insights. With each iteration, we draw closer to achieving the final product that accurately reflects your objectives and exceeds your expectations.

For every subsequent version of your video, a new, clean Microsoft link, free of initial markup, will be dispatched to you. This way, each review session is focused solely on the current version, keeping the process clean and streamlined. At AZ Pod Phoenix, your feedback is our guidepost as we refine your raw footage into a mesmerizing visual narrative.

Audio Mastering

STEP 10)

MASTERING

Once the visual color grading and audio mixing processes have been completed, it's time for the final mastering step of our video editing service at AZ Pod Phoenix. In this phase, we breathe life into your story, transforming it from a project into a polished, ready-to-share masterpiece.

During mastering, we take the smaller proxy files used during the editing process and relink them back to the original, high-resolution footage. This ensures the highest possible quality and sharpness for your final video, bringing out every minute detail for your audience to appreciate.

Next, we export your video into the appropriate format to suit your distribution channels. Our most frequently used formats include H.264 1080 MP4 and H.265 4k MP4. These widely accepted standards ensure your video maintains its visual and auditory excellence across multiple platforms, be it on social media, websites, television, or at live events.

Mastering is the final, critical step that cements our meticulous work throughout the video editing. At AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing, we deliver a masterfully crafted video that meets and exceeds your expectations, ensuring your message is conveyed powerfully and effectively to your audience.

File Backup Storage

STEP 12)

STORAGE

Once your final video masterpiece is crafted, the crucial secure storage process follows. At AZ Pod Phoenix, we're deeply committed to preserving your valuable project files, ensuring they are safely tucked away for future reference or revisions.

The completed masters, raw files, and project documents are carefully saved and backed up onto our long-term storage system. This robust storage solution guarantees the preservation of your project in its entirety, from the raw footage to the polished end product.

Importantly, we respect the ebb and flow of your business needs. We understand that you might require changes or updates to your video down the line or perhaps a refresh of the content in line with new developments. Therefore, even if a project goes inactive for a period, we maintain its data securely within our storage system. Should you wish to revive the project or make revisions at any point, rest assured that we can promptly reload the necessary files and re-ignite the editing process.

With AZ Pod Phoenix Video Editing, your video assets are perfectly edited and stored with utmost care and professionalism, ready for future requirements."
