Many of us have videotapes or DVD of our loved ones just sitting around. And when it comes time to show them to your family and friends,after a while, you may find your audience yawning, ready to leave. Just another home video. Swan Video will change that reaction.

Send us your best material so we can create a wonderful video presentation designed to make your family smile. You may be thinking your videos are not very interesting. Please don't toss them out or let them sit in a desk somewhere. Bring your video to life with all the professionalism you've seen at the movies. Let us tell a story, create entertainment and sentiment, happy times, memories to last forever.

We edit your videos to reflect your own values. Unfortunately there are many being edited that don't get a second look. Don't let anyone simply create a box filled with moving pictures. We begin with communicating, in detail about what you want to achieve. Once that's settled, or even before, we'll need to examine your video and photos, then get to editing with a beginning, middle, and ending.

We edit your video in one of three different decision methods:
  1. You tell us how to edit your video.
  2. (Or) You give us basic instructions on the phone or by email, and we take it from there.
  3. (Or) Swan Video makes all decisions, edit, and finalizes based on media files you give us.
In (3) above and by default, without input from you, we make all the decisions, based on video, photos, music, you may supply. We create the title of the video, select graphics, music, and overall theme, and editing decisions.
In (2), you give us some basic idea of what you want, a title, scene selections, general ideas, and we handle the rest of the production and video editing.
In (1), you give us a detailed overview of how you would like us to edit your video. You can do this by email or on by telephone. You approve a final written decision and we begin to edit your video.
How Long Will It Take
Once you've paid for the #qService.title# service and had an opportunity to give your input, it generally takes between 2 to 3 days to complete your video, and ready for you to pickup. More detailed stories take longer. We'll have a better idea once we see the video we will be editing.
