FAQs

How much of an investment can I expect?

It really depends on many factors such as editing features, turnaround time, number of revisions, size of the editing job, etc. I'll need to discuss the details of the project in order to give a proper estimate. I do offer payment plan options as well.

How does the retainer model work?

In a nutshell, we agree on a specified number of hours for the month, the retainer is paid upfront, and I work and log those hours. You will send me video editing projects each week and I send the edited video files back to you. At the end of the month any leftover hours will be paid back to you or rolled over to the next month. I will stop work and notify you if I am close to maxing out hours for the month so there are no surprises.

​What is the process for getting a quote?

The best place to start is by booking a free discovery call so we can chat about the details of your project and whether we'd be a good fit to work together. You can also email me a project brief telling me about your needs and I'd be happy to provide an estimate.

Do you only work with dietitians?

Nope! I've handled editing projects for with real-estate agents, travel agents, actors, actresses, comedians, and large institutions.

What do you use to edit?

I edit primarily in Final Cut Pro on an iMac.

What is your retainer rate?

$75/hour.
