Q: What is video production?
A: Video production is the process of creating video by capturing moving images (videography), and creating combinations and reductions of parts of this video in live production and post-production (video editing). It is equivalent of filmmaking, but with images recorded digitally instead of on film stock.

Q. Can we shoot our own footage and have you edit the footage?
A. Yes, let’s talk about it. If the footage was produced professionally and is high quality, we can help you. Let us take a look at the footage then we can let you know if we can make it work for you. Footage that is shot professionally would be fine. Some clients have found they get more professional quality video outcomes if they have us re-shoot their footage. Not even the most talented and experienced pros can take video that wasn’t shot well and make it look great.
Q. If we want to hire LEDUC Entertainment, how should we go about it?
A. Let’s get together so we can talk about what you have in mind. We’ll ask some questions to gain a better understanding of what you’d like to accomplish. Then we’ll create a proposal for you in writing that outlines the process and the cost. We’d like to know the answers to these questions, so you may want to discuss them with the people at your company who’ll be involved in the process. Then call us or email us! Here are some questions we’ll ask you.
• Where will the video be shown? (On your website, at an event, on television, etc.)
• How long would you like it to be?
• What would you like the video to accomplish? (What do you want the viewers to do or think once they have watched the video?)
