As a video post production company in NYC Above All edits, color corrects and prepares video files for distribution. The focus is on storytelling, always keeping in mind the desired message, audience and platform where the videos will be watched.
Our aim is to deliver videos that are professional and effective.
As we work to get projects finished the client is always kept updated through the use of “Mediasilo”, which can be accessed directly from our site. There, the client can review and make annotations on the footage and draft edits. Above all will work with you until you are completely satisfied with the result.
Alternately, the client can come to our offices or we can go to their’s so as to work together during the editing process over pizza, and enjoy the collaboration. When we need to record voice-overs we set up a quiet environment with monitors and microphones.
“Mauricio is always a pleasure to work with. You can rely on him to get videos and edits done on time and looking great. I’d recommend him to work on any video project.” Marianne Magno (Fitness Magazine)
Above all works on Apple computers using legally licensed up to date software and hardware. Until recently editing was done on Final Cut Pro but now we are in the process of adapting our workflow to Avid and Premiere. For graphics After Effects, Photoshop and Motion are used. For effects, the above-mentioned softwares are used together with plugins from Boris FX (Continuum Complete 7), Digieffects (Delirium), Noise Industries (Fx Factory), Red Giant (Magic Bullet Suite, Trapcode Suite, and Keying Suite), and many more. For color correction we had been using Apple’s Color but more recently it’s been DaVinci Resolve. For encoding, Sorenson’s Squeeze, Telestream’s Episode, Apple’s Compressor are our choices and to speed up processing time we like to use Matrox Max.
When Above All cannot produce all the necessary components that make the video we select micro stock resources online. For stock photos, illustrations, video footage, sound effects and music we like using fotolia.com, stockphoto.com, pond5.com, revostock.com, audiomicro.com, and you license.com
