Industrial Color motion editing suite
Many professional still photographers are being asked to shoot HD video by existing and potential clients these days. If you’re one of them, should you invest heavily in new HD SLRs, audio and video lighting systems, video editing and post-processing software, and specialized training in order to dazzle high-end clients with your video-production capabilities? A wiser decision would be to let the experts at Industrial Color help you turn your creative vision into reality by utilizing their advanced video capture and post production services, as well as their experience in all aspects of video production and delivery.
