Q: Is Lightning Video Editors not overcharging a bit too much?
A: Actually Lightning Video Editors is quite cheap for what it does. Our team consists of the best experts in the world. People that have been doing this for years and have won awards. On top of that, most of them are experts in their fields and are still regularly coached by great mentors. This all adds up to a very unique team. Even if you would take an independent movie maker the price would be more expensive, because independent Video Editors don’t like editing videos they don’t shoot. Lightning Video Editors is the only company in the world that has developed a technique where it’s possible to convert regular looking videos into something interesting. So to conclude, for what we offer Lightning Video Editors is a premium brand for a premium price.
Q: Are there any hidden costs?
A: There are no hidden costs whatsoever. We will always ask permission before we start a project and there will be full transparency about our prices.
Q: What happens on an intake call?
A: This is where we establish what your vision is. We get to know what your needs are. Who is your target audience? We establish your goals and outline a strategy for your campaign. It is proven that a video on your website/ in your company will improve your conversion rates and increase workplace moral.
This is also where we determine what your budget is and how we can help you the best. If we have enough time, we can already start developing your screenplay/script during this call.
Q: What happens on a video shooting day (Executive Platinum package)?
A: If you chose our Executive Platinum package, then you have a choice:
1) We fly out right away with our equipment and we go through our process (See our Exclusive process on the homepage) with you step by step.
2) We go through the process on a call and only fly out for shooting day/week and then get back after everything is shot. During the Shooting the day we take the shots that are necessary to make this a vivid, efficient and gorgeous movie.
Q: Are you really available to travel all over the world for shooting (Platinum package)?
A: We are the only company in the world that is available to you all over the world. We are willing to fly all over the world depending on the moment and if it fits our schedule. As we are a European company this will mean more costs for Countries that are further away, like (South-America, Australia, South-Africa, …). But it is still possible.
We only do this for our Platinum package members and only if the project is demanding enough that there is a need for us to fly over.
Q: What about the legal rights for music, voice over and Video?
A: Videos that are shot by us are rights free. We can also provide music and voice-overs that are free of rights, but this needs to be asked up front. If you use images, music or voice-overs that are not provided by us , you will need the permission of the person that made them.
Q: Is there a possibility to ask for video editing for all sorts of projects?
A: We are specialised in video editing. This means we are available to you for all sorts of projects. That being said in Lightning Video Editors we help companies that invest money in the cultural development of their people and want to see them bond. For instance when you organize retreats, congresses and company trips.
Q: How long does it take to make an aftermovie?
A: With normal companies this ranges between 1-3 months. As we have to live up to our name, we try to deliver within 1-3 weeks. We have had Gold projects where we finished after 2 days. We try to hit the 1-2 week mark. This means if we need more time, we will be honest and contact you right away to ask for permission. If you have a deadline we will take all responsibility for not providing you with the correct time details and assign more people to finish it faster. You will not have to pay for extra costs.
Q: Is it really possible to adjust the aftermovie at all stages during the process?
A: We are a unique company in that perspective. You will have complete control over the video. You will have the personal contact email of the person in charge for your video. This goes for all packages. The difference is that in the Silver package we can’t offer unlimited revisions of the video once the product is finished. This doesn’t mean you can’t ask for revisions during the building phase.
Q: What is an aftermovie by your definition?
A: An aftermovie by our definition is a film or video that is being used to describe a certain conference. Usually, they are used in a professional manner. The more professional your conference, the more need for a professional aftermovie. Why do I keep saying professional? Partially for the google rankings, but also to make you understand that people won’t remember a conference that happened a year from now. That’s why it’s important to have the memory of that conference storied in a professional aftermovie, made my professional filmmakers.
Q: Why do you mostly do conferences?
A: A conference is a fun gathering of people.On top of that I also used to organize conferences in a past time. I have helped organizing TEDx, which in turn made it even more fun for us to make an aftermovie. Once you have connected with the people inside the organizing committee of the conference, it’s really hard to not enjoy that experience. Having the amazing superpower to make an aftermovie that can give people a memory of the conference, is just something I’m blessed to have.
Sometimes life-changing ideas are spread or the experience is just worth having of that conference. I found that making a professional aftermovie of that conference can help people remember it a little bit more. That is why conference with an experience worth sharing are the most fun to join as a filmmaker that makes aftermovies.
Q: Do you do other aftermovies or only for conferences?
A: Conferences are something we are fond of. The people, the speakers, and the organizers of a conference, they are all people we love to hang out with. A conference or HR event, always gives that extra moment of connection between us and the other people. They are clients that usually become friends later in life. Of course, we stay professional and deliver a proper aftermovie of the conference. However, there is nobody that can tell us not to enjoy ourselves during the process of making the aftermovie or attending the conference. In short, yes we love conferences and yes we love making aftermovies, however that is not all that we do.
We are actually a film production company that focuses on the video editing part. If you have footage that is not shot completely professional, then you can send it to our video crew and we can turn it into a professional aftermovie that is really fun to watch. Yes we focus on conferences, however that hasn’t stopped us doing some professional commercials that went on TV. Give us an experience, product or idea worth sharing and I’m pretty sure we can find ourselves a deal :).
Q: What do you mean with ‘Customer satisfaction above all’ in your core values?
A: This means that our priority is that you are happy with the way we contact you. The way we provide you with our service. The way you receive your product and of course the way you experience the product. The most important thing however is that you are happy with the way we are available to you after providing the product. A lot of companies hand over the product and just drop all contact. This doesn’t happen here! We are also open to feedback and you can always contact us through the contact form, by sending us an email.
