Video Post Production

Editing and post production is where it all began here at Verendus back in 2002 when I purchased my first Avid editing station. Since that time post production has always played an integral part of my business and I continually seek to improve my services with new technologies and equipment, sometimes simply enhancing a service I already offer, and sometimes offering completely new services such as the recent addition of color grading in Baselight.

In post (as well as in production) I believe the most effective results are achieved through a combination of art and science. While the most compelling films and videos are brought together through the well-crafted pace of an edit and an evocative color grade that matches the emotions of the story, there is also a technical side of knowing how to deal with different codecs, bit depths, data rates, color spaces, and more. In-depth technical knowledge allows these different aspects to become tools to further the story instead of being roadblocks or frustrations throughout the process.

I am one of the few post production providers in the Portland area that edits on the industy-standard Avid Media Composer. While many around here have moved to Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro in recent years, I have chosen to stay with Avid for its versatility, speed of use, interoperability with Avid Pro Tools, and expanded toolsets through options and plug-ins. I am able to provide enhanced services and effects utilizing plug-ins including Boris FX Continuum Complete, Boris FX Sapphire, Boris FX Mocha Pro, and Filmlight Baselight Editions. For projects that require it I also have Adobe After Effects for  special titling or effects work and Adobe Premiere Pro for inter-operability with projects that may have been started there.
