16th July 2019 – Phew! What another very busy week for Final Cut Video Editing and Photos. We have finally finished a huge edit on a Wedding Video which was handed to us by a client from Dudley in the West Midlands (UK)

George & Maryja Croft 1.10

As we have mentioned previously the wedding video was almost three and a half hours (far too long) and we were tasked to bring it down to a shorter length, creating some photo montages along the way and really bringing it to life. The video also had blank frames and lots of camera shake! So unprofessional for a wedding videographer.

We don’t often talk about the editing side of our business as we really mostly do Video and Cine transfers to DVD/USB and photo work.

Editing is a big part of our business though. Maybe you have some footage that is far too long like a wedding video that needs a professional touch to bring it alive. We can do this by adding music, montages, transitions, titles and so much more. We can also edit together your mobile phone clips creating a DVD movie. Any type of video footage can be edited to bring it alive.

Something dull can be bought to life!

9th July 2019 – Final Cut has had a website since we launched our business in August 2015 and it’s job is to keep our clients and customers informed about what we do and our services. Preserving memories is our primary goal and making all of our customers a little bit happier.

Did you also know that we have an advert on Yell.com which the biggest online business directory in the UK. Yell.com is the old Yellow pages.

 Yell advert

Since we went into Yell at the beginning of 2016 our reviews which our customers post about the work we have done for them has grown significantly. We currently have 85 reviews with 80 being five star. There are around 200 business who do the same as us throughout the UK (listed on Yell). No one has more reviews than us. We can safely say that we are the best transfer business in the UK.

1st July 2019 – Late last week we were contacted by a lady and her husband who had a collection of nine VHS Videotapes and some camcorder cassettes that had been in storage box for sometime. The tapes did have some writing on them but they weren’t sure what was actually on the tapes.

They did want their family footage to be transferred to DVD but had no way of finding out which tapes had the material they wanted. Video recorders no longer exist, so the tapes could not be viewed. They were really confused!

We are often asked if we can view tapes and cine films before they are converted, so the customer can find out what is on their old formats!

Maybe you are sure that footage of your son/daughter at a school sports day in the 1970’s or 80’s exists on a cine reel or a videotape somewhere but you are not sure where it is. At Final Cut we can view all of your material for a fee and let you know the contents so when you do go ahead with the transfers you will know exactly what you want when we start a project.

No need to be so confused!

25th June 2019 – Recreational Knife Throwing Part II – Advanced Techinques.

Many people take lots of Video footage of trips to far off places and once in a lifetime holidays (We transfer a lot of this type of material). Sometimes though we do get handed something totally different and I must say fascinating.

Recreational Knife Throwing – Part II 2

It’s not everyday we get asked to transfer footage of a unique kind of hobby and a pretty dangerous one as well.

At Final Cut Video Editing and Photos we can transfer video footage of anything as long as it’s not illegal and if it is something very private to you then the upmost discretion will always be provided. We have seen quite a lot of material that people would want to maybe keep to themselves but still view it from time to time.

We can make that happen. Whether its late at night on your TV or on a computer from a USB. Your memories are yours. We can bring them back to life for you. Not matter what it might be!

18th June 2019 – No job is too big or small for us at Final Cut Video Editing and Photos.

We sometimes get asked to do something like a simple copy from a DVD as the customer sometimes wants to create a back-up just in case a precious memory becomes damaged or lost. This occurred only yesterday when a lady dropped us in a DVD of a theatre production that her five year old daughter was in. She didn’t want to lose the only copy and have nothing to look back on.

And a few days previously we were handed a collection of 33 videotapes to convert to DVD and USB.

Collection of Videotapes

A very big project which can take sometime to do. We never rush a job so the customer gets something of very good quality and will treasure for many years to come.

We are very busy at the moment but we can still take on new projects. It just might take time to complete it properly.

11th June 2019 – As we mentioned last week, a new customer whose son got married last September was given a three and a half hour long weddding video which we have been tasked to edit down to a more manageable length.

Weddings are the one memory within our lifetime that always stays in our minds and most people from the mid 1980’s onwards had a Video done of their special day.

We love working on wedding videos and we have transferred hundreds to DVD and USB. This week we have been working on a wedding filmed on a camcorder from 2001, which has been transferred to DVD for the customer. Have a look below at an image from the tape.

Wedding Day Photograph

As we have said on many occassions, Videotape does degrade and the longer you leave it the more degraded the tape can become. Sometimes depending on how it is stored this can be quicker. Would you want the memory of your special day to degrade to such an extent that it is unwatchable! It is best to preserve it before it’s too late. Have it transferred to new media! Don’t let it fade away.

4th June 2019 – Blimey what a busy few days it has been. We have finished the edit on our new video which now has pride and place on our home page. We thought it was time to be update it as the previous one was a little dated. We hope you enjoy it. A great pleasure to put together! You can view it by going to the home page or just clicking into the box.

In the last few days we have been contacted by two previous clients with more videotapes to transfer onto DVD and we have also recieved a box of fifteen STD 8mm Cine films from a customer in Lancashire which were are currently viewing. They are fascinating. We love working with old material. It going to be very busy during the next few weeks. 

One enquiry we did recieve was from lady whose son got married last September and was given a three and a half hour long Wedding Video which is obviously far to long for family viewing and we have been tasked with cutting it down to a more manageable length with a new photo montage of the special day. We have done this kind of thing before for previous customers.

28th May 2019 – Last week has definitely been a busy one, we have just completed a shoot for our new home page video. The last one was a little old so we decided it was time for a new one. The edit is almost complete so it will be posted very soon.

We have also taken possession of 8 VHS-C Camcorder tapes from a previous customer. She had a batch of 30 so these ones will be the last ones for the client. More wonderful memories to transfer to DVD.

Enquiries are coming in all the time from all areas of the country for Cine transfers and Editing.

22nd May 2019 – During the last few weeks we have come into the possession of a 1950’s Ferrograph Reel to Reel Tape recorder that used to belong to the BBC. It is a beautiful peice of history and we shall be using it to transfer these types of audio recordings.

This Ferrograph was sold to us by a retired GP who lives in Lichfield Staffordshire (UK). In the early part of his medical career he did field work in an African Hospital (Botswana) and used reel to reel tapes to record onto and then send back to his family in the UK to tell them about his experiences.

We are currently transferring these tapes onto a USB stick so he can hear them again and relive the past with his family. You can see this machine in action by just clicking into the box.
