The invention of the GoPro has led to more action sports being captured on video than ever before. Problem is, a lot of snowboarders, scuba divers, and mountain bikers don’t have editing software, nor the free time to relive their entire 5 hour ride in search of a few 10 second highlights. Over time, these long videos pile up on a hard drive and never see the light of day.
That’s where I come in. Drawing on years of experience of quickly combing through hours of footage, I will watch your videos at 2 to 3 times speed, pulling the most epic moments to edit into a short or export individually.
I may offer pricing lower than my standard rates for these types of jobs, as I am able to go through it a little faster than dozens of short clips.
It happens to everyone. You get a new GoPro or Drone, take it on a few trips, and then the files sit on a hard drive until you have time to go through it. But a lot of people do this as a hobby, so between work and life, they don’t have time to sit down and go through a few hours of footage, let alone learn an editing software and creatively cut something to music that they’d want to share on Youtube or social media.
I (Trevor Finchamp), on the other hand, have been doing that exact type of work since 2012. Both, for myself, and for dozens of clients. Ranging from world renown cinematographers to casual iPhone point-and-shooters. I started my career as an assistant editor for Moving Art (seen on Netflix). My job most days was to quickly sort through hours of raw footage, cut the highlights to sell as stock footage, and edit together a creative short. I eventually moved out of LA and started a small creative services company with my wife that we run out of our home.
I absolutely love my work. I get to look at vacation/adventure footage all day, create more easily watch-able personal memories for clients, and ultimately earn many of them passive income for years through Youtube monetization and stock footage sales.
Because my wife and I are such a small operation, I’m able to offer flexible pricing and a personal relationship and accountability with all of my clients. So don’t be afraid to send me a message no matter what your budget is, I will always try to make something work or at least provide by best advice or guidance.
