We are equipped to do on-site (yours or ours) single or multi camera shoots, either syncing to your own prerecorded track or by creating a live multi-track recording along with the video. as long as you can make it to one of our video facilities. In most cases, the client must be in-studio to make the video possible (although we do have some alternative means to create video using your footage).

*Due to the complexity and number of variables surrounding different video productions, we do not offer guarranteed rate quotes for video. However, we do have a couple very specific plans for some of our simpler video productions.

The affordable way to give you (or your band) the professional audio/video presence it needs to compete.
