Our Middle Ground Approach
It must be fairly obvious that we wouldn’t be discussing both the problems of cheap videos and the costs of expensive ones in such depth if we didn’t offer something more sensible and appropriate to the majority of needs.
Griffin Communications doesn’t attempt to provide the grand and sweeping looks of Hollywood, but we often enhance shots with our dolly and boom arm. We provide appropriate lighting as needed, our cameras are high definition with a variety of lenses and support equipment, our sound gear and capabilities are matched to specific needs, and all of this is usually done using items we own and provide at no additional cost. Our editing is done using the same Avid software used by 80+% of movies and prime time television programs. Our rate for editing includes every tool at our disposal, also at no additional cost.
We don’t believe that large numbers of people are needed to provide a high quality product. Nick Griffin serves as our director, primary cameraman and editor. Dwayne Shrader fills the roles of writer, producer, alternate cameraman and lead grip. When additional help is needed we add it sparingly and, sorry, we never have a craft services table on our shoots.
We are economical without being cheap. We are efficient and highly productive with a multi-faceted approach. Griffin Communications’ video services provide the choice of a welcoming middle ground.
