Thanks!

Thanks everyone for all the feedback. I carefully considered all the suggestions, and I did make some changes to the site including adding my show reel. I would be curious if anyone has any additional feedback.

Thumbs up. Now it looks like you're offering full service.

Your demo reel shows off the diversity of your style of shooting. I'd up the bit rate for your encodes. As I'm a compressionist as well I see some issues.

I would put the video item on the left of the page and not in the middle - most English speakers read/look from left to right so leftmost position is the first one they read and looks most important.

Still hate the white type - very hard/annoying to read.

Craig, what bitrate do you recommend for internet video? I have been sticking around 800kbps but would love to go a bit higher.

No apostrophe in, 'Our clients enjoy extremely high production values....'

and, 'We work with our clients to analyze their needs...'.
One client, many clients.

And I'd delete all the exclamation marks in your disc creation services. There's nothing to exclaim about here.

This might come in handy in terms of how users actually look at web pages.

i think web and video are fine together. any tips for my Sites?

i don't see any problem listing web with video, you see more and more websites with video on them everyday.

i however have separate web sites for my video business. one is for music videos and band promo videos, and the other has to do with corporate type videos.


I'm more of a producer/editor since the only "gear" I have is an editing PC. when i shoot something I find someone to shoot it or rent a camera.

any suggestions for my sites? should I not make it sound like i have a production company and just put producer or something?

here are the sites.

Hello Dave,

I went to your video website and from my perspective, I would put the content of your "about us" page on your homepage. Clients do not care about your camera. They care about what you can do for them.

Also, I thought the black text on a grey background was difficult to read.

Good luck.

Is the thinking that since you don't own gear, you shouldn't call yourself a production company? If so, I'll disavow you of that. Owning gear has nothing to do with production or calling yourself a a production "Company".
