Video Editing Help Needed.

Ok, I am going to try to sub out some video editing. I am not fast at it, and am staying busy enough with photography that I may be better off out sourcing it, than doing it myself.

I have several weddings on timelines, some are almost done, some are synced through the ceremony. Some only converted with cineform to avi and dropped on timelines.

I shoot a basic edit video, very little if any before ceremony, I offer a very basic video coverage, usually one camera, but shoot with 3 for my peace of mind.

Wondering if anyone on here has experience doing this and the cost. I will try with one wedding and see how it goes.

Cameras I use Sony EX1, Canon XH-A1 and HV30.
They are on an Adobe Premier Pro CS4 Timeline now.

Anyone interested in doing this let me know.

If this works out, may still offer video next year and just send the footage to them and pay more.

I can edit these myself If I have too, but will be better business if I can sub it out right now.

I am interested in editing the weddings; not sure if i would be able to complete the ones in progress.

i edit with adobe cs3 running on a matrox rt.x2 card, have not yet updated to cs4.

do you have a wedding i could review to get an idea of what the completed edited finsished product is?

also, do you just what them edited where you can make additional cahnges or do you want them completed to a dvd/blu ray to deliver?

Give me/us an estimated cost for a wedding edit.

I have more than I can edit right now.

What type of editing is needed? I do not have a set price, it would depend on the type of edit you need.

As mentioned I edit with the adobe cs3 collection and matrox rt.x2. This setup works well for both dv and hdv projects. Other formats are supported but I have not worked with anything other than dv and hdv.

The wedding season here is slowing down and I have time to take additional post projects and would be able to continue editing in 2010 if needed.

here are various clips for review:

Sample Ceremony

The best method is to send your audio and video files in folders on a notebook hard drive along with instructions for the edit. I will send clips for you to review as the edit progresses.

PM or email the details for your editing and let's see if we can make an arrangement that benefits both of us, thanks.
