Most videos have the goal of getting some sort of return - the company is looking to sell more widgets, gain exposure, or build their brand. I start by asking them what success looks like and how it effects their business.
I worked with a higher education client that was trying to raise multiple millions of dollars to fund a new building, a video that helps them raise that money is worth quite a bit, so you can price it accordingly. If they are looking to capture an event for posterity, their return is peanuts and your pricing probably reflects that.
Every client has a budget in mind, but if you can take their potential outcome/benefit and use that as part of your negotiations, you will always get a better rate.
You will not loose color information, you are not gaining information either. You are starting with a compressed codec and changing it to another codec. It won't be as compressed, but you don't gain detail or color or anything else, you are just making it so that your computer doesn't have to work as hard to playback footage.
Instant distribution to an audience that is actively participating in the filmmaking process, what a world we live in!
Very cool idea and excellent execution!
It's already been discussed and he is reducing the amount of tag spam he uses.
There is still the issue of what is allowed vs. what is banned. Self promotion is allowed and many people use the board to get feedback on short films and demo reels. There needs to be a place for that on the boards, but I agree with Guy, maybe separate sections for questions/podcasts/self promotion/blogs/feedback...
The boards could be a really helpful place!
It is possible, but you have to train the software to recognize the voice. Premiere used to have a feature that attempted this, but it was almost always more trouble than it was worth.
The easiest way is still to pay for a transcript to be created.
