To help you Super Stuff are offering online Consultations to Making Music groups to help you plan your next digital project - with solutions for all sizes of projects and budgets.

Video Editing for Music Groups

A professional video edit service for your ‘lockdown’ style video performance. 

Perhaps you and your group have recorded an elaborate lockdown video (with all musicians independently videoing their part) but now you don’t quite have the time and computer power to stitch it all together, or perhaps you’d rather focus solely on the music and leave the tech stuff to someone else. 

Super Stuff are offering an efficient customisable video editing service perfect for music groups!

How it works:

  • Complete our ‘Video Options’ online checklist to confirm exactly what you would like from the video.
  • Supply our editor Leon with all the necessary parts - video files, audio files, logos etc.
  • Our editor Leon will be in contact with you via email throughout the project to talk through any choices, recommendations etc.
  • You receive the final high quality video as a downloadable file ready for you to publish on your chosen online platform or simply share with your group (we can give advice on how to do this!).

What kind of video:

  • These videos are all about showing off the skills and progress of your group and we’ll be editing the footage and audio in such a way to stay true to that ethos allowing all members to be seen and heard appropriately with the option to focus on key members and soloists if required.
  • Keeping loyal to the classic ‘lockdown’ music performance video we’ll divide the screen up into rectangles allowing the viewer to watch all the performers simultaneously - emulating the experience of attending the performance in person.
  • Part of the beauty of creating a ‘lockdown’ performance video is gaining an excellent high quality marketing asset perfect for promoting upcoming events, raising your group profile or reaching out to potential new members. For that reason we start the video edit with your logo and brand the video in accordance to suit your style.
  • Some ‘lockdown’ style videos are filmed with the musicians playing along to the pre-recorded audio only version of their piece, requiring the editor to combine both the video and audio into one seamless edit. We can certainly achieve this and can also work to create videos when your group has recorded everything ‘as live’.
  • All videos are colour-graded and the audio & video is treated to achieve the highest quality results.

Who edits the video:

  • Leon Gower personally undertakes all of our video edits purchased via Making Music.
  • Over 2020 Leon has been working with Making Music to produce a series of resources aimed at keeping music groups rehearsing and performing using digital tools and online platforms - you may have attended one of Leon’s Making Music events on Video Editing, Audio Editing or Live Streaming.
  • Additionally, he has years of experience editing video and sound for professional broadcasters and musicians.
