I have work with James Englund from Crash Symphony production over the last 3 months, translating a script for one of his projects and I must say, it was great working with him as he replayed towards questions within minutes. He seems very professional and would definitely recommend him to work with
Corporate Video Production
Is your company looking for a great promotional and corporate video? Look no further. We have a fantastic green screen facility for talking-head videos. We can provide full corporate video for both external and internal applications.Our studio has a modern teleprompter to ensure your presenter can maintain the perfect eye-line straight down the barrel of the camera during the video presentation. A strong, confident, unwavering eyeline is essential when building trust and rapport with your video audience.
How Audio Meets Video
Our Corporate Video Production Sydney Service is unique because it is closely integrated with our high-end audio recording equipment. It is more often that when filming corporate video the audio is outsourced or recorded with substandard portable recording equipment. We have made the effort to integrate the best of both worlds into one setup. This includes systems that will record the audio at the highest quality currently available and the video will be filmed with high-end video recording equipment. This equipment is in close proximity to our green screen. The green screen allows us to drop in different backgrounds behind the person who is talking. This effect, called Chroma-key, is pivotal to providing extremely professional videos for corporate use. Rather than needing to venture to difficult to reach locations, which is costly, we can create these locations and backdrops with our videography software. You can learn more about our Green Screen videography techniques here.
Why Our Teleprompter is So Important
Our Teleprompter is important to our Corporate Video Production Sydney Service. This device allows us to setup our cameras so they shoot through a special mirror that displays scripts for the reader. This means that when the reader is speaking the content they are looking straight down the barrel of the camera lens. This completely eliminates the perception to the viewer that the person speaking is reading a script, and hence, increases the believability and fluidity of the spoken content. This enhances the impact of the video on the viewer dramatically. Without this teleprompter readers will appear to be reading material that is place next to the camera. The readers eyes will not be looking at the camera and it will be eminently obvious that the person is reading from a script. Immediately the video will appear to be unprofessional and lack veracity. You can read about our teleprompter here.
Where Music Comes into YOUR Video Project
Music is a key component to well produced video. This is offered as part of our Corporate Video Production Sydney Service. We have highly talented composers and musicians who are specialist at composing music that is right for your video. Alternatively, we have a wide selection of precomposed music that you can select for the project. Please view James’ work here.
Editing the Content
Editing of video and audio content is a significant part of our Corporate Video Production Sydney Service. Unlike pure speech editing, that is localised to audio only, the content is limited by the video edits. For example, once we synch up the high-definition audio content to the video, our correctional speech edits are limited by what is being cut in the video. If we edit the speech, and not the video, then the speech will quickly become out-of-synch with the video picture. It will appear fabricated to the viewer. This is not the case with audio editing. Our speech editing (of pure audio content) is highly detailed. Creating fluent speech on the audio medium is very achievable. All vocal errors, “ums” and “has”, mistakes, are all removed. We are very capable of editing together multiple video takes to create the sense of fluency on a video. Transitions, fades, intros and outros, are all managed by our editing team after all the audio and video footage has been capture. This is called the “post-production phase” of the project. A common misconception regarding the creation of video content is that once the filming and recording is over the video production is complete. This is far from the truth. In fact, an important phase of the project is piecing together all of the components of the project to create am impressive and unified video production. The music, footage, audio files, titles, credits and any animation, are combined as one entity, ready to present your message to your viewers.

Expert Sound Engineers
Working with us means working with the best sound engineers in Sydney
The art of being an excellent sound engineer is not as prominent now that video has become the focus of our world. However, a top quality sound engineer can augment the quality of a production dramatically. When we record a vocal for music or a voice over for an ad we have the ability to enhance every aspect of that recording. The modern tools available to the twenty-first century sound engineer are truly remarkable. Staying on top of the rapid progress is very much a full time job. Let's take a quick look at what work is involved in producing an excellent vocal recording for a typical voice over job.
Our sound engineer will setup the session prior to the talent arriving. In the most extreme cases, often film ADR sessions, the project and microphones will need to be prepared first. Our clients, from film productions companies, are often located in another country like the USA, the UK, or somewhere in Europe. They will send the sound engineer the program material. This will be the video files with SMPTE timecode, the cue sheet, and all specifications required by our sound engineer to capture a similar sound to what was recorded on set.
Once these program elements are received our sound engineer in Sydney will go into Pro Tools and mark out all the cue points on the timeline of the film. Each entry point will have ADR beeps that will help the talent execute their lines in Synch with the film. In ADR the talent's job will be to lip synch in time with their delivery on set. By setting up the project prior to the talent arriving our sound engineer ensures that the session flows smoothly for the talent.
Often these "remote sessions" (where the directors and producers are overseas) are facilitated by software that helps us communicate with the overseas studios. Programs like Zoom and Source-Connect allow sound engineers in both locations to be actively involved in the session. The sound engineer overseas can literally press the recording button in one country and our software will obey the command here in Sydney. The directors and producers can watch the video content on their screen whilst listening to the audio being recorded by our sound engineers in Sydney. It's real-time. It's the modern way. It's remarkable!
In this example, an ADR recording session, the sound engineer would also need to setup two microphones. One would be a lapel mic, similar to what might have been used on set, and the other a shotgun microphone. These two microphones are setup by our sound engineer in Sydney in front of a screen. This is to allow the talent to clearly view the film as they are performing. An iPad is also positioned in close proximity to the microphones. This will have all the cue points and lines that the talent will be reading during the ADR recording session.
During the session the sound engineer will be facilitating the smooth capture of cue lines. They make sure that all the takes of each line are saved for future recall and re-listening, and can even cut recorded takes together to create a composite "best take".
Once the ADR session is complete the post-production work on the re-recorded lines begins. The amount of work that goes into the audio post-production is beyond the scope of this example. However, we can give a few examples of the kind of technology our sound engineer might decide to use on the recorded cue lines. There is software to reduce lip and mouth noises. Harsh sibilant frequency can be curtailed. The synch of the spoken lines can be further tightened by intelligent algorithms that look at the original "on set" spoken audio and literally stretch, cut, and compress lines recorded in our Sydney recording studio and make them even tighter. The list of tasks, options, and enhancements that our sound engineer can apply to a voice recording is enormous.
