Yukon Angel Productions

Video Services for Family & Non-Profits

 


The Bible Reading, Devotionals & Theology portion of this site have moved to Lean-into-God.
Yukon Angel Productions is under construction.

History

     This website started in 2006. It combined my passion for the Bible and the things of God with my interest in video editing. However, I knew people wanting to find resources for their walk with the Lord would not be searching for a website called Yukon Angel Productions. Therefore, on 9/24/14 I started the move to create two websites replacing the one. The theology portion of this website has moved to Lean-into-God.

Post Production

     Many people enjoy taking pictures and shooting video. While I do occasionally take pictures and shoot video, what I really enjoy is post production. Lily and I have done weddings, but I prefer not to make myself a nuisance to get a good shot. I really think the Wedding Planner is the most important person at a wedding. Friends and family can supply all the needed pictures and media to preserve memories. I enjoy tweaking the media and then putting it all together to bring life to those lifeless camera cards and CD's and DVD's that are stuffed in a drawer or in a shoe box in the closet.

Music

     I try to craft my client's videos to the music they provide. If they give me a slow song their video will reflect that song and likewise if they give me a fast song then their video will be much more upbeat. A client's music choice becomes the framework within which I make their video.

     Music copyright legislation requires me to request that my clients supply the music they want used for their project. Sometimes you can upload music videos to YouTube or Vimeo without any problems. Other times it gets pulled immediately or even months later. So far I have had no problems sharing music videos from Google Drive with family and friends. Note recent video below.

Photoshop can do a lot to make your pictures better for video, but

Remember, if your pictures are out of focus sharpening can only do so much

up to a point ... leveling can make a really big difference in dark pictures

but blown out pictures have no information to tweak

So if your pictures are in focus and not blown out than much can be done to make a nice picture great

Even small pictures, if sharp, can be enlarged and made usable

I cannot describe the incredible benefits of family videos

I encourage my kids and anyone who will listen to use their cell phones, cameras, camcorders to frequently - yes frequently capture daily as well as special events, focusing on people and pets more than landscapes and inanimate objects. When you grow older the memories will return when you watch the old family movies again and again.

It just isn't that hard to have a family website, whether YouTube or Vimeo, that all family members can share and enjoy.

Yukon Angel Productions is first & foremost a family website. If you don't have the time or inclination to turn your pictures into family videos then let me help. I know the importance of preserving and sharing family memories.

  • You can send me your media via Google Drive, Drop Box or other online storage.
  • Let me know how you want it delivered; usually the same way you send it.
  • Want your videos on YouTube or Vimeo? Don't know how? I can do that for you.
  • Simple slideshows or complicated After Effects projects are available.
  • I charge $50 an hour. Most one song videos (45-70 pictures) will cost between $150 and $250.
  • Not happy with your video? I will return half of your payment. So far everyone has been happy.

Not sure what to ask for?

There are over 100 videos on our family site. Some are from very poor source material; old cameras, VHS camcorders, the $6.99 disposable cameras we used to get from Walgreens, older cell phones held vertically instead of in landscape mode, etc. However, isn't it better to save a moment poorly than to have nothing at all?

If you see a format, style you like let me know and I will try to do the same for your video, otherwise I am guided by the music you choose.
