What We Do

Video Editing, Grading, Retouching & Color Correction

At Outpost Pictures, we love telling visual stories. Great stories motivate everything we do, from the meticulously timed placement of an edit to the creation of a mood through the colors in a scene. Each video editing, grading or retouching service we offer is designed to help you craft narratives that engage the mind, stir the heart, and move audiences.

Services

  • Editing

    Crafting a performance. Leaving out the bad stuff. Mastering time and space. Our editors are not just button pushers who know all the keyboard shortcuts. They are storytellers in their own right, carefully choosing the right tone, rhythm and pacing of images to evoke exactly the reactions you seek.

  • Color Grading

    Fixing it in post. Making good better. Making better awesome. Everything needs color correction. It just does. And we render 4K color grades at 45fps with Resolve. Sweet.

  • Visual Effects

    Eye candy and whiz-bang. It’s not enough to composite images together. You have to add the elements that make them part of a believable world. From sparks to smoke to shadows to wisps of dust, our visual bag of tricks is bottomless.

  • Compositing

    Altering reality or creating it. Shoot on green screen, blue screen, grey screen or no screen, and we’ll combine it with your other elements to create a seamless, beautiful image. That’s compositing. (But avoid grey screen if you can. Just trust us on that one.)

  • Motion Graphics

    Making stuff move. Motion graphics are like regular graphics, but in motion! Of course, that means they aren’t like regular graphics at all. From clean, simple type treatments to elaborate, multi-layered creations, our motion graphics team will create something that moves you.

  • 3-D

    Another dimension. All the industry is abuzz about 3D. Whether they’re buzzing about 3D computer graphics or stereoscopic 3D, we’ve got you covered.

  • Audio

    Is this thing on?

  • Distribution

    Delivery in 30 minutes or it’s free. Okay, not really. But once you’ve finished your spot, video or film, it’s got to go somewhere. We’ll get it there for you – and tuck it in real nice and snug to make sure it doesn’t break along the way. Whatever the format, wherever the destination – we deliver.

  • Project Management

    Well somebody's gotta keep this thing from going off the rails. “Oh, great,” you’re probably thinking, “now they’re talking like boring corporate types.” Not so. Television, film and web projects can become big, complicated and messy with numerous vendors and opinions involved in creating a successful product. That’s where our project management skills come in. We’ve been in the business for a while. We’ve seen the industry evolve. We know what works, how it works and when a different solution will work better. Most importantly, we work hard to keep your post-production workflow on time and under budget. Cha' ching! See? Not boring at all.

  • Asset Management

    Because your fat asset needs management. You know it does. We have one word for you: petabyte. That’s over a thousand terabytes, and that’s probably on the low side of the amount of data we handle in our media management system on a regular basis. Your data is backed up to hard drive and archived to LTO tape with a 30 year shelf life. Masters and project files are mirrored off-site to the cloud. Didn't save that footage you thought you'd never need again? We did. We are constantly working to perfect an inherently imperfect process, all for one reason: to protect your data.

Tools

What matters more than the implement itself is the one who wields it. But just in case you geek out on such things (like we do), here are a few of our favorite tools:

  • Avid Symphony
  • DaVinci Resolve
  • Adobe Creative Suite
  • Storage DNA LTO-5 Media Archive
