    All of our equipment is full broadcast standard from lighting and sound which helps enhance the natural environment and creates the very best visuals for your video.

    We have a range of ‘gadgets’ such as jibs and crane mounted cameras, track and dolly, product turntables and much more for our more exclusive packages. This equipment adds even more visual impact to your video.

  • How do you put my film together?

    Editing is the most vital stage of any production and so often the most overlooked.

    The editing process sets the whole style, pace and tone of the video. It’s here where special effects can be added such as 3D graphics, CGI, voice, text, and lots more.

    We use the latest industry standard Avid Media Composer digital editing suite. Your video will be edited to a ‘draft’ master for your approval before the final cut is produced.

    It is vital to have your video planned out on paper (story board) and agreed before filming commences, this makes editing easier and cost effective.

  • When will my video be finished?
    jim06-06-2015

    This depends on the complexity of your video and how many days filming is required. The more days involved generally means more days editing.

    A short talking head video can be turned around in a day whilst others can take anything from a week to several months.

    If your video requires complex graphics then this too is time consuming.

    We would agree on a delivery date and plan a schedule accordingly.

    We would normally present you with a draft version (rough cut) for you to comment on and then if there are any final tweaks we make these and you will then see the final version.

    Once you have signed this off we make and render your film for delivery.

     

  • Can I use my own music?
    jim06-06-2015

    Yes, if you have composed it and own the copyright.

    We have access to many sound tracks and can both source and organise the copyright buy out for you.

    You could use chart music but can cost multiple thousands to be released.

    Choosing music for your video is very important and can make or break the final video.

  • Are graphics to be provided or produced by Titan?
    jim06-06-2015

    Either, we always ask for your company logo, this needs to be supplied as a high resolution file in any format.

    We can produce animated graphics at an additional cost. However, some of our packages come with a graphic element included.

  • How is my finished video delivered?
    jim06-06-2015

    Your final video will be delivered to you within the agreed time frame and in a file format of your choice or we can produce a DVD.

    You may want artwork printed on your DVD and /or library case, We can design this for you or you can design it yourself. We can also assist with DVD duplication.

  • Who owns my final video?
    jim06-06-2015

    If you have come up with the concept for your video then once we have received final settlement payment you will own all of the intellectual rights apart from the music which will be granted for your production as a one off buyout.

    If Titan have written your script and/or concept. You will have total use of the video to use as you wish. However, you may not resell the concept. If you do then you will relinquish any rights on that production and all of the intellectual rights will revert back to Titan Films.
