What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They delivered the final edit early and within budget. I’m pleased they did because the network requested additional edits for things like disclaimer language. DMV productions quickly responded and performed the edits needed.
How did DMV productions perform from a project management standpoint?
They were professional and honest about what they could do within the strict timeline. This informed my decisions regarding how to work my list of priorities into the program. They made it easy to accomplish what we needed to in the allotted amount of time. If something couldn’t be done, they worked with us to come up with solutions without charging additional time.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They offer a laid-back, yet professional atmosphere. Patrick always knew what needed to be down and how to do it. Questions regarding feedback often evolved into conversations about creating the best product possible.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I’d like to see them utilize top-of-the-line equipment and software. Their computers made several errors that ended up costing us time. However, I’m genuinely pleased with how they executed the project.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Know what you what to achieve with the editing process and don’t be afraid if you don’t know how to accomplish it. Phrase your requirements in a way that the editor understands. If a directive isn’t clear the first time, don’t just repeat continuously. I’ve seen many producers waste time with that approach.
