Veteran editors Jeff Evenson and Ed Pickart have merged their talents and resources in Motion Post that delivers post services “where you want it, and when you need it,” they say.
Producers have the option of working in Motion Post’s new 900-sq. ft. Forest Park space, or having their fully-equipped HD mobile system set up wherever they are.
“Clients don’t have to come to you anymore, you can go to them. It saves travel time and the expense of not being out of the office,” says Evenson, president of the Chicago Final Cut Pro Users Group (CHIFCPUG).
“We have remote mobile postproduction equipment and services, customized for any occasion and delivered to any location?on the set, office, beach or studio.”
Their Final Cut Pro mobile editing system consists of computer, monitors, tape decks and an IO-HD interface box “that ingests HD video and spits out HD, or SD,” he says.
While everything is configured for each client, the smallest ?footprint’ for our system, notes Evenson, would be a single case that measures 3.5-ft. long, 2-ft. wide and 1.5-ft. deep, and the case is on rollers.
A small number of post boutiques may offer this service, “but no one specializes in it and no one offers the level of integration and adaptability Motion Post offers,” he maintains.
For those who prefer traditional editing facilities, their office has two comfortable Final Cut Pro editing suites, a voiceover booth, and the services of DVD authoring, graphics and Blu Ray.
Evenson and Pickart, equal partners in Motion Post, have been in-demand freelance editors for corporate, broadcast, sports and TV shows.
