Having looked at Graphcom's
wonderful samples, and knowing Graphcom's International
Reputation for high quality, custom, heirloom video
productions, my siblings and I chose Graphcom to produce a
documentary of our parents 50 years of married life.
This was to be shown on their 50th Wedding Aniversary.
Jim Saunders at Graphcom
guided me through the pre-production planning stage.
His production consulting skills including, typing, quick
storyboard sketching, and extensive knowledge of video
capabilities were invaluable in refining the vision and
concept of what the production should be.
Working with Jim Saunders
during the production phase of the project, was not only
fascinating, but very educational.
Jim's world famous camera
animation of my old photographs, brought them to life.
It was almost like seeing them for the first time combined
with the unique experience of watching a movie. Jim
Saunder's expert camera movement created suspense and
firmly grabbed the viewer's attention.
Despite my best efforts of
research, there were a few instances where I could not
find images to illustrate the story. Jim, a former
Air Force commercial artist, came to the rescue by being
able create some very believable photographic looking
illustrations to fill the needs of the production.
During production, Jim
expertly directed me during the narration recording
sessions, and the chroma key scenes.
Despite the complexity of
production, Jim was able to take all of the elements of
the production, produce titles and graphics, put them
together, and meet the tight deadline.
