StacyFXproductions! Everything in Post!

I am interested in talking to you about your project. Do you need more than just editing? If you want a professional sounding voiceover and you want it now give me a call. Need Royalty Free Music? Send me an email of a low res video file, and I'll scored your music fast! In some cases I offer a one day turn around. If you want a sample sent me a short clip. If you need editing, graphics, sound design, color correction or other post production services read on:

I have A to Z experience in all phases of production and would be interested in helping on your project as needed. I write script, light, shoot, direct, edit, and publish to the Internet using search engine optimization techniques. Website/graphic design are also available.

In post production I do: editing, color correction, sound design, music scoring, ADR, voice-overs, tracking and rotoscoping. I have a top of the line Mac Pro loaded with editing and graphic software including Final Cut Pro Studio, Avid, and Autodesk Smoke for post production in my studio or I can boot up my software from an external drive on your workstation.

Sound design and arranging royalty free soundtracks for any genre is part of my service. I have about 200 GB of royalty free music from which to compose a score for your project and about 200 GB of sound effects that almost eliminate the need for Foley. Add to that my professional voice-over for your trailer and you have a complete package.

Almost all footage needs color correction. There is no substitute for good production light, but the best of ideas in production can change in post. Where shots were taken in poor lighting I can effective create three point lighting in post adding tracking spotlights to the right or left, and to the foreground or background if necessary.

That's my pitch. I am looking forward to talking to you about your project. Please contact me as soon as possible so I can understand your scheduling and plan my other business accordingly to work on your projects. I live in Tustin, Orange County and welcome an opportunity to talk about how I can meet your needs.

Thank you for your consideration.
