Our range of professional post-production services give you flexibility when it comes to getting regular quality video. So you never have to fear your next insta post or video clips again. We hold over a decade of experienced editing, animation, color grading, sound design, visual effects & motion graphics.
A video editing service involves professionally manipulating and arranging video footage to create a polished final product. It includes tasks like cutting, sequencing, adding transitions, applying effects, animation, graphics, colour grading, audio integration, and text/graphics inclusion by an experienced video post-production company. This service is crucial in post-production for filmmaking, television production, animation and other video content creation, enhancing visual and auditory elements for a cohesive, professional and engaging result.
The pricing of video editing services can vary widely depending on several factors. These include the complexity and length of the footage, the level of expertise required, the specific editing tasks involved, and the turnaround timeline.
For basic video editing services, such as simple cuts of clips and adding music, you might find more affordable options, especially if the footage is relatively straightforward. However, if your project requires advanced editing techniques, special effects, cinematic storytelling editing, intricate audio adjustments, visual effects, animation or a faster turnaround, the pricing is likely to increase. At Trendy Grandad we edit our projects on the latest editing software to ensure our clients receive the best quality creative output possible & our client satisfaction is always 5 stars!

This subscription model is designed to provide businesses with a consistent and cost-effective solution for their video content needs.

One of perhaps the more obvious reasons as to why a video editing subscription is a good idea for your business is that it's the ultimate time and energy saver. From brainstorming ideas to execution, getting regular video production, clips and animation is pretty time-thirsty.

It's an efficient way to free up valuable time and resources. Look at us as your new shiny piece of creative software!
It takes years to learn how to perfect sound design, motion graphics & visual effect. We have put in those hours over the last decade which means we can save you tonnes of time & produce a piece of creative that really helps you stand out as a brand.
Consistency is something that we all set out to do, but in reality it's not as easy at it first seemed. But with our video editing subscription, no more worrying about those awkward content gaps. Blog posts? Check. Social media gems? You got it. Stunning visual effects? Absolutely. Beautiful storytelling, we got you! And the best part? It's all done at a consistently high-quality that will leave your competitors wondering how you do it. Client satisfaction 100!

We're all guilty of posting something last minute on the business social media account because, well, we needed to post something. But unfortunately as many of us will know, any successful and robust marketing strategy requires all activity and content to be well thought out and planned in advance... which means no more last minute frantic social media posting, sorry.
