At Southern Light Cinema, we believe in providing custom, tailored solutions for each of our clients. To ensure that we can deliver the best results possible, we need to have an understanding of your budget for video production.

In short, yes. But there are several reasons why clients may not want to receive raw footage from a video production project:


File size: Raw footage can be very large, making it difficult to store and manage, especially for clients without a robust video editing setup.


Quality control: Raw footage may contain shots that are not usable or meet the desired quality standards. A professional video production company will typically edit the footage to remove any unusable shots, ensuring that the final product is of the highest quality.


Time-consuming: Raw footage can be time-consuming to review and edit, especially for clients who are not familiar with video production. By outsourcing the editing process to a professional, clients can save time and resources.


Lack of context: Raw footage does not include the context or creative vision that the production company has for the final product. This can make it difficult for clients to understand how the raw footage fits into the larger picture.


In conclusion, while clients may be tempted to request raw footage to save on costs or have more control over the final product, it is usually best to leave the editing process to the professionals. A professional video production company will ensure that the final product is of the highest quality, and that it effectively communicates the desired message to the target audience.

We use a variety of cameras depending on the location/needs for the shots, including: Canon C70’s, Canon C300, Black Magic Ursa, Red Komodo, and Arri Amira.  For drone work, we use the DJI Inspire 2.

For  those who don’t know much about cameras, these are beautiful 4k and 6k cinema cameras.
