I Had Another Production Company Do a Video and They Screwed It Up, Can You Fix It?

We are often called by distressed potential clients asking this very question. Firstly, we get them to breathe a sigh of relief because yes, we usually can at least improve what has been done. However, the full answer is a bit more complicated.

 The scope with which we can “fix” (implementing your desired changes) the project depends both on how the previous video production company butchered it and what assets we are provided. Let’s discuss each of those points in more detail.

If the original, raw files the previous company shot had major technical issues with it (such as loud wind noise distorting dialogue, totally out of focus or significantly over/under exposed shots), it will be almost impossible to resolve. As someone once said, “you can’t polish a turd”! If these type of issues are the main problem, the content would really have to be re-shot and the project done again from scratch.

Should the fixes you are wanting be more edit based, they are easier to resolve, so long as we have the edit files or as clean a copy of the raw footage as possible so we can recreate the edit.

So what can be done if there are no major technical issues with the footage itself but you have no access to the edit file, what can we do then? Well, let’s say you have a finished video with text on it, we can’t remove that text if we don’t have access to the edit file. However, we can cover over that text and put other text in its place or, if the text is small enough and on an edge of the frame, we can look at cropping the image in so the text does not appear. These tricks are just some examples of how we can improve a video if the footage is generally ok, but there is no access to the original edit file.
