Video Production Services
Our corporate video production services include just about everything with the exception of shooting on location… but we can still arrange that for you, if that’s what you need.
Video Production Tools & Platforms
For all of our video editing, we use Camtasia and Adobe Premiere, and we animate everything in the Vyond platform. We use Rode professional microphones for our in-house voice over services.
Graphic Enhancements in Video Production
Our video editors love what they do, and it shows. We take client-provided raw footage to the next level by enhancing it with moving graphics and embellishments that make your content more engaging.
Video Services for Training & E-learning
We’re a corporate video production company who approaches videos for training and e-learning courses differently than we do promotional videos.
Our video staff meets with clients to consult on everything from lighting and sound, to length and style of video. We also help clients choose the type of video that will best fit their audience and budget.

Our global economy often requires translating content into other languages in order to reach more people. The URL dr offers full translation services for your videos in addition to closed captioning for the hearing impaired and for social media. Talk to us about our full video production services.
Many of our clients are new to video production and have never dealt with a video production company. Whether you use a professional videographer, film yourself with an iPhone, or have our video editors film you remotely via software similar to Zoom, we can coach you to get the best quality video for editing.
How to Shoot Video
From how to light your set and which camera to use, to how to record the best sound, our video specialists are professionally trained and can help you get the best quality video from your shoot.
How to Get the Best Voice Over
The best video can quickly become the worst if the sound isn’t up to par. We can give you tips and tricks to help you get the best quality voice over for your videos. If you decide you don’t want to do your own voice overs, we have a professional voice over studio in-house to record your scripts.

FAQ's about Video Services
Yes, we can. We offer scriptwriting services at an hourly charge. We can either write your scripts from scratch or edit a provided draft.
Sure. Many of our customers are authors, speakers, or trainers who have a book, workbook, PowerPoint, existing curriculum, or a workshop that they would like to adapt into animated videos.
That depends on where you’re going to use the video and who your audience is. Different platforms have video size and length limitations, so we’ll discuss that with you before starting your project. Generally, shorter videos (under 5 minutes) will hold your audience’s attention better than longer videos (over 7 minutes). We recommend individual animated videos stay under twelve minutes in length.
We do! We love developing material for children. Ask us for examples.
Yes! We can include talking head video, b-roll video, and screen capture video. We can also add your video to animation, which we call Combination or Mixed Media video and has its own rate. We can edit video you provide, as well.
Yes, we can! It can even include background music.
Absolutely. Kim Merritt, The URL dr, is our “in-house” voice talent. Her voice is available at no additional charge on video projects. If you’d like other voices, we are happy to source those for you at an additional cost.

Video Production Time Frame
We suggest you allow two weeks for a video of up to two minutes in length. Our current production schedule and how long it takes for you to provide information and feedback can impact the turnaround time of your project. For projects with multiple videos, please contact us for a quote.
The first thing we’ll have you do is fill out an onboarding questionnaire and quote form. This gives you the opportunity to tell us what you want your finished video to look like. We’ll need a finalized script, any video footage you want us to use, any graphics or images you want us to use, and your logo in a .png file format.
Video Production Costs
It takes longer to make a 10 minute video with 12 scene changes per minute than it does a 2 minute video with 4 scene changes per minute. That’s why we charge by the number of scene changes per minute and the finished length of your video in minutes. We have a video that gives examples of the four different levels of animation we offer to help you decide what’s right for your project (link to the video on the video page). To get a rough estimate of how many minutes your finished video will be, divide the total number of words in your script by 150. We include one round of changes for your video at no cost. Additional rounds of changes or edits to the voice over once it’s been recorded are charged at an hourly rate. Contact us for a quote.
Yes. We require 50% of any project upfront. We’ll bill the remaining balance in milestones throughout the project, with the balance due at the end.
We charge by the finished minute for most video, with the exception of sizzle reel promotional videos and screen capture recording of PowerPoint presentations. If you want to get an estimate of your video length, just divide the total number of words in your script by 150 (the average speaking word rate). We include one round of changes for your video at no cost. Additional rounds of changes or edits to voice over once it’s been recorded are charged at an hourly rate. Contact us for our video rates.
Yes, we can! They’re awesome! Just provide us with a picture of the person you’d like made into an animated character or give us direction for what you want the character to look like. We can customize everything from hair and eye color to what the characters are wearing.
