Hello. My name is Chris Jones and I have been working with video editing and production since 2005 when I started editing home movies with my 12 year old daughter. In 2012 I turned my passion for story telling and production into my mission and calling. My passion is to use pixels in motion to tell human stories of redemption and creation. Stories that communicate the vision of organizations that are trying to make a difference in our society. If you or your organization has a story to tell reach out to me.

I utilize Panasonic cameras from the GH line. For audio I record my interviews either with my Zoom or Tascam audio recorder. For microphones it is either a Rode shotgun or my Sennheiser wireless. For capturing movement I use a 3 axis gimbal, a pocket crane by Kessler and a motorized slider by Edelkrone. To edit my footage I use FCPX and I use Logic Pro X to create manuy of my soundtracks.

My Process

Stage one in the process is listening. During this stage we meet and we then discern the heart of the story. We discern the places where the heart of story is played out and we listen for the purpose and plot of the story.

Stage two is writing the story. This process involves uncovering the plot and the places where the heart of the story lives.

Stage three is getting our footage. We will schedule interviews of the people who shape your story and capture footage of the the places where the story happens.

Stage four is the editing process. This is the stage where the story comes to life. My editing occurs in two steps. Step one is editing the visual portion of the story. Step two is composing the music score to add an additional layer to your story.

My approach has been shaped mainly by the folks over at Stillmotion. I am forever indebted to their approach they call Muse. Click here to see their Muse website.
