    Do you have a question about our video production and animation services? Check out our frequently asked questions to see if you can find the answer…

    We offer a complete range of video production and animation services; from creating the concept and creative treatment to filming, editing, encoding and hosting. We’ll make your vision a reality. Whether you want to turn a presentation into a video; film a speech given by your CEO; turn images into motion graphics or film on location, we have a skilled team of creative producers, camera crew, and video editors available from our studios based in Reading, Berkshire, UK.
    We primarily edit in Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects, but we also have an AVID editing suite and many more programmes that we utilise as required.
    If you need to completely reversion all the video content, including the captions, on-screen text, animations and audio, we’ll ideally need the source files. That is the project file from the software the video was originally created in, e.g. Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premier, AVID etc.

    Without the source files, it is still possible to localise the video, but it will be more difficult and it won’t give the translated videos the same polish as the original.

    We can transcribe and translate all the text and audio into over 80 languages, rebuild the video and animations and re-encode and deliver in any file format.

    The Big Word

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
