A note from the forest people:
Here in our studio, we've been working to evolve and automate the labor-intensive task of making transcripts from our video material. This year we took a giant step forward.
We transformed the labor of creating transcripts into a multi-tasking process to make postproduction edit-scripting quick and easy. Simultaneously, our PowerScripts become a resource for creating websites, books, CDs and a convenient research database.
The time and expense we once invested to get a typed sheaf of papers for the edit room now yields a powerful, searchable database, complete with words and pictures which are stamped with time-code. The result is a flexible tool** for accessing just the shot you need for quick edits. You can search by key word, name, reel, time-code, subject, B-reel scene--or whatever combinations you wish--all keyed back to your original video source.
We've trained great people to work with us now, and we're interested in providing this service to selected colleagues at attractive rates.
Here are some examples for you to look over. They show a variety of printout formats we use in our projects.
With your own project database transcript, you can print-out in a wide variety of formats, from standard 8.5"x 11 transcript sheets to 3x5 cards with pictures and text (very useful for helping you think through your edit).
deliver a fully searchable database transcript**
of your tapes on CD, which you can configure for print-out
according to your preferences. You can electronically cut
and paste the visuals and text into a storyboard script or
automatically generate rough edit decision lists (EDLs) to
create subject strings for resource reels or for digitizing
into subject bins. We also add a free
catalog and project glossary. A fee schedule
We've designed this service to assist you in sharpening the post-production process for your projects while enriching your ability to quickly generate web and print media content. Please email us at PowerScript@Forests.com so we can arrange to bring this power to your current project today.
