Snow Hill Productions crafts promotional videos for non-profit organizations, and Macs are used to do it, according to a recent Hot News article posted to Apple’s Web site.
Ralph Preston and Deborah Thomas record video on Betacam SP format and edit it with Apple’s own Final Cut Pro software, using a Power Mac G4 with a Digital Voodoo D1 card. Using that equipment they’re able produce professional quality results while saving time and money, making it less expensive for cash-strapped non-profit organizations to get the word out about their services, according to author Nancy Eaton.
“They estimate they’re able to offer non-profits professional-quality video services for up to 40 percent off retail prices,” wrote Eaton.
Habitat for Humanity, drug rehabilitation programs, and a charity that helps those in need with their utility bills and rent have already benefited from Preston and Thomas’ work, and others are in the works, too.
