When you have a large number of client videos to send out for approval each month, it takes a streamlined editing process, smart documentation, time efficiency, and a medium to communicate all of those things.
At Vid Monster, we're a fan of Vimeo Review.
Some of our clients have never heard of Vimeo, so sometimes it can be confusing initially to help encourage them to use the platform during the review/editing/approval process for finalizing video projects.
We like it because it's super easy for everyone and it has a very efficient and thorough documentation process that makes it easy to know the who/what/where/when a client means when they say they need an edit on a video.
Our CEO & Creative Director Sam Kirby even made this handy-dandy video to teach you about it...
Can you see how easy that process could be to review your video and notate any changes you wanted?
From selecting the general area to the very specific pixel on the screen, you can communicate your ideas quickly and efficiently - all while still being remote and not having to come to our office, saving time overall.
It's also how we can help deliver most final videos to clients in 14 days or less on average.
As always at Vid Monster, each client gets 3 rounds of edits, ensuring that the end product is exactly what you want and how you want it edited. This is just one way we make video easy and amazing for you!

Every Tuesday at 2pm CST, our CEO & Creative Director Sam Kirby goes on a live stream to talk about a topic in video that you might find helpful or educational.
This week, he shared about 4K videos and why we shoot in that format, as opposed to other formats of lower quality, like 1080p.
You can always go back and watch the video here.
Meanwhile, we have some handy-dandy visual aids to show you.
This simple chart shows the relation of the various image sizes that are traditionally found in video.
Once upon a time, each size what the latest and greatest, so you can see how far we've come with technology in video over the past 18-19 years since the DVD player came out around 1999.
And why are there the numbers and the letter p included in the size names?? Where does that come from?
The "p" stands for progressive scan and are basically lines that move in video.
Can you see the lines here in an old video of a man riding a horse?
The numbers in the size types are basically shorthand for the total number of pixels per horizontal and vertical frame.
Over time, the primary focus is on the horizontal frame, which is why we ended up with simplified terms like, "1080p" and "4k". You may also notice that the resolution for "4k" is actually 3840x2160, so this number is rounded up obviously.
Let's see a side by side comparison.
It's almost as if you were looking at an image during various stages of removing your glasses, or taking an eye exam at the optometrist. Think about how a higher resolution has become better for our eyes over time, too!
At Vid Monster, we always shoot in 4k. Every project we complete, unless instructed otherwise but that isn't really a request we have, we make sure that all of our final deliveries are high quality. And that high quality just isn't in resolution, it's in each area of the shooting and editing process we take care of for our clients.
If you have any questions about 4k or want to discuss getting your video project shot in 4k, reach out to us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 270-681-7810. We'd love to talk with you.
