Wow, that gives "online" editing a whole new meaning.

But hey, having all my interviews transcribed in 24 to 48 hours? I'd love that. Last time, my interns needed many weeks to get it all done...

Your poor interns ;)

We really try to be as accommodating as possible to the needs of our clients. If you are in a really big hurry and need something done in 24-48 hours, we will rush to have it at the most convenient time for you.

Yes, the online tool sure puts a spin on things. I would love for you guys to check it out and tell me what you think of it because it is a relatively new tool that we have designed and we are still working to improve it in anyway we can, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You can actually play around with it a bit without registering by going to www.RoughCutOnline.com and click on "Learn more" and then click on "try it now".

Suzy Spivey

I forward your post to a great filmaker that I know who has already visited the Pyramids
and also participated in workshops.

I have traveled with him to Peru to work on the Machu Pichu ruins
and it was an excellent project.

He has much experience and I know he will be contacting you soon.

Sincerely
Carmita
