Our Work

Sound for Film & Video

Sound is a big part of what we do! Whether it’s providing the microphones and audio mix for a “live-to-tape” interview, location sound for a film or video shoot, or audio post-production to “fix” the sound of your production… we can do that… and more! Audio production, in all its many forms, is a part of every video on this page.

The videos on this page will give you a good idea of the quality of sound and video production you can expect from James Alburger and Cigma Media. Click on a category to go directly to that section:

We work with every client to determine the best approach for each project. Many of our small business clients on a budget will opt for our pre-produced “Ready-to-Go” videos or a fully customized animated marketing video with voiceover and music.

Take a look (and listen) at the videos we’ve produced for some of our clients. Then give us a call at 858.484.0220 to find out how we can help with your video or film production. For full screen, click the 4-arrows at the lower right corner of any video. Press ESC to exit full screen mode.

Full-length Film, Video and Audio Projects

Telling a story effectively can take some time – whether it’s through sound only or film/video! Full-length feature films and corporate video projects often require long hours on set and even longer hours in post-production. They can be challenging, but in the end, they are some of the most enjoyable productions to work on. And the fact that many of our film and video clients have won numerous awards for these projects makes us feel very good about what we do.

Thanks again for everything! Oh wow, you are way more than a “small part” of what we are doing. You are the magical ingredient that makes it so special!

After hosting film festivals for ten years, I’ve learned that the best writing, best acting, best images can be ruined or enhanced with editing. People who spend so much time and money on their project and then the editor messes up the sound or the edits are sloppy… You, my friend, are greatly appreciated!! And I enjoy working with you as well!

Movie Trailers

Movie trailers provide viewers with a short summary of what a film or video production is like. They are also used to “pitch” a film for funding or distribution. Trailers are often produced after the film has been shot, but before post-production is complete. Sometimes the actual film is never produced.

Full Length Marketing Videos & Demos

Professional demos and marketing videos will often be 3-10 minutes in length and will require substantial pre-production, production and post-production editing time.

Videos of this sort may also involve live action on-camera, interviews, on-location shoots, or a green screen studio shoot, although some can be produced simply by editing video provided by the client. Additional costs may be in the area of hiring additional crew, customized music, actors, set construction, lighting, sound design and more.

This type of video is best for established businesses that want to focus on branding or that need to build a professional image through their video marketing.

Web & Theatrical Commercials

Website commercials running longer than one minute can be a combination of whiteboard, infographic, live-action video, photo images, video effects, and on-camera talent.

This type of production is far more complex than a basic whiteboard or infographic video and is best for larger businesses who are already using video or have the budget for broadcast-quality video production or for businesses that want to establish a strong brand.

“How to…” Eplainer Video

Full-length Explainer videos are generally longer than a website commercial. This type of video will teach about something, provide training, explain the details of a process or give the viewer other necessary information.

These generally run 2 minutes or longer and will often require additional production time. A shorter variation of the Explainer video can be very effective as an on-going series of videos that offer tips or suggestions designed to promote aspects of your business.
