Video creators use moving images to tell unique stories, and professionals often need to tell those stories on a deadline. For Torin Simpson, Taylor Jackson, Jordy Vandeput, and Anna and Chris Hutton, reliable equipment is key to completing their clients’ projects on time. They all need an editing system with a processor that won’t hold them back.
Since upgrading to an Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X-Series processor based system, these storytellers can focus on the work they do and not their workstation’s performance.
The photo-video couple who renders thousands of love stories
Anna and Chris Hutton are the co-owners of Necrania’s Dream Art Studio in Chico, California. This happily married couple uses video and photography to capture the magic of their clients’ wedding day.
Their business is rapidly growing, and it’s common for them to be working on a few weddings at a time. On top of managing multiple projects, Anna and Chris have been known to shoot up to 3,000 images for just one wedding! That’s a lot of photos to process. Still, the pair puts an enormous amount of time into every project they do because they want to make every project special for their clients.
“We just want to be creative and get the job done all while telling the best story,” Chris Hutton says. Anna and Chris’ last machine wasted a lot of their time because of slow processing. “ … we got used to waiting on the computer,” says Anna. The Intel(R) Core(™) i9 processor has cut out the wait time, allowing the couple to speed up and simplify their workflow. “…we don’t have to wait. We can continue creating beautiful stories,” says Chris.
Their demanding workload can be tough to manage, but the Huttons never miss a beat. With the Intel(R) Core(™) i9 processor, they have all the tools they need to complete their projects the way they want to — and keep up with their workflow.
Don’t settle for editing proxies
Speaking of workflows, the Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X-series processor and Intel(R) Optane(™) Memory have revolutionized professional wedding videographer Taylor Jackson’s workflow entirely. “We create so much data as we shoot … I used to have to edit with proxies,” Jackson admits. He thankfully now has the rendering speeds he needs for the work he is doing for his clients — newly-wed couples whom he doesn’t dare disappoint with missed deadlines! “I’m hitting those deadlines every time,” Jackson says.
Like the Huttons, Taylor is a wedding photographer and videographer, but he also runs a YouTube channel. For all the work that Taylor does, it’s imperative he can share his work with the world without having to sacrifice creativity in the editing room. Jackson currently does work for about 50 weddings a year. He also travels the world to create content for his YouTube channel; he’s been to places like New York City, San Francisco, Tokyo and even Antarctica! He collects tons of footage, and all of it needs to be edited in post. Good thing he’s no longer forced to edit with proxies.
A good processor allows creators to think outside the box
Jordy Vandeput, creator of Cinecom.net, also has a presence on YouTube. Cinecom.net’s YouTube channel has amassed almost 450,000 subscribers in just a few years. The channel aims to educate its audience about how they can produce commercial videos on a budget through online tutorial videos as well as courses and blogs. They do segments like Copycat Friday, where they find a creative way to re-create certain effects or editing techniques from a popular film or music video. “We always try to think outside the box,” Jordy says.
Jordy tells us he made a “very conscious” decision to get the Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X-series processor because it’s “architecture is future proof.” After all, what good is a piece of hardware when it has to be replaced in a year? That way, he can stay focused on the next great video idea.
Jordy also enjoys the faster processing speeds and knows the processor’s power will get him through his demanding workload for years to come. “You have to rely on it. If something breaks today, then we won’t make our deadline,” Jordy says. This processor gives him peace of mind and allows Cinecom.net to be as creative as it wants to be.
Tell the best story possible with the right tech
Torin Simpson is the founder and owner of Beard God Media House and works as a one-man band on the daily. He does everything on his own, from pre-production to post-production. “To tell the best possible story — every single time — is incredibly stressful and trying,” says Torin, “ … that’s why I need the most powerful processor I can get, with the most RAM I can give my software.”
The Intel(R) Core(™) i9 processor has proved to be that “powerful processor” Torin needed. “I’m a storyteller, but I still have to meet deadlines,” Torin says, “and with the Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X-series processor, I’m hitting those deadlines every time.” Torin easily hits a terabyte a day during production — he shoots in 4K ProRes. On older systems, Torin wasted hours waiting for his 4K video files to render.
The Intel Core i9 X-series processor has changed the way these creatives work
Torin, Jordy, Taylor, and the Huttons all use Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X series processors — and they’re extremely happy with what it’s done for their workflows.
The Intel(R) Core(™) i9 X-Series processor has revolutionized the way these creatives do their work. Not only has it given them the power they need to edit their content; it also allows them to be as creative as they want without worrying about whether or not their workstation can keep up.
