About the Company
Swindler Cave Studios is owned and operated by Michael Swindler, its sole proprietor. Videos are shot on a combination of rented and owned cameras with audio captured using discrete audio recorders for superior sound. Post-production is done on a bespoke workstation built in 2016 using state-of-the-art components. Post-production tools include Adobe's Creative Cloud suite (e.g. Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Audition, etc.) and Blender, among others.
About the Owner
I have a BS in Information Technology with a specialization in Multimedia and Visual Communication. I work full-time as an engineer and have a busy family of five. The studio remains very much a side business for me.
I started making movies in 2000 as a hobby and soon purchased professional video editing software. After making a few photo slideshows for clients I acquired high definition (HD) camcorders and in 2007 made the business official. I produced several wedding videos and websites (a service I no longer offer due to the ever-evolving nature of the Internet) before my own family started to grow.
In 2012 my workplace began to take advantage of my skills, so I now produce 2-4 videos for them per year. Due to time constraints I now take on only a few projects a year at most.
