the difference between “high res” and “web res” files


We’ve received some confusion about the various files we send our clients and which is for what.
Here is a simple breakdown of the 2 types of files we send after your shoot:

Web ready files (.mp4)
These are usually sent via a Vimeo Link. Once an edit is finalized, we encourage our clients to download the web video file if one wants to upload the video to another account/online location.

High res files (.mp4)
These are usually sent via WeTransfer or by mail via a returnable thumb drive. Once all editing is finalized, we prepare both the final edits and all the raw footage into high bit-rate H.264 MP4 files (that can be played on any computer) for the Client’s archives (on an external hard drive dedicated for video), both for archival purposes and for possible future editing. If the Client were to edit/work with this video on their own or with another editor, these are the files that should be used.
We always recommend that everyone get high res files from their videographers when investing in documentation! AND we recommend backing up your video archives in an additional location.
Check out more info on that on our Blog.


LRP had the honor of making the fundraising video for Rachael Maddox‘s Sex After Trauma. Rachael, a trauma resolution educator, coach, guide, and author, shares her own story of healing in her new book. To give yourself an idea of how she can help bring catharsis and how you can help fund her work, watch this short video!


Rainforest Action Network knows it–Radical is necessary! Take a peek at the video we shot and edited of RAN’s REVEL 2017 annual fundraiser which includes speeches by Dallas Goldtooth, Amy Goodman, and Lindsey Allen. LRP is so grateful for our longtime relationship with these movers & shakers and for the vital work they do!

Did you know that we also make crowdfunding campaign and other promotional videos? Crowdfunding has been a very successful means of raising money for many entrepreneurs and artists! I wanted to share with you a few recent campaign videos of some meaningful campaigns this season – check them out!

Nourish2Thrive’s Window Aquaponics:

Author Rachael Maddox’s new book “Sex After Trauma”

Embodiment Project’s “Ancient Children” performance project

Smuin Ballet’s annual shoe campaign:

As part of his installation, Look at a cat when it stalks a bird; or a beast when it wants to escape, Liam Everett invited Hope Mohr to hold a weekly open rehearsal at the SFMoMA as a way to consider questions regarding the nature of practice. Take a peek and chew on a response!

As a baby is born, so is a new mother. Kimberly Ann Johnson‘s book The Fourth Trimester (published by Shambhala Publications) details how to care for the postpartum mother. The task is essential, and she will guide you through it. Loren made this short video, so take a peek if you are (or if someone you know is) crossing the threshold into motherhood or if you’re just open to the wisdom of the mama.

Music: Dan Phillipson

Featuring: Wendy Taylor, Maria Slocum, Centehua Sage, Elizabeth Griswold, Kristin Hauser, Thomas Hauser

Shoes are a vital part of the dancers’ experience at Smuin Ballet. Not only do they provide support, but each type of shoe helps the dancer step into her character; you could say it has transformative powers. And believe it or not, a performer might wear 10 different pairs in one ballet! So each year the company raises funds for this essential part of work. If you’d like to help them put their best foot forward watch this video we directed and contribute to their campaign!

Loren had the privilege of being able to return to footage from a series of performances in 2011 by Avy K Productions/Erika Tsimbrovsky held at SOMArts in San Francisco and create some shorts from it!

We are so excited to share this promo video we shot and edited for long time client, Embodiment Project. EP’s latest work, “Ancient Children”, is inspired by  Shakti Butler‘s film “Healing Justice” about how restorative justice can disrupt the school to prison pipeline. Artistic Director, Nicole Klaymoon, and her dancer collaborators talk about how they brought forth their own stories and also embody those of others to make this powerful piece. “Ancient Children” previews throughout the west coast in the upcoming months and premieres at ODC in June 2018.

For its tenth anniversary season, Hope Mohr Dance responds to the current gentrification problem in the Bay Area with Precarious. A series, it began as a site specific work. It then re-framed and continued in a similar generative process, showing at CounterPulse with a walking tour and Mohr’s signature intense and tactile thematic exploration. Check out this highlight edit!
