About Video Quality Control. . .

When first deciding to make these video workshops, we had a decision to make: produce them professionally at a very high cost or produce them ourselves at lower cost. Because our goal was to disseminate as much play therapy information as possible to mental health professionals with limited budgets, we decided on the latter. Each video workshop is 2 to 6 hours long, yet we’ve been able to keep the costs under $150. The “trade-off” for this is a slight decrease in video quality and rough cuts and transitions. Many of our videos are recordings of our live webinars and therefore provide an experience similar to the webinars without the ability to interact with the speaker. Viewers have consistently commented that the quality of information on them is top-notch.
