Eighteen Years of Video with Walter S. and wife,  Karen M.

S&M Video Productions began around Christmas 1986, when we bought our first video camera.. Since then, we have done many original productions, as well as a few professional projects.

Contrary to what the name might imply (it's our initials), our videos are all "G" rated, even though some of them are pretty strange. Our first video camera and editing recorders were Panasonic VHS industrial grade gear, complete with an editing controller. For graphics and special effects, we used an Amiga 2000 computer. In 1988 we published an article about our video editing system in Radio-Electronics magazine, which was featured on the cover. Currently, we use an all digital system centered around our dedicated video computer.

S&M Video Productions now has a dedicated Yahoo Group! If you live in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, and are interested in original video production, check us out at:

We also have an  Audio and Video Conversion Service to convert your old VHS tapes and photos to DVD, and audio cassettes and LPs to audio CD.

We also run the  Cajun Clicker's Digital Video Special Interest Group


 This is our analog editing system, built around an Amiga 2000 computer. We originally set this up in Knoxville in 1987. In 1988 we moved everything to Baton Rouge.


This is our current, all digital, editing system. Everything is built around our editing computer, Captain Video. We built this P4, 2.4 GHz machine in June, 2003 with the help of ACOM of Louisiana

This is our latest arrival, the only video camera with a built in warp core!  

The   Canon GL2

In all of our productions, Walter serves as technical director and primary videographer, and Karen as secondary videographer, original music composer, and video editor. Karen directs most of our work.
