There are a lot of factors that will effect how much it will cost to shoot your video. Be prepared to answer these questions before we give you a quote for your video shoot.

What type of video are you trying to produce?

Personal or Business? Personal videos are weddings, birthday parties, family videos, etc... they tend to be longer productions. Business videos are typically shorter productions that focus on marketing a product, service or organization.

Do you need us to record video or take photos for your video project or do you already have the assets needed to produce your video?

Our production rates are based on hourly, half-day and full-day rates. For some clients the only service they want from us is to shoot video and give them the raw footage for their editors to work with. Other clients already have assets and need us to edit the project for them. We charge an hourly editing rate for this type of work.

Do you have an idea or concept for your video?

Is there a video that you can show us on YouTube that is similar to what you want done?

Do you want to shoot in our Green Screen studio or at your location?

The benefit of shooting in our studio is that we can customize the background/environment that you are presenting your video from. You may mot have a very presentable office or no office at all and the studio is a good fit. If you do have a great facility that you think will show well on camera then shooting on-location can provide for very cinematic visuals.

Is your budget more or less than $3k?

We are not a cheap video solution so if you are price shopping we put ourselves in to the Mercedes/BMW category.There are more expensive video projects that would compare to a Ferrari or Lamborghini and there are the budget friendly projects priced like Honda and Toyota. To be noticed on the roads you need to pay a little more and the same goes with video.

Who is your target audience?

Do you need to recruit better employees? Do you want more people to sign up for a conference? Do you want to demonstrate what your product does? Defining your target viewer helps us mold your message for maximum effectiveness.
