How much does it cost?
With over 15 years of experience and creating hundreds of videos I would say most of our videos fall between $10K – $30K. I understand this answer isn’t much help as you start researching video production companies, but until we have a better understanding of what you want to achieve it’s almost impossible to quote a price. The price ultimately comes down to the creative treatment and your budget.
How long will it take?
Plan on one to two months. The most time-intensive step is pre-production. If we carefully plan out what we want to accomplish early on, the shoot and editing are actually pretty quick.
Do you offer 3D animation?
No, but there are a lot of great companies and freelancers that do. Check them out.
My iPhone takes great video, why should we hire you?
Current phones take amazing video. In fact, we have included iPhone video in some of our productions! Great video isn't about the kind of equipment that is used, it's about telling an engaging story that will grab the attention of the viewer.
Currently, though, cell phone video can't compare to the visual quality of cinema cameras or even higher-end DSLR and mirrorless cameras. It simply doesn't have the hardware to look as good..yet!
Do we need to hire actors, I hear they are expensive?
If the creative treatment includes “talent” then we always suggest hiring professional actors. In the end, hiring professional talent can save time and money, and the performance will be more believable.
Do you travel?
Yes, our team has filmed all across the US and Canada.
