A video can be as short or as long as a client wants depending on how and where it is to be used. And because every project is different this means that generic prices are a little bit tricky, in the same way that a builder doesn't have a price for building 'a house' given the infinite number of variables there are. In our case these variables that affect the cost could be the length of video required, the number of recording locations to be visited or the number of site visits that might be required to name just a few.
Some people are under the illusion that after recording all the footage, back at the office the video simply falls out of the camera, music gets added to it and it's done. Not at all. We would say that it is back at the office where the video work really starts. As the expression goes, it's all in the edit.
We base our fixed price quotes on how long we anticipate a project will take from start to finish, based on a client's requirements and include any other additional expenses that may be required. So the less complex the video, the lower the cost.
A client just wanting to deliver a short piece to camera or just requires a few clips for a project, a long continuous shot, like a time lapse, that can't be pigeonholed into any the above are quite simple and wouldn't cost too much. Recording & editing buildings such as property, as a random example, can often take less time than a 'typical' video as would be series of products all recorded back to back meaning, on the face of it, and again not too expensive.
We are also able, if a client wanted, to find and use stock footage to create their video. We are also able to take a client's photographs and turn them into slideshow video thus saving on recording costs and spending just a few hours editing them.
Whatever the requirement, there are always options that we can propose and firmly believe that it is worth having that discussion with us first.
