Video Pricing

We get asked, 'How much does video production cost?' or 'Is it expensive to make a video?' Well it all depends on what is required but we like to think of ourselves as being affordable when compared to other video companies.

How we price our videos

A video can be as short or as long as a client wants depending on how and where it is to be used. We base our fixed price quotes on how long we anticipate a project will take from start to finish, based on the client's requirements along with any other additional expenses that may be required. So the less complex the video, the lower the cost.

And because  every project is different this means that generic prices are not really possible, just like a builder doesn't have a price for 'a house' given the infinite number of variables there are. In our case the length of video, the number of recording locations to be visited, the number of visits that might be required are some just to name a few.

Some people have been under the illusion that after shooting with the camera and 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 would like to say that the number of hours spent on site plays just a small part of the video making process. We can spend anything between 15 to 30 hours (or £300.00 to £600.00) on a 'typical' project in total, which for video is extremely good. Given that the living wage rate is roughly £9.00 to £11.00/hour depending on where you live in the UK, we believe our current videography rate of £20.00/hour, covering not least the thousands of pounds worth of equipment we've invested in, is extremely competitive. The cost of the video needs to be looked at in terms of both the additional sales that are anticipated to be brought in as well as the benefit it brings to the brand as a whole and perception of the business.

Our day rate charge for a single operator in the North-West includes:
  • Concept and preparation work
  • Travel to and from site
  • Recording on site by one operator in the north-west
  • Editing work
  • Colour correction/grading / titles / graphics
  • Delivery
Specific requirements: Variable
We can include the cost of additional requirements you might have within our quotation such as:
  • Professional voice over work
  • Specific motion graphics
  • Work outside the north west
  • Strange working hours
We would always suggest that a client receives a minimum of three quotes for their project and that they talk to us first for their own and bespoke quotation but think that, given we are all going to have to start living with Covid, commissioning a video has never been more relevant. After carrying out our own research we believe that our day rate is extremely competitive, hence we promote ourselves as being affordable.

We understand that a professional video might not be for suitable for every business, that's fine. We'll be the first to agree that recording and posting something from a 'phone can be just as effective for promotional purposes when used in the right context. At the end of the day it's all about the message that a business wants to convey to their viewers or customers that matters and what they are happy with.

Payment options

To proceed we would be grateful to receive payment via BACS, cheque, cash or Paypal. What we do insist on though is that a 20% deposit is paid upfront. Not only does this secure a video recording and video editing slot, but it also allows us to set up the project timeline and start searching for and obtaining music if required, risk assessment work should aerial footage be required and not least, the initial time we like to spend coming up with a concept for a video. And after the video has been rendered and uploaded to the cloud, we will make it available by sending out a link from which it can be downloaded.

What next?

For a client that wants to start their video journey with us, we would ask that they get in touch so that we can get collaborating and make a start on the epic, new production!  Or to learn even more beforehand, have a read of our Blog where we explain what we do before a shoot and what a client should be doing before commissioning a video. Thank you.
