How we price our videos

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 one thing we do know is that we like to think of ourselves as being affordable when compared to other video companies. 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.

First the boring bit

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 a client's requirements and include any other additional expenses that may be required. So the less complex the video, the lower the cost. We price house tours & house marketing videos differently to those prices listed below as these are considered less complex than recording business videos.

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. For us the 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, but we have tried to give indicative prices for a 'typical' video.


Some indicative prices for a 'typical' video

We say indicative, given the variables possible but it can work both ways. E.g. a one shot video, at 10 secs, 30 sec or even a minute long, could be quite straight forward and therefore be cheaper than indicated. Or you might live in the south of England. For us that would only mean additional travel time and expenses.

We should say that we always give a firm quotation on receipt of an official brief / specification anyway so it's always worth to make an enquiry but the following should allow a client to have an idea of likely costs and we are not VAT registered.

A 'typical' video project
We like to start all of our videos with some preparation work before visiting a site in the north west, hence the deposit. This might be looking at what a client's competitors are doing or similar industries on the video marketing front. We might take a client's logo and create a video thumbnail, build some preliminary titles if required and maybe create a Call to Action (CTA) end screen. Certainly we like to search for the correct music which cannot be underestimated either and can take many hours at times.

And then we will have the day of the shoot itself where we will travel to site, somewhere in north-west England, record the footage before returning back to our office to decant the footage on to the PC.

The subsequent days on the project for us are bang in the middle of the editing process and includes reviewing all of the footage taken, 'cutting away' the unusable parts and arranging into folders.  And if audio from the visit has been recorded then this too needs reviewing and arranging so that it can be used.

The time spent in the edit varies from job to job and each project comes with it's own challenges and varying number of hours required to complete it. For us we will have a vision of what the video should look like in our heads and it is a case of recreating this in our editing software which is where the fun lies!

It is very rare to 'get a video right' first time and many hours are usually spent tweaking a number of things before we are satisfied with the final version and allow the final product to be rendered and uploaded to the cloud for delivery to the client.

  • Additional operators
  • Work outside the north west
  • Strange working hours
  • Multiple visits
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 in these times, commissioning a video has never been more relevant. After carrying out our own research we believe that our pricing 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 who 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 their 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.
