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. We base our quotes on how long we anticipate a project will take from start to finish, based on a client's requirements.

How we price our videos

A video can be as short or as long as you want depending on how and where it is to be used. We base our quotes on the time we anticipate to spend on site to obtain the footage in addition to our assessment of how long we anticipate the edit to take along with any other additional expenses that may be required. So the less complex the video, the cheaper it is going to be.

As 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 number of variables that include, but are not limited to, the length of video required, the number of recording locations to be visited, the number of visits that might be required and so on.

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, gets music added to it and it's done. Not at all. We would say that it is back at the computer where the video work really starts. As the expression goes, it's all in the edit.

And music is such an important part, we think, for any video. We believe that the sound you hear is just as important as the visuals you see. It's easily 50/50 in our opinion which is why we spend a lot of time choosing the right track to for a project. Sometimes we get lucky and it's chosen in moments but generally it is not so quick. It usually takes a few hours to browse and select the perfect track for a video and all of this needs to be accounted for in our quote to you.

Please find our charges below and what they include:

Our charge for a single operator is £160 per day in the North-West

  • Equipment preparation
  • Recording on site by one operator in the north-west
  • Travel time to and from site
  • Editing including purchase of licenced music if required
  • Colour correction/grading & simple title creation
  • 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 you get a minimum of three quotes for your project and that you talk to us first for your own and bespoke quotation but we think that now in these 'Covid times', commissioning your own video has never been cheaper. After carrying out our own research we believe that our day rate is extremely competitive hence we promote ourselves as being affordable. But it might not be for every business, that's fine, we understand that. We'll be the first to agree that recording and posting something from your '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 you want to convey to your audience/clients that matters and what you 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 your video recording and video editing slot, but also covers things like us 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 your video. Should you subsequently change your mind and not want a video, the deposit is non refundable as we will have expended some time in preparation work already.

After the video has been rendered and uploaded to the cloud, which may be temporarily watermarked, we will make the it available for your perusal by sending you a download link. We do request the balance though before making the video available again via the download link one working day after payment has been received.
