Video Transcript: How Much Does A Video Cost?
A video’s cost is calculated by determining the scope of your production. Now, every project is different, so we always have to start by identifying the elements necessary to effectively communicate and deliver your message to your target audience.
Here’s a list of the common considerations:
Let’s start with Pre-production:
How much planning is necessary?
Will we scout locations?
Do you already have a script, or will we develop a script for you?
Does your project require storyboards.
Next we look at Production:
How many locations are necessary?
How many production days do we need?
What does your production package look like? This means determining which type of cameras, lighting & sound equipment are best suited to your project.
Then we determine the size of the production Crew -exactly who do we need to do our best work?
And who would you like to help you look your best, a hair and makeup artist, set stylist, or a wardrobe assistant?
Then we move on to Post Production.
How much time will we need for digital editing?
Does your project require animation or motion graphics?
Are color correction & special effects needed to complete your look.
Last, we calculate time needed for digital video file preparation, upload and delivery of your approved video production.
Now, It sounds like a lot to consider, but after we’ve met, discussed your project and available budget, often we’re crossing items off the list. Reviewing these considerations with you allows us to prepare a proposal that accurately determines the cost of your video. In most cases you’ll receive your proposal in a week or less. So, when you’re asking the question, How much does a video cost?, we’re asking ourselves how can we help you meet your business goals on time and on budget.
