Let's say you want a promotional video for your company but you don't know where to start and have no video elements. We'll meet with you in person or over the phone for a free consultation to discuss your project and get an idea of your goals, your audience, your style preferences, shoot schedule if necessary, deadlines, and your budget.
Our approach to video production is audio first which usually means a script that will become narration. We'll use your script if you have one, or write one up for you and forward it to you for approval. Once we have the voice over recorded we'll match it with a few royalty-free music choices for you to select from.
After we have the audio edited together, we'll start synchronizing the visuals. Typically we'll create the first 10 to 20 seconds then render it to a video clip for your review to make sure you like how it's coming together. We'll make any adjustments you want and continue on till we have a completed first draft for your review. Most of the time things are good and it's a wrap. The rest of the time there might be a misspelled name or some other minor edit. We'll fix it and get it back to you for approval.
We've done hundreds of projects like this for clients all over the world. Many of these videos are completed within 2 weeks for as little as $300 - $500. More elaborate projects requiring more time (time = money) with multiple location shoots, more collaborators, and or more special effects will start well over $1,000.
We work this way for most of our video or graphic design projects. If you like this kind of process, we are probably the right fit for you.
We are not a good fit if you:
- Change or add to the project along the way and aren't willing to change the budget accordingly.
- Fail to answer questions in a timely manner but won't adjust your deadline.
- Will not pay for the project as soon as it's completed.
- Have many decision makers who won't review and make editing choices together before submitting those changes to us.
- Have a pornographic, anti-Christian or anti-American project.
If your project is beyond the scope of what we do, we will let you know up front and refer you elsewhere if we can. Otherwise, we look forward to discussing your project and helping you reach your goals with video, voice talent, graphic design or online marketing.
