Our rates are not just competitive, we offer an unbelievable bargain for the quality and professionalism we offer. Remember, your goal is the end product. As you can tell from our introductory video and other samples, we have the expertise to produce digital video consistent with what the big boys can do. And we can do this for you without breaking the bank.
For comparison purposes, nationwide in the US, production of a 30-second local TV advertisement can run up to $15,000. National ads can easily run in the mid six figure range (over $300k). Our typical cost for 30-second ads for internal expenses are under $2,500. Considering the quality, this is a downright steal. Of course your project(s) may be more than this, especially if other expenses, such as hired talent, music licensing fees, etc., are required. However, this will still be a bargain compared to what you would get from our competitors.
We work on a $125 per hour (**) flat rate accrued in half day increments (4-hour minimums) each calendar day worked. This includes all owned equipment and the clock starts prior to load-up at our facility for on-location production and related work including but not necessarily limited to Consulting, Meetings, Videography, Photography, Audio/PA, etc. The same rate and minimums apply to consulting, editing and post production work performed in our office or facility.
A limited amount (up to 4-hours) of Pre-Production meeting, planning, consulting, etc. will be provided gratis for each project. Pre-Production in excess of the 4-hours will accrue at the $125 per hour flat rate.
Talent, Location fees, Music and other Licensing fees, Rental Equipment, etc. will usually be extra and will accrue at Cost plus a 10% Handling Fee (**).
We have a simple three point payment plan.
- A retainer equaling ⅓ of the estimated total project cost will be required and is due prior to completion of the Pre-Production phase. We will provide you with an estimate during Pre-Production.
- Interim progress payments are expected to be made in a consistent manner (biweekly or monthly) on lengthy projects.
- Without exception, final payment of the complete balance is due in full on the day of the project’s completion.
