How much do you charge?
That answer varies project by project. If you only need us to shoot and don't need any editing work done, that price will be lower than if you need us to film an entire project, edit and such. If you only need us to edit footage, that price will differ as well. Message us through the Contact page with details of your project and we're happy to lay everything out for you and give you an affordable quote!
What's your day rate/hourly rate?
This answer also varies by project. The price will depend on how complex the shoot is, how long the shoot is, if travel is involved, how much gear will be needed, etc. We're happy to go over the details of your project with you and get you a reasonable quote on this!
What kind of video can I get with a $2,500 budget?
Our project costs will be based on the details of each situation but to give you a general idea, a $2,500 budget could cover a 2-minute video, 1-hour shoot, with music underlay and logo graphic at the end.
Do you sell raw footage?
Yes and no.
If you only want us to shoot your video and provide you with the clips, we'll charge our day rate plus an additional fee for ownership rights to the raw footage that will depend on how much footage there is.
If we shoot do an entire video for you from start to finish, editing included, we typically do not include ownership rights to the raw footage because we're ONLY selling you the finished video product. IF you want access to the raw footage, we can chat more in our initial discussions and agreements!
I already have video shot I just need an editor. Can you do just editing services?
Yes! With just editing services, our rates will be dramatically lower than what I typically charge for shooting + editing. Please email us with details of what your video is, how long you want the final product to be, how we can access the video you have, if you want music incorporated into it, any logos you might want included, and the overall tone/feel you're going for.
What is your turnaround time?
We promise to get your video back to you within two weeks of the final filming date. We typically get things done much quicker than this but we like to give ourselves some wiggle room just in case. If you're on a deadline and need it sooner than that, just let us know and we can work something out.
What type of equipment do you use?
We use DLSR cameras and tripods, several different lenses for each camera, a GVM light set, a ring light, several wireless RODE mics, a gimbal, a shotgun RODE mic, a GVM slider, a GoPro Hero 8, an EVO Lite drone and more to come!
Do you do drone video and graphics?
Yes! We have our own drone that we can use to capture video for you. There is an additional fee added to the total project cost if a drone is used, just FYI. We can also input graphics and animations if requested.
Who owns the rights to the video?
Once we sell you a finished video product, YOU own the rights to the final video that you are able to use on your social media/website. You cannot SELL our video as your own, however.
If we shoot it for you, we own the rights but we can sell you the rights to the video if you want the raw footage.
If you already have the video in house and you just want us to edit it, YOU own the rights to that video.
What types of videos do you make?
A whole range of them that you can find of the "Types of Video" tab on this website. Storytelling is where our passions lie, but we can also do marketing videos, hiring videos, promo videos, or just shooting some basic B-roll for you. Feel free to email us through the Contact page and weI'll let you know if it's in our skillset to get done for you!
What happens if I have to cancel/reschedule a shoot with you?
Life happens. We get it. Please give us at least 24 hours advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule a shoot and there is no penalty fee. If you cancel with less than 24 hours until the shoot, there is a cancellation fee that will be determined in the written agreement.
How many edits can I request?
You can ask us to make as many edits as you'd like within a reasonable time frame set by written agreement. We want you to be completely thrilled with the final video.
However, once I send you the final video and everything is signed, sealed + delivered, no additional edits can be made without an additional $150 fee for a newly edited version.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We take cash, credit card, check, Venmo or PayPal!
Do you offer workshops on storytelling?
Yes! We've done a number of workshops for organizations already on the Art of Video Storytelling where we walk you through how to find and tell your story, show examples of successful videos that told a heartfelt story, and teach you how to optimize your videos on social media to meet your goal or promote your call to action. We are happy to do this for public or private events for your organization. Email us for rates!
