“How much does a video production cost?” This has to be one of the toughest questions to answer for any video production company. For us at the receiving end this question is a classic case of, “how long is a piece of string?”
The video production process is broken up into three categories: Pre-production, Production, Post production. While we work on all phases of production from shooting the principal images to the final cut of the video we have a range of clients with different needs: some clients just need a few photos, or they want raw video only, others just need editing services. However most of our clients want a short video promoting their work. So, we divided our media pricing into two categories. Specific service rates for those who just need shooting, or editing, or script writing; and video packages for clients who want to have us produce a video for their organization. Just scroll to the bottom if you want to order a video package.
