How do I budget for a video?
Best advice: just call us to discuss what you’re thinking about creating! It takes a conversation to uncover some of the most important information we need to create a ballpark budget. After talking with you, we will give you an estimate based on several factors, including
- the number of days we will plan to shoot
- the number of times we will travel to your destination
- the anticipated length of the finished product
We know that plans also change in mid-stream, so we’ll tell you up-front how to budget if you want to add days of shooting, length to the video, etc. Our goal is to never surprise you about a budget item! If/when you talk with other video production companies, don’t accept a generic budget based on “dollars/minute” of production. A good production company will want to ask you lots of questions to get to know your institution’s or company’s needs to tailor the budget estimate specifically to you.
