Of course! Sometimes it’s good just to talk through some ideas. You might even find out you don’t absolutely need a video at this point! Perhaps you’re better off putting the money towards some SEO or Facebook ads for the moment. Don’t worry, we
know what it’s like to be a small business, you need to make every dollar count, and
we’ll make sure you get the right advice that suits you.
Videos come in all shapes and sizes and are costed accordingly. Some simple
property videos can cost as little as $600, while high end TV commercials can cost
tens of thousands. As a ballpark though, most mid-range videos cost between $5-10
thousand. However the thing to note is, we’re always willing to work within your
budget. We can help make suggestions ensuring you get the most bang for your
buck. If you’d like a more in depth exploration on how much videos cost have a look

While we can produce videos in a few days if needed, usually allow for around 3-4
weeks from the first phone call to final video delivery. However depending on what
type of video, the length of time may vary. Larger productions that involve scripts and
talents typically take longer because we need to ensure our clients are 100% happy
before we head into shoot.
Going on shoot is where all the action happens, it’s when we rock up to location with
our cameras, lights and crew. While some videos can take days to shoot, typical
shoots usually go for 1 day.
Any production, whether it is a corporate video, TV commercial, TV show or movie, can be broken down into 3 distinctive periods: Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production.
The process before the shoot day is known as Pre-Production and is a crucial stage because it’s where we help our clients craft their story and decide on the look and feel of the video. It’s where we decide on the concept: what do we want to say? What’s at the core of the story? It’s where we decide what talents to use. Are they going to be internal staff or hired actors? What are they going to be wearing? What are they going to say? Where are we going to shoot? This is really important to lock down before the shoot day because that’s where most of the budget is spent, on the equipment, cast and crew.
You’ve decided on the style, locked down the script, chosen your talent, decided on the location and prayed for good weather, now the big day comes where you marshal the troops and head into shoot. Being on set really is a magical experience. There’s a crackle in the atmosphere when the cameras roll, it’s where all the effort in pre-production pays off and you see your ideas come to life.
This is where our editors sit down with the hours of raw footage, sift through the bloopers and craft the story. It’s where we select the most beautiful shots, find the moments, the best soundbites and put it to music. We then come down to your office with some bags of popcorn, dim the lights and show you the masterpiece. Of course, it’s not done yet. You may prefer a different music track or a different soundbite, we’ll work with you until it’s something you absolutely love.
