We often find our clients have similar questions with regards to the video production process. This is why we have listed below some of the most common ones along with a brief answer. If you have a question, which is not covered, or would like more information, please don’t hesitate in getting in touch.
How much does a video cost?
It is very difficult to give a guide price to produce a video, as there are so many variables to take into account. There simply isn’t a standard cost for a five or ten minute video. What we try to do is work within your available budget to make it work for you. Video production costs have reduced dramatically over the last decade and with new technology we are able to offer these savings on to you.
How long will the process take?
This really depends on your project. We can produce a short film within a single working day if that is what is needed. On the other hand a typical five minute film could easily be shot over two days. Editing would take a further two days. Add in client changes, approval and final mastering, and you have your finished film.
Can I update my film in the future?
Yes. We always archive editable version of our productions for future tweaks. All project data, including original footage, are archived for a period of five years. At any stage we would supply you with this data on request. However there may be a small charge involved for this.
What happens to any unused footage?
The footage always belongs to you in accordance with our standard terms and conditions. Once the production has been completed we are happy to supply this to you if required. There would be a charge involved for this, perhaps purchasing of a portable hard drive and postage. If you would prefer we would archive this material for you for a period of five years, which is covered in the original production cost.
Green screen filming is used when you wish to remove the background from the picture which is then replaced for a different image. The basic idea is to isolate a particular colour which the computer will ignore in post production allowing a replacement image to show through. Green is used because there isn’t much green in skin colour. Well, there shouldn’t be!
