Frequently Asked Questions
How long should my corporate video be?
This depends on the message you’re trying to convey. Some video placements require a predetermined length, such as commercials and online platforms like Tik Tok. When creating a video on sites such as YouTube they can be a lot longer but it’s important to keep your audience in mind. Generally, most videos on the web shouldn’t be longer than a few minutes. Our Visionaries will be happy to discuss your current needs and develop a strategy that works for your company.
How much should my video cost?
Is it bad to answer a question with a question? What’s your vision and how big is your company’s marketing budget? Only you can determine the amount you want to invest in your video. Our price depends on the vision, the number of scenes, location, and crew members required to get the job done. Give us a call and we can talk over your vision, budget, and how we can help get your ideas on screen. Getting the best quality out of your budget is where our experience and expertise come into play.
How long will it take to produce my video?
Six to eight weeks is average for a corporate video. Social videos can typically be turned around a lot quicker, within a week or two depending on project specifics. Unless you’re remaking the Titanic you should have your final video within two months.
How do companies go about hiring a video production company?
A lot of companies bid multiple vendors for a project but most of our clients come from referrals, repeat business, or good chemistry rather than cost. Video production is high visibility within a company’s organization so it’s essential there is significant trust between the production company and the client. When there’s trust good things tend to happen.
What are the various types of corporate videos?
A majority of our clients create tailor their videos for YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram due to the explosion of social media. Corporate videos are also ideal for websites, tradeshows, conferences, training, and business presentations.
How do I get the best price for my corporate video?
Getting the best return on investment from your video starts with creating a budget and communicating your vision clearly. If you’re just price shopping you might as well hire a teenager with their iPhone. When purchasing a video starts with a budget and strong idea of what you want. That’s where the conversation begins.
Can you produce my TV show or film?
It’s possible, but corporate videos and commercials are our niche outside of weddings. If you truly think you have an amazing TV show or film concept feel free to pitch it to us, but no promises that we’ll take the project on!
Do you have any experience with ____?
I’m willing to bet someone on our team has encountered a project like yours, a deadline just as ridiculous, or expectations just as high. Our Visionaries know how to make things happen and we’re up for any challenge.
What gear does your team use?
We own some of the best production equipment available including cameras able to shoot in 4k resolution. This is more than 5 times the quality of a standard 720 HD broadcast! We’re able to cost-effectively provide the highest quality lighting, sound, and image capture available in the market today. If you have a passion for something grander (think Reds and Arri Alexas) we can provide an estimate for that too.
How quickly can you get my video made?
For a commercial or web video, we recommend booking at least three weeks before shoot day. For script to screen productions please allow six weeks or more. This provides ample time for approvals, casting, and getting the best people and resources in places.
