Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much is this going to cost?

Fortunately or not — but like everything in life — this depends on a variety of factors and services desired. Generally, commercial projects are more expensive, with finished products starting as low as $5,000 but the vast majority being around $20,000. Conversely, passion projects typically cost about $10,000 for a short film and $200,000 for a feature length project, but vary much more based on individual project requirements and specifications.

How long is this going to take?

This depends on a variety of factors as well, mostly the size and scope of the project. Once a project has been agreed upon and greenlit, we guarantee production on the timetable agreed upon, with 95% of our projects being completed within 4 weeks.

What type of videos do you make?

For the most part, we can do whatever you can imagine. While the most common requests are for brand or product commercials, testimonials, educational and informational videos, or the occasional animation project, our team has an abundance of experience and passion for larger or more creatively oriented projects.

What about the video rights?

Our clients own the rights to all finished productions – forever.
