We provide freelance video production for business, public sector, and non-profits/CICs in North Wales, Liverpool, Cheshire, and the Northwest. Our modern technologies help us to produce high fidelity sound and artistic visuals while reducing production costs like time and labour. Also, we provide voiceover, photography, and field equipment solutions for events.
Budgeting for video
Sooner rather than later you will ask “how much does it cost?”. Of course, we can answer that by return with transparent costs for time and equipment. and you can contact us for instant price guides. Really, video production for commercial video comes down to time/travel, and equipment/talent. Once you understand how these costs work, we can help you plan how to get the best value for the time needed to produce your material for the budget you have.
Finished video quality depends on budget. For instance, the video above is an excerpt from a 45 minute concert recital. While we aimed to provide pleasing visuals, our client explicitly required high fidelity stereo audio. Consequently our recording and production was geared towards audio accuracy rather than improved staging or special video effects. To this end, our client could economize on filming while devoting more resources on sound.
In any event a budget for video production is a calculation of how much it costs to realize the return on investment (ROI) you intend to realize. In fact, larger businesses use this approach to treat video production as an investment, not a cost. After all, Hollywood films are not made to generate costs, but to reward investors.
Our work – video production
We usually work as independant freelance contractors with our clients. Our modern equipment means one engineer can cover two cameras and up to six microphones. In fact, we streamline processes all the time with advanced technology to minimize labour costs and save post production time.
Additionally, we work work with “the trade” to share experience or niche skills. To illustrate what we do, see our Projects page to browse examples of the work we do.
Our work – voiceover
Our equipment inventory and capability in sound engineering for video production is rooted in voiceover work. Indeed we are a Microsoft Cloud Partner with more than twenty years of experience in IT and certifications accumulated from other vendor technologists like Cisco. For example, our voiceover work includes:
- Who is the client?
- What is the project/event?
- Where is the shoot located?
- How many images do you need?
- Are the images for press, news media, publication, or social media?
- Are there samples of existing content/style
- What are start/finish times?
- Is there a schedule with running times?
- For outdoor events, is there co-location in case of rain?
- Is access organised for restricted access?
- Name and number for representative
- Optimized high quality audio output
