What is an Event Video?
Shooting is usually the more cut and dry aspect of Event video production. knowing how many hours the event will last and that gives us a rough estimate for calculating shooting price . Editing is the more time consuming aspect of creating a polished Event video. The length and type of content of your piece will dictate the editing cost. Interviews and Testimonials can be simple content to cut. Promo reels or Montages may take more creative thought to execute well.
Tips to consider before booking your shoot:
Know What You Want:
The best way to get the most of the moments you're trying to capture is to provide us with very clear goals for the overall video and a set shot list that outlines everything that you want capture and the "must have" shots.The key to saving time and money is having a clear plan of what you want the video to achieve and what the end product should look like. The production level you are looking to achieve will also contribute to the price. Are you looking for a one-camera shoot with natural lighting or do you desire dolly moves, time-lapse and high-end graphics. These are variables to consider with the overall budget.
Be Specific, don't assume:
Be sure specify the type of live event you would like covered. The camera and audio set up will vary if it is a play, conference, fair, music performance, awards ceremony. This also, gives us a sense of where the shoot will take place: theatre, conference hall, park, outdoors, indoors, etc. We'll need to know things like where we can set up the camera(s) and whether they will be able to plug into the sound board or not.
How much does an Event Video cost?
Pricing for video can vary widely based on the type of event but a good rule of thumb is $100 per hour not including the editing/post production cost.
