QUOTING A PRICE

DONT JUST ASK I WANT A VIDEO HOW MUCH?

If we could have a pound for every time we are asked that question we would all be living on a big boat in the sun somewhere hot! Its like threading a needle with a blindfold on! We require some upfront information as we have to take into account the style of video which might need one, two, or three cameras, sound or not, props or location and additional crew or talent required, all of which want to get paid.

The style of editing will effect the time involved on your video, if its a simple straight cut it might only take a few hours but a complicated fast cut with special effects, voice overs, complicated sound cuts, titles requested, client changes can all add to the cost of the final edit. So this has to all be taken into account when pricing.

The more information we can have upfront about what you want with samples and styles of edit will help us to give you a rough guide on the final price. 

AS A GUIDE PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING ūüôā

If you want cheap and fast it’s not going to be good!
If you want good and cheap, it’s not going to be fast!
If you want good and fast, it won’t be cheap!
Any other options don’t exist.

DO YOUR RESEARCH

Collect some ideas and dig around the internet. It all helps get us nearer to quoting a fair price and you understand all the possible variables which could effect the final price.

Here are a few places to start your research:

  • Youtube
  • Vimeo
  • Pinterest
  • Facebook
  • Your competition
  • Our previous videos on Vimeo

THE TIME FACTOR

Once the Pre-Production and Production of your project has been shot and finally in the can, we have now reached the final step of Post-Production.

Post-Production usually takes up roughly 80% of the entire project time and its usually the stage the client never gets to see. However we don’t have that magic button that ensures that all the clips are organised, colour corrected as well as the actual cutting sound and editing of the film in such a way that the order makes sense to the viewer.

The actual pushing, pulling and manipulating of that film in the edit so its an effective, watchable and interesting experience takes the eye and quality time of a skilled and experienced editor, so that your final film becomes visually pleasing and creates the impact that simply does the job of making you, your brand or social media presence look professional.

OUR PRODUCTION PROCESS

PRE-PRODUCTION PLANNING

Planning you shoot is an important process. We will get to understand your requirements, who your audience is and maximise your budget. Together, we will develop  and refine ideas.This is the most critical part of the process to work out you needs and find what direction you are going. The majority of the production goes into the pre-planning. Once we have the idea set, making your video is the easy part!

PRODUCTION

We manage the entire design process from beginning to end to include script development, storyboarding, filming and editing. We can offer advice on style, strength of narrative, and how to get the message across effectively to best to connect with the audience.

POST PRODUCTION

At Pout we like our fast cut snappy edits and high production value. When it comes to efficient video editing, punchy colour grading, attention grabbing sound effects and hypnotic animated words on screen we know what we are doing. We charge our edits by the hour and so work quickly and efficiently with most projects signed off on the second edit review

CREW REQUIREMENTS

Creating your ideal video requires a competent team and crew. Heres a little help in understanding what we need with crew.

ONE MAN CREW

Often we can get away with a one man crew, one camera one angle basic video requires just one guy! A party or small event with on camera sound requires just one guy, a static product shoot video you can get away with one guy!

ADDITIONAL CREW

Sometimes we need more bodies on the ground to make your video work it all depends on what you need!
If you require a complex beauty video, a large event or interview where we need double cameras or a sound guy we obviously need to add extra production guys to make it all work successfully!

Modern technology and portability have changed the old process of requiring a full crew consisting of sound, lighting, director, runner, digital input technician, producer, focus puller.

At poutmedia we like to keep the minimum professional crew required to make the job as economical but productive  as possible and for you keeping the costs down by having crew who are multi skilled.

EDITING STYLES

Your Choice of video editing has an impact on how we charge you. We deliver and edit our films in three different styles and costs:

RAW

At the end of the shoot we supply the video as shot on a hard drive or USB. You simply arrange your own editing. This is our lowest priced option as you only pay for the cost of the video shoot.

STRAIGHT

Simple and basic edit without the bells and whistles. This is a simple straight edit with graphics, titles, colour grading, sound and finished video.

FASTCUT

This is where we create the most exciting video with dynamic, fast edits cuts and sounds. This is the most complex of edits and most time consumimg to edit with complex cuts sound and transitions to finally create a video which is snappy fast and looks great on social media.

OUR EDITING PROCESS

POSTPRODUCTION FILM EDITING:

The final film at Poutmedia is edited and pieced together in a way to make the story interesting and engaging and edited by an experienced story teller. Depending on the editing style you have chosen we can now estimate the time involved to edit your film and give it an allotted time for editing.

Additional fees will be charged if the editing goes over the allotted time or changes are requested.

Editing includes global exposure colour correction and grading. Any additional special effects will incur additional fees.

EDITING BY DIRECTION:

If there is a specific way you wish your film to appear,  you may wish to sit with the editors as they go through the process with you. This does slow down the editor considerably so please consider if this is required.

Film editing is about creating a cohesive story with your brand which will engage potential customers or inform them.

TURNAROUND

The Turnaround for editing is around 5-10 days depending on demand but if you require an extra fast turn around (3 days) it will cost plus 100%

All videos are delivered online to our Vimeo production page however for speed we can send via WhatsApp to speed up the process for approval.

We will export the film normally to the standard 1080 HD 24p but if you have any other requirements let us know and we will adjust accordingly.


 Approval Process (IMPORTANT PLEASE READ)

Once the first edit has been completed, a link to a sample video will be sent to the client for approval with timecode.
Sample colour grading or effects work may also be subject to approval prior to final completion.
After final approval by email, the full-quality video will be sent.
Two rounds of minor or technical corrections are included in the price. Further corrections will be charged separately.


Delivery Process

Once the video has been created and signed off, we can export your finished production to where ever you require your video to be seen and make sure you video works seamlessly on social media.
