Types of Media We Produce

 
TYPE 1: Promotional Info-Film:
Duration: 5-15 minutes 
Uses: As a DVD, On the Web, In Stores, At Community Events, At Trade Shows  
Price Range: $7,500-$50,000.00 ($1-3,000.00 per minute)

 

Description: An Info-Film is a 5-15 minute film which tells the story of a company, group, person or cause; a complete, compelling film about any story. Think a “60 Minutes” piece; a Nova episode; a Discovery Channel profile. It is a professionally produced, filmed story. 

 

Process: We meet with the Client to find the heart of their story. We research their entire story and focus in on the most compelling aspects. We write a complete outline with Voice Over narration. When we come to film, we spend 3-5 days filming, depending on the complexity of the production, and if the Client continues to provide us with things to film. We film the facility, interview the Owners/Managers/Clients/Others on camera and get all the other shots and sound bites we will need. We then edit together the film from all the material we produced, plus use any footage or product photography that the client may already have. Near the end we cast a voice over actor to narrate the film. We create custom Graphics and Music. We will deliver a cut of the final film in about 60 days for Clients Notes. Then we go back and incorporate their notes and make final adjustments. We then add all the Titles and Final Graphics. We deliver the final film in three formats: on a DVD, as a Mini DV video tape, and as a Link to the media for streaming from the clients web site.

TYPE 2: Commercial 
Duration: 30, 60, 90 seconds 
Uses: As a DVD Mailer; On the Web 
Price: $1,000-10,000.00 per minute. 

 

Description: A Commercial is a 30-90 second film which excites and moves the viewer in a visceral way. No in depth information, but connects the product or service with the viewer through excitement, drama or humor. 

Process: We first have phone conferences with the Client and key Staff to learn about their business. Then we research Client’s existing marketing materials and create an outline for the style and tone of the commercial. Client must sign off on the concept. On the day of filming, we film the best parts of the facility, interview one or two key staff, plus and a few testimonials from happy customers (Client must provide this). We film all the other action shots you must have in order to make a commercial compelling. We edit a 30, 60, or 90 second commercial from all the material that we can get. We add the right type of Voice Over copy and Music, and at times we will work with special graphics and color themes. We deliver the final commercial on a DVD, a Mini DV video tape, and provide a Link to the media for streaming from the clients web site, and from the Client’s Web Site.

or as an emailed link to promote a product or event.
Price: $500-$2,000.00 per finished minute

 

Description: Media Clips are any short video that is created to get a message across to the viewer but is generally part of a bigger presentation. Sometimes, we will break a film into chapters and post those chapters as seperate clips. The production process is the same as with any other film type but with clips we generally tag each clip with the clients logo and a 3-5 second "bumber" which  brands the clip with the clients ID thus helping to promote the clients brand. Clips are generally short and can be emailed to prospective clients.

 TYPE 4: Green Screen Host

Type 4: On Screen Host
Duration: 2-4 minutes 
Use: As a Personal Host on Clients Web Page(s). 
Price: $600.00 per 2 hour filming session; up to 10 Segments.

 

Description: A Green Screen shoot is when you film a person on a Green Background so that you can replace the Green with any kind of filmed media including a Web Page. This is done everyday by the Local TV Weatherman. In our case we film a Client and then superimpose their images onto their web pages. We make them the “hosts” of their own web site. They and their staff become the stars of their Web Site. Soon, most web sites will have a Host walking you through your visit to their various web pages. 

Process: We have a phone conference with the Client to learn about their business, do some basic research and then write some dialogue for the Client to speak on camera during the various segments. On the day of filming, the client comes to our office to shoot their On Camera pieces. This takes 1-2 hours depending on the volume of segments. Then we pick the best takes and deliver 1-3 segments to be used on various web pages that have been pre determined. We deliver the final media to your web designer in the format of their choice, or we add the media to your web site, once we have authorization. Additional segments are $200.00 each delivered.

Process: We have a phone conference with the Client to learn about their business, do some basic research and then write the Voice-Over narration for the Photo Montage based on written material submitted by Client. The Client also sends us the Photos which we scan into the computer. We create the film from the stills which best tell the story.
