Services

“So how’s this work &
what’s it going to cost me?”

I provide you with THREE main services to choose from–please have a look at the choices below.
However, if you have something in mind that you think doesn’t fit into any of these categories please get in touch so we can work it out.

PONY PACKAGE A:
LET’S MAKE A VIDEO

This option will yield a video that promotes, documents, or augments your project. The footage can be shot over several days or just one day, depending on what the project requires. In the end you’ll receive an HD 1080p video, as well as a version that you’ll be able to upload onto your Vimeo account (so it’s file size will be under 500mb).

Here is an example of what something like this looks like:

STEP 1CONSULTATION:

Where we talk (or email) about what you roughly want to see if we’re a good fit for each other. This is where you let me know what you’re thinking for the final video(s) so I can make something that works for you need.

STEP 2 – MAKING THE THING:

Depending on what you want the final video’s duration to be, we may have to shoot over several days, and depending on the project we may have to shoot some interview footage and/or record voice-over. I’ll edit a video with the footage I collected, based on what you said, to make something I am happy with. When you look it over hopefully you’ll be happy with it too. This process may take me as little as a few days or up to a month to complete. It all has to do with the duration of the final video and the complexity of the content.

+ Each day of shooting will cost £120. This is the minimum for booking and will hold me somewhere for 4 hours. But it’s easy to get me to stick around longer–just add £30 for each additional hour.

+ In addition, each minute of the final video will cost £15. You can think of this as the editing cost.

+ You would also cover my transportation costs, and lodging (when applicable).
If staying overnight, there is a £30 per diem added.

+ £20 for each hour of general admin. We’ll email a few times and this doesn’t normally take up more than an hour.

STEP 3 – CREDITS:

If you would like me to include credits, or text of any kind, you’ll need to provide me with that text as you want it to appear.

STEP 4 – CHANGES / EXTRA EDITING:

Hopefully, no changes will need to be made after delivery, but changes are possible. If you desire changes to be made or if information in the video needs to be updated (in the credits for example) because of something that was left out when the information was supplied to me originally, I charge £20/hr to make those updates with a £20 minimum. Also, additional requested bounces of a video are £20. I will keep the project file for up to two months after delivery for this purpose.

PONY PACKAGE B:
THE EXPRESS LANE

This is a package is ideal for musicians that want a video of a song, or multiple songs, performed during a rehearsal or gig.

I’ll film for up to 4 hours of multiple takes during a single day session. You can let me know either during shooting or afterward, which takes you’d like exported. The output for this option will be videos with no edits*–so they’re just one continuous shot each. If desired I can add some simple opening and end credits as you provide them.

*If you would like edits between takes please see the option “Let’s Make a Video” above.

+ Each day of shooting will cost £120. This is the minimum for booking and will hold me somewhere for 4 hours. But it’s easy to get me to stick around longer–just add £30 for each additional hour.

+ and each video–of each song let’s say–that you’d like pulled from that footage will cost £20. Full concerts are £100.

+ You would also cover my transportation costs, and lodging (when applicable). If staying overnight, there is a £30 per diem added.

+ £20 for each hour of general admin. We’ll email a few times and this doesn’t normally take up more than an hour.

All videos will be exported in HD (1080p), and if requested I can export  versions for non-pro Vimeo accounts (Vimeo requires file size to be under 500mb) at no additional cost.

Here is an example of what something like this looks like:

This is Trio Riot. We shot six songs that day. Here’s the first one the band has decided to put up on their vimeo account.

PONY PACKAGE C:
C IS FOR CAMERAMAN

(£120 per day) + (transportation costs) + (hard drive postage)

I’ll point my camera and focus my mind on whatever it is you want shot. Like with the other options you can book me for a day of shooting, which means up to 4 hours. Though if you want me to stick around longer just add £30 for each additional hour.

This option doesn’t mean you’ll have 4 hours of footage. It just means I’m there shooting with your specifications in mind to capture as much relevant footage for you as possible.

So with this option you will get a lot more raw footage cheaper than you would with the previous options, though it doesn’t include any editing, exporting, or uploading. If you choose this option you’ll get all the footage I captured as an AVCHD file. These file sizes are quite large, so you’ll need to supply me with an external hard drive on the day of filming big enough to store the files, that I would then mail back to you. The cost of this is covered by you as well as any transportation costs. Also, this option is **only for those that know how to work with these files**, and have an editing program. Otherwise it’s best you select either options A or B where I do the editing/exporting.
