Producing a video is a lot like buying a car: you get what you pay for. Toyota and Ferrari are both reputable automobile manufacturers, but each brand distinguishes itself by unique features in power, quality, design... and price!
It is also a common misconception that the length of a video determines the cost, so I'm frequently asked for a "quick" video, with the implication that because it's short, it'll cost less to make.
I can say with authority, that an agency can easily spend $500,000 or more on a 30-second commercial for a national brand, while some creative individuals can spend $5,000 or less on a 2-hour award-winning film.
To overcome all that, I've designed a pricing system that will hopefully alleviate the stress of trying to figure all this out.
Sometimes thinking inside the box can yield the greatest creativity!
