You want to take your online presence to the next level and connect with clients and prospects. Video is a great tool for this and online video consumption is one of the fastest growing areas of social media.
Online video is no longer just YouTube, now every social media platform has video capabilities and video is fast becoming the primary way people use the platforms. From Instagram stories, to Facebook live and Twitter’s short clips more and more content is moving to video.
Video allows you to connect with prospects on a more personal level, it gets their attention and most importantly, when well done, keeps their attention. That is the part that is hard to pull off and that is where we come in. Quality footage, sound and editing allow you to present a polished and professional image across all social platforms.
Unfortunately, at this time, we only have a film crew in Toronto, however we can consult and give tips on how to make use of some tools you may already have to record yourself. Then you can send us the footage and we will take it from there. No headache editing and with a few simple cheap and easy fixes we can help you turn a smartphone recording into something that looks theater ready. If you are outside of the GTA please still reach out and maybe we can be of service.
We also come to you, no need to come to our studio (we actually don’t take anyone into the studio). Filming in your office or local spaces helps to make the footage more natural, which is essential when connecting with an audience on social media.
One of the areas we pride ourselves on is cost. We hold no delusions, we are not a five star ad agency with massive film lots and bays full of editors. We are like you, a small company looking to help other small business people achieve their goals. One of the upsides to that though is that we don’t charge five star ad agency prices. We also believe in being upfront and honest about our rates and about our abilities. We won’t lead you on if we can’t meet your expectations and we will let you know right from the start.
Filming (recording, set up, take down) – $45 / hour
Consultation (script writing, planning, story boarding) – $50 / hour
Editing (our footage or footage you send in) – $40 / hour
Video hosting (on redundant and fast servers) – $1 / gb – month *
Please use the contact form below to let us know some of the details of your project and we will be able to provide an estimate. For a quick reference, a simple (one or two different angles) 30 second piece will usually entail 2-3 hours of consulting, 2-4 hours of filming (depending on the number of takes needed) and another 2-3 hours of editing (depending on changes recommended). We will offer the most efficient approach to your project in the initial estimate. We strive to keep costs down as much as possible.
All video projects will end with you receiving the final file in .mp4 at the highest quality along with multiple versions encoded for the best performance on different social media platforms.
Please note that different social media platforms handle video content differently, we will ask where you plan to share the video and shoot around that. What this means is that if you want to shoot in 4k for YouTube but later decide to upload the video to Instagram it might not be the optimal aspect ratio or bitrate and there will be nothing we can do to fix that short of re-shooting (or potentially edits that could ruin the overall quality). Also different platforms generally expect different tones in the content, so letting us know at the start is always the best bet
*video hosting is only recommended if you cannot create a social media account but still want to host video on your site.
