What should I wear if I am being interviewed or appearing on camera?

What should I wear if I am being interviewed or appearing on camera?

We suggest solid earth tones for most productions. Blues, tans and dark reds are usually safe options. If you are being filmed on our green screen, please avoid any shade of green, but any other color is fine. Try to avoid clothing with tight patterns or wide horizontal lines. Patterns can cause a moray effect and horizontal lines emphasize width (something most of us want to avoid). If you wear a white shirt, consider bringing a jacket or sweater to help reduce the contrast between your skin tone and the shirt. Lastly, bring a second shirt/blouse, tie or jacket as an alternate selection.

Pricing can vary depending on the type and length of the video. We look at the complexity of the project, run time of the video, use of actors or voiceover and equipment needed as the primary factors. Some projects benefit from using our studio, rather than shooting on location. The more information you can provide about what you want us to produce, the more accurate the price. We have introductory video packages starting at $999 for a 30-second web commercial. Give us a call for details and a free quote.

Most productions take 3-4 weeks to complete, though we regularly accommodate rush productions. Receiving timely feedback from our questions and after reviewing the draft versions of the video help to keep a project on schedule.

Do you help write the script and manage the project?We can be as involved as you desire. Some clients have a rough draft of the script already prepared and we simply polish it to make it video-friendly. Other times we start with a blank piece of paper. We always provide feedback and guidance that we think will benefit the production. After all, we want you to return to have us produce another video for you.

 

Can you help provide actors or voiceover talent?

Can you help provide actors or voiceover talent?

Yes we can. We work with talent agencies to find the right actors or extras, if required for your production. We host auditions in our studio and provide clients with video from the session so a decision can be determined from both the audition and our feedback. We also maintain a file of voiceover artists that are available to record the narration of your video.
