SRF VIDEO PRODUCTION SERVICES PRICING & FACTS

BASIC GUIDE:

EXPLAINERS, STARTUP VIDEOS AND STOCK DRIVEN CORPORATE B2B $1200

  • 30 Second Explainers $1200
  • 45 – 90 Second Explainers $1600 (time estimates are rough and flexible).

These are videos made of stock footage, motion graphics, and professional voice-overs. Sometimes we use client’s content as well or direct them via Skype/Facetime to shoot a bit with their phones.  Examples at this budget level can be seen on the EXPLAINERS page.

SIMPLE PRODUCT VIDEOS $5000 

Think of this as an Explainer, yet with product shots. These are rare, good for very simple 4-hour shoot type concepts in a White Room Studio.

STUDIO LEVEL COMMERCIALS $10,000

If contained to a single day of shooting and a single location, the starting cost of two to three actor video is around $10,000 including everything and shot on amazing gear, looking like all the other content you see on the site. Sometimes multiple ads can be shot on the same day at a very affordable price.  Exterior Location Shoots are sometimes more expensive, depending on the number of locations and what type of locations you are seeking. To shoot around town for a day typically adds just a couple thousand dollars.

See our COMMERCIALS PAGE for an overview of our high-end style. Our goal at SRF Video Production is to provide amazing looking commercials and videos for prices that work with startups and frugal brands alike. We are different on this site than most companies – we actually list our starting prices to take away from the “awkward bidding conversation”.

About half the videos you see on our site were done for around 10-15k while some of the bigger productions are produced for closer to 80k. No matter the size of your brand, small or large, we have a plan. Give us a call and let us know what your budget is, we can usually come up with a solution that rocks your world and expands your brand’s awareness.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Where all of the good actors and crew are.

I’M NOT IN LOS ANGELES! CAN I STILL WORK WITH YOU?

Yes. There’s this handy device called the internet. It allows us to work together face to face via Skype, Facetime, Google Hangs or Whatsapp, (depending on where you are from).  You get audition videos within a few days of starting and write the script with the director.

We use Google Invites for Screensharing, so you can participate in post if needs are specific. We work either by phone or face to face for revisions and creative discussions. Everyone gets everything done ten times faster and you never have to leave your desk!

For most Explainers, the script is written in one or two phone sessions. For commercial projects, our clients are given up to three over the phone script writing sessions (additional are just $100 per round) and two rounds of casting discussions.

This works great for commercials, product videos, Educational and APP Explainers.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

Depending on both project needs and on how many clients we are currently serving, explainers often take between 48 to 72 hours.

Commercials are typically delivered within 3 to 4 weeks depending on complexity and casting/location requirements. If a simple, some have been delivered within less than a week for an extra charge.

WHAT IS THE EXPLAINER WORKFLOW?

Send us your site or online documents, brand guidelines and a brief bit about what your video is trying to communicate.  You can also send any stock clips or after fx templates, you have found (we have hundreds of thousands we can use for you).

Then we hop on the phone, discuss your brand and message and write the script together.

The script is sent to Voice-Over and then the edit and graphics production begins.

Videos are delivered within a week (depending on current schedule – inquire at time of order).

WHAT IS THE COMMERCIAL WORKFLOW?

You send us your site or documents and what kind of a video you are looking to have shot and edited.

We do a phone call and brainstorm the concept/approach while discussing the budget and needs. The contract is then executed and a script writing session is scheduled.

We do a one-hour script call and then within a day or two you receive a copy of the script. We then do a call to tweak the script after you and your team have had a day to absorb.

Voice-over artist (if needed) is chosen and casting begins. Roughly 10 to 20 actors are sent over (depending on role). The client makes selections and then (for lead roles and any key roles) between 5 to 10 audition videos are recorded (more if needed). Client and director then agree on the cast. Shooting date is scheduled.

An edit is usually delivered within 5 to 10 days of shooting.

We have clear communication from the beginning, so revisions are often not necessary yet easily done if needed.

I WANT TO BE ON SET OR IN THE COMMERCIAL! IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Easy.  Flights to LA from anywhere in the world are cheap. The air is really clean, the traffic is not bad and LAX airport security really likes to cuddle. You can ask them if you get bored during the commute. You can also join us at key moments via Facetime or Skype instead.

One great thing about us is, we do so many spots, that we are able to just plain take things over for you when you have your own business to think about. It is all streamlined here.

HOW BIG IS YOUR COMPANY? WILL MY PROJECT GET LOST IN THE SHUFFLE?

You only have to deal with your writer/director. While sometimes support team and crew is used in planning and post, you will not get lost in the shuffle here.

We are small enough to keep things affordable, fast enough to make ourselves a handsome profit, and good enough to stay constantly busy (and have a blast while doing it). The project turnaround times are fast.

We make the process very easy on you and allow you to be very involved, or simply put everything in the hands of a director with 20+ years experience under his belt. You will get something amazing either way!
