Our Rates and Kit
Every project is unique...
Which is why we prefer to quote on a job by job basis. But to help you find a rough ballpark cost for your project, here are a few of our base rates that we use to build a quote.
If you're looking for a quote for your project, head over to our contact page or give Dan a call on 07835 748405.
Day rates are for a standard 10 hr day, half day rates are for pickup shoots lasting up to 4 hrs. All prices include VAT. Expenses (transport, card stock etc) not included.
CORPORATE PROMO and MUSIC VIDEOs
Shooting day rate: £650 per day / £450 half day
Two man crew, 4K/HD camera, lighting, sound and grips as appropriate.
Additional crew: from £300 per day
Extra camera operators or production crew, used on multi-camera projects and larger shoots. Extra equipment (eg cameras) may incur additional costs.
Talent day rate: from £300 per day
Actors, presenters and voice over artists' rates may vary depending on their experience, although this is a good benchmark to work from.
Pre-production: £40 per hour
Pre-production services could include scriptwriting, storyboarding, project development, production planning, pre-visualisation and rehearsal and will vary depending on the project.
Post-production: £40 per hour
Post-production includes editing, audio mixing, colour correction/grading, graphics and encoding. Complex graphics, animations and custom music will likely incur additional costs.
All quotes include limited previews and corrections and final delivery of file(s) can be via server, USB thumb drive or disc (latter at extra cost). Project and footage will be archived where possible on request to allow for recommissions and updates.
ACTORS SHOWREEL SCENES
Since showreel scenes are a more contained project, we use a much simpler pricing structure for them. On all our showreel shoots, a photographer can also be bookedto take production headshots at extra cost. Please enquire for details.
If you're looking to have a showreel scene produced for you, head over to our contact page or give Dan a call 07835 748405.
Single actor "monologue" scene: £360
A short day shoot with a two man crew, custom script and a simple edit. Great for actors just starting out and wanting a bit of material for their reel.
Two actor contemporary scene: £550
A single day shoot with a two man crew, custom script and weighted and/or clip edits. Our most popular package and the actors usually split the cost between them.
Two actor genre scene: from £550
As above, but where contemporary scenes have inexpensive locations and props etc, genre scenes may incur extra costs for location or costume hire, although we work with you to try and minimise this where possible.
Showreel editing: £120
You provide the footage and we'll do the rest!
