It seems most companies don’t like to post their video production rates, but then again we’ve always prided ourselves on doing things a little bit different. If you shop around you’ll find our pricing is in the middle of the industry-standard range.

Production Cost

Large or small, we have the crew and equipment to fit your budget! From a single videographer with a DSLR package to a fully-equipped production crew, we have the resources to take your vision from script to screen! Need additional gear beyond what’s listed? Check out our equipment list! A Half-Day is up to 5 hours, a Full-Day is up to 10 hours. Time includes set-up & tear down time.


The key to any successful video production project is proper planning, and that is where pre-production comes into play! Activities include script writing and/or review, storyboarding, location scouting and creating a shooting schedule.

Pre-Production Rates Hourly Half Day Full Day
$100 $450 $800


Post-Production is when we take your footage and edit into a completed video. This includes video editing, motion graphics, color grading and more! We’ll add sound, titles, color correction and encode it for DVD, Blu-Ray or the web, and upload it to your website, YouTube or Vimeo!
