Frequently Asked Questions
The price tag for a video project can't be set in stone; it's a bit of a moving target. Because every project is different, it comes down to how intricate the project is, how many days we need to shoot, the crew and talent headcount, the equipment we require to use, and how quickly you need it all done. So, there's no one-size-fits-all approach here. But we can devise up a plan that fits your budget like a glove. Just so you know, we've handled projects ranging from three grand to half a million bucks and everything in between.
In plain terms, making a responsible video budget is no walk in the park. Imagine wanting a 30-second video but insisting on a helicopter chase scene, or asking for a 1-minute video spread across a dozen different locations. See what we mean? The only thing that ties it all together is what we call "production value" – basically, how awesome your video looks and performs. We're all about giving our clients top-notch production value for every dollar, no matter what budget they're working with.
Project timelines can get a bit tricky in the video world. Sometimes, getting the green light to use a specific location or landing that sought-after talent can mess with your schedule. And if your video calls for some fancy special effects, motion graphics, or heavy-duty editing, that can slow things down too. It's all connected to how elaborate your video needs to be. But in the grand scheme of things, for a standard 3-minute corporate video, we generally shoot for a project timeline of around 4-6 weeks from start to finish. Just to give you an idea.
Our usual team size is between 3 and 5 crew members: a Producer/Director, Director of Photography, Sound Technician, Gaffer, and a Production Assistant. Every now and then, we might throw in some extra hands like a Script Supervisor or a Production Coordinator, but that's all based on what your project needs and how tricky it gets.
We're all about top-notch gear here. Our camera game is strong, with state-of-the-art 6K cinema cameras packing Super 35mm-sized sensors, and we pair those with the latest T1.5 cinelenses for that cinematic touch. Plus, we've got a fully-loaded grip truck stocked with all the latest and greatest lighting gear you could ever need. And hey, we've got some great connections in the Colorado Film scene, so if there's anything specific you want, we can make it happen.
We've got your back when it comes to subtitles and English captions for your videos. We've built a worldwide network of skilled translators, so you can count on real, spot-on translations in 16 different languages – no automated gibberish here. It's a slick way to make sure your films and videos reach folks all around the world, spreading that brand goodness far and wide.
Video formats can be a real mess and crazy tech stuff, but no worries – we're on it. When it comes to video encoding, we've got the know-how to steer you in the right direction. Depending on where you plan to showcase your video, we can give you the lowdown on the best format to roll with. And don't sweat it, we'll hand over your videos in whatever format floats your boat. The usual suspects are QuickTime, MP4, and AVI – they're the cool kids on the block.
Usually, the footage we capture is meant for the final edit we'll provide you. Our footage is typically shot in either LOG or RAW format (which basically means it's untouched and needs some converting magic before it's ready to watch). Plus, these files tend to be pretty hefty and take up a lot of storage space. Now, unless we've got a contract together that spells out your need for unedited footage and you're all cool with any extra charges that might come with it, we generally do not provide RAW footage.
RHP has a very structured approval process. You have 2 opportunities to make comments and changes on the finished video, we call it the Rough-Cut and the Final-Cut stages. If you need more changes or have a last minute idea, we then go to an hourly rate.
You bet. Our Production Company has your back when it comes to property damage, injuries, and advertising injuries. We're covered up to $2,000,000
The video is all yours! But we do reserve the rights to use some of your footage for our marketing materials and portfolio.
When it comes to video production, the good news is that expenses incurred in creating marketing and advertising content for your business can be 100% tax deductible.
