Price Sheet – Video
Studio Recording Fee:
Studio recording time is charged at $125 per hour, billable in half hour increments. There is a minimum studio charge of one hour ($125.00). With proper preparation it is possible to record several videos an hour.
Please note that our studio is used for audio recording & editing, video recording & editing, and teaching. The studio will be configured to your needs prior to your arrival. However, this takes time. If you cannot make your scheduled time, and you fail to notify us at least 24 hours in advance, we will impose a minimum studio fee of one hour to cover the time to set-up the studio for you.
Sound and Light Check
We want you to be happy with the quality of the recording and so we allow up to 30 minutes for a sound and light check at no charge. (Typically this only takes 10 to 15 minutes).
Time in excess of 30 minutes will be charged at regular studio rates.
Additional Studio Charges:
If we have to purchase a background/backdrop for your recording session, or if we need to rent additional equipment such as microphones or lights, we charge them back at cost + 20%.
Use of the teleprompter is included in the studio fee.
Most videos are under a few minutes in length. Longer videos generally don’t do well on the internet – people often don’t have the patience to listen to a long video.
For short videos (under 5 minutes) our basic editing fee is $125 per video with a plain background. Videos shot against a green screen are $175. per video for basic editing.
Additional editing, such as the addition of images in the background, is charged based on the complexity of the project. We can advise you of the costs when booking your appointment.
For longer videos, please contact us for a quote. It will be based on the length of the video, and it’s complexity.
Images and sound tracks that are purchased for your video will be charged back at cost + 20%.
Our standard videos are output 640 px wide. Other widths can be accomodated without a surcharge if specified prior to editing. All of our videos are formatted in .mp4 format, optimized for web browsing.
Changes to content, editing, etc, may involve additional cost. Please tell us as clearly as you can what you are looking for. We’ll do our best to ensure that you receive what you are looking for.
Payment for studio fees, additional studio charges, and editing, is due at the conclusion of the recording session. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Debit.
