I would classify myself as a 'Middle-ground Hero' - an individual or small business offering high-quality video content at a sensible price.

Video Production Process

How Do You Make a Commercial Video?

I start my commercial video production by asking questions about your marketing objectives. 

  • What problem(s) are you trying to solve?
  • Who is the target audience?
  • What outcome are you trying to achieve?
  • Where are you going to show your video?
  • What's your budget?

Once these basics are understood we can create a video storyboard to identify what each part of the video will look like and how it all fits together. This will also inform what shots need to be captured, what music will be appropriate to accompany the video and an idea of location, models, props, lighting etc too.

Then we get all of these things together and set a time to capture the footage. Systematically stepping through the shot list will allow us to capture everything, making sure we don't miss anything off.

After the footage has been captured, I'll take it away to edit together.

When I've created a rough cut (a first draft) I'll send it to you for comments. If you're happy with where it is so far I'll then finish off the edit and produce a final video for you have. This will then be yours to distribute.

Video Production Costs

How much does it cost?

It's not a simple question, but here's a starter for 10...

Video production is based upon a few factors grouped into categories - The planning phase (pre-production), the shooting phase (production) and the editing phase (post-production). Each video will require a different amount of time and cost to do well. You can't create a good video without each of these three stages.

In general, social videos are the cheapest to produce and range from £250 upwards. I offer discounts for clients requesting multiple social videos at a time.

Event videos are the next cheapest but depend up how much footage needs to be captured. Prices start at £250 + shooting time charged at £100 per hour of coverage. But, once you've got the footage, more videos can be made from the same source content giving you greater cost efficiency.

Product and brand videos will be largely the same and start from £1200.

For more details on where the cost comes from have a look at this article: How much does a commercial video cost in the UK.
