unique brand films for small businesses
Do you want to truly engage your viewers and connect with your most ideal
clients? Let’s work together to create an inspiring video that showcases your
brand's passion and purpose and allows your personality to shine through.
Video currently constitutes over half of the world’s Internet traffic and by 2019, it is
estimated to make up more than four-fifths of all Internet traffic. As a small business, it’s essential to
keep up with the changing times by promoting your service or product through high quality,
strategic video content. As an experienced storytelling filmmaker and successful business owner
myself, I will plan and create a thoughtful, engaging, and emotive video for your business that will
leave clients falling in love with you and clearly visualizing how your brand will fit into their lives.
Here’s how it works:
FIRST MEETING (the vision...in-person)
Successful brand films require a significant amount of pre-production planning. Once your retainer is paid, I will send you a detailed questionnaire to gather as much information about you and your business as I can. I will use the answers from that questionnaire to come up with a concept and draft a storyboard/script for your session to be filmed, and a general timeline for your project. I will present that to you at our first meeting, and we will make any necessary adjustments together.
SECOND MEETING (the details...online)
We will have a second meeting (via Skype) closer to the session date where we finalize all the details and go over everything together one last time. At this meeting, I will also present your three hand-selected music options for your film, which we will narrow down to one together.
FILM SESSION (the big day...on-location)
On the day of the session, I allow for up to 4 hours of filming, and this includes the option for a casual mini-interview so you can speak from your heart about why you do what you do in order to truly connect with your viewers. If you’d rather not have an interview, we can infuse your message through voiceover and layer that into your video. If I feel like we need extra time for filming based on the concept we’ve discussed then I will quote you for the extra time accordingly.
POST-PRODUCTION (where the magic happens)
After the session you will provide me with any still images to be used in the video, along with your logo file, and I will get started on the editing work. My turnaround time for brand films is 6-8 weeks from the date of the film session.
Your final video product will be 2-3 minutes in length. Long enough to convey your message, yet short enough to keep your audience engaged and wanting more of you. You will receive two copies of your film once it is complete, one via Vimeo and the other via an external host. From there, you can upload the film to your own Vimeo and/or YouTube account, embed it on your website, and link to social media. I can help where necessary so that you can make the most of your video and reach your target audience. I will also share your video to my own business page (if desired) and blog about our experience.
INVESTMENT (the value of your message)
The fee for Brand Films is $3,900. This includes up to 4 hours of on-location filming/interview/product shots + all planning and post-processing to make a cohesive and inspiring video + commercial licensing of premium music (up to $300 value). One full set of revisions is included in this price, and any revisions requested or additional time beyond that may be purchased at $200 hourly. A retainer of $300 is required to get the ball rolling, and balance must be paid in full before the day of the film session. Payment plans are available.
