video work

EDITING VIDEO (post production)

  • composing videos for given time frames and according to storyboards
  • editing, cutting, enhancing
  • adding audio/music, voice-over narration or overlay text titles
  • Cost range: ca. $150-$25o / per minute of finished video.
  • Advanced editing, animation, effects like requiring Adobe AfterEffects might add to the overall costs
  • Actual costs: can only be estimated after I have reviewed your source material, task list and/or concept / storyboard. There’s also a chance I have to decline if material, concept, and goals are not in-sync. For an estimate I need all material and your concept / goals in writing.

EDITING EXISTING VIDEO (corrections, retouching)

  • e.g. color corrections, obstructing license plates or faces, cutting out unwanted scenes, etc.
  • adding audio/music, voice-over or overlay text titles

    walk-through presentations can be roughly calculated: ca. $18o to $3oo / per minute of video. Depending on factors like property type, size, interview:yes/no, your requirements, and others. Discounts if bundled with photo shoot.
  • e.g. company presentations, crowdfunding, video applications, etc.: industry ballpark numbers are: $5oo to $15oo / per minute of video, depending on complexity, length of video, goals, number of locations / shoots, and pre-production (script / concept) work involved. A budget of 2k would be a good start.
    Determine your budget by honestly evaluating your goals. Your video needs to appeal to your target audience and their expectations. Costs for crowdfunding, business videos
