Frequently Asked Questions

Why get a video?


There are two types of people - the ones currently using video, and the ones that should be. Why? Simply because there’s a fast growing demand for it. Video is easy to consume and uses more of our emotions. Pictures can be great, but that’s only ONE dimensional. A video can not only be seen, but heard, and in some cases felt as well. That’s a 3 - 1 benefit! Video is growing partly because advances in technology but also because it’s easy to spread across the globe. Emotionally charged, creative videos can be spread on the Internet in a matter of days, getting millions of views. Other reasons include: Video boosts conversions and sales Video shows great ROI (Return On Investment) Video builds trust Video appeals to mobile users Video marketing can explain everything Video engages even the laziest buyers Video encourages social shares




How much do you charge?


The price is tailored to match the work of the video project and every video project is different. Let's talk about what you're trying to accomplish first then we'll work out the pricing that works for you.




How long will it take to make my video?


That depends entirely on what the video project is. Some videos I can film and edit together in an afternoon, others can take over a week. But once I've filmed your video I start editing immediately for a quick and well made product. I will be able to give you an indication of the time it will take when it's discussed what you're after.




Where are you based?

Do you do photography as well?


Yes, I'm able to provide phtotography services as well. Depending on the requirements of your photos I can either do it myself, or arrange for other photographers I know to provide some high quality pictures for you. The cost for photography services will be negotiated depending on the project.




Do you have other people to help for bigger projects?


Yes, I have a network of reliable and talented crew members. If your video project requires multiple people then get in touch and I'll arrange a team for you that meets your requirements.




Why are you a good fit for the job?
