How do I calculate a budget for my production?
Production Budgets are not always the easiest thing to calculate. They are generally broken up into the following phases Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production and Distribution. Budgets depend on the amount of people, their daily rates, the cost of rental equipment, as well as the cost of transportation. We are capable of assisting in creating quotes and budgets for a production.
When should I pay for multiple cameras?
Multiple cameras are good for a number of reasons. One, if anything ever were to go incredibly wrong with one camera, at least you have a backup of the shoot. Two, it is very rare that subjects are able to successfully convey messages in a concise, continuous statement. Having a second camera permits you the ability to hide non-continuous segments of video. Three, having a second camera angle can also increase production value and allow you to show more context by showing a wider shot than the primary camera.
