I have 4- 1 hour Instructional videos(filmed in a studio as well as live action type scenes outdoors) that were filmed and edited by a friend who owns a production company. He gave us a great deal on shooting and editing. My partner is unfortunately a moron and thinks he is getting to much- he is receiving a percentage of the sales and received no upfront fee( and believe me this is not going to sell thousands). I'm trying to just get a rough estimate on what most would have charge for this, just ballpark figures for 4 different dvd's about 1 hour each in length professional filmed and edited, oh yeah he also made us 4- 2 minute promotional trailers also, thenks in advance
Thanks for the info, This is what i was looking for. A friend did a favor and produced these videos for us and is receiving a small portion of each DVD sale. He will be lucky if he walks away with 2-3k. One of my partners felt he was getting too much, even though i and everyone else said he was delusional. I was just curious to find out how delusional he was. thanks again
I would go so far as to say that the studio time alone was worth what you paid him. He's a good mate if he's worked for a percentage and, you're right, your partner's a moron. Mark's £10k minimum estimate is fair.
As a rough guide a small studio with lighting £1k per day, Lighting Cameraman with kit, the same, Soundie and general assistant likewise and you're at your £3k before you've added anyone else, consumables, location shooting, editing, etc. etc. etc.
