Hi there, some of you may recognise my other username (torby...) I've had to register as whin bush as my a/c seems to be locked for some reason.
I'm quickly trying to get a "ball park" figure for a job...details are...
2 camera shoot at 3 different locations spread over 5 days with over 150 miles between locations, it will involve 3 nights away (so accomodation required) all the subsequent editing and authoring to DVD will be done by us as well.
Quick brief details, filming two sporting legends with their own piece to camera, then voxpops, then different location to film them with their own teams how they manage them, train them etc, then filming them as sporting legends running training sessions for kids.
Plus various interviews with players and managers, splicing in mainstream tv footage of their achievements etc.
The final DVD project will be expected to be in the region of 110 minutes.
I have my own ideas of cost (Ive factored in we'll have to hire radio mic packages, additional lighting, transportation costs, extra staff...probably two men etc)
I know a good few of you on here will have done similar sized shoots...bearing in mind our last DVD was a 15 track music one shot over two days where the artist lip synced, came in at just under £2k...this is a whole new ball game....plus its to a seriously strict schedule, filming and editing...
after the shoot, the final edit will need to be ready in 15 days to produce a glass master....added to this the added stress that the "director" and "producer" (and I use the terms loosely) will want to have their own creative input.
As this is new ground for us...any ballpark figures will be welcome....although I have a feeling we may have to hand over to an independant production crew better versed in this type of work....help.....
