VIDEO PRODUCTION RATES

Pricing a video production is always difficult. Each project is unique in many ways and every budget is different to the next. Here, we've laid out the rate card which we use to base the cost of every production.

If you are part of the crew, or another video production company and would like to update or discuss the rates below, please feel free to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. If you're an agency and would like to discuss full production costs, we can help you create a compelling quote for your client(s).

Ethos - We want to make sure everyone in the video production process is getting a fair deal. The rates listed below are the prices the crew will recieve - we do not mark up or take a cut from their rates. We use our own personnel when applicable and only add a 15% production fee at the end of each quote.

Please note all crew prices are exclusive of VAT @ 13.5%, and all equipment prices are exclusive of VAT @ 23%.
