How it works
How it works
When your project kicks off, you will mail us your product so we have it for our filming days. We then work on defining the goals for your video project and your organization on a whole. Based on our findings, we put together a creative approach and project budget that is specifically designed to achieve your goals. Before filming begins, we create a storyboard and supporting documents that outline your video(s) and gives us a roadmap for executing our vision.
During the production phase of your project we crew up, flick on the lights, hit record on the cameras and film your content. Our team can film at your location, in a studio setting, or we can source a location for you.
You know it's important to finish strong–and so do we. That's why we take the utmost care to treat your footage right by blending it seamlessly with music tracks, SFX, and motion graphics. We also store and archive your video content so you can rest assured that it will be around for years to come.
How much will my video cost?
Costs for video projects can vary significantly based on your video's style, length, and many other variables. Before we begin work on any project we work with you to determine the best budget for your project. If you already have a set budget, we'll put together a proposal that outlines what we can offer within your budget.
How long will it take?
The timeline for a video project will vary depending on many factors, but in general we're able to begin work on your project within 1-2 weeks of you reaching out to us and many projects can be completed within 3-5 weeks.
We are able to rush deliver projects that are on particularly tight deadlines. We do this on a project-by-project basis and additional fees may apply.
Does your team work in my area?
The Big River Team is East-coast based with Delaware and Syracuse, NY being our home bases. Unless it's imperative for your project that it's filmed in a specific location, you don't need to constrain yourself to hiring a production company that's based in your area. We offer tons of options for producing your project remotely without sacrificing quality or overspending on your project.
Additionally, our team consistently travels to work across the U.S. and internationally on projects that don't take place in our back yard. For these types of projects, travel costs may need to be considered.
Where will my videos be filmed?
Generally speaking, the location for a video production will fall into one of two categories: on location, or in a studio.
For on location shoots, we either use a space that you already have access to or we work to source and secure a location for you.
For studio shoots, we work in a studio setting to produce your content. Studio shoots may also involve constructing a set within the studio for filming.
If you're not sure about the best location for your shoot we can work with you in the pre-production phase to decide the best location based on your budgets and needs.
How much of my time is involved in the process?
Any video project is generally going to require your involvement in some capacity. Depending on the scope of your project, we may need to schedule a few short meetings to make sure we're on the same page. From there, we can often times e-mail our way through many of the details. For larger projects, we may need to schedule multiple longer meetings and work together to hone in on your project.
No matter what, you will need to be able to commit to being a part of the process!
