How long does it take to produce a video?

To be completely honest, this is a ‘how long is a piece of string’ question. The best way to work out long it takes and how much it will cost is to have a chat about what it is you are wanting to create. From there we can give you a few options, explaining how long they will take to both film and edit. If you like what you hear we’ll send you a formal quote. 

Another option is to find something on our website that you like or email though an example video.

To provide an accurate quote it is helpful for us to know:

  • What kind of video are you looking for (piece to camera, corporate, event, promotional)?

  • Will there be any interviews? (If yes, how many)

  • Do you need product shots? (If yes, how many products)

  • Do you need B roll/cutaway shots? 

  • Number of locations?

  • Length of video required.

  • Do you require text overlay/animations? 

No sure what you are after?

We are more than happy to have a zero obligation chat with you to get an idea of what it is you are trying to achieve and help come up with creative solutions to get you started.

Adric from Sure Shot Film was wonderful. Was able to make my imagination come to life and no request was too much. I am really happy with my video and would recommend to any one wanting a great quality video.
