How much does it cost?
We knew that would be your first ask! Although we pride ourselves on competitive pricing, the short answer is ‘it depends’.
It depends because the following factors need consideration before providing an accurate quote.
- The number of filming locations involved
- The amount of time we need to film your content
- The number of crew members required for the shoot
- The complexity of the edit
- The number of videos you’d like us to produce
- Turnaround time
- Whether presenters, voiceovers or other unique elements are required.
We’re used to working with clients with budgets big and small, so we’ll likely find the cost-effective solution you’re looking for.
How does the process work?
Video production comes in the following three phases.
Pre-production: First, we find out about you and your business. Then we work with you to identify your objectives and desired outcome from your video campaign.
We’ll consider your target audience, the platforms you want to promote, and your key messages. From there, we’ll outline the video concept, confirm your budget and book your filming dates.
Let’s get rolling!
Production: This is the fun part; filming! Our videographers capture everything we need to make your video pop, including live/event footage, interviews, location shots, drone footage and loads more.
Filming usually happens at your premises or one of the thousands of stunning Liverpool locations on offer. What a city, by the way. No wonder the big-name directors come here to shoot TV and film.
Post-production: It’s time to get creative. With the footage in the can, our team will work on your edit. Editing includes cutting down and polishing the footage so it’s nice and shiny. We then arrange the shots into a narrative that makes audiences take action.
We’ll add captions, graphics, music and titles as required and then provide a draft. On the off chance you don’t like the first cut, let us know, and we’ll rework it until you’re happy*. The final video will be sent as a downloadable file via a secure hyperlink.
All that’s left to do is hit publish!
*Additional fees may apply for extra filming or editing time.
How long should my video be?
One of the best things about promotional videos is that they don’t need to be a full feature-length film to get your point across.
As specialists in short-form videos for social, we recommend that your video be 2 minutes in duration at most, but as the media landscape is changing, we can create shorter, portrait-style videos too.
A couple of minutes may not sound like a lot! But, according to data from Dr James McQuivey, 1 minute of video equals 1.8 million words. So with a 2-minute video, we’re talking more than 3.5 million words worth of info!
Still think you’ll need more time to get across complex information? Don’t worry. We excel in long-form videos, too.
Do I have to be on camera?
Not if you don’t want to be! We’ll never force you to appear in a video if you don’t fancy it. But if it suits the brief and you’re happy for us to film you, we’ll prepare you for your close-up…
What’s the turnaround time?
Speedy service is a big part of what makes The Guide Liverpool the go-to video production company for the brands and businesses you love.
You can typically expect to receive a first draft no later than 10 working days after the final shoot date. If, for some reason, this isn’t possible, we’ll always let you know in advance.
Do you do drone filming?
Yes! With CAA-licensed drone pilots on our team, we’re just as boss at capturing quality videos (and stills) from the sky.
Drone filming isn’t available in all locations, so a site visit and safety check are required.
Is health and safety a priority?
Of course. It’s our policy to make all necessary site visits pre-filming to ensure your staff’s and our safety.
We’re fully licensed and insured for most locations. And we’ll never suggest filming in a dangerous situation or place.
Unless you want to send Josh for a skydive.
What kit do you use?
Although we occasionally capture footage on a mobile phone if the project requires it, we film all our professionally shot promotional videos on broadcast-quality 4k cameras.
Additional kit includes radio and lapel mics, lighting, green and blue screens, drones, dollys and more. So rest assured; we have everything you need to create best-in-class videos.
Will my video go viral?
We’d like to say yes, but video content has no guarantees.
It’s our view that anyone who says they can make your video go viral is telling fibs.
However, one of the benefits of working with The Guide Liverpool is the opportunity to promote your content across our platforms.
Every month we have 130,000 unique visitors to our site and reach more than 7 million people on socials.
We don’t guarantee video views, but promoting your campaign with us will defo make it bang.
When do I pay?
We ask for a 50% deposit to secure your booking. The balance is due when your video project is complete.
If you really like what we do, then a retainer package may be for you. They’re outstanding value and our most popular option.
When can we start?
Great question! If you’re ready to talk about a start date with The Guide Liverpool, contact one of our video production experts today for a no-obligation chat.
