Most frequent questions and answers
This is the million-dollar question we get asked the most. The answer really depends on several factors.
- The number of filming locations involved
- Filming duration and size of the crew needed.
- The complexity of edited video
- Number of videos to be produced
We work with a spectrum of clients with varying budgets, so whatever your requirements are, we will find a solution. Give us a ring, and we can always go through the different options so that we can provide you with an accurate proposal that you can work with.
Again it really depends on the project requirements and clients expectations. A good guide for a three to four minutes corporate video project would require:
A week of scriptwriting
Three days of video filming
Two weeks of video editing/post production including motion graphics
A week of revisions
Of course, we can always be flexible. For the record, we have completed a four-minute IPO corporate video presentation within a week that included three days of filming in China. To be clear, client paid a premium for this special case.
There are 3 different areas in the video production process, namely pre-production, production and post-production. Pre-production is basically all the things that need to be done before filming begins, i.e. discussions, scriptwriting, site recce etc. Production is the filming process which in most cases is very dependable on the script. Pre-production is where the editing begins, which incorporates voice-over recording, colour grading, soundtrack mixing and compression into the desired format for broadcast.
Pre-production is the most important phase (to us at least) as the absence of this phase will amount to nothing being produced. Any mistakes done at this phase might result in a major disruption on even a re-work for the other two phases.

7 Quick Tips for Producing Videos You Will Be Proud To Share
In the interest of not having to come across another video that has been painfully self-produced, we are more than happy to share some tips with you.
The tips in this guide don’t make you an expert. They’re here to help you shoot better videos, not to replace the skill and ingenuity that comes from devoting your existence to video production.
Keep it Planned
You can avoid having to watch hours of footage and skip the boring planning and planning stages by preplanning. Yes, it’s a lot of work but if you plan your video from the very beginning you will save yourself time in the long run. Producing videos are just like most things in life, you need to do the boring stuff first.
Keep it Steady
If you are about to shoot a film, the camera should be steady. Only if it’s for a horror movie or something similar should you use hand-held cameras. Stabilization is standard equipment in almost every professional production; it doesn’t matter if your project is professional or not.
A cheap tripod is easy to find, and will keep your digital camera steady. Take a look on Amazon and you can easily pick up a tripod for $25 or less. This isn’t going to be the best one but it is likely to last longer than most of the others out there.
Keep it Clear
The microphone built in to your camera isn’t good for much other than providing you with subpar sound. Because a microphone performs best when it is closest to the subject it is recording. The microphone on your camera is closest to you, not what you are filming.
Small, inconspicuous wireless microphones for your DSLR and smartphone are available online. They aren’t the quality of a $1K microphone, but they’ll do you fine for recording on the go.
Keep it Short
A filmmaker knows how to cut the fat. Anything that isn’t absolutely necessary to the message of your video should be shaved away. Remember, unless you have a captivated audience, online viewers generally cannot be bothered to devote more than 2 minutes of their precious time to your masterpiece. You will end up with a very appreciative audience
Keep it Simple
Yes, we know that the editing software your computer came with has some fancy titles and neat effects built on. These little flourishes often seduce amateur videographers, only to alienate audiences. More often than not, it can be quite painful to watch if you use too many.
You see, the thing is that there are hundreds of other videos employing these free effects as well. And, most of these effects are exceptionally corny, trust us. Simplicity is beautiful; look at Apple! Please keep it simple and keep it from looking like your Uncle’s awful vacation video.
Keep it Real
If you or a colleague decide to be a presenter and you are using your smartphone to record, the one big mistake most people make is to look at themselves on the phone screen. You should always look into the lens when you present and not be bothered by how you look. You are talking to an audience so look at them. Also, never start with “Hey Friends” or “Hey Gang”. Be direct with your script. You must bear in mind that you are talking to one person. So make them feel that way.
Keep it Up!
The more you shoot and edit, the better you will get. You can’t expect your first video to be Spielberg quality. As with anything else in life, put in the time to see the results. Experiment and see what works.
Regardless of what you do, there’s a good chance your first video will be terrible. But if you pay attention to what you’re doing, it’ll help you learn. The knowledge you pick up during your first shoot will inform the second one and so forth. Continue shooting until things go well.
Now that you have learned the fundamentals of shooting, take some time out to get your portfolio together. Get out there and do it for yourself; learn from your mistakes, and turn out a content that you will be proud share. Your other option is to get help from professionals, and we are here for you.
