Oh ok.

Cool idea. I wasn't really able to to tell the old movie effects from the lower quality quicktime file, but overall the movie did look good.

Would have been twice as good at half as long.

Prices

According to our station's ratecard the going price of that commercial should have been $1025.00, but clients often recieve "give me's" and discounts when buying on-air packages.

This commercial was one of those instances.

The time table for production on this spot was:

2.5 hours field production
2 hours editing

I'm curious as to what your markets would price a spot that took the above mentioned time to create. I look forward to hearing.

I was more curious on the cost of the South Metro Automotive spot you posted.

I've been doing a lot of work for clients who are looking for a low cost alternative to the TV stations here. The stations will generally shoot the spots for free, but then getting dubs from them to run on other stations becomes a hassle. Also, the production value is generally low, and all the spots look the same.

Most of the spots I have been doing are for car dealerships (lately). So I rarely go out and shoot 1 spot. Usually (like tomorrow) I'll go out, and we'll shoot 3 or 4 at once. I take about an hour or two shooting the talent, and then another hour or two shooting B-roll of the dealership, service dept, etc.

I generally take 1-2 days of editing and deliver the master to the agency when it's done.

The cost usually winds up being around 750 - 1000 per spot, depending on how many we shoot.
(about 4K for the whole job)

Keep in mind this is a basic head shot, cut to Broll, head shot, cut to dealership, end with title graphics - type of spot.

I go out and shoot alone, maybe have someone there for broll footage, and I do all the post myself. So I have virtually zero overhead. Oh yeah, and I'm working out of the house.

The price I stated was the price for the South Metro Automotive spot. It alone theoretically cost $1025, had the client actually been billed. With the on-air package they purchased they got the spot for free.

Had I billed for the same spot as a freelancer my price would have been $1015.


Luis, when you started out freelancing, how did you get the attention and business of your local agencies? Right now I'm doing mainly business that comes straight from a client or a referral, but I want to get some agency work as well.

one comment

I saw the site. nice layout. Just one thing you might wantto change with that trailer. You might want to select music that is not off a royalty freesite. I can't even count how many times ive heard and used myself that music which i believe is off freeplay or from apple. I can't recall. A doc with the subject matter you are covering deserves better than that.

The Game Genie 2

The Game Genie 2

Code:
Ever so often, videogame companies set out to make a 
videogame system that will rule the world.

This time they got their wish...
         
An Evil Corporation plans a beta testing contest in which 
the 2  winners will get to test their new console, 
The XcubeStation. 

Overjoyed and unaware of The XcubeStation’s power, the 
first beta tester (Tim-E Wiley) and his friend  (Kevin Raines)
turn on the system. With the XcubeStation powered on two
 Evil Co. employee’s, Adam (Adam Funk) and Alex
(Alex Diffenderfer) are on the boys every move to make 
sure that everything is 
excuted as they had planned.
 
Now, caught between the real world and the videogame 
world Tim-E and Kevin set out to find the second beta 
tester  (Travis Maynard) to put an end to Evil Co....

Once and for all....

Let the games begin.
First full length movie I directed and edited.

Nothing spectacular. No fancy camera, or camera work.

Just for entertainment.

I thought I would share.

That file is 450 MB large. Most people are not going to download
something that huge. How long is the runningtime?

It is a full movie.

It's a hour long. I compressed it as much as I could.

Sorry for the filesize.

That's a BIG D/L

You could cut it into chapters. Make it more palatable for those who might take a look at it.
